Beautiful hotel in the heart of downtown Reykjavik. Close walk to the bay and many attractions. The staff was friendly and helpful. Also, the restaurant Kastrup around the corner was great. And the bar appeared to be a destination for drinks.

Our room #405 overlooked the Harpa Concert Hall (beautiful modern glass building with the harbor and the mountains behind it), the Culture House, a city park, was right next to Bus Stop #6 for Flybus (airport shuttle) and tour/ excursion pick-up's, and was within a 10-15 minute walk to many attractions, restaurants and shopping. Location amazing! No special perks as others have mentioned even though part of the Marriott system. Was not extraordinarily expensive given that many hotels are very very expensive in Reykjavik. Pros: Lobby and bar beautiful. Staff courteous, friendly and efficient. Very clean, comfortable beds. Liked the modern aesthetic of the room. Lots of light through the windows, but with well fitted black out shades (not needed as much for us given December). Great desk with multiple outlets overlooking the view. We went to a bar across the street for dinner, Islenski Barinn - reasonably priced, very lively (long line out the door, though we got there at a lucky moment and got right in), very friendly and welcoming, and the food was terrific! Cons: No outlets next to either side of the bed, really unacceptable! No teapot or coffee pot, major bummer in the mornings. Halls are very dimly lit. The bathroom and bedroom are wide open to each other, that's not so appealing, though the glass enclosure around the toilet was fine. A bit more storage/ bigger closet would have been appreciated. We were there off season so the hotel was sparsely occupied and no loud noise from neighboring restaurants/ bars, but I could see this as a potential problem during holidays/ in high season.

Terrible avoid this hotel! A lack of staff and poor service from those that are there. I wrote a great review of this hotel in 2015 this was one of the best hotels in Iceland. Now I suggest you never go here, it’s sadly fallen no help with bags, no cooked food at the hotel, rude staff, making help the guests last of their priorities, poorly trained staff and even forgot our event was happening a total joke from start to finish. Management need to be fired and this can come back to being a great hotel

Overall I was impressed with the hotel, the staff, breakfast, the design and the location was super,, however; there was no sound proofing at all. Our room faced the street and at night we could hear people talking and yelling after leaving a bar across the street. The hotel shares a wall with a nightclub that had really loud music and our room was right next to it. It started about 11 or 12 midnight. We could not sleep. We could feel vibrations from the music. So for most of our visit we were not well rested. I don’t like to write bad reviews but had I known this before I would not have stayed there.

We stayed at the 101 Hotel on both ends of our 7 night Tour of Iceland. The 101 is nicer than any of the hotels encountered along the Rim Road (we stayed in 6 different hotels). Location is great. Within walking distance of the main town area - nice restaurants and shops. We also saw the Northern lights one night by walking near the water around the Sun Explorer statue. As mentioned in other reviews, the hotel is affiliated with Marriott. So, you get points but Elites don’t get upgrades or free breakfast. There are wonderful bakeries nearby. On our arrival for the 2nd night we were unexpectedly upgraded to a corner King room. Room 407. (Any room ending in “07” would be the same). It was huge with great views of the city. We were super fortunate. Hotel is pricey but so is Iceland. Staff were very nice to us and we enjoyed our stay. Would love to return.

Beautifully designed rooms and a fantastic location and view (if you get the bay side rooms). Food options were expensive so suggest going to the town for alternatives. Walking distance to major Reykjavik attractions. Note as a Marriott platinum, you do not get free breakfast per the Marriott manual.

Two couples and my husband and I visited this Hotel (and various others around the Ring Road). All other experiences were quite good and as we had hoped, but this Hotel is a MUST AVOID. The rooms were dirty. The maid service was about on part with a 7 year old. The staff couldn't have been less willing to help. We don't consider our group as having unusually high standards, but this place was basically a dump with pricing like a castle. Handles were missing; the shower took at least 10 minutes to arrive at a tolerable temperature; the TV, Cel and internet service were spotty, at best (and that's generous). Again, there are amazing choices in this City. Avoid the 101 Hotel like the plague.

Visited the hotel in July with my husband and highly recommend it, we stayed in a Double Deluxe room. The design is beautiful and the staff was very helpful, providing us with good tips and guidance what to do in Reykjavik. If you arrive early I would recommend requesting an early check-in because the check-in starts at 15:00, I sent an e-mail few days before my arrival and they gave me access to my room at noon. We liked the location, located next to the main street Laigarvegur. They also have a spa and a gym that is free of charge.

TL;DR: Spend your hard-earned money somewhere else. This hotel was definitively disappointing. I traveled to Reykjavik for business and while we usually stay at various hotels in the city, during this trip with summer travel season in full swing the only hotels we could find were the higher priced ones. As my colleagues and I are all Marriott elites, we opted to stay at the 101 Hotel - Design Hotel. Pretty much immediately after check in I regretted this decision. I should note that all of my opinions on the stay are in the harsh light of a 62,000 ISK ($470/€425) a night. First, there are no Marriott elite benefits at Design Hotels - let’s get that out of the way. I knew this going into it, that there would be no breakfast or late check outs, etc., but I wasn’t exactly prepared for the cold welcome we received nor the seemingly annoyed service throughout our stay. The staff were fine, but it really did seem like either they didn’t want to be there or they didn’t want *you* to be there. To the uninitiated this might have been seen as a standard Nordic reception, but in my various trips to Iceland I’ve only encountered pretty friendly hospitality staff. Icelanders are some of the most welcoming people I've met in my travels, so this was coldness was exceptional. The room was, again, fine. The hotel went to pains to explain how it was the height of Scandinavian and Nordic design, but frankly it was just a lot of black and white. And it was showing its age - the fixtures looked a bit worn and cheap, there were loads of scuff marks on the walls, and the bedside tables - two “cool” clear plastic designs, were scratched and marked up, so they appeared cheap. The room had a completely mirrored bathroom, which was entirely open to the rest of the room. Frankly, it would’ve been uncomfortable if I had even had my significant other staying with me - the room became incredibly hot and humid when you took a shower because there was no ventilation and no separation from the shower as well. The toilet was in it’s own cubicle, but closed off with a thin glass door - not exactly private. There are only two things that I am adamant about, truly, when it comes to hotels: coffee or tea options in the room for when I wake up, and plugs next to the bed. This hotel had neither. The room service began at 7am, but if you wanted coffee before that - say, if you were rising early for a long trek outside of Reykjavik - you were out of luck. You had the option of “renting” a coffee maker for 1500 ISK, in which you would receive a very specific amount of two coffee pods per night of your stay, no more. The plugs were particularly galling: the room, which was declared to be high design and the apex of luxury, lacked any sort of bedside plug, though there were wires from lamps and clocks being fed under the mattress to a hidden power strip. On top of that, the hotel was charging for everything: a disposable razor kit, usually provided complimentary by even the airportiest of airport hotels - 4900ISK (€35/$38); a sleeping mask - 3900ISK (€27/$30); and even a US/UK plug adapter…which I assume could just be reused? - 2400ISK (€16.50/$19). The bed, the ultimate reason for hotels, was also just fine. Because of the aforementioned cord situation, it didn’t sit flush on the bed frame and so it moved everytime I got up or got in it - kind of annoying to say the least. And finally, the room lacked a key item that should exist in every hotel north of the 50th parallel: blackout curtains. In late July, the sun rises in Reykjavik at an eye-watering 4:30AM, with light skies starting around 3AM - there isn’t real darkness in this Arctic Summer, making blackout curtains a critical necessity. I accept that prices in Reykjavik in the summer are high - I accept that prices in Iceland are high, in general. Yet, 101 Hotel is consistently one of the most expensive hotels in Reykjavik, and prides itself publicly on its commitment to high quality and luxury. I didn’t really experience either during my four night stay. I also must point out that just because some place is expensive, doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be any sort of acknowledgement of the expense. Paying almost $500 a night for a hotel room is not a small endeavor, and the fact that the hotel acted as though I had money to throw away was I think the cherry on top of a very disappointing sundae.
