Just stayed 2 nights. Lovely hotel in art deco style right on the main square overlooking the Radhus. Restaurant was vlisdd for refurbishment but plenty of choice nearby. We had a front room and heard no noise from square on Friday night but other reviews have mentioned noise. Recommended

My husband surprised me with a trip to Iceland for my 50th birthday, He thought he was booking a fantastic hotel to mark a very special occassion, we were very disappointed. When we checked in there appeared confusion as to the fact that my husband had pre-paid the accommodation including breakfast. A surly receptionist informed him he had not pre-paid... More

Seems I'm in a minority here but our recent stay at "The Borg" was wonderful! Yes, there is construction - but I didn't travel to Iceland to sleep-in. Yes, one of the individuals who 'mans' the desk was less than perfect - but then, so am I... Sigga, Rachel (sp) and Helene were marvelous with Sigga being my initial contact.... More

Expected to love this Art Deco hotel located in center of Reykjavik across from a lovely square. But, the front-desk service was disappointing for a hotel of this caliber. Breakfast buffet at additional cost had limited options. But worst of all: the noise! Apparently, if your room faces the park, the noise from revelers might keep you awake. But due... More

Spent 3 nights at this hotel while exploring Reykjavik. We chose this hotel because of its good location and because of its Art Deco style. It was a good location, and we could walk to all of the sights. It was also very attractive, with authentic decor. However, it was very noisy. We were awakened each morning by hammering sounds...

Excellent location, very nice hotel with clean, light and spacious rooms. Art deco style in every detail. Very good Wi-Fi but weak (almost none) signal in our room. Excellent king size bed and shower. Nice restaurant, good breakfast buffet with less extensive choices than in some of the other hotels. Pleasant staff during breakfast. Hotel has no parking and a...

Just spent 3 nights at the Hotel Borg. Hotel is perfectly located in the center of Reykjavik and we were pleased with the room size and view (5th floor). There are no real amenities at the hotel, no gym, restaurant was closed and my main complaint, there was no AC in the room. This meant that we had to open... More

My wife and I had to make an emergency trip to Reykjavik to help my 84 year old father. He fell and broke his hip while touring Iceland. We arrived in Reykjavik at 6 AM with no reservations. All of the hotels in the city center were booked solid as it was Cultural Day. A crowd of 100K+ was expected... More

Nice looking hotel, perfect setting and location, but no value for money. Madrasses are from 70s, and the noise! Impossible to sleep, you can here every word from all the other rooms. I have never been in this kind of motel in my life.

No sleep Did change room in AM although staff cold and indifferent( hence Borg reference)... More
