Great place to be in the middle of town. We stayed here two nights upon arriving to Reykjavik before driving around the country on our 14 day itinerary! Loved this place and it is probably one of the better hotels to stay in. If you are in a quiet room away from the bar next door that would be best.... More

Taken on its own, the Hotel Borg is beautiful, the rooms and linens are fantastic, amenities are great, etc. But the hotel needs to address 3 major issues: 1) Soundproofing. It is in a busy, party-scene part of town, with a night club nearby that is loud until 4 am. The front desk was unapologetic about this. A better hotel... More

This hotel was quite nice and was in a wonderful location (this being one of the main highlights) as well as being a beautiful hotel. Like most hotels in Reykjavik, it is small but the rooms and service are wonderful and they have a small gym and spa (the gym is very similar to a gym you may see at... More

Later when I realized they had actually upgraded me to a room I was complaining about, I understood the reality of Iceland at high season. The room was nice but as other reviewers have noted, the bathrooms were small with no shelving, cabinets. No nightstands, dresser so for a 4 night stay your stuff is everywhere. Note that a large...

In downtown Reykjavik, by the parliament park and close to the main shopping area, the Borg is a renovated old hotel that will give you access to all you want in the city, plus a comfortable room, and a good night's sleep if you choose your room wisely :). Staff are very welcoming and will help with any tour or... More

We chose this hotel, reputedly the best in Reykjavik, following a very busy activity holiday in Iceland, as a relaxing treat for our final night. BIG MISTAKE!!! We were rudely awoken by continuous loud, booming, bass noises at around 3 a.m. and I contacted the Front Desk. The response was - to put it mildly - not helpful, including being... More

Fabulous location in the heart of the city for visiting the attractions of the Capital. Great location for transport connections. Avoid rooms 120, 220 and 320 unless you enjoy loud music until 04:30am.
