Hótel Borg, Reykjavik, Iceland
When you’re visiting somewhere as, well, cool (if you’ll
pardon the pun) as Reykjavik, you want your base to be as epic as its
surrounds. And the boutique Hótel Borg (the city’s first luxury hotel, built in
the 1930s) definitely does not disappoint.
It puts you in prime position to get
acquainted with the city’s greatest landmarks (in fact the hotel itself is one
of them); the décor effortlessly combines lovingly restored period detail with
Art Deco design and 21st-century brilliance; the spa has something for
everyone; and the exquisite Icelandic cuisine at the oh-so-elegant Borg Restaurant
incorporates the best seafood in the city.
