Unless you will be happy at these prices for the location alone, I suggest you look elsewhere. Under-lighted hallways and hip music alone cannot make a good hotel.

Front desk help is nonexistent. Most of the time, you have to call out to get someone to help you. And I underscore the comments of the previous reviewer about the attractive female front desk staffer who is never there and seems more interested in preening than being helpful. There's no concierge and other front desk staff weren't all that knowledgeable about the basics in the city.

Food is good, service is terrible and slow. Even the buffet breakfast struggles because it was understaffed.

And for a hotel aiming so high, the mattress was not what you would expect.

Disappointed and would not recommend 101 Hotel.

This is not the best hotel I ever stayed in - but it was a very good choice for a short stay of 2 nights in Reykjavik. It is not a five star, so no one rushes out to help with your luggage, and the service at breakfast is basic. It is within the context of this particular city and the nature of this trip that my rating is 5 rather than 4.

However - here are some serious pros:
It is in an excellent location - easy to get to all sites and easy for getting in and out of town. Not that this is an issue, this is a very small city.
It is beautifully designed, very tasteful.
The room was spacious enough, light and bright, bed and beddings comfortable.
Front desk staff super-helpful and nice - they gave us excellent restaurants advice, booked us on a tour we wanted, and were extremely helpful when we needed some technical help.
Plenty of magazines on the shelf in the relaxed lobby - a nice touch.

OK:
Breakfast buffet OK, has enough for most people to eat, coffee OK too, mostly self service (decent but not brilliant)

Cons:
Not enough cupboard space
Toilet arrangement not the best (there is a glass door, but the bathroom is semi open space)
Shades/block screen on windows not entirely perfect (an issue in summer when it is light all night). Pack eyeshades!
A bit of street noise (maybe only our room/that side - we had 207) - but, be warned, make sure there is no event taking place in the public area around the Harpa (concert hall), as in summer they do have them weekly, we were told, and they are incredibly loud. I assume it affect most hotels, though. So if there is something going on I'd advise booking as far from it as possible.

Room Tip: Ask not to face the street if possible (not sure it is) - from noise point of view.

The 101 Hotel is smack in the middle of downtown Reykjavik one block off of the main walk street. There are a variety of restaurants and pubs in the local area as well as the headquarters for bus tours around the island. The hotel is modern but the interior is painted black and the hallways leading to the rooms are dark. Parking is available close by. The buffet breakfast and dinner were good but pricey. The staff were helpful and professional. A bar is located across the street from the entrance so be aware that night time revelers go on until early into the morning and are loud if they have parked just outside a side room. The windows fog up when showering and opening a window may let in flying insects and allow the street noise to enter the room. We were there two nights and both nights there was substantial noise outside our window. With the window closed there is minimal noise but then the room remains hot. The room was clean and the closet space sparse. The hotel is expensive and breakfast and dinner is not included in the price. Wifi worked very well.

Room Tip: Request a room off of the street for reduced noise.

One of the best features of this hotel is it's central downtown location. It's only a block away from the main shopping street with lots of restaurants. Also, if you're interested in taking any organized tours, the Grayline office is down the block. The room was fairly large with a comfortable bed and plenty of storage. The bathroom setup is a bit odd. The large shower is part of the bedroom and is fully visible as the walls are clear glass. However, the shower works very well. The room is well stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries and is clean. The hotel restaurant serves an excellent buffet breakfast. We also had dinner there one night and it was also quite tasty. However, the menu is fairly limited. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only negatives I can list is that if you open the windows for cool air it is quite noisy on the street below since there are lots of bars in the area. Also, the hallways are quite dark so it is difficult to see. Lastly, it's rather expensive compared to other hotels n the neighborhood. Although the hotel is a bit quirky in its decor, we would consider staying here again because of its superb location.

I went to Reykjavik on a lads weekend so its remarkable that I can remember the staff being so unhelpful, but I have a clear memory of a particularly attractive but rude receptionist and a barman who really though he was very cool, and wasn't.

We chose the 101 because its a bit funky and in the very best location for a middle aged version of a pub crawl. I will probably stay again at the hotel because there is not a lot of choice but I will not have high expectations of the over sparse rooms or the hospitality.

By the way, I have the impression that half the population drink themselves into the ground on a Friday night and the other half on Sunday. It's a messy and noisy town at the weekend, relatively good natured, that's relative to their pillaging heritage. Be prepared for minor carnage and noise, the hotel is at ground zero.

Stayed: May 2014, traveled with friends
