Fodor's Review

In contrast to the ultramodern glass-and-chrome architecture around Reykjavík, the Borg—the city's oldest hotel—is pure 1930s art deco, from the black marble statues in the entryway to the brass-and-wood railing on the stairs to the square little coffee cups in the rooms. Period black-and-white bathrooms are well equipped, with Philippe Starck fittings and heated marble floors; some rooms have whirlpool baths. All rooms have fluffy down comforters, black-and-white prints (some antique), coffee machines, and CD players. Perhaps the most enticing aspect of the Borg is its location, right in the heart of the city, overlooking Austurvöllur Square and close to Parliament House and various restaurants. The in-house Borg restaurant offers a good selection of Icelandic food in a glamorous setting.
