A small and intimate 10 bedroom boutique hotel in a historic house, at the heart of Stykkisholmur, filled with local stories, good times and sweet dreams.

Our dwellers are explorers - strangers in a strange land.

When Hotel Egilsen opens up it's door these strangers will feel at home in this relaxed and easy going atmosphere making them feel among friends, mingling with the natives, swapping stories, talking about life and planning new adventures.

The space
We want our guests to feel at home while staying with us; to get a good nights sleep and enjoy a delicious breakfast or a drink in our lounge while browsing the books in our library. We have 10 bedrooms who are small but comfortable and cozy. Interiors are inspired by the sea and modern design is mixed with the old. We have the all natural COCO-mat beds for our guests to get a good nights sleep.

Guest access
Relax at the bar after a day of exploring and share your stories with our staff or other guests. We serve among others Icelandic beer and delicious cocktails made by our bar tender. In winters we serve a variety of warm drinks.

Browse through our small library of books while you enjoy your drink. You might get inspired to write a story of your own to share with others on this website. It´s also possible to swap one of your books with one of ours but make sure to ask our staff first which ones are available for that.

Enjoy our fresh, home made and delicious breakfast in our lounge. We have eggs, Icelandic salmon, granola, yogurt and freshly made smoothie to mention a few. Of course there´s fresh coffee and a variety of tea to choose from.

Other things to note
Hotel Egilsen is one of the few historic hotels in Iceland and the building itself is protected by the nations cultural heritage act. It was built in 1867 by an influential man at that time named Egill Egilsson and hence the name, Egilsen House has stuck with it ever since. Our guests have the history of the building as a backdrop and have the opportunity to create their own history based on experiences and share it with us by leaving behind a story that is published on our website. Iceland is a nation of storytellers and since the first settlers arrived in the late eight century storytelling has always been important to us. We at Hotel Egilsen carry on this heritage and it is a well-known secret that Hótel Egilsen values a good story as much as it values its sparkling dinnerware. Therefore we encourage our guests to leave us a story and get a discount on their stay. It is our hope that these narrations may continue to live in the memories of our guests long after their return home.
