We wanted to live in what we heard was one of reykjaviks epic hotels. We booked 2 nights with the specific purpose of eating at the restaurant which we also researched (the chef). Very excited. When we came, the restaurant had closed, the hotel is presently in the middle of a Building site with constant noise. Not at all what... More

Pros: great central location; incredible renovation with unparalleled devotion to detail of 1930's deco style. Tasteful and reserved decor. Cons: expensive and misleading - I booked a suite which was clearly no more than a deluxe double room- no separate sitting room; top floor next to the elevator (what hotel puts a suite next to an elevator?); low ceilings and...

1920's Art Deco hotel with appropriate period decor throughout. Well maintained and updated. Bathroom was new and well appointed. Bedroom nicely decorated with a new mattress. Rooms were on the small side. The only negative I can report is that you should bring your own Toilet paper as whatever brand they are using could double as chip board.

Well appointed rooms with views over the square the staff were helpful if not a little stand offish. The bedroom was spacious warm and reasonably quiet to say it overlooked the main square where all night revelers congregate the sleep quality was very good. The hotel is styled in a art deco fashion with tinted windows. It is centrally located... More

The Borg was built in the ‘30s and reflects its art deco roots. Its central location cannot be beat; one can walk to everything in town. The standard rooms can be tiny, and cannot practically handle both a desk chair and second chair. Our room had a pocket bathroom so small that there was no place whatsoever for gear except... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July as part of our honeymoon. It is a nice hotel, with spacious and clean rooms in central Reykjavik. Very nice, classic Icelandic breakfast with lots of fresh fish, muesli and skyr. There are some clubs and pubs nearby, which might be annoying if you are a light sleeper, but it wasn't a... More

The Borg is a large boutique hotel located on Reykjavik's main park square. It is decorated in a pleasing Art Deco style. Reception was pleasant but understated. We had asked for a quiet room in the back because the facing park is notorious for all night loud partying on the weekend, but our superior room class is available only on... More

First the pluses: the hotel is in an excellent location, is pretty and charming, and the more expensive rooms have wonderful Hastens beds. Now the drawbacks: (1) Much of the staff is not especially nice, and in many cases they are downright unpleasant. (2) Thanks to the hotel's central location, dozens if not hundreds of people hang out at the... More

Our fitst visit and we found the Borg to be a great hotel in many respects. Our experience with the staff was very good - friendly and helpful. The room was a good size and was kept clean. The location was great for some very good restaurants and shopping. The shortcomings were as follows:(1) This time of year in Iceland,... More

Great location, great decor. However do not come here for a cuddly, friendly welcome. Seems a shame to spend the money on the infrastructure but fail to train the staff. We nicknamed the four we experienced at the front desk 'grumpy' ' surly', 'bored' and 'indifferent'. However we loved the central location and slept well. Just as well or we... More
