A member of Design Hotels. For Iceland’s foremost foray into the realm of design-led hotels, owner and designer Ingibjörg S. Pálmadóttir, who has used modern lines, local artwork, and a palette of black, grey, and white to convey pure Nordic coolness at 101 Hotel.
The spare, glossy, and masculine bar’s style is an innovative mixture of Chinese lacquered tables, wooden blocks, and Edwardian chairs. It’s a contrast to the restaurant’s ladylike atmosphere, where a white dimpled mural runs alongside the glass roof, while 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.
