Booked this as a cheap deal to Iceland through Travelzoo. Have always wanted to go Reyjavik and booked 3 days at the Hotel Cabin. From the outside it looks fine but the rooms are more like prison cells than hotel rooms. We had a twin room but wanted a double and had to physically move furniture out of the room in order to move the beds!
Breakfast is basic but is refreshed a lot by the staff - hard boiled eggs by the hundreds!
The reception staff are less than helpful or friendly!
Everything is so expensive in Iceland - £9 for two coffees and two cookies! About £14 for two beers in a local bar and about £60 for 2 x 2 courses of pub food - take your credit cards!
Would go back to Iceland, but not for quite a few years to come and Hotel Cabin is an example of you get what you pay for - you have been warned!
