From volcanoes and glaciers to black beaches, geothermal pools and the Northern Lights, Iceland is one of the world’s wildest, weirdest destinations. A paradise for adventurous travellers.
This 58-room art deco gem is one of Reykjavik’s most sophisticated and glamorous hotels.
Features include parquet floors, twinkling chandeliers and the best mod cons around – Philippe Starck fittings, Bang and Olufsen flatscreen TVs and Hastens beds in large rooms decorated in chocolate and maroon.
The hotel’s restaurant serves up wonderful local produce with a twist, with popping candy and dry ice pepping up exquisite desserts.
It’s elegant and upmarket, and unsurprisingly popular with the older end of the market. Service is perfect and a concierge can book everything you need in advance or during your stay.
It’s also in a great location beside Reykjavik’s key green space.
Hotel Borg faces Austurvollur square, a patch of green in front of the parliament and cathedral with cafés and bars around it. It’s a lovely spot in the summer and popular with locals. (Try for a room overlooking the square have the best views; those at the back overlook a busy road).
Behind the square is the town hall and a large pond and park, where children play. The harbour and city’s art galleries are very close by. The old harbour is only a short walk away, so you’re well placed for early-morning trips to see whales and dolphins in season.
