After enjoying our first 3 nights in Reykjavik at Radisson Blu 1919, we walk less than 2 blocks to our next hotel, Hotel Borg, for the remaining 2 nights of our stay in Iceland. We walk over to Hotel Borg early Friday morning before our full-day tour begins with Super Jeep at 8:30am. Before my trip to Iceland, I know that I wanted to stay at Radisson Blu 1919 and Hotel Borg because after thorough research coupled with client feedback, it was clear that both properties were the premier and most luxurious hotels in the city. With that said, it was also quite obvious that Hotel Borg was the higher end hotel and right behind it was the Radisson Blue 1919. Needless to say, Hotel Borg’s customer service and beautiful, newly renovated guest rooms and public spaces did not disappoint.
Overall, I would give my stay a 7.5 out of 10. Hotel Borg is more expensive than Radisson Blu 1919 and given the noise issues I experienced, I can’t give my stay higher than a 7.5. Now…with that said, I would still recommend this property to clients ahead of Radisson Blu 1919 but only after I contact the hotel and they guarantee the room is located on a high floor and facing the front of the building, so you wouldn’t hear the noise from the night club. If the hotel is unable to guarantee this request…then I would not be able to recommend it.
