Busy Hotel quite a way from the centre of town

Posted 01-Aug-2016
Pros: Rooms were clean. There was a bar. Wifi was reliable and free.
Cons: Staff competency could be improved. Can't do much to improve rooms that are too small and have no windows. More choices in buffet dinner.
Location: Long walk or bus ride from the city centre. No activities nearby that I was aware of.
My tour of Iceland began at Hotel Cabin so I booked an extra night before the tour began. I booked a windowless room - because it was cheaper, but still not cheap. I only arrived in the evening and checked out the next morning so I really only spent time in the room to sleep. The bed was comfortable but the room was very small. The bathroom sink was a very small 'half' sink and had a broad glass shelf above it which made it almost impossible to use. You had to get your head under the glass shelf! The next night I was in the deluxe section of the hotel with my tour and the room was much bigger there and had a window and a full size sink. The location of the hotel was quite a long walk (though it was a pleasant walk) or a bus ride from the centre of Reykjavik and there were not many eating places close by. The hotel buffet dinner was very plain and over priced. Breakfast was adequate. No fresh juice, just cordial. The hotel is used by many tour groups and school groups and the dining room was really busy and noisy. The staff were a mixed bunch, some surly, some helpful. They struggled to cope with large numbers of tour people and school groups checking in and out. They could not find my first night's booking and tried to tell me I had booked for the same night twice - I hadn't and I had a receipt to show them so then they got a staff member who knew the system and she was pleasant and able to find it.

Tiny and badly maintained

Posted 29-Jul-2016
The room had no space whatsoever. You can't even put your luggage down. The door had been cut wrong and didn't fit the doorframe so there was a gap and you could see out on the hallway through it not to mention the noise that came with having an open door! The doorframe in the bathroom was rotten and there were cracks in the tiles. The staff could not care less.

bus stop close and City Pool

Posted 20-Jul-2016
Pros: Breakfast, Bar, Staff
Cons: Check out procedures
Location: City Bus Stop close, Laugardalslaug 2 blocks away, Zoo close, harbor walk 2 blocks
Cabin Hotel was fine. Provided the basics. Nice friendly atmosphere. Rooms small and Spartan. We were not going to just stay in our room so it was perfect for us. It is close to City Bus stop and a nice big City Pool complex are both in easy walking distance. Close to shore-harbor walk. Not enough room for more than 2 people in our room so extra bed out of question. Price was very good.

Pros: propreté.
Cons: un store aux fenêtres pour éviter d'être réveillé par la lumière du jour.
Location: Un peu excentré.
Un peu excentré mais arrêt de bus devant l'hôtel et jolie promenade au bord de l'eau pour rejoindre le centre; Buffet petit déjeuner varié.

Die Zimmer ohne Tageslicht sind extrem klein. Das angebotene Abendessen als Buffet war gut und günstig.

Very near waterfront path

Posted 23-May-2016
The standard room we had was a bit cramped typical of European size rooms. To enjoy it you need to upgrade to a queen or better.

Nie polecam!

Posted 17-May-2016 on Hotels
Nie polecam i odradzam. Pokoje to koszmar. Tez bez okna pozostawiam bez komentarza. Te z oknem równie klaustrofobiczne (ciężko się obrócić z plecakiem). Dość duży i nieprzyjemny hotel. Nie dobre śniadanie. Słaby stosunek ceny do jakości.

Great place!

The hotel clerk was really excellent. We messed up on our transports and reservation and she straightened it all out. Also they had a breakfast at 3:00 am for early risers! She also refused to take a tip. Food was great.
