Retro Retreat: Hotel Borg in Reykjavik

Hotelborg

Until the Midland Hotel in Morecambe is restored, the best place to find some Art Deco glamour is the Hotel Borg in Reykjavik, Iceland, which re-opens in May, back to its former glory.

Built in 1930, the Hotel Borg was Reykjavik’s original hip hangout, four-star glamour that attracted the rich and famous of the era (Marlene Dietrich was a regular visitor). After a long (and costly) renovation, all 56 rooms are back to their Art Deco best, combining period pieces, custom-made furnishing and modern amenities you perhaps wouldn’t expect – like flat-screen TVs and high-speed internet.

The final work is now being undertaken and you can book now – but as you might expect, it isn’t cheap. You can treat yourself from £127 for a single room (low season). But check the website for specially-priced breaks.
