We arrived early. The staff was very accommodating. We went for breakfast while they made up the room which was lovely. Great view of the square. They helped us make local calls when there was some confusion with our arrangements. Great location. Very comfortable. Breakfast was good with a wide variety. Actually it was one of the better buffets we... More

I loved our stay at the Borg. The location is perfect with all the nice eateries such as apotek, fish market and Gandhi just nearby. It's also a convenient 5 minute walk from the harbour and the main shopping strip. The rooms are tastefully decorated and come with all the amenities. The restaurant was closed when we went, but the... More

We recently stayed at the Borg for four nights. Centrally located well appointed. Pity no restaurant or room service. Only criticism was it was too warm. Rooms and bathrooms overheated with limited ability to control the heat. Staff friendly but didn't go out of their way to offer advise or assistance. Perhaps the Icelandic and Nordic way - a little... More

This was our first trip to Iceland and Hotel Borg made a perfect base. It is centrally located and a short walk to most of Reykjavik's sights. Our hotel room was dual aspect with lovely views of Austurvollur Square. Both the room and bathroom were a good size, nicely decorated and clean. It was warm with controllable heating, and had...

I highly recommend the Hotel Borg for any visitors to Reykjavik. The best thing about this hotel is its central location... Just steps away from the best restaurants, pubs and shops. I booked a single room and it was spacious (by European/NYC standards). The room was tastefully decorated. There was a down comforter and heated bathroom floors. I booked all... More

We stayed at the hotel over the course of 4 days/3 nights for our trip to Iceland. Below are the pros and cons of our stay: Pros - Very close to all of the restaurants/places of interest in central Rejkavic - Beautifully decorated in an art deco style, especially the downstairs lobby area - Staff were very friendly and accommodating...

We recently spent a long weekend in Iceland. We wanted to get out into the wilds (which was amazing), so only spent one night in Reykjavik, at the Borg; what a lovely hotel. Our kids and my wife and I had adjoining rooms - we were upgraded to an awesome suite, which was a real bonus!! Our rooms were tastefully... More

Just got back from Iceland and stayed at this great hotel during February 2015. Staff was kind and very helpful in regards to helping us make reservations at local restaurants. The hotel room was very clean and had all the amenities you would hope to find. My wife and I plan to visit Iceland again in the next few years... More

My adult son and myself stayed at this super Hotel for 3 nights in two single rooms, both en-suite, in early February. The Hotel Borg is beautifully furnished and in the art deco style throughout. Our break was organised by the tour operator Nordic Visitor at short notice and they asked whether we wanted Comfort or Quality in a hotel... More
