I booked 4 nights at the Hotel Cabin for 2 couples in superior rooms for our trip to Iceland. I did the research before and was fully aware of the room sizes etc from the hotels website and Tripadvisors reviews. We were very pleased and our expectations were met. The location of the Hotel Cabin was not a problem at... More

Stayed here on a school trip with 70 kids in tow. Rooms were small but perfectly adequate. It was very clean, and bed was really comfy; I had a great night's sleep! Breakfast was tasty with a good selection. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the cabin and upgraded. The rooms are very basic but if you are just getting your head down there that's fine. Breakfast is ample. Staff were very helpful and cheery and always obliging. There is a subway right opposite and a garage. Out of the hotel to the left is a 24 hour shop and a bit... More

We stayed here in Jan 2014 after booking a 3 night package deal. Hotel is very close to the beautiful water side with icy mountains and lovely picture opportunities. The hotel is in a business district and it takes around 25-30 to walk to the centre of town, but the walk is also lovely all along the water front. The... More

The rooms are certainly small with little room all facilities provided. Shower and basin tiny, beds narrow, wardrobe largely unusable. But it was quiet and comfortable as a base for exploring Reykjavik.

The hotel name certainly suits the rooms as they are like cabins on a ship. They are not very big, but it does as it says on the tin. The rooms are suitably appointed, and we certainly do not go abroad to spend lots of time in the hotel.. Comfortable single beds, en-suite bathroom, reasonable cost for Iceland, what more... More
