We were delayed returning home by an airline strike, and decided to give the Hotel Cabin a try (we'd been staying at an airbnb property.) We got the economy room, and it was perfectly fine; neat as a pin and had everything we needed for a night's stay. I like the location, because it is quiet and near the swimming complex at Laugardalslaug (which should not be missed), while still near the city center. It's just a block to the harbor walk, too, which is quite pleasant.
The included breakfast buffet was very good; lots of choices and all fresh. It was a bit of a zoo, though, in terms of the number of people, and because, I think, Icelandic food prices being sky high, people staying at a "budget" hotel will want to make a full meal out of breakfast!
One downside, no free wifi in the cheaper rooms.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
