Property Details

Opened in 1930, the historic Hotel Borg continues to bring its past confidently into the present. Recent revamps to the molding, room number plaques, elevator call buttons, and even the conical silver door hinges create an atmosphere reflective of their original grandeur and a luxurious Art Deco style in every corner of the hotel. All 56 rooms are smart and understated, outfitted in custom-made cream leather chairs, geometric headboards, globe lamps, and smooth coffee-colored parquet floors. Authenticity continues in the form of black and white photomurals depicting scenes of Reykjavík in the 1930s and period Philippe Stark bathrooms with heated marble floors and oversized deluge showers. While distinctively throwback in style, each room offers modern Bang & Olufsen technologies and high-speed Internet access, as well as crystal clear views over Austurvöllur square. For an extra touch of luxury, 14 superior rooms and suites and one two-floor Tower Suite possess top-floor city views, bespoke Hastens beds, and additional space for groups and families.

Hotel Borg’s Art Deco theme reaches its peak downstairs at the Borg Restaurant, a dining room with gilded walls and elaborate chandeliers evoking the flapper dresses and Lindy-hop dancers that once graced its halls. Today, the restaurant has recently undergone an extensive expansion and reopened under the leadership of chef Völundur Völundarson, whose Icelandic cuisine has placed his restaurants among the top in Reykjavík. Enjoy an ever-changing menu of fresh Icelandic fish, beef, and locally sourced vegetables, as well as an array of fine wines and handcrafted cocktails concocted with homemade syrups and bitters.

Hotel Borg stands on the beautiful square of Austurvöllur and has become known as one of Reykjavík’s most dignified landmarks. Its location across from Althingi places it within walking distance of all of the city’s best restaurants, businesses, art galleries, and specialty shops. This modern, forward-thinking society promises all of the qualities of a great city, as well as an immediate connection to nature’s wonders right at its doorstep. Whether soaking in a thermal bath, imbibing the lively culture of town, or setting out on an exploration of the Golden Circle, Hotel Borg is the perfect place to experience it all.
