I think there are three types of rooms, very small, superior and delux. We had the superior room and in size it was similar to the usual Premier Inn, Travelodge etc size. We didn't book a standard room as we had read here that they were tiny. They are so don't book a small room and then be surprised it is small! We had a fair sized bathroom and both room and bathroom were clean. Breakfast is included in the price and it is a good continental buffet, could be considered repetitive but I think complaints are unfair.
It's 20 minutes walk to the centre or you can get the bus which is right in front of the hotel.
Eating out in Reykjavik is very very expensive. The buffett offered in the hotel can be considered good value for money but it is really repetitive. The salad bar is fine but always the same, two choices of soup which taste a bit like made out of a packet but OK and then one hot dish which changed every night (we were there five nights) but was unedible rubbish every night. We didn't have the energy to go somewhere else in the evening but if you do, I strongly advise you to do so.
Our experience with Islandic people was that they don't smile when they speak so could give the impression they are unfriendly. I don't know if they are unfriendly but they certainly don't go out of their way to give information or be helpful.
All in all, unless I found something better value for money, I would be happy to stay in the Cabin Hotel again if I returned to Reykjavik.
