The Hotel Borg is in a great location situated on a main square within a five minute walk from the old harbor. The rooms were comfortable although a bit overheated so we had to open the window to cool off the room. The buffet breakfast at the Borg and the Grimsborgir (we stayed there the following night) were the best... More

I'm finally getting caught up on my reviews. The Hotel Borg was fantastic! We used it for a week during our holiday trip to Europe. I LOVE architecture!! The Art Deco style is fantastic. I've logged 7500 nights in hotels and this one was spot on. Large generous room, stunning view of the plaza, VERY quiet at night, the bedding... More

The main thing about this hotel is that it is located in the center place of the Iceland. All the nearby places can be visited on foot. And the services of the hotel is also good. Overall our family loved to stay there.

Dear Dhiraj R - We thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We certainly are in the middle of everything here in Reykjavík. Although, sometimes it does indeed feel like we are in the middle of the entire country! We are very much pleased that you enjoyed the service as well. We look forward to welcoming you... More

Very good hotel. Stayed at the start and end of a 10 day trip to Iceland. Perfectly placed in the centre of town with everything in walking distance. Room size was adequate but the room facilities were good. We didn't use the restaurant as the Hotel was just finishing off extensive renovations which should look great when they are finished.

Let's calibrate expectations a bit. This is Iceland. Huge extravagant luxurious all inclusive pampering beach resorts do not exist here. If you are looking for that, you are likely picking the wrong country to visit. The Borg is a European style luxury hotel. Everything beautifully finished, clean, with a subdued elegance. Marble, wood, metal in wonderful harmony, but not over... More

The hotel is in every way a fine hotel. Rooms, lobby, restaurant, everything looks swank and new. The rooms have very comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. The hotel is located at city center within walking distance to everything important to the tourist..... Shopping, banks restaurants and cafes. Also there are several pubs close by. And that is where the... More

Borg is a nice place, with a very helpful staff and very well appointed rooms. It is located near many restaurants and the harbor. The shopping district is an easy walk around the corner. The staff was very helpful in making reservations, directions, making suggestions for places to visit. There is construction on going, which is well-managed, but a bit... More

We stayed for two nights on a tour of Iceland. Good size rooms by European standards, and located in close proximity to several good restaurants. Breakfast is included, and is much better than the standard included meals at other hotels. There is some construction ongoing, so ask for a room on the higher floors.

The sad part of this review is the hotel itself is quite beautiful with the rooms beautifully appointed. Everything in place for a nice stay except for the staff working there!! I arrived in the small lobby, the only customer there with three of the staff sitting at the desk looking at two computer screens. Not one of them looked... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Hotel Borg. The location is great with easy access to the nearby attractions - with a lovely little walk to the Hallgrímskirkja church and easy walks to lots of nearby restaurants and bars. The room was spacious with a decent size TV and bathroom. The hotel itself is art deco in style and... More
