Hotel | Simple, good value hotel with small rooms. This hotel is a fifteen minute walk from the centre. The hotel is beautifully situated in the quiet Borgartún area with views over the adjacent bay.

Basic hotel in a quiet location with small standard rooms
The philosophy behind Hotel Cabin is to offer good accommodation for travellers who prefer to spend their money on things other than hotels when travelling. You will find a bar, longue area and a restaurant. A nice touch is that the hotel prepares packed lunches for groups that are going to be out all day. For those who prefer to come back to the hotel for lunch, there is the restaurant with a salad bar.

Guests at the hotel can make the most of the location and visit Laugardalur – a large, outdoor recreation area that is great to stroll around in. This area is also home to the largest geothermal pool in the city, Laugar Spa, which is great for a dip all year round, as well as Reykjavik Zoo, where you can visit a number of native animal species, and to a botanical garden that’s full of impressive arctic plants. Finally, the largest sports arena in the country is also nearby, which boasts a number of different sporting spaces, such as a running track and an outdoor ice hockey rink.

The centre is 1.3 kilometres away. Impressive landmarks such as the Hallgrímskirkja Church and Perlan Museum are only a little bit farther afield. It is easy to get to and from the hotel via Route 41 and the hotel offers free parking.

”Personalen i receptionen skulle behöva gå en kurs i kundkontakt. Dom skulle behöva bli bättre på att låta trevliga mot gäster. Det var en av dom som gjorde det men den vi fick hon skulle behöva gå den kursen. Över lag så var allt annat bra på hotellet rummet var kanon. ”

”Hade bokat ett rum på 10m2. Det stod klart o tydligt att rummen var små men 10m2 är absolut i minsta laget för två vuxna. ”
