There is no mention no lift in this hotel and they didn't show any help for 2 girls of us to move the luggages from ground floor to 3rd floor. Besides, all the towels are so old and water leaking has problems. Very smelly of the toilets. The price is not justified to such lower level of hotel service and...

I feel horrible about writing such a mean review, as the man who checked us in was lovely. I feel like we got the worst room in the place. We booked a double room via Expedia, it was a twin room. Hardly the best start. The room was literally so tiny, there were no wardrobes so we had to live...

We booked our trip to Iceland two days before arriving at the Adam Hotel. Our flight came in early so we were there at 0730, and thank goodness or else we would not have seen what we saw. At 0730 the bus dropped us off at the Adam Hotel, or just under the hotel sign. So we get there and...

The location was perfect, the room was clean and the staff were friendly. The place was a little dated but nothing to worry about. The bed was very small for two - not a standard double and there was no lift. Both points were fine for us but might not be ideal for others. There was a fridge, sink and...

I arrived with a backpack and was immediately yelled at by the a staff member ( the owner i think) for blocking his way. I was not. Then I was told the room would be ready somtime after 2 o'clock, while the booking says check in is at 2. When I pointed this out, I was abruptly told that 4...

We had 3 nights in this hotel. The positive things are that it is centrally located close to the Cathedral. It has shops and cafes close by. The manager and staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. It was warm. The negatives are that the room is about 8x12 or smaller and in that space there are 2 narrow...

I travel a lot, this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. Please don't stay here, even if you are desperate and can't find anything below 200£ in Reykjavik, stay outside town or change plans. You will be so miserable staying here. We had booked for 3 nights but I bought a new flight ticket and...

The "hotel" AdaM (it's a guesthouse, barely) is a smelly, illkept dump. The poor staff are not to blame, the one star goes out to them. The building is all wrong, some of the double rooms would barely fit one single person. We're talking boat cabin-size here. And there isn't ANY ventilation, let alone airconditioning. On the second night the...
