“Honey-Start”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Well, it was some 5 years ago, but if nothing has changed for the worse, I'd say this was a great place to start our honeymoon Iceland tour. Very comfortable! The staff were extra nice to us, and the whole place had a calming feel to it!

Great small hotel (by US standards) with everything you need right in the middle of Reykjavik. The staff was extremely helpful and the room was very clean; it was small but comfortable and quiet at night. Very loud during the day with construction next door: not the Borg's fault. We decided just to get up when the drilling started each morning and get out and about. Good coffee, which they will give you to go if you are heading out on a tour. The front desk staff will make any reservations or arrangements you need for restaurants, tours, car or bus pick ups. You can easily walk anywhere in Reykjavik from here.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quiet at night. Rooms overlooking the park have prettier views but there are r...

I typically stay at IcelandAir Natura near the airport. But the problem there is that you are near the airport with no opportunity to get out and see Reykjavik.

Borg Hotel is on a park in central Reykjavik. Great location for getting around town.

The staff is extremely attentive and check in was fairly easy. They were even kind enough to hook me up with a dinner in a great place near the harbor on a busy summer Saturday night.

The rooms, though small, are neat and very clean. Even though downtown... I had a great nights sleep.

Very brief stop in Reykjavik so only one night here. It's a beautiful art deco hotel with gorgeous rooms and superb service. When we stayed the restaurant was closed for refurbishment but there are plenty of good restaurants nearby - highly recommend the Fish Market.

Room Tip: Suites are fabulous.

Arriving in Reykjavik at 7 o'clock in a sunday morning we had the pleasant surprise of the front desk that our room was available and we could enter the room in two hours (9 am) (without paying an extra daily, which was a sort of check in earlier): POSITIVE. The hotel is right in the city center, in a beautiful square and close to all major attractions of Reykjavik: POSITIVE. On the first day we chose to have the breakfast in a cafe indicated by the receptionist and it was wonderful, very typical, but with a high price of U$25. In the remaining days of our stay we had the breakfast at the hotel for the same price, but in the self service system: POSITIVE.
The TWO NEGATIVE aspects of our stay were the size of the room, considering we were two people with 4 bags in total. And also we stayed on a side of the hotel in front of a construction and so we woke up earlier every day around 9 am.
But I have no doubt I would stay at Hotel Borg again.

Let me get the negatives out of the way first:
Check in staff was very off hand. Functional, but unfriendly. The restaurant was closed (and we are foodies so we were looking forward to this one) and the room was smaller than a london hotel. Now with 2 large cases for a 2 week tour, this took some logistics to work around.
They did not clean the toilet downstairs either.
Positives:
Room was superbly appointed. Bed was really comfortable. The location was excellent.

We stayed here Spring 2014 when they were refurbishing the dining room. despite this they made us welcome and bent over backwards to arrange excursions and gave good advice as to where to go and places to eat. Thank you
