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 Hlíðar

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.

Beautiful and very convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Very conveniently located. Quiet area, yet close to restaurants and shops within walking distance. Definitely a home away from home with all the conveniences of home. One thing to remember if you plan on doing laundry, there isn’t a washer or dryer. There is a dry cleaner/laundromat around the corner where they do it for you for a price by weight. Something to think about when packing and planning. Other than that, excellent place and would definitely return and recommend to everyone.

Clean comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great location for this one bedroom flat with kitchen, living room and dining room. View from the balcony overlooks the inlet and the mountains. The pal e was super clean and comfortable. Bjorn was very accommodating

Kitchen includes a fridge, oven, microwave, tea pot and Nespresso machine. Cable TV , DVD player and Wi-Fi along with some DVDs, books and games.

Being located two blocks from the church and two blocks from the bars, restaurants and shops was great.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from our Iceland trip and we had the most amazing stay at the Nest apartements “E” as our base camp for exploring the island.

I can’t say enough good things about our home-away-from-home. It was clean, nicely decorated and immediately made us feel at home. It provided us with all the accommodations that one could possibly look for in a vacation home, even a fantastic Nespresso coffee maker, that guaranteed you a phenomenal cup of coffee in the mornings after long nights of northern lights watching from the balcony.

Björn is an amazing host, that is always reachable via email and will help with all your needs.

The only bad thing that I can think of in regards to our visit is, that it was not longer.
