A group of 8 travelers, traveling Iceland, recently stayed at the 101 Hotel for 2 nights. We'd read some positive, mediocre and poor reviews. We should have listened. It was a disaster and a complete waste of money. If not for our good humor, this would have ruined our Iceland vacation. The service was poor. The staff was rude and unfriendly. Worst of all, the public areas and the rooms themselves were unclean, so much so, that we thought about switching hotels late at night. We did wonder the last time they cleaned our sheets. We are worlds travelers and this was among the worst hotels we've ever had the displeasure of visiting. DO NOT STAY HERE. DO NOT EAT HERE. You will not regret these choices. (Charlie)

Hotel's Favorite
Charming boutique hotel (part of Marriott collection)in the center of Reykjavik across from famous Hallgrimskirja. Loved our corner suite. Spacious with all the necessary amenities. Amazing bed. Great service. Bar (more like living room) is worth a visit for its charming warm design & fireplace. Great staff providing excellent service.

Cute hotel that was in a great location to explore Reykjavik. It is located next to the PM's residence as well, so security is good. The hotel staff are very friendly. The bathrooms are spacious, and there is no door between the bathroom and the sleeping area, which is modern. A few down sides: there are no outlet plugs near the beds and the wifi is weak and kept disconnecting from our phones. The hallways are very dimly lit, so going from the bright outdoors up the stairs to our rooms took a minute for our eyes to adjust. The spa area was closed to repair work. Upsides: free private parking at the back of the hotel and a cute lounge area with a fireplace.

Poorly designed rooms: Bathrooms have no doors nor separation from the bedroom. No storage space other than a small hanging rail and 3 wall mounted open cubes. No electricity sockets anywhere near the beds. Blinds not made to fit the windows with big gaps on either sides. In the winter this is not an issue but In summer it would definitely be. Poor soundproofing. However during covid there are curfews so the noise from the bars is not an issue. Amenities and service: Good housekeeping twice a day. Nice Aveda toiletries for free, however you have to pay for anything else ( shaving lots, toothbrush, female kit…). Decent hair dryer, bathrobe and slippers provided though. Friendly staff all over. Room were not inspected before check in. First room the heating was not working. Second room had 2 dead squashed mosquitos stuck on the blinds! When I asked for still water instead of sparkling complementary water someone suggested I drank the tap water. Only one offered per stay. Very limited selection at breakfast and restaurant food menu. Bar closed on Sundays and Mondays, again possibly due to covid. I never stay in 4 star hotels so I am not sure if this is the standard in 4 stars and can’t compare it like for like to anything else I’ve experienced. And to be honest had I known the edition had opened I would have gone there without hesitation. But this one was recommended by friends who had visited Iceland before edition had opened and it was probably the best option then. It is probably not a bad hotel if you’re not a fussy demanded guest I guess and it is quite pleasant if you look past the room issues. It even has a little gym and spa and some interesting art.

We stayed at the 101 Hotel a couple of nights, but we were allowed to check in super early, so it felt like three nights. Everybody at the hotel was so very welcoming, friendly, competent and professional. The housekeeper went out of her way to turn in my laundry that i had prepared, but forgot to take to the front desk. This place is in the best location. Job well done in these challenging times of hard-to-find personnel. If you stay here, you should absolutely go to the Apotek restaurant a couple of blocks away. That place was amazing - service, atmosphere, food presentation, and exceptional taste!

The 101 hotel is a space that represents the uniqueness of Iceland with effortless elegance, warm affection and exemplary hospitality. The 101 Team puts a stellar effort into welcoming every guest and making sure that they contribute to an unforgettable vacation. The rooms are designed with great care offering comfort and a great night’s sleep after a long day of exploring. Last but not least the hotel is situated right in the heart of Reykjavik where so many must- sees are within walking distance! We hope we will 101 again in the near future!

Pros: Great location and great lobby. Cons: The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. Surrounded by several bars that are open till 2am. Sounded like the party was in our room. After arriving in Iceland and staying here the first night we were exhausted, and because of the noise level we could not sleep till after 2:30am. If you sleep sound or don’t mind a 90’s dance off on your room you might be okay.

Hotel 101 is in a fantastic location that is close to all the major sights in Reykjavik. The staff were helpful and attentive, and the rooms had a funky, contemporary design that was very nice. I understand the previous comments on noise, since the rooms were a bit stuffy and you needed to open your window to let in fresh air. Overall, a great place to stay to see the city.

the service was wonderful , especially Lilja at the desk! outside noise was a bit much to sleep to with the Iceland bar across the street so ask for a quieter side. And we were not fans of the bathroom. Trying a little too hard to be modern and cool while sacrificing privacy.. overall a nice hotel with a great location
