Hotel Borg is Reykjavik most expensive hotel and offers a great 56-room hotel with classical art deco design. My experience started with a warm Icelandic welcome at check in, after a small talk I was given the key, but not escorted to room. I stayed in a very impressive suite with two Bang&Olufsen Tv’s, comfortable bed, complimentary high speed internet and a separate shower from the bathtub. Hotel Borg recently won an award at World Travel Awards for Iceland’s best hotel and as I really liked Hotel 101, I was excited to see how good the service could be here.
After my stay it’s easy to conclude the stay is overall good. In some situations the service was a little slow, like at check out where I waited 5 minutes, but otherwise I was impressed with the attitude of the staff. Especially, the restaurant manager of Borg Restaurant, located just next to the lobby, where I had a great dining experience. You can find my video and review of it on YouTube.
The stay ended with a great breakfast. High quality items in the buffet and kind, charming service. The bottom line is that Hotel Borg is one of Reykjavik’s best hotels and it depends on your preference. I like both this classical hotel and the design hotel, Hotel 101 and it’s really hard to pick a winner. In my book they are both winners and great experiences.
My opinion: Great experience.
