Right in the middle of the older part of the city, this makes a great base to explore from. It's low key Art Deco in style. Rooms are very comfortable. Staff are, as usual for Iceland, very helpful and efficient. Breakfast was good and although we didn't have dinner here the restaurant looked very good. Would definitely recommend and definitely...

We spent four nights at Hotel Borg in the beginning of January 2016. Fantastic location at the central square oppposite the parliament. Nice staff, standard room overlooking the backyard. Nice breakfast with all you needed: tea, coffee, juice, milk, skýr, cereals, meat, cheeses, jam, bacon, eggs, sausages and bread. The only small thing to complain about was the fact that...

This is a fabulous hotel to stay at in Reykjavik. My husband and I came here on an Expedia deal for our first wedding anniversary. We fell in love with this city, the hotel and the people.

We booked the hotel for the new year and it was lovely. The hotel is located right in the middle of the city with easy access to almost everything. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was spacious with a great shower. Restaurant is top notch, even for Reykjavik.

Great location, stylish hotel, helpful staff. We had a suite which I was expecting more from given the price. No parking. And beds are old. Breakfast was OK but no more than that. The bar which they own next door was very nice, good food too.

We absolutely loved our stay at Hotel Borg. We were in room 411 which had a balcony overlooking the square. The staff were friendly and incredibly helpful. We had breakfast in the hotel which was good although a bit pricey. I would definitely stay here again if we go back to Iceland.

We stayed our last night in the city at this hotel. The hotel is centrally located, so you can walk to everything. Staff is very friendly and rooms are clean. The hotel also has a nice spa and gym. Only downside is there is no parking or valet, so you have to find street parking.
