Hotel Borg

4* out of 5 stars

For style and luxury in the heart of Reykjavik, look no further than Hotel Borg. An rather splendid exterior façade highlights the hotel’s status as a historic city landmark. Interiors meanwhile, all marble floors, deco wallpaper and neoclassical sculptures, add a sense of glam to match the grand architecture, while low-slung Edison bulbs, chesterfield banquets and glazed tiling gives restaurant areas a cool, modern edge. The atmosphere is at once stimulating and laid back. And for those looking to add even more relaxation to their Iceland holiday, Hotel Borg boasts a superb spa and fitness room. In this sanctuary of calm and quiet, a hot tub, steam bath, sauna, relaxation area and fitness room join signature spa treatments to provide the ultimate tune-up for mind, body and soul.

Hotel Borg Location

At Hotel Borg, your holiday to Reykjavik finds a handy HQ for the city’s main cultural, shopping and dining venues. Harpa Concert hall, Laugavegur shopping street, Hallgrimskirkja Church, City Hall, and the national gallery & museum are all in the vicinity, while Austurvollur Park and Reykjavik cathedral are just next door. Step out for the day and stroll between the vibrant cafes and restaurants in this historic neighbourhood of Reykjavik; the streets can be narrow here though, so leave the hire-car at a nearby multi storey car park or metre bay.

The food at Hotel Borg

In a bit of a coup for the Iceland restaurant scene, Hotel Borg has landed an exclusive franchise with Jamie’s Italian, the popular restaurant chain from celeb chef Jamie Oliver. Housed in the hotel’s impressive Golden Hall (Gyllti Salurinn) with its distinctive oval ceiling mural, this delightful space stays true to both Hotel Borg’s sense of occasion and Jamie’s passion for authentic Mediterranean cooking. Savour expertly prepared antipasti, pasta dishes, salads, grills and pizza. Bellissimo.
