About Björn Valdimarsson

We the owners, Björn and Liba, have offered holiday apartments in Reykjavik from 2009 with very good reviews from our guests. We also had a barn in Tuscany for few years that was a great success. We have now purchased this house in the old centre of Reykjavik. The house was built in 1927, there we have restored four apartments, one on each floor. We have travelled a lot through the years and have good experience with self catering apartments. We think this kind of accommodation, good apartments at the best places is the way to go now and in the future.

Björn Valdimarsson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Björn Valdimarsson chose Reykjavik

The apartment is newly restored with great care. The property is right in the old centre of Reykjavik, you can walk to shops, restaurants, bars and main attractions in town. Still this is a quiet area and everybody that comes to the house loves it.

What makes this apartment unique

The nice garden and view to mount Esja and over the roof tops of the old town. The luxury of having a great coffee house on the corner, bakery, grocery store, restaurants and a swimming pool right at hand.

Our stay was fabulous. The house was perfectly well appointment, warm and cozy. The location was within walking distance of everything you need to see and do downtown. Never needed to drive anywhere.

Great location, lovely clean apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment with a wonderful view across the roof tops. The beds were comfortable, the apartment was clean and well equipped. The kitchen had most things you need (although no chopping board to protect the lovely wooden worktops!). Some basics were provided including tea and coffee. The owner was very helpful and answered all queries quickly. We would definitely book this apartment again.

Great apartment - great location

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the attic space at the NEST apartments at the end of October. This location is so close to the action yet on a quiet street. We loved the views over the city and the colorful rooftops. So easy to walk everywhere we wanted. The directions and tips provided by the owner were easy to follow and so helpful to decide restaurants and locations to visit. We would definitely rent this space again!

Perfect Location, Exactly What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

The NEST Apartments were great, they are right in the center of the city, only a street away from Hallgrímskirkja. The apartment itself was roomy and comfortable with a great view of the harbor. I couldn't recommend these apartments highly enough.
