About Jon Thorvaldsson

My name is Jon and i have been living in Reykjavik for over 20 years. Before that i lived in my old hometown of Akranes. I studied Computer Sciences at the University of Iceland and later did an MBA program at Reykjavik University. I currently work for the city of Reykjavik as Director of IT. I have rented this property to travellers since 2008 with great success. I live in the same building which allows me to respond quickly to any request my guests may have.

Jon Thorvaldsson purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Jon Thorvaldsson chose Miðborg

This is a unique property and one of the few modern buildings in the central part of town. The location is ideal with all sights and attractions in the centre within walking distance and yet the area is relatively quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

Some of the unique benefits of this property include the spectacular view from the top floor in all directions. My guests are provided with a mobile phone with a local number as well as mobile WiFi hotspot which allows you to share your digital memories instantly, wherever you are. A private in-house parking space can be reserved during your stay. The apartment is equipped with an Apple TV, iPhone docking station, exceptionally large bath-tub and other amenities, all aimed at making your stay as convenient as possible.

Perfect apartment, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Reykjavík and our beautiful apartment was perfect. Jon was very attentive and easy to reach. The apartment was warm, sunny and clean. The location was great, walking distance to everything. Lots of great restaurants nearby. I would recommend this apartment and will stay again next time we’re in Reykjavik.

What a great spot and an awesome host

  • 5 of 5

We loved our spot and Jon was an awesome host. Central to Reykjavik and we walked and walked. Even though we arrived late at night Jon was ready for us and always available for some advice or help. You will be happy you stayed here if you book.

Fantastic! Center of town. Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Reykjavik is one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited and thanks to THOR and his staff, this apartment made it even better. My wife and I traveled with our 2 girls under 7 and this apartment was exactly what we needed. We had very clean apartment, had enough space to stretch out, had a grocery store downstairs and could easily walk all over the city within 5 to 10 minutes. The apartment even has 2 balconies which we enjoyed each and every night. Thor even gave us a local phone and hot spot to travel with during our stay! I would highly recommend Reykjavik and insists to friends and family to stay in this apartment.

This apartment is better than the VRBO listing!

  • 5 of 5

VRBO:

Jon and his apartment were outstanding. However, my purse was stolen just down the street from his apartment which made the trip's end difficult, to say the least. Jon was great driving me to the bus station in his car and loaning me $100 to get out of the country. He went beyond the call of duty here. However, it's been over a month since my purse was stolen on July 22nd. The Reykjavik police are not too focused on solving my case. A shop camera was operating on the crime scene, a suspect has been identified as a regular customer by a shop employee, and little has come of any investigation when too much evidence is still at hand. Iceland is opening up to the world, undergoing rapid change with immigration, tourism and now has to deal with all the problems of other traditionally traveled countries. Would I go back to Iceland again? Only for a targeted reason. If I would have that reason, Jon's apartment would be my first choice in downtown Reykjavik.

Owner's Response: I'm glad I could help you out after your tragic incident. It has to be noted that incidents like this (theft of personal property in public places) are very rare in Iceland.

Beautifully designed apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful and has every thing needed to enjoy it. The views are wonderful. The location is ideal. The owner was a great host, he made us feel welcome, then left us to enjoy the place. There were three of us, 2 adults and our 18 year old son. We had plenty of room. We highly recommend the place.

Perfect Reyjkavik Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Jon was 100% responsive and thoughtful. He made sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is perfectly located right in the middle of everything and very nice - exactly as pictured. We had the best Indian dinner of our lives based on one of his restaurant recommendations - it's right around the corner.
