Our group from Asia did a southern Iceland tour, which originated from and ended at Reykjavik. The Hotel Borg was our introduction to Icelandic hospitality and gave us the spirit to embark on our subsequent 5 day drive. A very strong name with a strong tradition. Rooms were spacious and the fine dark wood gave them the authentic feel of... More

Beautiful looking hotel, both inside and out. Set in a very convenient part of the city, close to the old harbour and city centre. the room was very comfortable and the double aspect views were fantastic. We will happily return to this hotel again

Upgraded to tower suite as it was our anniversary. Very central location. Great rooms, very comfortable bed. Only 2 small gripes: there were not enough channels on the B&O tv, but we werent in the room that much to really notice this, and breakfast selection was good but not outstanding. Best part was the service. Very friendly front of desk... More

Hotel Borg is, I gather, a bit of a cultural reference point in Iceland, not just any old hotel. I didn't know that before I booked to stay there, but it's quite evident as you enter its lobby that the hotel is a bit special. I suppose I should be fair and give one or two gripes here, in the...

A cool place indeed, a few tips, dodge the £14 breakfast and Pop across to Cafe Paris for bacon and eggs and proper tea & coffee. The room was good, but the double bed had 2 single quilts, and the tv only had 5 channels, the water wasn't overly warm in the shower either, but I'd still stay here again... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, right in the centre of Reykjavik, easy walking to restaurants, the harbour etc. The hotel is comfortable and we loved the art deco styling. We had 2 interconnecting rooms which were great. The bath water has a distinctive sulphur smell due to the geothermal source but wasn't a real problem. So why disappointed... More

We are sorry to hear of your disappointment regarding the temporary closer of the lunch and dinner services in our adjacent restaurant.

My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay during New Years. The hotel was a fantastic spot within minutes walking to restaurants, shops etc. We loved the location. The hotel was a nice, historic building. The beds were comfortable, the room had plenty of space and the bathroom included heated floor and towel racks. Because it is... More

I booked my Iceland New Year's Eve trip through Nordic Visitor and was booked at the Hotel Borg. I was very pleased with the location, the service, the decor and the breakfast served at the hotel. I'd read mixed reviews about some quests complaining about the noise level from a nearby club. That was never the case. I slept soundly... More

I first stayed in this hotel several years ago, and loved it. It still does not disappoint. The staff are friendly and warm (like all Icelanders) and the hotel situation and interior are both perfect. Underfloor heating in the bathroom was very welcome!

Just spent a long weekend in this great hotel! Fantastic decor, great location and lovely and warm! Staff really friendly and helpful. Only one negative was the bed, feet end was higher than the head, but you don't notice after a few drinks! Would recommend!
