What To Know

  • Breakfast isn’t included in the room rate, and food in Iceland is expensive
  • If you’re renting a car, it’s a long way between the city and anywhere else. Carry emergency provisions (blankets, food, water, flashlights, etc.) with you
  • This can be a raucous location on weekend nights
  • This is far north — extreme daylight or equally extreme darkness can predominate depending upon the time of the year
  • Consider renting a car; taxis to/from the international airport are about $122 each way

Okay

Great location - though not during weekend, where the noice from the inner city nightlife keeps you up at night !

Had a standard room, spacious enough for two and a very nice and comfortable bed ! Modern interior, but when it came down to the small details - nothing extraordinary.

I was lucky to be able to use some discount points, which made it worth staying - but otherwise way to overpriced!

Main reason for my choice of this hotel was that they had a spa- upon arrival we were told that it was under construction. Quite disappointing!! Could have mentioned that on the webpage.
Could have chosen another, just as modern and inner city hotel, which costed way less.

Breakfast; the buffe is very delicious, pricy as well

All in all- a fine stay and an okay hotel

A terrible place to stay

This location is not worthy of a Marriott label.

Person claiming to be manager is rude and condescending.

The breakfast person is lazy, will not replenish food once the small portion placed on the counter is finished; like the 4 scrambled eggs in the heated pot. Once those were done, that was it. Peanut butter? sorry no more. Sliced bread? We are out. And, this was always more than an hour before the end of breakfast.

The room is very noisy. A bar or something in the hotel reverberates through the room. The traffic outside is fairly heavy, but that didn't bother me.

Internet? Yeah right. You will have to go in the hallway by the lobby to use it, because in room 109 there isn't any.

TV? Works 80% of the time, the rest it is just frozen bars of colors.

The only reason for the one star.. Staff at dinner were extremely nice and the food was decent.

So, have dinner here, but stay elsewhere.

Perfect way to start our stay in Iceland!

We weren't really sure what to expect when we arrived. We got to the hotel very early - before 9AM and we expected that we would have to keep ourselves busy until the room was ready. Upon check in, Omar (who is WONDERFUL) found out that we were visiting Iceland to celebrate our anniversary. He immediately upgraded our room and allowed us to check in right away. The hotel was very quiet (it was a Wednesday morning) and we were thankful to have a place to rest following our overnight flight in. The hotel is very convenient to walking downtown as well as for our tour pick up. We were able to leave our car in the garage located just a block or so away and everything was completely safe. We plan on visiting Reykjavik again for a longer stay and are planning on staying at the 101 again.

Great stay!

Had a great time here, location is fantastic and the stuff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms are a good size and offer a great night sleep to get you ready for the next day of adventures. The hotel is also steps away from stop number 6 which is one of the main pick up points for day trips and airport pickups.

Good hotel location

Solid location and amenities. All else is just okay for the price/points, and my expectations. My room was different and bigger than my travel mates, the window wasn't sealed properly the first night and so we slept terribly until we closed it. Nice furniture and accomodating. Nothing outstanding regarding service but not terrible either.
