This hotel is located in the outskirts of Torshavn but it is great. Every room has a great view of the bay and the capital of the Faroe Islands. The rooms are very spacious, the beds are really good and you can feel that the mattresses are the good quality. All rooms have a bathtub, a mini bar and a... More

This Hotel was easy to find with a spectacular view of the Harbour. It had tea-making facilities and the breakfasts were excellent. We were disappointed at not being able to eat at the Koks Restaurant either of the 2 nights we were there although the Staff were very helpful about recommending restaurants in Torshavn and also booked taxis for us.

I stayed here for 4 nights on a guided tour/knitting holiday. I simply don't understand others who moan that it's on the outskirts of the town/up the hill and wonder why they didn't research the place before they booked. The views are stunning, the rooms spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts(buffet style) are simply awesome.... More

We stayed here for a week as we explored the islands. We liked our spacious room, the pretty views (including coming face to face with a sheep outside our window one morning!), the excellent bathroom, and the very rich and tasty breakfast (seconding the many positive comments about the salmon!). The location can be a downside, as it might be... More

Many thanks for writing your kind words following your recent stay at Hotel Føroyar. I am so glad that you liked our spacious rooms, the pretty view with all it's charms. I understand that the our hotel can seem far away from the centre in Tórshavn but then again we would not be able to offer the fantastic view. I... More

Every room and the restaurant has a view of the capital Torshavn. Perched on the top of the hill above town (not 20 minutes walk as the hotel says but more like 30 downhill and more uphill!), the hotel offers superb views. Service is S-L-O-W. You can wait 10 minutes to retrieve your room key. The bar service is even... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel. We chose it because it was the only 4-star hotel on the islands but for us it is a 3-star. The building is nicely located in the hills of Thorshavn with a great view (from all the rooms). But you better have a car to go to the village. Parking is big and... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Hotel Føroyar and for sharing your experience with other Tripadvisor readers. I am sorry to hear that a room on the 1th floor was not ready for you upon arrival and that you during your stay was not offered a room on the first floor. The service personal at a... More

We used the Hotel Føroyar as our base for a holiday in the Faroe Islands. It was built around 30 years ago, and has been kept reasonably up to date, is clean and comfortable. The rooms are typically Scandinavian, simple and minimalist, reasonable size and good bathroom. Storage and desk space are particularly generous. The beds are the usual Scandinavian... More

Hotel Foroyar built in 1983. On line booking worked without a hitch. Arriving Faroe Islands by Atlantic Airways we rented a car at the Vagar airport. Took the old road to Torshavn ( avoided the tunnel on Streymoy) and you will almost drive into the hotel when you reach the first point at Oyggarvegur where you can actually see Torshavn.... More

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Føroyar in a well kept, good size room. It's more than 30 years since the hotel opened and it still feels modern and smart. Our room had an excellent bed, two comfortable chairs and nice furniture. Nice bathroom with floor heating. Reception and bar service was friendly and helpful. The location is both a... More

The hotel itself is in a pretty spot but I agree with some of the others in term of service and lack of value for the money. There was a consistent lack of effort on the part of reception/bar/restaurant staff to even pretend in delivering REASONABLE service ,notice I did not say very good service or heavens forbid excellent service...
