HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
101 Hotel is undeniably cool. For Iceland's first foray into the realm of chic hotels, owner and designer Ingibjörg S. Pálmadóttir has transformed the Icelandic Social Democratic Party's former home into the quintessence of Nordic style. This former office building erected in the 1930s is now Iceland's casual-chic lightning rod, where guests and locals gather around tree-trunk tables and classic pieces by Eero Saarinen and Philippe Starck, bathed in the warm glow of a communal lounge fireplace. The spare, glossy, and masculine bar's style is an innovative mixture of Chinese lacquered tables, wooden blocks, and Edwardian chairs.
In contrast is the restaurant's ladylike atmosphere, where a white dimpled mural runs alongside the glass roof and guests can perch on iconic Eros chairs. Throughout the public areas, monochromatic design and clear lines showcase the hotel's collection of art by Icelandic artists. But coolness melts away in the guestrooms' rustic warmth. Here visitors can bask in Iceland's famous hospitality with heated oak floors, white Italian bed linen, mate and glossy black furnishings, Artemide lamps, and a bathroom with a freestanding bathtub waiting to be filled with geothermal waters.
