Hotel was good value although some of the rooms were very small. Breakfast was good and staff were helpful. The situation was lovely with views of the harbour and only a short trek to the town centre. Definitely recommend.

The check-in was smooth the evening I arrived June , 2022 until I went to the room, When I went to the room, which was smaller than what the photos lead you to believe, I always check the bedding and mattresses in hotels and found dried insects on the mattress and lots of sand in the tufting of the mattress. I went back to the front desk. The young man I spoke with assured me that the rooms were clean and the the management regularly fogged/sprayed the rooms monthly. I asked for a cleaner room and was told I could have an upgrade at an additional cost. I said I just wanted a cleaner room and the desk clerk reminded, no less than '3' times, that this was a 3* star hotel and that was what I was paying for. I said NO, 3 star means less amenities and space not more dirt and less cleanliness. I did stay at the Hotel Caban but felt uneasy in the room. Other desk clerks were helpful when verifying trips, transfers and pick-ups. The breakfast was more than sufficient in variety and abundance. The lobby and hallways were dated and looked well worn. Location was good and walking distance to everything but noisy

Hi JuniorH20, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. We are sorry to hear that you were not pleased with the customer service from our front desk staff. Regarding the cleanliness of your room, you are completely right, our three star rating does not mean the cleanliness of our rooms are any lesser. We put much effort to have our rooms very clean for our guests. Again we are very sorry, hopefully the rest of your stay with us was pleasant. We hope to see you again in the future and thank you for choosing us. Best regards, Hotel Cabin team

This is a basic hotel. The rooms were clean, but very small. Breakfast was pretty standard and unimaginative. It's a bit of a walk to the town centre. Thought I'd be fine staying in their cheaper rooms which had no windows to the outside, but the room was very warm and lacked fresh air. Felt a bit like I was sleeping in the broom cupboard.

Hi JodieKT, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, your feedback is very important to us. You are correct regarding the size of your room, our standard rooms are 10m2 in size. We are a budget hotel and we have a range of rooms that we offer our guests, some guests prefer a more spacious room and we do have superior rooms that are bigger and there is always a possibility for a room upgrade for a fee if there is availability. We are delighted to hear you were otherwise pleased with your stay. Thank you again for your feedback and for choosing us. Hopefully, we will see you again in the near future. Best regards, Hotel Cabin team

The hotel is well priced and has good location, but the service is horrible. The main receptionist provides you with condesending remarks about other guests, and gives you patronizing smiles and a shrug when you try to ask for help. The younger staff try to help you as best they can, but are talked down by the main reseptionist. There are plenty of other hotels to stay on in Reykjavik with far better service and lower prices.

Consummate traveler hotel. Accommodated our large group. Friendly people on staff and as guests. Very helpful and responsive. Most mornings the buffet breakfast is full early and people eat fast before they head out for the day. Expect charter buses to be waiting out front. Small seating area with bar fills up a little at the end of the day. Blackout curtains highly effective when the sun doesn’t set. About a ten minute walk from Laugavegur, maybe 15-20 from waterfront district, but it’s a nice walk along the bay.

Wonderful stay. Highly recommend opting for the superior room. Ours was on the 7th floor and had an amazing view and was very quiet. Staff was always helpful and friendly. It is a bit of a walk from center of town but we preferred that! All tours picked us up directly from the hotel. Very convenient

Friendly staff but just one night’s stay has left me covered in bites, bed bugs or fleas? Not looking forward to staying again sadly. Such a shame as the location is excellent to walk to the nearby swimming pool and city centre.
