First day in Reykjavik

A travel blog entry by mikerorke


We arrived on a very dark November morning. Luckily Mike arranged for a driver and I had inquired about early check in at Hotel Borg, so soon we were taking a morning nap in our beautiful room in downtown Reykjavik. We spent the day walking around, getting a little more familiar with the city and the lovely Icelanders. Will be buying some of their amazing sweaters!

Stopover med SPA

Vi er fremme pĺ Island, som har strĺlende sol idag. Ble sendt til et annet hotel nĺr vi ankom idag tidlig.
Til Hotel Borg, midt i sentrum. Noe vi ble veldig leie oss for.

Reykjavik minner mye pĺ Kardemommeby, Koslig og fredelig her. Vi er ganske trřtte da vi bokstaveligtalt flřy rett gjennom natten.

Derfor har vi slappet …

Day 23 Back to Reykjavic

... over 50 minutes on the trip to Reykjavik. We finally arrive in Reykjavik and navigate our way to the rental car company. It must be said at this point that the navigation around Iceland has been carried out exclusively by Patsy and she has done a remarkable job. Partly with the car GPS but with solid support from the iPhone Google Maps App, her skills have been first class. We hand over the car, totally unscathed after almost 2,500 kilometres, and are driven by the hire car company ...

No TV in the TV

... girl was keen enough to point us to the gas station 200 meters further down the road. “Sometimes they show football.” Sometimes was good. If today was one of those some then we would be okay. I entered the station, looked around to see a TV hanging on the wall and asked the clerk if it was possible to watch the game and she answered with a firm yes. There we were, my parents and I, in the middle of nowhere watching Netherlands – Chile together with ...

A Stressful Day

A travel blog entry by prinret


... had scheduled not only our ship, but two additional large cruise ships into the port at the same time, all debarking passengers to the airport. To handle the traffic buses had been commandeered from as far away as Germany but things were chaotic. In addition it was a very warm day to be standing in line for such a long time. Even when aboard the bus, the traffic was very heavy just getting out of the port authority. It took us ...

    Great Choice


    I was in town for the Reychavik music festival where virtually the entire population of Iceland comes into town for a weekend of music and drinking. Couldn't imagine a better location than right on the square. We had a great room overlooking everything that was going on in the late hours of the night. The complimentary breakfast was perfect and the staff very helpful with suggestions and arranging excusions for us. I highly recommend this place.

    Worth every $


    Yes, it's expensive. Get over it. Iceland is expensive. Spend the xtra $$, it's worth it. Wonderful location. Very helpful and pleasant staff. Great comfy beds. I had friends staying at the hotel Klopp and hotel Skailbred this week, and let me tell you the rooms where horrible in both. How these hotels got 4 star ratings I'll never know. The Hotel Borg is truely a 4 star property.

    We were very pleased....


    We stayed at Hotel Borg for four nights in April (definitely not the high season). We got a good rate through hotels and when I corresponded with the Borg, they suggested that both hotels and expedia often have lower rates than they give themselves.

    Big room, superb location


    We stayed at the Borg for two nights at the end of January, and found it to be ideally placed in the centre of Reykjavik. It's next door to an excellent bar (Kaffibrennslan, I think) and within a minute or two's walk of many other bars. Central Reykjavik is quite compact, so many of the sights are within a reasonably short and easy walk/drive. The main shopping streets are a couple of hundred metres away, and the main road which connects up to the rest of the island is nearby but unobtrusive.

    Choose your room carefully


    We stayed in the Borg for 3 nights during mid December and generally enjoyed our stay. However, a serious word of warning - avoid rooms at the front of the hotel. We were on the second floor overlooking the central square - this was fantastic in the day but dreadful at night as drunken locals and tourists kept us up until about 4am - there is no double glazing! We moved to a room at the back of the hotel and found it much better

    Fantastic room, great service


    My husband and I spent our honeymoon in the Tower Suite at the Hotel Borg. The room, views and service were fantastic. It wasn't cheap, but Iceland isn't cheap, but we felt that it was great value and had the trip of a lifetime.

    Nice Hotel, however watch events around city


    First time visit to Iceland after years of dreaming. Booked the Tower Suite, which is supposed to be one of the best rooms in Iceland and it was. However, since all flights from the US were overnight, we arrived at the hotel around 8:00am and the room was not available for a few hours. Since the hotel requires flight numbers and arrival times, there is no excuse for not having a (any) room available to freshen up.

    A step back in time


    This hotel is small but has great character, just like the people of Iceland. You will find yourself pampered as in days gone past. The beds have down pillows and down comforters, there is beautiful art gracing the walls, a hidden wet bar with coffee and pot and a nice selection of teas. All these rooms are suites, they have a sitting area that has overstuffed couch and chairs, of course a bathroom - this is very separate from the rest of the room but still in your room with a shower head that is like showering under a soft summer rain, a table to dine at or play cribbage. a CD player, and t.v. if so inclined, the reception area has a large selection of DVD's for your viewing pleasure. The view I found most pleasurable was the one directly outside our room. We overlooked the center square in front of the building. Our room was on the second floor with four garden windows overlooking the square. All sets of windows opened allowing us to lean out to photograph the street we lived on for 5 days. This is by far the nicest accomodations I have ever had, mostly because I feel more comfortable in intimate surroundings and do not require alot of outside stimuli. the Borg is located a short walk away from the business district of shopping if again you are so inclined. better yet it is near a lake that had swans and geese returning for the spring, we watched small children feeding these beautiful birds. you are a short walk away fom the bay, which on a nice day is well worth the stroll. we had no problem getting around on foot, in fact we never did need transportation except when our tour picked us up to experience the "blue lagoon" which I highly recommend. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Borg or Iceland, it is an amazing experience and I would love to go back again, soon. you can not go wrong with the accommodations of this lovely hotel, take a step back in time and live the history of Iceland.

    Yum, yum, yum


    I had one night at the Borg as a treat, and never ever wanted to leave.

    Honeymooned at the Borg


    We were told by Icelandair that since it was our honeymoon, we should stay at the Hotel Borg, since it was the nicest in the City. It was a great hotel. . . really classic, high ceilings and an amazing view from our third floor room. There were huge windows everwhere. Our bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept on. Scandanavian bedding is like sleeping on a cloud. The hotel is in the center of Reykjavik, so it is walking distance to everything. They also offer great excursions into the country. Breakfast wasn't great. . sort of unorganized, but tasted great when we finally ate. The bathroom was amazing! A huge tub with a rain-like shower. . .and in Iceland you never ever run out of pure, unpolutted hot water. I would stay at the Borg again in a heartbeat. I love Iceland, as it has so much to offer. An amazing country and a romantic honeymoon on top of the world!
