“Bad room and unfriendly owners/managers!”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

We had to stay here one night because the Grettisgata Apartments did not honor our reservations. The room had 2 twin beds that were uncomfortable. The room was very small with cheap furnishings. It had a sink with a few dishes and utensils to use. We really didn't use anything because we wanted to get out of there as fast as we could. We also had to share a bathroom. It was so small and the opening to the shower was barely large enough to get through. The room was also very noisy. The breakfast provided was expensive and was not adequate. The owners/managers (husband and wife?) were very unfriendly. I had actually looked at this place to stay when I was planning the trip and saw the terrible reviews and decided against it. Now, I know for sure this a place I would never recommend.

Hello,
we would like to thank you very much for your stay!
You have booked SHARED facility accommodation..thats why price and standard is lower, than if you would pay for PRIVATE accommodation.
We will be happy to host you again sometime in future in our PRIVATE accommodation, where each room is equipped with a private bathroom, television, refrigerator and a basic kitchen necessary to make your own breakfast. All rooms have free WiFi Internet connection. Downstairs we have a grocery shop that's open til late and also lobby/coffee shop, where you can enjoy a cup of your favorite brew, to have a breakfast, or just browse the internet on our free WiFi hot spot.
We can provide you also with car rental service and arrange the airport transportation for you.
Thank you very much !!

I stayed at the Adam Hotel when in transit. It was fine - perfectly located next to the Church - so easy to find you way to. I made tea and the water was fine. I had a shower with lots of hot water. It was noisy at night - being a Friday in a busy areabut this quietened down early n the morning. Good wifi. Loki cafe on the corner. I found it clean and the staff member who let me in was fine. It's a good cheap base.

The worst Place I have stayed at. Really dirty and bad beds, hardest ever slept on. The toilet floor nerver got dry if you used the shower, because of the bad ventilation and wrong constructed bathroom floor. The management was really inpolite and unhelpful.

This was not the hotel we were supposed to stay but there was some mess-up with our reservation in our hotel so we ended up staying in AdaM the first night. Not very good start for our first visit in Reykjavík as the room was very ascetic and had no private facilities.

I recommend this "hotel" to no one.

Only good thing was the location - Hallgrimskirkja was very near.

Best I can say is mediocre!
Lousy rooms, and just as bad facilities. Topped off by a proprietor who only smiles when he has your payment details.
Not even that cheap.....
Don't ruin your trip to such a beautiful island!
Saving grace is location but if you have good legs..... use them and stay elsewhere!

Everything was terrible in this hotel: unpleasant and rude owner, dirty room and bathroom, dirty sheets covered in stains of blood, ugly building... My wife cried the whole afternoon after arriving there as the owner refused to give us back our money, and we even considered to find another hotel, but everything was full as it was peak-season.

If you travel only once in Reykjavik, pay a bit more and get a better room for your stay! Such an bad hotel can really ruin your stay in Island. Turism board of Island should have a look on this kind of places.
