“Art deco luxury”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is the oldest and one of the most expensive hotels in Reykjavik and on arrival you can see why. The art deco style in the public areas and the rooms is like a little bit of New York luxury in the middle of Iceland. The room we had was large and beautifully appointed, reception staff were helpful and friendly, the restaurant was fantastic and offered quality food and the location was perfect. My only complaint is that the restaurant staff were formal and a bit self important and one night we had particularly bad service at the bar. This was disappointing considering everything else was so impressive. Also, there is a wine bar next door under the same management which is excellent. It is less formal and offers casual food including tapas style dishes with a great variety of beers and wines.

Hotel Borg is in the real center of Reykjavik. I did not try the restaurant but the breakfast was very nice. staff was friendly and did give a lot of help.
Location is perfect in the shopping area of Reykjavik. They have no gym but nearby it is available

Due to overbooking at Bjork, I ended up in Hotel Borg- sounds like something from Star Trek.

this is a very nice hotel located right smack in the middle of city center. My room is spacious with two sitting chairs and a desk with another chair. The bathroom is big with a full size sink. I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. During my stay in Reykjavik, I have stayed in three different hotels. Hotel Borg is the best of the three- bar none.

Loved this hotel. It's like an Art Deco time warp. It is in the historic part of town. The service was excellent as was the accommodation and breakfast. Much nicer than staying in a modern plastic hotel. It has character and charm and free internet! I would definitely stay here again.

The best hotel in iceland. Its in a great location; the staff are friendly and helpful and the art deco design is wonderful. Staying at the Borg is a good way to treat yourself at the beginning or end of your iceland experience.

Staying in a classic and beautiful art deco adorned hotel makes the stay in Raykjavic a pleasure. The staff was very friendly accommodating with suggestions about the area and it's sights. The easy walking distance to the city center and transportation is an asset. I would stay here on another future visit.

I think this is the place to stay in Reykjavic. It is an older hotel in a good location. We had 4 adults and 3 children. All rooms were nice, but not really special. The hotel is very well-run and efficient and the location is great. The buffet breakfast is plentiful and good with a very Icelandic menu. There is a park like green space in front of the hotel, kind of like a town square. We arrived on Independence Day and all the festivities seemed to be taking place there. We had a great view because our room had a window facing out the front of the hotel. There are shops and restaurants within walking distance and the staff was very helpful.
