101 Hotel

    The sleek 101 Hotel in Iceland’s stylish yet unpretentious capital exhibits several pieces from designer and owner Ingibjörg Pálmadóttir’s collection of contemporary Icelandic art. The most dramatic, a wall-like composition of gently bulging shapes (which represent pregnancy), rises several stories and is visible from the glass-roofed bar and from several of the 38 guest rooms. Though thoroughly modern in design, the Accommodations themselves do not sacrifice luxury or practicality for style’s sake. But Pálmadóttir, a Reykjavik resident, would prefer that her guests not become too comfortable in their quarters: The purpose of visiting Iceland, she says, is to sally forth into the island nation’s nature and culture. Accommodations 38 large rooms, each with a walk-in shower and views of the city below. Facilities Compete fitness center, Jacuzzi, and steam rooms are available for each guest. A conference room with seating for 10-12 and a projector are helpful for business meetings. Dining 101 Hotel’s restaurant mixes the elegant with the classic. With high walls, a glass ceiling, and a long narrow bar to sit and people watch, the restaurant is the meeting place of the hotel. Concierge Recommends Request a massage from the in-house masseuse, who will come to your room to help you relax before you fall into your (room standard) king-size bed. Rates From $430 to about $1,130.
