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.

Home away from home again!

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at Nest reaffirmed that it is truly a home away from home. We returned to Nest after staying here 2 years ago and brought another couple along. Bjorn was easy to reach and responsive to our needs. The apartment was spotless and had comfortable beds (including the sofa bed in living room) and very nice bedding. Inclusion of coffee, spices, shampoo and shower soap are nice additions.

The apartment is in central Reykjavik near Hallgrimskirkja and easy to walk everywhere. We split our time between here and Snaefellsness so we had a car and found it easy to park on the street. I would definitely recommend Nest apartments and hope to return again soon!

Great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stop on a girls' trip around Iceland. The apartment is in a great, quiet location with easy access to everything in Reykjavik. We stayed for two nights and the four of us were very comfortable. We had everything necessary to prepare meals (eating out every meal in Iceland is not reasonable on a budget) and it was easy to find free parking for our car. The apartment decor is clean and simple and the owner was very helpful, sending a detailed PDF with points of interest prior to our arrival. Two of the girls on the trip ended up taking the bus from the airport which they said was easy to do and close to the apartment. I definitely recommend this rental.

Great location poor privacy

  • 3 of 5

The location of apartment "S" was brilliant for the centre of Reykjavik , only a few minutes from the beautiful church. A 15 min walk from the main bus depot and less than 10 minutes to the main high street.

The apartment itself was very spacious, very nicely decorated and very warm;

Privacy however was a different matter. The bathroom had only frosting on the windows and as we could see out you always thought someone could see in. The kitchen had absolutely nothing and not even a door, this might not seem a problem except for the fact that it was directly opposite the main bedroom so trips to the bathroom at night were tricky.

The kitchen is a little lacking in equipment such as a microwave and other bits and pieces.

Noise seemed to be a big issue within the whole building, doors banging, neighbors and people 2 floors above all could be heard quite clearly, especially at 2am

Would we go to Iceland again - Yes

Would we go to Reykjavik again - Possibly

Would we stay here again - No

Owner's Response: As a response to this review we want to say that the sand films in the bathroom are not see-through. We have small decorative openings in the film so not to block out the nice view completely but it is not possible to see anything through these small openings from the outside as this is on the second floor and facing our private garden. The kitchen is open and there is no need for a door, there is a corridor between the bedroom and kitchen and we doubt that anyone from the houses 30 or 40 meters away can see into the corridor, through the kitchen, at night. We are not interested in having microwave ovens in our apartments but the large oven and hub should be quite enough. We focus on having the kitchens well equipped and our other guests have been pleased. There are four apartments in the house and of course you can be aware of other people's presence the house. There is only one apartment on each floor and soundproofing is as regulated in Europe.

a wonderful base from which to explore

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent apartment, clean and well furnished for our stay. All appliances etc were in working order and there was sufficient cutlery, crockery etc for us to be able to prepare basic meals and breakfasts.

The only downside was that it faced onto what could, on occasions be a busy and noisy street, not something over which the owner had any control, but something to be aware of.

The service after booking was excellent with prompt responses to queries and payment was easily done via paypal. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to friends and family.

Perfect Stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Truly loved this place! We stayed in apt S..... Quaint, quiet, comfortable, clean and great location. Tastefully designed as you can see in the photos. The photos do a nice job of showing honestly what you get here. Loved that we could come back from walking the city, and feel like we were coming home to our own little apartment. Theres a wonderful local coffee shop around the corner and only a 3 min walk to main shopping area with retail stores and restaurants. Being on a small side street you don't hear traffic or people walking by which is nice. We stayed at a hotel for one night on a main street in the old town center and it was very noisy, we were wishing we were back at NEST! The owner, Bjorn was easy to contact and prompt with the bookings, very helpful and provided a great detailed map and interest points to check out while visiting, including restaurants, cafes, and stores. Wish we could have stayed longer and would love to stay again!
