Interaction with Guests
Depends on them, I am a social person but If people want privacy they can have it, but if they want to socialize then I like having people around.
I am right downtown but just far enough a way to avoid the noise.
the main bus HLEMMUR is just 2 min walk away.
And the long distance bus terminal BSI is about 15 min walk away.
For those coming with the flybus they can ask for a dropoff a "Fosshótel Lind" on the next courner
No smocking except on the balcony.
Flexible check-in and check-out times. If nobody if leaving or arriving on the same day, you can check iIn/Out as early as you like. Which can be great for those coming in with the morning flight.
Our stay at Daniel's was fantastic!
Everything was as great as it looked in the pictures and even though other people were staying in the apparent at the same time, we felt like we had total privacy.
Staying with Daniel we feel like we got the true Icelandic experience: he made us breakfast, took us swimming, gave us recommendations to non-touristy restaurants, and more. On top of this he was extremely helpful in making sure our trip went smoothly: he picked us up when we first arrived, he answered any questions we had, offered to drive us places, and more. He was a perfect host and we will be sure to come again.
Also he has two really adorable dogs :)
Super, Daniel has changed his time for us. He cames in the middle of the night to come in. Realy good. Thanks à lot.
Daniel took us in after an overnight flight, getting our room ready at 7 in the morning, and made us feel his home was ours. His place is located so you can walk to the main restaurant/shopping street, the harbor, and one or more swimming pools. It is also around the corner from the Foss Hotel Lindy, one of the Flybus stops to and from the airport. The room was as described and we had the run of the apartment- bathroom with great shower, and washers and dryers downstairs.
One of the best parts of airbnb's is talking with hosts and guests with a wide range of experience and I had several conversations with Daniel that taught me about Iceland, or were just plain interesting. I recommend his place in Reykjavik.
Daniel a été très flexible concernant l'heure d'arrivée, ainsi nous avons pu déposer nos bagages le matin avant de repartir visiter la capitale. Le logement est proche d'une station de bus bien desservie, ambiance plutôt tranquille dans la rue qui est à proximité d'une grande rue commerçante.
Accueil chaleureux, café, plans à disposition, conseils pour la meilleure piscine (ou plage) du coin, etc. Rien à redire !
The location of Daniel's apartment is great, just a few minutes walk from the Main Street. We were given a warm welcome by Daniel and his 2 dogs and had a great chat before we headed out into town for the evening. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. It's a shame we had to leave quite early in the morning the following day, it would have been great to join him for a hike! Perhaps next time when we return! Thank you very much!
Un grand merci à Daniel qui s'est rendu très disponible pour nous renseigner. il nous a très bien accueillis. Le quartier est calme, on peut se garer facilement et surtout le centre ville est accessible à pied. Un appart ou on se sent bien...
L'hôte est charmant et nous a très bien accueilli. La chambre est confortable, avec toutes commodités, et l'appartement est très bien situé.

About the Host, Daniel
I am 42 year old currently doing a phd in computational genetics. I love outdoor activity such as biking hiking and swimming in the sea. I am easygoing host and try to be non intrusive but many people that have stayed here have joined me on hiking or sea swimming trips :) The two tiny dogs that live here are 1,6 and 2,1 Kg they do not bark at people the see all guests as new friends and potential source of petting.
