Very clean, nice and professional staff. Yes, the rooms are smaller than what someone might be used to but this was not a problem for us. You have all of the amenities you need (you have to pay for internet). Good location, quiet, near a bus stop, many choices for breakfast. Good shades on the windows so we were able to sleep in without the sun coming into our room. We would definitely stay there again. Really appreciated theTripadvisor reviews we saw on this so we knew what to expect.

We were a group of four friends and booked two rooms. The rooms were in excellent condition and had an amazing view of the ocean. The price was pretty decent considering the room quality. We were even upgraded to a superior room free of charge..A Surprise! for us.

All in all it was a pleasant stay.

We booked with IcelandAir as a package. We booked 2 single rooms and they only reserved 1 twin room. When we showed them our voucher they gave us another twin room. We were happy with this as these rooms were quite small, big enough for 1 person but very tight for 2 people! The beds were average, the bathroom was small but modern, the space was kept clean and tidy. We had rooms which had an external window - some rooms had a window that looked on to the corridor which wouldn't have pleased me - might be worth requesting that your room has an external window. Rooms have a radiator that you control, good for the cold April when we went! Internet is pay to use in the lobby or wifi in the building. Breakfast is of good quality, we had it included, it was a buffet style and there was a lot to choose from, although mainly European style. There is a bar area downstairs. Location wise we walked into town in 15 minutes. Overall we were happy with our experience here. Overall 4/5 rating.

The Hotel Cabin in Reykjavik is one of the lower priced hotels and is located a little bit outside of town. We arrived at the hotel by bus coming from the Blue Lagoon, as this is a popular hotel and is one of the pick up/ drop off stops for all the tours / buses / airport transit, which makes it a great spot to be stationed at throughout your trip. We checked in and presented our documents to the rather surely front desk attendant. Their English was great but I will reiterate what other have said about their attitude. They aren't rude or mean, simply surely and unfriendly. I learned that this isn't anything against you or anything we were doing wrong, it's simply a common attitude for Icelanders to have in this situation.


The lobby was very clean and modern and the dinning area was huge and the lounge (complete with 2 computers with internet access// extra cost) was a perfect little sitting area with a bar near by for a drink after a long day out. Our room was on the 5th floor and we took the elevator up to our room. The elevator was fast and we got off on our floor. There was another sitting area in the middle of the floor complete with couches, chairs and tables. The room door was a bit confusing to open since it isn't a standard north American door but we figure it out and go in the room.

Yes, it is small but it was clean and had everything we needed. Bed, bathroom, tv and a small table and closet. We had a great view of the ocean from our window which was a great bonus. We had the standard room but you can upgrade to the deluxe (pictured below) or the superior for extra cost, they are a little more spacious but for the price and the short stay we had, this was perfect. For longer stays I would suggest maybe upgrading. The bathroom was tiny but everything worked very well and the maid service was very efficient and quick. The beds were a bit hard and the curtains didn't shut out the light completely so if you go in the summer, bring an eye mask!

One of the highlights of the Hotel is their breakfast. Open for 3 hours in the morning and complimentary with your stay you get a huge array of food. They have a very opulent spread! From traditional North American breakfast foods to original Icelandic dishes - the breakfast offered here is one of the best parts of your stay. They even have sandwich fixings so if you're sneaky, you can make a sandwich for lunch and stuff it in a ziploc bag if you've got one (Great Tip!). We had a very early flight to catch in the morning on our last day and even though they say breakfast starts at 7am and lasts till 10am they opened the breakfast room at 4:45am for all of us who had the 5:30 bus to catch to the airport. It was so nice of them and a great thing to have to get your energy up for a long travel day ahead of you.

All in all I really liked the Hotel Cabin. It was basic but I loved the savings we got and we could then spend the money on traveling around and seeing more of this beautiful country! I fully recommend this hotel, just go in knowing it will be small and plan to spend your time exploring the city and the hotel for breakfast and sleeping :)

Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were lovely evn helping when I needed to get to A&E locally.

Breakfast was standard fare - continental. Rooms were small, very small ! but did the job, we had a twin room. Bathroom was too small for me with a shower only, but we booked via Iceland Air and it was good budget deal.

I probably wouldn't stay there again as would want a larger room next time and mabe more in town to the centre. There are nice views thou!
