Hotel Borg by Keahotels

The Hotel Borg is where you want to stay if you’re in town for business or generally interested in executive style accommodations. Still only a short walk to the more tourist locales, the Hotel Borg is across the main road and serenely perched at the foot of Reykjavik’s business and political district. Overlooking the popular public square Austurvollur, you will have a front row seat to the Parliament house Althingi, city hall, the offices of the cabinet, and Domkirkjan, the Reykjavik Cathedral while being surrounded by a near endless palate of options for international food and drink.

Built in 1930, the Hotel Borg is refined and dignified in style. Recently renovated to refresh the original decor inside and out, the restored Art Deco style exudes elegance and class. Much of Reykjavik’s appeal can be classified as “folksy” or “old-world”. After touring the island, exploring the villages, and experiencing the rural charm of Iceland’s environment, return to the Hotel Borg and taste sophistication and refinement amid accommodations suited for celebrities and heads of state.

Your room at Hotel Borg is equally impressive in design and comfort. 92 rooms dedicated to catering to your needs and ensuring your satisfying stay. Standard Single, Double, and Twin rooms are neatly decorated and provide the clean fresh start to your mornings you expect in a well designed room. The Superior and Deluxe rooms offer a bit more space to spread out if you so desired. In addition to the 92 rooms there are six suites available. The addition of a comfortable seating area will give you the luxury of a stately sitting room in your suite.

The 99th room is the Tower Suite. A two story suite with one, two or three optional bedrooms downstairs and an imposing private panoramic window sitting room upstairs. You can entertain guests in your tower sitting parlor overlooking downtown Reykjavik. All rooms, from Standard Single to the Tower Suite have new smart-televisions, wifi, Bluetooth speakers, Nespresso machines and minibars. The bathrobe, slippers and heated bathroom floors will guarantee you feel at home even while on travel.

Online reviews focused on the clean and fastidious nature of the staff, the grounds and the hotel design itself. Viewed as an escape from the artsy side of Reykjavik and a chance to see the classical side of the capitol as well. Some reviewers warn that the hotel can be a little pricey, but in reviewing the fares, many travel sites offer lower cost rooms at Hotel Borg.
