"Extraordinary hotel, but can be very noisy."
Hotel Borg is in a great location, with many shops and restaurants very close by. The only problem is that at night it is very noisy because of the bar, and then first thing in the morning there is cleaning which can be very quite loud.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommended for tourists"
We are recently retired couple - Hotel Borg was excellent. The art deco interior is impeccably maintained. The staff were friendly and truly helpful, giving good advice and assistance. The location, 3 blocks from the sea, is at the heart of the old downtown; handy to much you will want to visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Big thank you to the staff"
Special thank you, especially to Eva. Staff was very helpful, location aa central aa you can get. Room was a single so small but very comfortable. I would stay again and recommend to other travelers.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in Central Reykjavik"
I recently visited Reykjavik on personal vacation and selected Hotel Borg based on location, price and other reader reviews. I was very pleased with the overall hotel offerings and especially appreciated the friendly and helpful demeanor of the front desk staff. Everything I wanted to visit was within walking distance or accessible through pickup by […] the various tour companies. My hotel room was smaller in nature (similar to most European singles), but the amenities were fine, the bed was comfortable and the free WiFi worked at all times. My only minor complaint is that the breakfast price (not included with the room rate) is too high for my preferences, so just be aware before going in and then being surprised later. As a female traveling alone on this trip, I did a lot of research in advance to ensure I was selecting a hotel where I would feel safe and comfortable while on my vacation. I would definitely stay at this hotel again on a future trip to Reykjavik. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice Hotel and good service... Very good location! Had a feel of a scary movie inside though lolGenuine Expedia guest review
Would definitely stay here again. My husband and I arrived early in the morning and our room was ready! It was a quick check-in and the room was great. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was great too with the rain shower. Definitely better than I expected. The only complaint is how expensive the breakfast was. 25 euro per person was pretty […] steep and as we were up early for tours there were no other places open to get coffee and something quick to eat so we were forced to eat breakfast at the hotel. I was a little skeptical when booking the hotel since many reviewers complained about the noise at night and I am a pretty light sleeper. There was some noise but not enough to keep me up at night or wake me up. I would love to visit Iceland again and I would choose Hotel Borg again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy Beds, great shower and lovely staff"
Comfy beds, a great shower and lovely staff... the title says it all. What else could you ask for from a hotel? This one has the bonus of being located right in the centre of town, so there are plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes nearby. All of the members of staff we met were very helpful and polite. We stayed twice and both times the rooms were […] spotless. We'll be back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at various other hotels in Reykjavik in the past but this was by far the best experience, a truly wonderful hotel, great staff, beautiful rooms and amazing location. Just a couple points worth mentioning...I prefer the old part / original section of the hotel...I found the new section a little too noisy ...no carpets on the floor to absorb […] the sound of guests leaving early in the morning or chatting in the corridor....moved to room 411....carpeted main staircase outside room, secondary door to eliminate noise and outside balcony, perfect!! the other point, I found breakfast a little limited and disappointing for a hotel of this standard. Having said that, please do not hesitate to book this lovely hotel...I guarantee you will not be disappointed!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent hotel. Fantastic stay."
Very clean and comfortable hotel. Located in the old section of the city. very close to the parliament building, harbour, shops and restaurants. There is a night club/bar close by the hotel which is very noisy from 12 midnight until 4.30am on a Friday and Saturday night but this did not bother us. I took some ear plugs and never heard a thing. Hotel […] restaurant food is excellent. Can recommend highly to have a meal there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Super Hotel in an excellent location"
Hotel Borg is a smart exclusive hotel, built in the Art Deco style, perfectly situated in the centre of Reykjavik. The Reception Staff were very knowledgeable and happy to find out if our tour company would be running its Northern Lights tour each evening, book shuttle busses, help us find a great restaurant etc. We ate in the Hotel Restaurant one evening […] where the food, service and ambiance were excellent and no more expensive than the rest of Reykjavik. The only small gripe was that our room was incredibly hot with no obvious way of turning the thermostat down. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Art Deco hotel !"
The decoration (Art Deco) is just perfect - even the door and window hinges! We had the opportunity to stay in a suite - Bang & Olufssen TVs and audio equipment! The bathroom also had a touch of Philippe Starck -every detail (lights etc,) was perfect. Excellent restaurant!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Borg, resistance is futile."
Nice hotel, friendly helpfull staff. Good restaurant and nice bar attached to the hotel. Great central location in quiet part of town. Wouold use again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic for couples"
Fantastic hotel, wonderful location and excellent staff, great for a romantic break. However, parquet floors can result in unacceptable noise if inconsiderate guests in rooms above do not avail themselves of the complimentary slippers and insist on walking around in high heeled shoes at night and dragging furniture around in the early hours of the morning, […] ear-plugs are a must! Sadly the restaurant was closed for refurbishment throughout our stay, we were not warned of this as we feel we should have been and the works started early and continued late into the evening. Thankfully, room was excellent, bathrooms amazing with the most wonderful showers and the staff were so helpful, would recommend Cafe Paris opposite for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.

"Very comfortable and right in the centre"
Hotel Borg is in a lovely square right in the centre of Reykjavik. The rooms are fabulous, very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Bathrobes, slippers, wifi, minibar, toilettries etc... The restaurant was closed due to renovations so unfortunately we couldn't try the food which apparently is superb, the bar staff were very friendly but the receptionists […] left a lot to be desired (I may be a bit picky as I work in the same industry). Overall it was a pleasant stay and I would definitely recommend. I'd also recommend Cafe Paris which is directly across the square, lovely food and good atmosphere.

"Beautiful for couples"
This hotel is as good as it looks online. Beautifully styled in Art Deco furnishings and decor it is very impressive. We had a king size room which was exactly that, plenty of room to move about, HUGE bed with separate duvets - a must with a bed so huge! The beds are comfy, as where the pillows. The windows are triple glazed but we were still able […] to open them should we have wished. The room was clean and warm. The staff bent over backwards for us. I had arranged for a surprise bottle of champagne which they were very subtle about on our arrival and they then went out of their way to confirm our tour bookings and then called around searching for my camera tripod which I left in a tour van. They managed to locate it and have it returned back to the hotel for me. This Hotel is an excellent base for travelling around Reykjavik and you are just opposite the Cathedral and Parliament buildings and the best bar ever is only over the road (Micro bar - A MUST for any real ale drinkers) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel in excellent location"
A lovely place with great staff. Not a noisy place at all. The only thing we could improve is more storeage in the rooms. There is only a tiny wardrobe and a big room like this could take a chest of draws. Highly recommended though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel let down by the kitchen"
The hotel is nicely appointed rooms are very good and the beds very comfortable. Its very central. It is not a cheap hotel so if you are on a budget better to choose another hotel. The kitchen lets the hotel down and at Euros 18 the buffet breakfast is silly price for nothing special. We were told to avoid the restaurent. Attached to the hotel is the […] Icelandic bar which is good basic bar for a beer ....the hot food whilst adequate was always served coldish so a good quality burger is served luke warm with cold oily potatoe strings...no thanks! Part of the problem is that they have not as yet discovered plate warmers. Again the food is very overpriced in this bar. We were able to eat out at quality restaurents so our stay was I would say very good indeed ...we have stayed before and will stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Great Treat for Couples"
Lovely big room, very stylish. Not much wardrobe/drawer space so spent the holiday living out of suitcases but there's that much floor space that it didn't really matter. We had a room at the back of the hotel, which didn't have a great view but had little, if any, street noise. The reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast […] buffet in the restaurant is plentiful and fairly typical of Icelandic hotel breakfast, so won't disappoint, but is quite expensive. We didn't book B&B so had the option of going out to cafes. We didn't eat dinner in the restaurant, but did look at the menu, which looked great and was nowhere near as expensive as the cost of breakfast lead us to believe - in fact, prices were very comparable with other popular restaurants. The bar next door, The Icelandic Bar, is associated with the hotel (I believe# - it's well worth a visit or two - a very pleasing collection of bottled beers #my favourite was the Einstock White Beer) and has a great and adventurous menu. We ate there, great food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent High Class Option"
If you found a similarly located top quality hotel in any other major city in Europe, you would pay a lot more - and not get a fantastic art deco hotel. The restaurant is excellent as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice for couple and business"
Very well located, reception staff friendly and helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
The quadruple double glazed windows work as keeping the sounds of the night revellors out of the room. We were very pleased with the excellent location, allowing site seeing on foot with the limited we had. I liked the style of the redecoration it was tasteful but not loud. The access lift is not too good. It is tucked in a corner between the kitchen […] and the cafe/bar so rather pungent at times. Room very clean and the meal we had in the restaurant was good Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located in the center of Reykjavik"
Iceland is unique. Extremely clean. No air pollution.No water polution. But lauguage is very difficult. Usually I can guess at times what a foreign word means. Could not do it in Iceland. Fortunately most people speak english as a second language . I would highly recommend Iceland mainly in the shoulder season as high season results in Reykjavik being […] fully booked.

"Hotel Borg, Reykjavik - in need of a polish"
I was excited to stay at the Borg, as I have a love of art deco and historical inns. The hotel has retained much of its original charm, and my room was very comfortable. However, the finishes were quite tired, for example chips in the paint and worn tiles in the bathroom, ratty edges on the towels. The hotel staff were competent, but stiff, although […] I was quite happy to be able to check in early, and stash my skis in a stoage room. I liked that there were artifacts on display from the hotel's past and from the original owner. The location of the hotel is fantastic, near to downtown Reykjavik and the waterfront, and overlooking a park. Breakfast was an option, although it was rather steep. My biggest beef with Borg was that I felt as though my room was in the maid's quarters. It was in a group of four rooms that was seperate from the other guest rooms, and could only be accessed by a service elevator. Overall, Hotel Borg was fine. It just needs a little more polish around the edges to restore it to its glory. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good hotel in central location. It is convenient a bit noisy at night. Nice size room, very clean. However, breakfast was disappointing. There are nice pub and cafe around the hotel, so you should eat out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Borg Reykjevik"
We enjoyed our 3 night stay in Hotel Borg (20th Feb-23rd) the staff were very helpful nothing was too much trouble all excursions and transportation were booked with ease, the Hotel was spotlessly clean the room and the location was very central. I would recommend this Hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Asked for an extra bed and the hotel gave us two rooms without extra charge. Breakfast was included in price and that was a treat. They even made us lunchboxes to go for our daytrip on a monster truck - even without any extra charge! Especially helpful was the night receptionist who arranged for most of our extras and bookings. Yes, if you are planning […] for a quiet and harmonious travel to Reykjavik remember that this hotel is directly in centrum with the noise that typically comes with this (and rather book something not directly in centrum). However, I was not bothered by this as the perques from stying downtown typically outweigth the noise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Classy hotel in the heart of Reykjavik"
We wanted comfort and also to be centrally located and we were not disapointed. The hotel was beautifully decorated and the space in the room was fabulous. The bed was enormous and certainly bigger than what I would say is king size and very comfortable. Minibar expensive, but then drinks generally are in Iceland. We were right next to a number of […] bars and resturants and the square was quite lively in the evenings. Some noise at night, but not to the extent that it ruined any sleep. Tourist information and main shopping street only 3-5 minutes walk away. Being a keen runner, I also had some great runs setting out from the hotel - along the coast and through the city, so did not mind that the hotel did not have any leisure facilities. Bus station is about 10-15 min walk from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good central hotel - just watch out for the pub stragglers who can be a little loud at closing tim"
Hotel was of high standard and close to harbour. Lots of excellent restaurants and cafes nearby. Although it didn't keep me awake too much, the cathedral clock strikes every fifteen minutes. If you're not a night owl try and have lights out by midnight, that way you'll be fast asleep by the time the clubs n pubs close. Staff very helpful and are able […] to help book trips for you.

"Central location in Reykjavik"
The hotel itself was lovely. We were upgraded to a deluxe room upon check-in, which was a nice touch. The room was spacious, clean and well decorated. The location is very central, however, if you sleep with the windows open, you will hear noise from the late-night revellers as there are lots of bars and restaurants around. Whilst we didn't dine in […] the hotel, there are plenty to choose from in terms of dining options and bars in the area and within walking distance. We had a rental car and although the hotel has no parking, there are plenty of paid street parking available all over Reykjavik. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable hotel, ideal location, great experiences"
Iceland just seems to work. Everywhere we went, the arrangements were impeccable and the locals were really friendly. Indeed, they couldn't do enough to make our short break there enjoyable and comfortable. The scenery was spectacular, the food excellent and we would recommend the Hotel Borg to anyone - a modern, simplified take on Art Deco style; also […] very conveniently located. This is not a country for travellers wishing to view the world on the cheap but we came away feeling we had had value for money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is located right in the city centre of Reykjavik. Very good service in reception and the room was cleaned good every day.

"Snyggt, lagom stort designhotell med bästa läge"
Fräscha rum med högt i tak, bra standard och bekvämlighet samt rena och välutrustade badrum. Fin service med morgonrockar på rummet och bekväma sängar. Hotellet ligger med bästa, mest centrala läget i Reykjavik och jag rekommenderar hotellet för den som har en kort visit i staden pga av närheten till allt. Det jag var mindre nöjd med var frukostbuffén […] som var av lite enklare sort samt att rummet var lite väl uppvärmt vid ankomst. Båda dessa problem kan enkelt lösas, många möjligheter till frukost runt hörnet och öppna fönstret för vädring! :-) Kollegorna som bodde på mer etablerade hotellkedjor tittade avundsjukt på hotell Borgs snygga entré. Väl värt ett besök och vi blev väl omhändertagna. Tyvärr provade vi inte restaurangen, men köksmästaren har gjort minst en fin bok som vittnar om höga ambitioner. Jag skulle välja hotellet igen.

Hotel Borg er et bra hotell som ligger midt i Reykjavik. Standarden er høy, men frokostbuffeten er helt grei. Gratis WiFi i hele hotellet er et pluss...et minus er at det ikke er noe treningsrom. Vennlig og hjelpsomt personell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
市内中心部にあり、とても便利な場所です。ホテル従業員のマナーや接客も良く、全体的には合格点以上です。但し、とても残念なのが、同じ建物の１Fにライブハウスがあり、週末は深夜４時までガンガンライブをやっています。僕の部屋は２Fで直接的に音と振動が伝わって来て寝ることが出来ませんでした。部屋のチェンジを頼みましたが、満室で出来ず、また、ホテルの案内では最初は浴室付きと書いて有りましたが、現実にはSGLはオールシャワーでした。それが残念です。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
