Hotel Borg in Reykjavik, Iceland, has been named by the Sunday Times Travel Magazine as one of the world’s 100 best hotels! Actually, this is comes as no surprise to me. After staying there recently I can safely say that it deservedly is ‘the’ place to stay in Reykjavik, situated near the national parliament on a grassy square and just a stones throw away from the main shopping street and nightlife.
Hotel Borg is a beautiful 4-star Art Deco hotel recently restored to its original Art Deco style and furnished to an extremely high standard with every detail noted to perfection from the door handles to the overall decor and ambience, I could not fault it. Even the breakfast room is a delight, as I strolled sleepily down to breakfast I was pleasantly surprised by a beautifully candle lit hallway leading to the old English style breakfast room. To further Hotel Borg’s appeal they have a beautifully designed restaurant Silfur that takes a modern stance to the Art Deco style and serves delicious French cuisine by an award-winning chef.
