Hotel | At this hotel you’ll find true luxury right in the heart of Reykjavík. The hotel is a well-known landmark in town that towers over Austurvöllur Park, perfectly located close to restaurants, cafés, museums and shops. The hotel is decorated in an Art Deco style.

An imposing historic landmark in the perfect location
Hotel Borg is located right in the part of Reykjavík that most people consider to be the best. Guests who stay here will be centrally located right by Austurvöllur Park, and just across the way from the Althing which is the Icelandic parliament. The best restaurants, cafés, shops and cultural experiences that the city has to offer are all within walking distance.

The hotel was built between 1928–1930 by Jóhannes Jósefsson, who was a well-known wrestler and adventurer. Jósefsson competed in the Olympic Games in 1908 and travelled to America with the Barnum & Baileys Circus, before then returning to Iceland in 1927 with the dream of building a luxury hotel worthy of international dignitaries. And he certainly succeeded, as Hotel Borg simply exudes 1920s luxury with its classic Art Deco style.

The hotel has a spa and a fitness centre with a hot tub, sauna and steam room. You can even book yourself a massage to unwind after a day of adventure, or why not recharge your batteries with a delicious meal at Jamie’s Italian? The restaurant is designed to combine Italian flair with the hotel’s style and has become well known for its oval-shaped ceiling mural which creates a truly unique atmosphere.

”Kanonfint hotell med fantastiskt läge. Franska brasseriet i parken på hörnet intill var toppen för lunch i solen.”
