Fantastic views over the harbour. It is quite a walk into town though. I asked about renting a car and the next day there was one available in the car park - I didn't even need to get to the car hire place. Great service, thank you. (The soup was horribly salty though!)

I liked staying at Hotel Foroyar. The room is spacious, with everything you need, nice view, TV, even bath and floor heating in the bathroom. The funny part is that there are sheep right behind your window. The interior decoration of the corridors is a bit unusual though. The breakfast offers a big choice with smoothies and local products.

We had a bridge competition in the Faroe islands. Two first days were rainy and windy, luckily we were inside. But when weather was better you can see wonderfull view and nice city in wolkable distance. We liked a lot.

I guess I could quibble a bit about the breakfasts. But our room is more than fine. It's large, nicely furnished, with puffy comforters and pillows and a sweeping view of the harbor. Plus the fabulous Koks Restaurant (more about Koks in a future post) is just a corridor and a staircase away. The city center is within easy driving... More

This hotel has the traditional roofing of houses on the Faroer, grass! So in summer they have to water the roof, and put a sheep on top for mowing ;-) The hotel is comfortable, clean and has a super breakfast, with a view over the island and harbour. It also has restaurant Koks, with a Noma style cooking, very innovative... More

We stayed here for the 2015 eclipse, although actually went elsewhere to view the event. It is a modern hotel with a nice feel to it, the turf roofs blending it into the hillside. As everyone says, the views are fantastic and you can watch the ferries and cruise liners come and go in the harbour below. The staff were... More

A nice hotel with a great location overlooking Torshavn. Designed by Philip Starck with reasonable rooms. The rooms have nothing special to be proud of. Some things are missing to make this hotel a real 4 star hotel. -They clean the rooms very late. -Being in Scandinavia with 280 rainy days a sauna in the hotel and a spa would... More

The hotel is set into the hill above Torshavn so has a wonderful view down over the town to the sea. All rooms, except the suites are the same and all have the view. Large rooms well furnished and the best bag of toiletries I have ever seen. Very quiet location. Breakfast is a splendid buffet of hot and cold... More

From the windows in your room you have a really wonderful view over Tórshavn and the sea; the walk to the city center is enjoyable and you get both the feeling of being in the nature and being close to the city. The hotel service is good and the rooms nice and modern. Very recommendable.
