Stayed here for 4 nights in the superior room with a view . On reflection I should have just taken the superior room as the window was too dirty to be able to enjoy the view.
Loved the porridge at breakfast time. Plenty to choose from die breakfast and a great salad bar in the e

Hi simply126, Thank you for your review. First we want to apologize for the hairs on your bedding lines and on your towel. This is obviously something we need to fix and we will do that. Your room tip regarding the standard rooms is correct, our standard rooms are small or about 10m2. Cabin is a budget hotel with budget prices but we do offer the possibility to upgrade. Breakfast is always included in the prices and being a budget hotel we might not have quite as much selection. With that being said, we try our best to offer something for every one and we also offer early breakfast for those leaving after 03 am. We do hope to see you in Iceland again and thank you for your stay. Kind regards, Hotel Cabin team

I spent 4 nights at this hotel with a group of travellers and on arrival was provided with a tiny very basic single room probably more suitable for a 5 year old without a cat to swing! Having discovered there was a possibility to upgrade I paid the required £80 and was presented

Dear Fm M, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us and for choosing Cabin. We were pleased to learn that you had an overall great stay with us. You are right :) our standard rooms are indeed small, they are about 10m2 and we are proud to be able to offer standard rooms for a low price in Reykjavík. However, we are glad you liked the upgrade :) Our goal is to ensure that every guest receives excellent service and we strive to personally address any concerns that may inhibit an outstanding experience. We appreciate your comments and please note that all reviews are taken seriously, and are used to train our staff and improve the overall guest experience. We appreciate the recommendation and we hope to have the opportunity to welcoming you back soon! Kind regards, Hotel Cabin team

This hotel offered us everything we wanted; a low cost, a clean hotel room with wifi, a delightful breakfast.a short walk to the sea and amenities. The staff were all extremely accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I have Coeliac disease and so can’t eat wheat, barley or rye. I’m wondering if the breakfast available offers gluten free options? Similarly, if we were to have the salad bar for lunch/dinner would this include gluten free options? Thank you in advance
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.

Hi . How far is it from the airport ?
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.
