It is possible that the University of Iceland will buy Hotel Hótel Saga. This is confirmed by Jón Atli Benediktsson, rector of the school, in a conversation with Fréttablaðið’s Business Market, but the hotel was closed last November.
Jón Atli says that negotiations are underway with the Ministry of Culture about the purchase . The idea is to move the University of Iceland’s education department from Stakkahlíð to the building, in addition to which it is being considered that there will be offices, a technical department and a student park.
In a conversation with the newspaper, Jón Atli says that it would be cheaper to buy Hotel Saga, given certain conditions, but to build new housing.
Morgunblaðið also covers the ancient hotel today and there is an interview with Gunnar Þorgeirsson, chairman of the Farmers’ Association of Iceland, who says the association is in talks with a number of interested parties about purchase of the building.
These include the university, but also parties interested in running hotels there and companies in the health department that are exploring the possibility of turning the hotel into a nursing home.
