Lonely Planet review
The city’s most historic hotel was completely overhauled in 2007. Super-smart beige, black, and cream decor, parquet floors, leather headboards and flatscreen Bang & Olufsen TVs are now standard throughout, lending the hotel an elegant (if rather masculine) feel. It may have lost some of its art deco charm, but thankfully it’s retained the enormous showerheads in its bathrooms. Quadruple-glazed windows cut down on drunken weekend street noise.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Borg and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Reykjavík.
