We stayed here 7 nights and it was a good experience. Breakfast was nice with a lot of choices. Room comfortable with a great view. The hotel is a 25 min walk from town. There is a bus during weekdays every 20 minutes, but to reach the busstop you have to walk a small path downhill. (And when you go... More

Imagine a Bond Villain's lair furnished by Ikea and you would come up with a close approximation of this hotel. Set into the hillside and with a grass roof the hotel has a very low profile but this means all the rooms have a great view down the hill to the bay of Torshavn. The room are very comfortable with...

When I arrived at the Hotel Foroyar and tried to check in, I was told that check-in wasn't until 90 minutes later. "But if you pay 300 kr extra, you can get into your room now," the receptionist informed me. Not "Your room isn't ready yet" (which would have been perfectly fine), but "We're using this rule to get more... More

Hotels in the islands are not spectacular and at the beginning, being a 4 star hotel, I had my expectations higher than I should probably. The hotel is ok, for the region very good, but for a Western average, it is not good value for money. It is difficult to find as there are no directions although in The whole... More

I have been at Hotel Foroyar for 2 nights during a business trip. I can tell it is an excellent accomodation. Rooms are large, clean, with a super view on the city (I had room 120). Breakfast is good with many things to choose. You can relax also in the lobby where you find design furniture and comfortable chairs in... More

We spent 5 days here. The hotel is a little difficult to find -- you basically are looking for the hotel with the grass roof at the very top of the hill overlooking Torshavn. If you stop and ask people for directions, they happily help you -- but the street system is so complex that it is hard to describe... More

Group of 9 adults and 2 small children visiting Torshavn for the first time. Reception was very friendly and helpful with all our questions. Rooms were nice and clean, bathrooms spacious and nice. Big plus for the great view. Breakfast was good, lots to choose from. Only small complaint would be that the rooms got a bit hot, and that... More

We loved this hotel! The beds were really good, and most of all, it was quiet. The rooms are cleverly designed to deal with luggage, so it never looked cluttered. We had a spacious bath with a heated floor, and a big bedroom with a desk and also a separate table and chairs. Our room (and I think all of... More

We stayed 4 nights in May 2014. Our general impression was that the hotel and rooms do what you'd expect for a 4* hotel, and the staff are available and helpful. Our room ( on the check-in floor, no lift) was spacious and comfortable, and everything worked. We found the choices available for breakfast a little less than we'd expected,... More

On a windswept hill, by an even bigger, even more windswept hill lies this hotel, which is of unusual architecture and appearance. Inside it is very modern and reasonably comfortable. The rooms are large and well furnished, in trendy Scandinavian style, the beds will give you a good nights sleep, and the bathrooms clean and nice. The view, even from... More
