Reykjavik's 101 Hotel may be all black and white, but Sixties-style furnishings, rough-wood accents echoing the tantalisingly close countryside and quirky artwork (bas-reliefs of impish faces and silvery alien statues) add the dash of eccentric detailing you’d expect from the city that Björk and Sigur Rós call home. With a slick mini spa and a sci-fi-style restaurant perched at a prime city-gazing height, this is one of the most in-vogue stays in Iceland.
101 Gallery hosts special exhibitions and has an impressive permanent collection of works by local artists, which spill out into the communal spaces of the hotel itself.
