Clean, comfortable & good location

Posted 28-Mar-2014
A lovely hotel. Immaculate. We had a deluxe room over looking moutains & sea. The breakfast has lots of choice & good if you are a vegetarian like myself. You can fill up on plenty of food & drinks in the morning. Staff are friendly & helpful. Nice gift shop too. The only thing we missed was a kettle!! Take a travel kettle with you if you stay here as rooms do not have them! Excellent value for money, easy access to motorways if you want to travel. A good base to stay in Reykjavik.

Cheap accomodation within walking distance

Posted 10-Jan-2014
Pros: price location
Cons: cleanliness
Location: we had a short stay so didn';t fully explore laugadur free pool is apparently nearby and the hotel is only one road back from the coast
We chose the Hotel Cabin after reading some reviews on trip advisor. Most reviews commented on the small size of the room, but as were not lookikng for anything more luxurious than a base for other activities it seemed a good idea. They were right the rooms are very cosy and if you are not on very good terms with the person you are travelling with you may consider it a little too cosy. However like I say that suited us. The other thing in the reviews I read was that they were very clean. It is true that every day our beds were made and our towels were changed, though this did not make up for the fact that under our beds were the left overs from previous guests, at the front edge. There was a hip flask, toothbrush, insoles for shoes and the broken lightbulb from our lamp that didn't get fixed despite us asking on the first day. The breakfast was good, fresh daily and plentiful. The staff were mostly friendly and we even booked an excursion through the giftshop. Also we found the drinks in the bar to be much cheaper than going into town (unfortunately we didn't discover this until near the end of our holiday) Overall we enjoyed our stay thoroughly and chose to ignore what lurked beneath. As long as you are aware 'you get what you pay for', this will be a good place for your stay. We could easily walk into town in 15/20 mins and very close to the sea which shares some beautiful views.

A pleasant surprise.

Posted 07-Sep-2013
Pros: It was cheap and cheerful but not nasty. I have stayed in establishments with higher star ratings and experienced musty rooms, uncomfortable beds etc
Cons: Not something that can be improved given the structure of the hotel but the inside rooms should be avoided if you're claustrophobic.
Location: Nicely located near the sea but a bit of a walk into town where most of the shops, restaurants etc are. Good if you want to get some walking in.
We were originally going to stay in a more upmarket hotel closer to downtown Reykjavic but the hotel double booked us. Fortunately Expedia found out before we actually flew out and were able to find us alternative accommodation at very short notice. I would not normally have chosen this hotel as it did seem rather basic "on paper" but as it turned out it was just fine - and almost half the price of our original choice. The room was tiny but it was fine for a three night stay. The complimentary buffet breakfast was adequate but you would be disappointed if you were hoping for hot food. I knew from reading others' reviews of the hotel that there were some rooms right in the middle of the hotel with no natural light i.e no windows and was concerned that with the short notice we might be assigned one of them. However we were given a room with a window and looking out to sea which was great.

Reasonable hotel

Posted 06-Sep-2013
Pros: Reasonable price for a hotel of this standard
Cons: Rooms are a bit small
Location: Location is a bit far from downtown, but certainly walkable.
Reasonable hotel, which is not bad for the price. Decent breakfast for Iceland. It is fair walk from downtown. Rooms are a bit small and very basic. The bed was very soft, too soft for my liking.

Cozy, but an excellent choice for us

Posted 28-Aug-2013
Pros: Staff, good value
Location: Public pool and city buses
I stayed at the Hotel Cabin with my 9 year old. Our room was quite tiny, but certainly adequate. The public areas are actually really nice with comfy seating and good art. The staff were really friendly and directed us to various bus options. We didn't have a car, but the city buses were extremely convenient and a great option. If you stay, one thing to consider is there is a large geothermal public pool less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel. We went several times and it was great. This is super great for kids with a large play pool and warm water slides. The food at the hotel was quite nice and we enjoyed our breakfasts a lot. I would stay there again.

For the out and abouters!

Posted 11-Aug-2013
Pros: The view to the bay
Cons: People arriving late and being noisy( not the hotels fault) perhaps there should be notices for inconsiderate visitors.
Location: Very convenient for the town if you are outgoing and prepared to walk. Taxis readily available All trips start from the door.
The upkeep could be better but for neat, clean, basic facilities absolutely fine. My room had clean linen, comfy bed and my own shower room and wc. The room was well cleaned each day and clean towels.( standard basic single room) There was an excellent self service buffet breakfast from 6.30 -10am I sprained my ankle and the staff were most helpful in providing ice!!! The best value I have had at this hotel was in the autumn. My one adverse criticism is that the smoking area should be at the side of the hotel. If you spend your holiday out and about every day this is a perfect destination. It's not for those who want to sit around.
