A Reykjavik icon. From its elegant facade to the Art Deco interiors, Hotel Borg combines sophisticated comfort, excellent service and a superb location. A stay at the Borg is a stay to remember.

The Concept

Heart of Reykjavík

This landmark hotel has watched over the scenic gardens and cafes of the parliament square for nearly a century. Set in the heart of Reykjavik, the Borg exudes an historic gravitas in keeping with its illustrious neighbours – the national cathedral and the parliament building. From its elegant facade to the Art Deco interiors, the Borg is the epitome of understated sophistication.

The hotel

With its elegant facade, and Art Deco interiors, Hotel Borg is a Reykjavik landmark. Its status as Iceland’s first and most-celebrated deluxe hotel has endured for nearly a century. It was the vision of wrestling champion Jóhannes Jósefsson, who made a fortune as a circus performer in America, where his dream of creating a luxury hotel in Iceland was conceived. Since it’s completion in 1930, it has been a magnet for everyone from heads of state to the famous and the glamorous, becoming entwined with Icelandic history along the way. The stories of the past live on in its walls, as it remains the epitome of understated sophistication.

Austurvöllur Square

The Borg watches over the scenic lawns, flowerbeds, and cafes of Iceland’s main square, Austurvöllur. The heart of the capital, the square is also home to two illustrious neighbors: the Icelandic parliament building and the nation’s oldest church, Domkirkjan. While history is in the air, in summer the square comes alive as locals gather to enjoy cafe life. In winter, the season is not complete until the Austurvöllur Christmas tree – an annual gift from Norway – is raised and lit, just across the way from Hotel Borg’s famous facade.
