Quick Trip to Iceland

Posted 06-Dec-2017
The hotel met my expectations. The proximity to downtown was good.

Good view of the hill and water beneath

Posted 28-Nov-2017
Room is very small. If your purpose is to sleep and have a bathroom ONLY, this is fine. The shower is tiny though. If you are over 150 lbs, it would be a little too tight. You would easily hit parts of your body or extremities against the walls of the shower. The TV? Wow, it's a 13 in tube TV & very limited channel to watch - only 1 channel is clear. No coffee maker in the room, you can rent one, but no use because there's no place to put it. So don't bother. You can loan a hair dryer for 2k ISK, it will be returned when you return the hair dryer. If you eat like a little bit more than a bird, the breakfast buffet is ok.

Perfect hotel for a low cost break in Iceland

Posted 22-Nov-2017
Pros: Location, staff, view!
Cons: Tea and coffee in the room would be a real bonus (it would be nice to be able to warm up in your room after a day sightseeing).
Location: Right on the sea front, great view of mountains and lovely walk along the front into the centre of town, passing most of the main sights on the way!
Cabin hotel is REALLY basic. The rooms are very small and there's no added extras (no tea/coffee in the room etc) However, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low cost break in Iceland. The venue is perfect, and our view from our room was absolutely beautiful. All coach trips pick up and drop off here. Beautiful walk along the seafront into town and restaurants in walking distance too.

Dear carolyn, Thank you for your review and for your stay. We are sorry to hear that Hotel Cabin was not what you expected. We always try our best to offer good service and facilities. We would like to emphasize that our standard rooms are indeed compact but fully equipped. Each room is about 10 m2 with two single beds.You do get smaller rooms but you do also pay budget price. We have the option of booking a superior room with or without a view if you prefer larger rooms. We would also like to mention that the bus stops just outside our hotel. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Iceland. Kind regards, Hótel Cabin team

Excelente costbenefit

Posted 13-Oct-2017
The only thing that must be upgraded is The "glass wall" from the shower space/tube in the bathroom. It does not container the water from splashing in the bathroom floor

Noisy budget hotel

Posted 07-Oct-2017
Expected the small room so no surprise there. Didn't expect the noise. Doors slamming, gurgling water sounds I'm the pipes, people talking in nearby rooms. The hotel should invest in better doors and put insulation in the walls.

Decent hotel for price

Posted 05-Sep-2017
Only negatives are some rooms have no windows which means no natural light and can feel depressing. The staff also talk really loud in the mornings while making up rooms.

Dear lina, Thank you for your feedback and for your stay. Unfortunately we have some rooms with a window facing the hallway. They are our cheapest option. Hotel Cabin is a budget hotel with budget prices but we do offer the possibility to upgrade to a Superior room. We are sorry for the inconvenience about the noise from the staff members. We will use your review on our next staff meeting and do our best to improve. Hope we will see you again back in Iceland one day. Kind regards,

Great staff, meals were convenient. Room was small

Posted 24-Aug-2017
Pros: The staff and meeting the other quests during meals.
Cons: Larger rooms.
Location: Hotel is in a office complex area with small cafes' nearby. Wharf is directly down the street but long walk. Lots of buses.
We stayed for four days to get a taste of Iceland via tours. We took three tours in three days with pick up and drop off at the Hotel. We shared most meals in the Hotel Dining Room and met several other travelers from all over the world. It was a very good trip but expensive. Much more than the U.S. or Germany.

Dear Roger, Thank you for your review and for your stay. We are delighted to know that you liked the effort from our staff and meeting the other guests during meals. We would like to mention that the standard rooms are our most inexpensive option and are, as the name implies, simple but comfortable. If you prefer a larger room, we particularly recommend our superior room. They are larger and have more amenities than the standard rooms. The rooms are approximately 18m2 and have a private bathroom with bathtub. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the near future. Kind regards, Hotel Cabin team
