Hotel Cabin is a modern hotel designed for the modern traveler and equipped with all the facilities that a modern traveler needs. Our main policy has always been, to offer travelers visiting Reykjavík comfortable and economic accommodation right in the heart of the city. The Standard rooms are the cheapest accommodation we have to offer and as the name implies they are very basic but comfortable. The Superior rooms are bigger and come with a bathtub with a shower and refrigerator. The Superior rooms with a view are all on the hotel´s 7th floor and offer a magnificent view of the city or the ocean. They come with a free wireless internet, a refrigerator, a tea- and coffee maker and a hairdryer. The hotel is excellently located within a walking distance from the city center as well as the Laugardalur area.

We stayed at the Hotel Cabin for three nights in February for some sight-seeing. We had three standard rooms (one per person). They are small but for one person completely enough with two beds (one for me one to keep the suitcase on) and a small bathroom. It was super-clean,

Very basic hotel, it was warm and clean, rooms very small. Breakfast consisted of cereal, toast, ham, cheese, tomatoes & cucumber. There was a salad bar available from 11am until 9pm! Which seemed an odd thing to serve in such cold weather! The hotel was very busy and the last

We had a fantastic time in Reykjavik, the hotel staff were very helpful, told us the local vegetarian restaurants and things we might be interested in. The room was very small, but if all you want is somewhere to lay your head at night then it does the job

We were given a standard twin room when one of our party was taken ill and we went from a travelling trio to a duo. The room was very ‘cosy’ with little wardrobe space (most clothes remained in suitcase stored under the bed) but to give the Cabin it’s due, the size of the rooms

I don't think they have gluten free products. I am gluten intolerant too and crazy as this sounds, I carry gluten free bread and products when I travel. I ask my doc for a note so Im safe and it has worked for me as I don't want to end up sick on a trip. At this hotel the serving staff don't know much as most of the soups come from reconstituted ingredients and I couldn't read the labels which the kitchen staff gave me as it was in Icelandic. I have an egg allergy so its super important for me to find a grocery store close by to my hotel and shop for my own meals. Hope this helps you. But email the hotel and see if they can reply to you. This is just my observation.

It’s just outside the centre of Reykjavik so it’s the first drop off if you go via bus/shuttle. Reykjavik is 40-45mins from the airport.

"Ask for a sea view. Although near a main road, it wasn’t noisy and hardly any traffic during the night."
"For a couple or family, upgrade and book a Superior room"
"Booke superior room or room with outside window standard rooms are tiny"
"Negotiate for an upgrade to a superior room."
