Contemporary Luxury
at Eilert Smith Hotel

Eilert Smith Hotel is no ordinary hotel. The boutique hotel in Stavanger, Norway, has 12 individually designed rooms - all with a focus on Scandinavian design and world class facilities. The hotel is designed by Trodahl Architects. As part of the hotel you find Eilert’s Residence. A 250 square metres penthouse suite. Norwegian architect Pål Trodahl has designed Eilert's Residence using only the finest materials and classic furniture pieces, including Finn Juhl’s Japan Series and Egyptian Chairs. The unique interior, combined with a spectacular panoramic view over Stavanger and the harbour, places Eilert's Residence in a league of its own.

Today the modernistic warehouse from 1937 has gained new life as the building has been transformed into a boutique hotel and Michelin-starred restaurant: Eilert Smith Hotel and restaurant RE-NAA. The reconstructing of the building was done by architect Paal Trodahl at Trodahl Arkitekter. Signe Anne and Kristoffer Stensrud who are the owners of the hotel, had a desire to preserve the building’s historic heritage, renew it and create a dynamic and comfortable hotel.

Eilert Smith Hotel is located between Stavanger’s old wooden houses and modern high-rise buildings. The exclusive and boutique hotel with only 12 rooms is named after architect Eilert Smith, who originally designed the building back in 1937. In the 1930’s functionalist architecture was popular in Stavanger. Institutions, businesses, and private houses were built in this new and international style. The building in Nordbogata 8 was not designed as a hotel back then, but as a shop and storehouse for the local farmers’ cooperative.
