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.

                                                              We rented Nest Apartments unit T just this past weekend for 3 nights. The rental and check-in process was very easy and Bjorn was great to deal with, even allowing us an early check-in after we arrived as the unit was vacant and ready. The apartment is clean, comfortable and convenient to all of the city sights that we wanted to visit. We would certainly recommend it to friends and family and hope to rent it again when we pass through Iceland on our next trip. Thanks Bjorn!!!

                                                              Excellent property and location

                                                              Great property, we had everything we needed. Great location too - a stroll down the hill to the shops/bars/restaurants.

                                                              Staying at Nest was the perfect start of our trip around iceland.

                                                              The location right in the middle of the old Part of Reykjavik was perfect.We got lots of recommondations where to go and enjoyed stepping out of the house being next door to Halgimskirka. The beds were very comfortable and this neat appartement made us feel at Home right away. Try the bred from the Baker "Braud" around the corner.

                                                              Lovely, quaint apartment. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

                                                              The apartment made the trip fantastic. My friends all stayed at a local hotel. It was more expensive and a small, dorm like room.

                                                              We had a kitchen and living room with all the amenities. The building is well looked after and clearly loved by the owner.

                                                              It made our trip to Iceland a far superior experience.

                                                              Good location, very clean, no microwave


                                                              (The photo here is not of the unit we stayed in; ours was on the below-ground level.) Located a quick street over from the big cathedral on a residential street. Four rooms, incl LR. kitchen, bdrm, and bathroom w/shower. Comfy beds. Plenty of dishes/pans if you want to cook and a nice dishwasher, but no microwave to reheat anything. Iceland is a very expensive place to eat, so having a place to prepare your own food helps. Being on the bottom floor, it was noisy when chairs were scraping above us on the wood floors. A rug in the living room would be make it literally warmer. The owner was terrific in responding to our less-than-technical expertise by coming over and showing us how to work the remote and the DVD player for those long evenings of daylight when you just need to relax. (Several DVDs are provided.)

                                                              Nice, confortable place to stay. Great location!!!

                                                              This apartment is very well located in the heart of Reykjavik on a quiet residential street. You can easily walk to all the restaurants and shops. The apartment was clean and very well equipped. I highly recommend this place for a stay in Reykjavik.

                                                              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.
