Borg Hotel

The Borg Hotel is an elegant 1930s’ location decorated in art-deco style – think long, winding staircases, period bathrooms and individually styled rooms.

Breakfast is served in the main dining room, just off the lobby. The buffet includes a great selection of continental options, as well as Icelandic specialities.

In the evening, the hotel’s small bar and lounge area is the ideal place to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing.

Whether you’re stopping at the hotel for a whistle-stop tour of Reykjavik or staying for a week’s worth of exploring, you’ll get two excursions included as part of your holiday to Iceland.

Overview of Reykjavik

Iceland is renowned for its natural wonders. Known as ‘the land of fire and ice’, it’s a country of great contrasts and a place where every vista is truly stunning.

The capital city of Reykjavik is bustling and lively. It’s filled with restaurants, shops and spas, and it also has a music and arts scene that’s very popular with younger visitors. In the city centre surrounding the Borg Hotel, sleek buildings sit alongside classic architecture.

Things to do in Reykjavik

The history of Iceland is a big focus in Reykjavik, too. There are plenty of museums that showcase its Viking heritage, including the National Museum of Iceland and the Maritime Museum. If you’re more of an art enthusiast, head to the Reykjavik Museum of Photography.

In the evening, thumping bars come alive and many of these keep the party going until the sun comes back up! You’ll love chatting to the friendly locals who always have a recommendation. With its impressive natural sights and beautiful attractions, Reykjavik is a city that will bring a smile to your face.
