Siglo Hotel in Siglufjordur Set to Open its Doors in June
Experience the historic town of Siglufjordur while enjoying the amenities of this new hotel.
The highly anticipated Siglo Hotel will finally open its doors in early June. Built into a fisherman’s marina, all rooms at the hotel have a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains and quaint town of Siglufjordur. Siglo Hotel strives to offer its guests a relaxing environment with a classic and romantic design. The rooms are spacious and decorated with pictures depicting the area’s unique history and culture.
Hotel amenities include a restaurant, cafe, outdoor spa and more. Restaurant Sunna, which is located within the hotel, provides visitors with a taste of traditional Icelandic comfort food. Restaurant Sunna is named after the building that once stood where Siglo Hotel now stands. Just outside the restaurant is where the daily catch is brought in, providing guests a fresh, authentic taste of Icelandic seafood. Siglo's lobby café and bar is an excellent place where visitors can kick back and relax by the bar or cozy fireplace. A simple menu provides guests with the energy needed for a delightful day in town. Next to the hotel are Hannes Boy and Kaffi Rauðka, two very popular neighborhood restaurants visitors will surely want to check out.
In the booming days of the herring era (1867-1968), Siglufjordur was dubbed the “Herring Capital of the World.” Since then, this northernmost town of Iceland has been considered one of the country's most historic places. Siglo Hotel offers guests the opportunity to experience Siglufjordur as it is today while getting to know its historic past through sightseeing and museum tours. With plenty of local activities, close proximity to the award winning Herring Era Museum, stunning natural surroundings and friendly atmosphere, Siglo Hotel is a location to enjoy all year around.
