“Great Property, Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

My partner and I spent three nights at Hotel 101. It was a surprise 50th birthday present for me. My partner did all the booking and I was at the mercy of the itinerary and her judgment. It was perfect. We had a fantastic room - Rm 401 and we were able have an early check-in which helped immensely with our early flight time. We recognized this cannot always be accommodated but the staff at Hotel 101 were able to do this and it made the start of our trip a great one. We loved the clean lines, the design and style of the hotel. It was small and yet it had a great vibe with the lounge and restaurant filling up in the evening. It was very, very convenient and centrally located so we had access to a lot of interesting spots on foot. We heard some street noise one evening (Saturday I think) but it wasn't too disturbing and we expected it as Reykjavik is a fun city. If you wish to be in the heart of it all, you have to expect some night revellers and celebrating. The small spa next to the fitness room was very nice, with steam closets and a hot tub.

A warm welcome upon checking in and very helpful staff throughout our stay. Fabulous breakfast served in our room by pleasant staff. Great bar with fab decor. Friendly atmosphere. Fantastic location. My daughters room faced the harbour which was lovely but my superior room faced the back of the building - and wasnt really worth the additional cost. So no need to upgrade. Fantastic mini bar with everything from socks and tights to Blue Lagoon toilietries. Lots of good quality towels and bedding. My only negative was the mattress - which was surprisingly hard by Icelandic standards. Exceptionally clean throughout. Would definately go back.

Room Tip: ask for room facing the harbour. no need to upgrade

My wife and I were fortunate to spend five nights in this delightful and top flight hotel. The decor is modern( some may say cold) but we found it cozy from the fireplace in the lounge to the sauna we frequented each evening before going to sleep. Our room was highly functional, roomy and most comfortable. Slept like a rock. Breakfast offered a wide choice ( try the Icelandic yogart thick and rich) and the room was nice to help start the day. The secret STAR of the hotel is Katrin she was amazing. She went far above the call of duty starting with answering numerous phone calls I placed prior to the trip. She answered all of my questions giving great recommendations from tours, to shops and restaurants! All of the staff were extremely helpful but she was amazing. She made numerous arrangements for us and they were all either great fun or delicious. Hotel has a great central location within a easy walk to all the sights. Other staff throughout the day and evening all couldnt do enought for us. Hotel was most enjoyable and we loved after experiencing a grand day out to be able to come home and enjoy our surroundings. You do get what you pay for and at the 101 you receive even more. it is classy, cool, comfortable with great staff. I would recommend it to family and friends. MORE PEOPLE FROM THE USA SHOULD VISIT ICELAND!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our upper floor room ( either 4th or 5th) with a view of the concert hall and the harbour...

We visited for my wife's 50th birthday. What a memorable visit. The country and the hotel were fantastic and so very friendly.

The hotel was immaculately clean and very welcoming with a lovely open fire in the foyer and lovely atmosphere. The atmosphere was vibrant during the evening with a very nice class of clientele using the hotel.

Our room was lovely, we were really very grateful that the staff had managed to provide a room on the fourth floor with the most beautiful view overlooking the old harbour.

The staff was so helpful, friendly and had a very ‘can-do’ attitude. We dealt in the main with two persons on the Front Desk (both before and during our stay) - Katrin and JP. They were fantastic and both went the extra mile in making our stay seamless and making Sarah's birthday so memorable.

The ladies serving breakfast were also extremely helpful, very much interested in our stay and our daily activities (Sorry - I don’t have their names but they will know who they are). They even took time helping Sarah learn her Icelandic language pleasantries – Takk!

Would certainly love to go back to Reykjavik and if we do, we'll definately stay at Hotel 101.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms on front side have a lovely view of old harbour

Hotel 101 not impressive at all - although the location is not bad, the hotel lacks character. The reception was surprisingly unhelpful and unfriendly. The rooms are not terrible, but our mini bar fridge didn't cool at all. The hotel is essentially too expensive for what you get.

I have just returned from the ultra cool 101 Hotel last week and, as always, I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

From the initial warm and friendly welcome at the front desk, to the quality of service and cleanliness of the suite (something I'm particularly fussy about), it was a great stay from start to finish. The staff were happy to go out of their way to ensure I had a great time, with no request too much trouble for them.

I especially like the comfort and layout of the rooms, where we had a particularly luxurious bed where I had a good, relaxing night's sleep.

I love my food and their restaurant doesn't disappoint. The service is what you'd expect of such a highly rated hotel and it's always lively, a good place to go people watching. (We saw Roger Moore last time we were there but not on this occasion unfortunately)

Overall the hotel is luxurious without being pretentious, ultra modern and very well located to see this great city.

Definitely good value and should I ever return to Reykjavik, this is the only place I'll consider staying.
