Well placed hotel to explore Reykjavik and Iceland. Within walking distance of tour companies, the shops and all the hostelries. Our first visit was to the English pub as our room wasn't ready and our evening meal at Cafe de Paris! Very Icelandic! However we soon found more traditional restaurants and bars most of which were quite pricey but very... More

Stayed one night at Hotel Borg our first night in Iceland The location is ideal, but getting good parking is tough. We had to park in a parking lot down the street and wheel our luggage quite a ways-otherwise the location couldnt have been better. Reykajvik is beautiful and this hotel was a great place to start our trip.

Centrally located in Reykjavik made life so easy for our stay in early May. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Room was very pretty and clean. I was put off by the noise from the renovation. It was not constant but never the less there. I felt that there should have been some compensation for the inconvenience as the stay... More

We had absolutely zero complaints. You couldn't ask for a better location, and the spot was perfect for exploring downtown and nearby areas on foot. We had no issues with noise, and the staff was great. This is a formal hotel, and is not boutique or funky. There are lots of great choices nearby if that's what you're after. We... More

This hotel is ideally situated for exploring Reykjavik on foot or through the city bus lines and for taking day tours of Iceland using the services of tour companies like Gray Line and Sterna Tours. The Gray Line office is just around the corner and down one block. You can use Gray Lines airport shuttle and not have to pay... More

Stayed here for one night in February. Good room, well decorated in a classic 1920's style manhattan feel. The reception staff were very helpful in seeing our rental car being picked up and recommending bars and restaurants. They have a nice bar attached but it's best to download the 'appy hour' app and see what happy hours are going on.... More

No denying this hotel is well situated on a lovely square in the most inviting area of Reykjavik ... and the exterior is both imposing and inviting, urging you to enter and explore inside! But that's it. First, if you arrive in your own vehicle, you are on your own, with metered street parking for which you could spend an... More

We stayed here over two nights arriving 1st May. I thought it a very trendy place. Certainly retro - art deco (original?) and whilst lived in not shabby at all. We didn't eat an evening meal here so can't comment on that. Breakfast was basic but plenty of variation and fresh. The room was large and clean. As others have... More

We stayed here for the days leading up to our wedding and then our honeymoon. The staff were beyond helpful and after we arrived back from our wedding service the Hotel gave us a high end bottle of extremely fine champagne. I can't wait until we can stay there again - no complaints at all. Everything was beyond satisfactory. Just... More
