Good things happen when you least expect them, and certainly no one would have expected that a hotel designed by an Icelandic wrestler in the 1930’s would become one of Reykjavik’s most charismatic hotels. Art Deco to its core, Hotel Borg is enduringly elegant and proudly stands next to Parliament and the National Cathedral.

The 56 individually designed rooms have made a few concessions to the passing of time- flat screen televisions, sound systems, gigantic shower heads- but the geometric headboards and parquet floors ensure that the hotel retains its authentic charm. Photographs from Reykjavik's history adorn the walls and offer an insight into the city's rich past.

The hotel's Borg Restaurant provides a gentle introduction to some of Iceland's more adventurous delicacies- goose, eel and reindeer- whilst also serving a delectable range of cocktails.
