OK, as friends, we chose to upgrade for a bit extra room with a bath. If you take less luggage, the smaller one would be great. Aside from sleeping, you are unlikely to want to spend much time in your room. A large lounge with bar area by the reception allows you to mix with other travellers, sitting in comfort...

We booked Hotel Cabin as part of a package with Icelandair and were satisfied with our choice. There were other options available but this was the cheapest on offer and it was more than adequate. The standard rooms are small with little spare space for two people and their luggage, but they are comfortable, warm and immaculately clean, including the...

We had a twin room for a very low price. Yes the room was basic and beds small. However, it was clean, warm, and there was a good breakfast buffet in the morning. We were very happy! Excellent value..

Yes, the reviews are pretty mixed on here but I really enjoyed the stay as a base to see amazing Iceland. The hotel is basic and bills itself as such. However, the room we had was comfortable if a little worn. The bathroom was adequate. As we were there around the time of 24 hour daylight we hardly spent any...

We had a long weekend here for my husband s seventieth birthday. Our room was large, very warm, with tv in English. Note however, some of the rooms are very tiny so check this out if its important to you. It was very clean, with a large bathroom/shower room. There was no kettle however, and I remembered to bring my...

We read the reviews and were really concerned about this hotel, expecting something like a hostel. What we got was a very compact room with en-suite and small wardrobe type clothes hanging area with shelves. It looked newly decorated and furnished and was spotless. The bedding was good quality cotton. To be honest we have stayed in a smaller room...

Spent 3 nights here. Plenty of parking and easy to find. Rooms are small, tired and basic but the bedding and towels were clean which is the main thing. Basin in the bathroom is so small with a shelf over it so don't knock yourself out when you clean your teeth! Staff were neither friendly nor rude.

I book our Iceland holiday as a deal with Broadway Travel which included the Northern Lights Tour. We had to upgrade our room as it was tiny and had a terrible view or a car work shop. Two people sharing (one person being 6ft 2!) would have problems and it was two single beds. In comparison to the room we...

Excellent budget hotel in a great location. Single rooms are small but they have everything you need, except hairdryers. Reception and gift shop staff are super helpful. Breakfast is varied and good for veggies.

Like other recent reviewers this was booked as part of an Icerlandair package, and like the others I agree that the rooms are very small but at least you have an en-suite (there are also no tea/coffee making facilities so bring your own kettle and tea/coffee or pay for an upgrade if you want a cuppa) and the buffet is...
