Having a commanding presence in the oldest postal code of Reykjavík, from which the hotel took it's numerical name, 101 Hotel neighbors the city's administrative buildings and the Icelandic Opera House. Though the exterior will reflect the strength and character of its Icelandic history, the 38 rooms and suites are of refined elegance, with a stylish sense of comfort pervading throughout the entire building.
An unapologetic Nordic coolness pervades the atmosphere of the 101 Hotel, Iceland's first entry into the league of boutique hotels. Owner and designer Ingibjörg S. Pálmadóttir has created a hot spot out of the 1930s office building that was once home to the Icelandic Social Democratic Party.
Stepping into the guest rooms at least your feet are gently warmed by heated oak floors. Refreshing white Italian bed linen by Quagliotti contrasts with both matte and glossy black furnishings, accentuated by Artemide lamps. Opting for the slightly rustic touch, the open plan design leads straight into the bathroom, where a freestanding bathtub is firmly grounded by metal claw-feet and can be filled to the brim with geothermal water.Right in the heart of Reykjavik's city centre, this little gem strengthens its connection to the art scene by being just next door to the Icelandic Opera House and nearby Pálmadóttir's 101 Gallery.
