My and a couple of my friends went out for lunch. We decided on Hafnia, since we've all had good meals there before. This was not the case this time. They have just replaced all the staff, this has not had a positive effect. The waiter never gave us a wine/drink card and she had to come back to check... More

We stayed 3 night here, at this 4 star hotel, that desperately needed renovation. The room was very old and had a small, very bad bathroom for this standard. The water from the shower did leak out on the floor and carpet in the bedroom, because of a rotten door. It was no ventilation and it smelled old in the... More

I stayed three nights at the Hotel Hafnia which is located in the old part of Tørshavn, an excellent place to be! The harbor with various ferries is two blocks away, two banks are only three blocks away, an excellent library is just two blocks away, and the Tourist Information office is also very close by. I checked into my... More

Torshavn was our second place to stay on the Faeroe Islands. We arrived in front of the hotel and were a bit surprised about the scaffold around the building. The reception was very friendly and we got a room in the new extension. This room was really nice and well equipped with everything you need with a large, modern bath... More

Great location but 'small' does not describe the dimensions of the room. The clue comes when you find the external door opens OUT into the corridor. Currently undergoing renovation which meant drilling at 0800. Dinner at the restaurant was reasonable (but expensive); the choice at brekfast on our second morning was very limited. Reception staff very helpful

The location is excellent, right in the middle of Tórshavn and just moments from the harbour. The room, although very small, was stylish and comfortable with a great bathroom. The free WiFi was reliable. The breakfast was by far the best we had anywhere in the Faroe Islands. The staff were unfailingly helpful and efficient. The hotel is currently (summer... More

Very good location in the heart of compact Thorshavn. The staff is particularly nice and helpful. The hotel is currently under a facade restauration, but in a way that did not bother us very much at all.

Still wrapped i plastic, due to the renovation, but interior close to finished and modern Scandinavian design, light and open. A pleasant hotel dead center in town, with the harbour 5 minutes walk away. Parking in the street so consider paying.

Nice classical hotel with broadloom and dark wood. Central location. Nice staff with a secluded parking lot (although small). Free wifi but with insufficient cover. We had to go outside to the corridor to have connection (a quite insignificant problem). Mediocre breakfast.
