Hard to sum up very many places with one word, but Hotel Borg does just that; FABULOUS!
Like stepping into vintage Hollywood with a modern flair, Borg has left no amenity behind while designing a boutique hotel around comfort and relaxation, even though its fully equipped for any business travel or lavish event. An easy 45 minute drive from the KEF Airport, Hotel Borg would be an exquisite location for your Iceland destination wedding group. With 56 stunning art deco rooms to fit every need, and an addition of 43 more in 2015 it’s idyllic for any group size. Golden Hall is a gorgeous reception space and is truly dreamy with its stunning use of lighting, elegant framed mirrors, and architectural touches that can accommodate 50-75 people for your unforgettable Iceland wedding reception!
Set perfectly in what you could call the “town square” of downtown Reykjavik, Borg is centrally located to tourist attractions, dining, shopping, and varied nightlife! Especially with Reykjavik’s convenient positioning between local culture and the nearby options of multiple whale watching and sea excursions, the Golden Circle, and the majority of southern Iceland’s most beautiful attractions are all within about a two hour drive. So Hotel Borg ‘s supreme location provides the ability to fit so much adventure into any length of stay!
With beautiful views of the city, harbor, and “Midnight Sun-sets” the hotel offers many different styles of amenities. As soon as you walk in, the lobby is warm and inviting, with lovely décor and lighting, and refreshingly friendly front desk staff that is available around the clock to help with every request. Hotel Borg is so helpful with assistance in the booking of any adventure big or small, and is a local excursion transfer spot for most activities that makes any outing super convenient.
The lovely room’s at Borg emit luxury with posh linens, spa style bath products, and functionally designed layouts that allow for the transition from work to play with the ultimate of ease for any traveler. Modern baths with heated marble floors, towel warmers, and deep soaking tubs that will pamper any bride, groom, or newlyweds! The lush robes and slippers will help in your relaxation for your big day. All of the rooms have lovely views, but the balcony room suites are a fantastic mini escape while planning your next big adventure or just remembering the highlights of your epic Iceland wedding day over a glass of wine.
Within Hotel Borg, the option of the restaurant is a daily or nightly option, with every day starting off with a fanciful spread for breakfast that should complement even the pickiest of palates. A full dinner service is offered nightly as well along with the most lavish of special event menu options for a welcome dinner or for your wedding feast! If a cocktail is what your taste buds are pleading for then Borg is connected to a great little watering hole, offering lovely craft cocktails, small bites, and because who doesn’t love fresh popped truffle popcorn! If you’re adventurous side wants to go out and explore beyond the hotel for libations or local cuisine then the options are limitless and all within the shortest of walking distance of this fabulous Iceland hotel.
Hands down one of the best and most beautiful hotel’s in Iceland to stay… Borg offers something for every discerning kind of taste. There’s nothing like popping a bottle of champagne on one of the beautiful balconies overlooking downtown and watching the fiery colors of sunset at the end of a long day of adventure!
