Hverfisgata 10, Reykjavik, Iceland
The Coolest place
The 101 hotel is new and designed by the owner. Everything is very modern but warm and each piece of furniture has been carefully selected by the owner. There is a small spa and gym on the ground floor. 2 meeting rooms and a pool table. There is a longe and one of the nicer bars here in Iceland. The rooms are all very nice and decorated in a modern minimal style. Main colors are black and white and a light oak on the floors. There are dvd´s, tv, telephones internet access. Then in the rooms there are t-shirts, books, umbrellas, hats, cameras and many more things related to Icalnd for sale in the room. The suites are gorgeus and very cool. The decor is very stylish. If you have money and enjoy beutiful suroundings I would recomend it. Celebrities stay there for example cast from Dawsons creek, CSI and Footballers from Chelsea football club.
Unique Quality: I think the house is very nice and since it´s very small it doesn´t have availabilety for many people. Tehy do not have groups of people who are going on guided tours it´s alot of business and just a few groups of friends or romantic trips. I like it because it´s relaxing to go into the bar/longe and have a coffee in the mornig without having a stampeed of people getting ready to go to a bus or a line at the breakfast table. So if you want to be free of that this is the place for you.
Directions: Right in the city centre...heart of Reykajvík by the shopping street

Hotel Reykjavik at Raudarastigur 37
About £80 (120 Euro) a night for a double room out of high season. We were initially given a poky room with not even enough space on the floor to open a suitcase up. After requesting a change we were politely allocated a much more pleasant room.
The water out of the showers and the taps appeared to be natural geothermal water - the smell was unbelievable, like washing your face in rotten eggs! Strangely, you do seem to get used to it. Silver jewellery turns black after just one shower.
Nice place to stay
The hotel was in a reasonable position with only a short walk to the church or the shops. I found you could walk anywhere around the town easily.
The hotel was comfortable and the staff friendly. The breakfast was great too!!
Park Inn Island
This hotel proved perfect for our stay and our requirements. Very clean, efficiently run, the room and bathroom were of a very good standard. My request for synthetic bedding was immediately met without further ado and staff were always at hand to help in anyway possible.
We ate breakfast here each morning and it was very satisfactory. Plenty of cereal, juices, yoghurt, fruit along with cooked and continental breakfast available.
Tea and coffee is provided in each room. Situated a short walk from the town centre, it is ideal, with buses passing by regularly.
Radisson Saga, Reykjavik
The Saga hotel is quite well located, only 10 minutes walk from the centre. It has a nice view from the roof over Reykjavik (see attached picture). Breakfast is good (standard Scandinavian).
A big plus is the free internet (broadband or wireless) in the rooms. Wireless reception is rather weak. but you can get a cable from reception and use the hotel network.
Not so good is the limited choice of TV channels (only 6) although Icelandic TV has films with subtitles.
The price is high, as to be expected for Iceland, but not higher than equivalent **** hotels in Reykjavik.
There is a nice souvenir shop downstairs. Staff are friendly, especially the Filipino cleaners (how did they get to Iceland?).
The lifts are a bit confusing - at the front they use the normal system (0 = ground floor) and at the back they use the American system (1 = ground floor), so you will probably end up making unwanted visits to the basement or 1st floor depending on where you're from.
There's a travel centre downstairs which arranges trips to local attractions (Blue Lagoon, Northern lights etc). Great views.
Good clean well located Hotel
I used to work there and I consider this to be a very friendly, clean and well located hotel
I would highly reccomend it to every one. Clean, friendly and well located Hotel . All buses runing near by, 2 just outside the door going down town and to the shoping mall.
Great Breakfast Buffet
Definitely a great location for getting around Reykjavik. It's very close to many restaurants, pubs, and shopping. We had some issues with the front desk though. We were told we wouldn't be charged for certain phone calls, then they were on the bill. It took us a couple hours and three different people to have them removed (it was a substantial amount, definitely worth arguing).
The picture from their site (and many travel sites) is deceiving...it looks as if the hotel is right on the water. It's not. It's a few blocks from the bay, and is surrounded by other buildings or streets.
Try to get a room away from the Hverfisgata side. The street noise went all night long with cars screaching and people talking, laughing, yelling, partying, etc. Computer with internet in the room was very helpful.
The breakfast buffet was the best we had in iceland. Instead of just having the local buffet of deli meats, cheese, fish, fruit, etc, they also have hot breakfast. Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes. We always had great service in the restaurant.
Hotel Orkin - Reykjavik
We got in quite late (but this was scheduled), so was no surprise to the hotel. When we got there, the door was locked and we had to phone someone to let us in.
There person at the front desk must have disappeared moments after we checked in, because the beds were not made up. The buzzer at the front desk was not functioning, or was being ignored.
When confronted with this in the morning, no apologies etc. They just blamed the cleaning staff and also claimed the buzzer was working. A so-so hotel to begin with. Not a place I would recommend.
Great hotel, but super expensive
This is a first class hotel from the quality of the rooms perspective. The beds were ridiculously comfortable, the shower was one of the best I have ever experienced, and it just had a very clean feel to all. But the service left something to be desired as the staff seemed to be a little disinterested, cold, or apathetic most of the time. It is also expensive to do anything like order food or have ice brought up to your room (apparently there is a $5 charge for that).
Given the converted price of US$ 300 I would say it is not worth it to stay here, unless you are a baller and money is no expense then I think you will enjoy it.
Staying with the stars?
One of our latest hotel is the 101 hotel which is situated in downtown Reykjavik, the 101 as it is called. That area is the most popular area in Reykjavik. This very so modern hotel gives the hollywood stars roove over their heads while staying in Iceland.. or at least most of them. Do you want to sleep in the same bed as Harrison Ford? Then this is the hotel for you! However, the price of one night is absurd and you really have to be a movie star to be able to stay there!

Late October-Early November Trip. Beer & Northern Lights?
I will be traveling to Reykjavik in late October or early November.
A few questions:
1.) What is the weather like this time of year?
2.) I've heard beer is very expensive as compared to the U.S. Is it that outrageous? I love my beer and would hate to be spending $10 a bottle!
3.) Can the Northern Lights be seen at this time?
4.) We're not really into "clubbing", but are there a good amount of casual pubs and bars in the area?
Thanks for all the help you can provide. We are a bunch of adults in our mid 30's looking for fun things to see and do, must-see places to go, and places to find good beer! Any advice would be appreciated!

I can get you 20 % discount at the Irish pub in town Dubliner you can see the rate and how much things are in usd if you know it in Icelandic here. . http://www.kbbanki.is/ so if you put in the regular price 600 you se it is a little over 8 usd and take 20 % of that and you see what you pay.

RE: RE: Late October-Early November Trip. Beer & Northern Lights?
1: Mean temperature October +3c, November +1.6c. and a good chance of rain and wind so be prepared for everything!
3: yes they can be seen but not much of a chance seeing them in Reykjavik because of the city lights. You're best bet is to get outside Reykjavik. You also need special weather conditions - a clear sky and sub-zero temperatures. A few tour companies here do northern lights tours, try www.iea.is and www.re.is.
