Mondays In Iceland - #6 in a Series
Our room in the Hotel Borg. How we managed to end up there is still beyond me. Usually these rooms are $400+ per night. I think they got our package mixed up (we had been seated in first-class on the flight over!) The interior design let us know right away that this was no Motel 6. No Ikea furniture, (but there was an heirloom walnut burl writing desk in the room) and my favorites, the Gustav Klimt and the Frank Lloyd Wright prints on the wall- color coördinated with the bed and the chair.
This place has been renovated since we stayed there in 2000. If you've got the money, I recommend it highly. If you get a room facing Austurvöllur square, you may get more of a view than you bargained for.
