Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Sitting in the centre of Reykjavik’s thriving nightlife district, this boutique hotel keeps in line with its trendy surroundings. A blend of cool greys, whites and blacks, the décor could be classed as minimalist were it not for the striking artworks adorning the walls and quirky sculptures dotted throughout. In fact, the hotel even has its own art gallery and holds frequent temporary exhibitions to showcase local artists.
When you’ve had your fill of the art, retreat to the swish dining hall or sleek bedrooms. You’re in a great part of the city here too, with a bucket load of bars and restaurants to while away an evening in.
Whether it’s an Icelandic classic or a simple burger you’re after, the Kitchen & Wine restaurant serves up some delicious fare in a contemporary setting. There is also a great drinks menu, including some great wines, cocktails and beers, if you fancy an evening tipple.
There are 38 rooms at 101 Hotel, all of which have been designed with the guest’s comfort in mind. Décor is modern and slick, with a monochrome colour palette, comfy beds and smart bathrooms. If it’s a room with a view you’re after you may wish to upgrade - some of the suites offer incredible views over Mount Esja and the bay.
There is a spa with all the trimmings at the hotel; from pampering massage treatments to the bubbling hot tub, it’d be a tricky feat to leave unrelaxed. If you’re looking to keep fit during your time in Reykjavik, there is also a gym to make use of.
