“Great Location, helpful staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Hotel Borg is in the perfect location in Reykjavik, a great place to start a self-walk through the city's main sights. We had lots of questions for the reception staff (directions, restaurant recommendations, parking suggestions, etc), and they were patient and helpful each time. Thank you for a great stay!

We stayed there for 3 nights in a superior room.
The hotel is perfectly located in the middle of everything you need to visit / shop / eat or drink in the city.
The Art Deco touch actually makes it more trendy than anything else, the bar is just unique so even if you do not stay in the hotel, a drink there is a must do in Reykjavik!
Our room was on the top floor which was good as the streets can get noisy late at night. Not huge but cosy and spotless. Nice bathroom with amenities.
Breakfast was awesome, so make sure you don't pass and go for local taste of course.
Welcoming and efficient staff. We'll definitely return there.

We recently stayed 7 nights at the Borg Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The art deco interior was refreshing and stylish, the staff were generally friendly and helpful, and the location was convenient. On the fifth floor at the back the noise from the bar downstairs was minimal, although it may be bothersome if you are a light sleeper. The breakfast buffet, included in our room tariff, was worth getting out of bed for in itself! Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

Room Tip: Top floor at the back!

This is a lovely decorated and very comfortable hotel. It is right in the city center of Reykjavik and every restaurant and shop is just a couple of minutes walk. The rooms and beds are extremely comfortable and the Eider down comforters are wonderful. Great heating in the room. The restaurant and breakfast are very good. We stayed in October and the prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed with my 16 year old son for a few days adventure break away. Couldn't fault the location, within walking distance to cafes/restuarants. Staff helpful and friendly, rooms very clean. Enjoyable breakfasts. All round very good hotel.
slightly noisy with bars below but didnt cause any major problem and I would definitely not hesitate to stay here again.

My reservation was for a queen bed, yet when i got there what i got was something between a twin and a full inside of a room about the size of a dorm room- i'm not sure an actual queen bed would have fit in it. I thought maybe it had been my mistake and that perhaps in iceland queen beds are that size. Upon checking into the second hotel of the trip, also booked a queen, I noticed that a queen in iceland is the same as a queen here and that hotel borg had made a mistake somehow. However, this didnt really bother me. i was there with my husband and it was our honeymoon so having to cuddle wasn't a problem.
Our flight got in at 6 am and by the time we got to the hotel it was about 8am- check in isnt until 3pm but we were going to ask the hotel to hold our bags until then. Instead, they made a phonecall and let us know that our room was ready and let us check in. This great customer service was found throughout our stay- on the last day the rental company didnt drop off our car at the time we had reserved and the front desk was happy to take care of it.
The location is also unbeatable. 5 minutes from anything you could think of. I would definitely recommend Hotel Borg!

Room Tip: perhaps consider upgrading to a suite if you're considered about small room space. Husband compl...
