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 Reykjavík 101
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.

The Nest Apartment was a lovely choice in an excellent location. It was neat, comfortable, nicely decorated and the view from the deck was awesome. Parking was no problem just a short block away. The owners provided a very informative guide with maps and recommendations for eating and shopping in Reykjavík. Would definitely recommend a stay in this excellent apartment.
Great little place! Quiet, comfortable and close to town!
Easy, good follow up information from owners on the details for accessing the rental.
EASY to find prime location super clean. We stayed on top floor. If it is hard for you to walk it is a 3 floor walk up and may not be for you. We did not mind the stairs and parking was easy to pay for on street.
Perfect base for explorations near Reykjavik
The apartment was really lovely and because it's on the top floor actually has a nice view from the balcony. The kitchen is small but has all you need. There were three different ways to make coffee, though not the typical American drip coffee maker. Also the apartment is apparently in the old town part of Reykjavik, which has pedestrian friendly streets and lots of good restaurants and shops.
The apartment is on the top floor, and has the slopes in the ceiling to prove it. We ran into them a few times. It makes the usable space of the rooms a little less, but I thought it was perfect for two people. Another thing to be aware of is that there are no black out curtains. There are shades in the bedroom which make it less bright, but if you feel that you need total darkness to sleep invest in a decent sleep mask. None of the places we stayed had curtains that made the rooms really dark.
The parking situation isn't a huge concern. They only charge during the day, from 9 to 6 if I remember correctly, and that's when you're more likely to be out exploring.
Overall this was a clean and thoughtfully set up apartment in a great location, and I would definitely stay here again.
The perfect spot
The Nest apartments are perfect for anyone looking to stay in and explore downtown Reykjavík. They have everything you need, are clean, comfortable and perfectly located. We would definitely stay again if we find ourselves there on another journey!
A wonderful place to stay in Reykjavik
As the owner says, the NEST apartments are a wonderful place to stay in Reykjavik. We stayed in the N (Top floor apartment) and found it delightful. Everything we needed was in the apartment and its was very comfortable and warm. Very close to the Hallgrimskirkja and everything that Reykjavik has to offer. We loved the apartment and we will be back soon.
The apartment is perfectly located in a quiet residential area in the center of Reykjavik. Main attractions, swimming pool, restaurants, bars, shops are close by. Hallgrimskirkja church is only a 3-5 minute walk from the apartment.
