It is small yes but the name implies that already. For this budget a very neat and tidy room with own bathroom. Even when you leave at 4 to 6 AM there is a small breakfast present. Staff is helpfull and speaks English. Gas station, pizzeria, monument and city centre very near. No complaining at all.

very well run!... When I was there 3 months ago it was heaving with guests and the staff were trying hard to operate a new software system... The slow elevators rubbish... The room? - Everything was clean and in good repair - if a bit small!

Dear Ade F, We appreciate you taking the time to make us aware of your experience at our hotel during your recent visit to Reykjavík. We agree the rooms are small but they are fully equipped with everything you need and also include a free continental breakfast. They are about 10 m2 and we are proud to be able to offer a budget stay in Reykjavík for a budget price. For those, such as yourself, there is always an option to book a larger room and get more space. We have two lifts at our property. The other one is close by the WC on the first floor. We are sorry to hear that you thought that they were too slow, however, we appreciate your feedback. With that being said, we are pleased your overall stay was an enjoyable experience and we look forward to welcoming you back the next time you are in Reykjavík. Best regards // Hotel Cabin team

We went to our room on arrival and immediately about turned, went back down stairs and upgraded to superior room. The standard room was nice enough, clean and did have windows but sooooo small, we couldn’t have coped there for 4 nights. Superior room was much better and suited us just fine. Staff were really lovely and helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. Breakfast had a good choice of cereals, toast, porridge, continental breakfast, fruit, juice and coffee, so something for everyone. I personally wouldn’t stay there again, but for anyone looking for a good budget hotel, I would totally recommend it.

This hotel is a cheap stay pleasant enough I upgraded to the superior room which was very nice had a raindrop shower which was amazing to wake you up in the morning. The only downfall was the breakfast or lack of it for me its literally sliced meat egg sliced cheese some sliced fruit yogurt bread or porridge. Made do with what was there though. The hotel itself is a bit out the way from the centre of everything but was a pleasant walk to centre especially down the sculpture and shore walk Overall ideal if you want cheap lodgings and dont mind a walk

Dear robmp1984, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your recent stay at Hotel Cabin. Our guest's satisfaction is our main goal. We are pleased to learn that you liked your upgraded room :) Breakfast is always included in our prices and we try to offer a wide selection of choices for our guest. We are sorry if it did not meet your expectations. Regarding our location, it is about 20 minutes walk downtown but we also recommend a short walk in the other direction, only about 5 minutes to Laugardalur valley were you will find the largest outdoor swimming pool in Reykjavík, the botanic garden and the Reykjavík zoo and family park. Thank you once again for your feedback. We hope to welcome you back soon. Best regards, Hotel Cabin team

My friend and I arrived at the hotel about an hour and a half before the check-in time, but that wasn't a problem - we were able to leave our bags in the luggage storage room, and then headed to the salad bar for a tasty lunch. We went back to Reception at 2:00 pm, and although there was a line, it didn't take too long to check in. The room was small, but it looked and felt very cosy. It was clean, and the beds were really comfy. :) The staff were friendly and helpful. When we arrived, it turned out that our tour operator hadn't put me and my friend in the same room, but that was soon sorted out (and our tour leader approved it). The people at Reception were also very knowledgeable, and were able to answer our questions about things to see in the city centre. The hotel was in a great location - we could see the sea from our room, and headed to the seafront several times during our short trip. The city centre itself was just an enjoyable 20-minute walk away. Thanks for everything! I hope to return to Iceland, and this hotel, in the future. :)
