About Jonas Olafsson

Me, Jónas Ólafsson and my wife Valdís have been renting out 3 apartments in the center of Reykjavík since 2010.

My profession is Advertising and my wife is a computer scientist, jonaso@islenska.is, my personal mail

Jonas Olafsson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jonas Olafsson chose Miðborg

I´m in the advertising business and my company The Icelandic ad agency (Íslenska) is just across the street and I feel in love with this part of the city and bought few properties to rent out, definitely the nicest part of the center.

What makes this apartment unique

Very simple 'the best location in Reykjavík'

Welcome to Þingholtin, Reykjavík

FULLY LICENSED

This neighbourhood in central Reykjavík is a historic area. In the strictest sense, its name collectively refers to only a handful of streets around Þingholtsstræti, but nowadays, citizens refer to the whole neighbourhood south of Bankastræti as Þingholtin.

Colourful houses are a prominent feature, many of which were built around the turn of the 20th century and in the following decades. Many of Reykjavík’s most affluent citizens made the area their home and there’s history around every corner. Þingholtin draws its name from the farm Þingholt (literally, Parliament Hill), built in the late 18th century when Reykjavík was still just an ecclectic collection of semi-urban farmhouses.

As the neighbourhood is centrally located and close to many official government bodies, it has become a diplomatic centre and many embassies are based here.

When staying in this interesting area, all services are close by and the vibrant city life is but a few footsteps away.

No matter whether you’re in Iceland on business, here for a weekend mini-break or intend to explore more of the country, the Þingholt area is an ideal location.

The neighbourhood is immediately south of Iceland’s main shopping street, where you’ll find a wide range of boutiques, shops, art galleries restaurants, cafés and bars. The Harpa Concert and Conference Hall is within walking distance, where architecture, music and spectacular views go hand in hand.

Buses and coaches are within easy reach, so you can enjoy exploring both the city and the countryside from your base in Þingholtin.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We took a short break in Iceland in October and stayed in the apartment. We actually booked the studio apartment but Jonas upgraded us as this bigger apartment was available. The location is ideal, short walking distance to various Reykjavik tourist attractions, Bonus supermarket and pick up locations for day tours. The apartment had absolutely everything we needed, including kitchen supplies, toiletries and recommendations of local shops and cafes/restaurants, and was really lovely and warm. Wifi very fast and easy to use. Finding the apartment and accessing it with the code supplied was easy. Ideal place if you want to do self catering in Reykjavik - much better than a hotel. Highly recommended - thanks Jonas!

Great!

Good location, close to BSI and an easy walk to the main shopping/restaurant area. Very nice clean apartment. So great to have a few basics in the apartment (coffee, filters, spices). Host was helpful and provided excellent tips!

Cool apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment was good for 2 couples, one in the living room and one in the bathroom. We had no issues with the stay and actually really liked that there was keyless entry - it made coordinating with our friends very easy. I would really recommend staying here. We had a rental car and never once had an issue parking. This was a great space to use for day trips. One note is be mindful of the charge for extra people written within the listing. This is was owed in cash upon leaving and we didn’t quite understand (we assumed it was baked into the price we paid on VRBO but it wasn’t). All in all recommend !

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely vacation with this apartment as our home base. Every excursion leaves from BSI or Hallgrímskirkja—both within a few minutes walk of the apartment. The apartment has plenty of room for our party of 3. Beds were comfortable and warm. Plenty of towels in the bathroom. We cooked breakfast and made some cold lunches in the kitchen and had everything we needed for eggs, tea, toast, and wine and snacks at night. We had no trouble using the dishwasher, oven, and stove. We did not use the washer/dryer combo, but it is there with soap if needed. If you want to go out for every meal, you are a few minutes walk or drive from dozens of great places. We did not rent a car and walked most everywhere. One or two evenings, we found a taxi instead of walking. Neighborhood is a perfect mix of close to everything and far enough away to quiet down in the evenings. We loved our stay here!
