,Hotel Borg, Reykjavik Hotel Borg combines old time elegance with modern style in the centre of Reykjavik, Icelands capital, a supreme location which leaves the hotel just steps away from a variety of restaurants and shops. The four star Hotel is a showcase of sophistication. All 56 rooms have custom-made furniture and fittings with modern amenities including flat-screen satellite TV and high-speed internet connections. The period black and white bathrooms are well equipped with Philippe Stark fittings and heated marble floors. By mixing colors, forms and material, furniture and curtains each room gets its own individual touch. For an extra touch of luxury, Hotel Borg offers superior rooms and suites. Hotel Kea, Akureyri Located in the heart of Akureyri, gateway to the rich natural splendor of northeast Iceland, Hotel Kea has been welcoming guests since 1944 with the same high standards of elegance, quality, service and comfort which would be expected of one of Iceland's well-established hotels. The hotel offers four halls for meetings and conferences, bars and restaurant. Comfort, rest and relaxation come easily in all of the 104 bedrooms. They all have private bathroom, coffee- and tea-making facilities, hairdryer, telephone, radio and satellite television. There is room service from morning till evening and same day dry cleaning, just to name a few of the benefits awaiting every guest.
