If you ever travel to Reykjavik Iceland, I highly recommend Hotel Borg! Very nice rooms and excellent service and food! Great breakfast and dinner in their restaurant! Also, right in the middle of the shopping and restaurant district with multiple dining choices within steps of the hotel. A bank is also a half block away for exchanging money. Excellent choice for a hotel!

Hotel's Favorite
Terrific hotel! Very clean and quiet. Decor was authentic Art Deco and very chic; building is historic and in great shape. It is right next door to the Apotek Hotel (also historic) but off the busy corner. There are many great restaurants, bars and cafes nearby and the main shopping and eating neighborhood is a short, two block walk. Rooms are very clean, sheets are crisp and soft and bedding is wonderful. Room enough for two suitcases and they provide two folding stands. Closet space, fridge and safe are all there. There are blackout curtains (of course!). Bathroom floors are marble and heated, towels warmed on a rack and tremendous water pressure! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet is terrific and had everything we could want. Very easy to quickly eat but also a beautiful dining room filled with big windows and banquets if you have time to stay and enjoy. I would happily return here and hopefully stay longer next time.

Couldn't have chosen a better hotel for our stay. An absolute perfect location in the heart of everything! Excursions booked through the hotel were top of the line and the front desk were so helpful at all times.

This is the best hotel I've stayed at in Reykjavik during my three visits to Iceland. It's situated on a small square close to the walking street and the small lake in town which is perfect for a short jog in the morning. We had a corner room on the third floor overlooking the square and we were very happy with the receptionists who gave us great advice on buses and sightseeing. Breakfast was not included and expensive as everything else in Iceland, but the nice but not great buffet wasn't really worth the price. You even had to pay extra for a cappuccino or an Americano which we found slightly ridiculous. But don't get me wrong, we would stay here again in a flash.

We enjoyed our stay at the Borg. It was within easy walking distance of all the top ten sites we like to visit in downtown Reykjavik. Near the Pond, near the harbor, near shops and eateries. Lots of our favorite restaurants, coffee shops, and bakeries are nearby.

It felt like a bit of luxury at the end of our Iceland trip. Nice atmosphere, nice rooms, lovely spa and a magnificent breakfast. Near to the church and near to all shopping and of course also near restaurants.

Very nice hotel in a convenient location. Our room had a lovely view of the square, but unfortunately that meant it was very noisy at night! Had we known we would have asked for a quiet room at the back of the hotel. Also, it would be helpful if the restaurant and bar were open for more hours.
