Recently announced as Iceland leading hotel in the World Travel Awards of 2015. I found this hotel in a travel brochure and just loved the look of it. I loved the art deco theme that I found. The Hotel Borg was the city’s first luxury hotel—and it’s still the most beloved. Jóhannes Jósefsson, a native Icelander who worked in the United States as a circus strongman, returned to his native country with dreams of building Iceland’s first four-star property. The elegant hotel, which opened in 1930, hews to a black, white, and silver palette, an Art Deco gem in the very centre of the city. And because this is Scandinavia, don’t look for over-the-top glitz here, the glamour is in the details, like the sleek silver door handles and the dainty chime the elevator makes instead of a beep. It was such a lovely place to stay at and the staff were amazing. They could not help us enough and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay somewhere special in Reykjavik.
Our room was a superior king size and was very nice. The bed linen was Egyptian cotton and my husband had commented how well he slept here. I would recommend and return here myself in a heart beat.
