About Hotel Borg

Positive Reviews

Location cannot be faulted

Since Borg is right on the main parliament square, this puts it right in the beating heart of Reykjavik, within walking distance of the city’s main attractions and well-placed for restaurants and nightlife.

Art Deco ambience

The elegantly appointed interior has been elegantly renovated to fit the Art Deco heritage and guests have found it charming, cosy and full of character.

Opulent comfort with a view

You will find the beds to be plush and comfortable, the bathrooms divine, the decor just as fine as that found in the lobby, and the views out over the city just as lovely.

The right demeanour

Guests have found the staff to be professional, courteous and fantastic at pointing out where to go to best enjoy your visit to Reykjavik.

Negative Reviews


The location, pedigree and design aesthetic of Borg means that its price is always going to be an issue for some, but a handful of guests have also found the breakfasts to be expensive for the quality received.

Construction noise of late

Due to the construction going on next door of a new wing of the hotel, a few guests have experience some noise, but with the works expected to be finished in May 2015, this should be only a temporary issue Other guests have in fact remarked on the quality of sound-proofing.

Lighting in rooms poor

Several people staying at Borg have found the lighting in bedrooms too dim for their liking, making it hard to read without sitting close to the desk.
