The hotel is located not too far from the bus station, where we have to drag our luggages uphill (yes it is, but nearby to catch an early bus to the airport). The room is ok, spacious, clean but the bathroom could be improved since the size is small and having a shower could be a challenge. Other than that,... More

Do eat here if you have a chance. The food was wonderful, though my husband was not impressed by all the flavored foams. I thought it was well presented, creative and delicious. Recommended. The local friends we shared a meal with here were sort of lukewarm about eating here. Aarstova was their first choice, but we could not get a... More

Stayed for 4 nights from the end of April through early May. Honestly - I was wondering which to choose for Torshavn accommodation: a great view from Hotel Foroyar or the convenience of city central location and I decided to choose the convenience. Which worked very nice for me. From Hotel Hafnia you can access a lot of services by... More

Was here for business, and it did a very good job at hosting. Very friendly and reliable service. Staff were chatty and friendly. Room was very small, bed not the most comfy and the toilet bowl gurgled and ran all night (which was annoying). Large breakfast selection and evening meal was very good. Free wifi was very strong and completely... More

Stayed here 3 nights on business. I got a single room which was extremely small, especially the bathroom. The bed was very soft sort of 'sinky'. Returned 3 days ago and still suffering from backache. The bathroom is even worse. The shower, tap and toilet just separate with a small curtain. It's impossible to have a shower without making a... More

Only stayed one night but the service was great, they had under-floor heating in the bathroom and good quality wifi in the room itself. The people on reception were very friendly. Also there is a fantastic restaurant located very close by called Arastova – two minutes walk. Overall I was very pleased.

We loved our 7 nights at the Hotel Hafnia. The staff are so friendly and helpful, and not all put out that 2 Australians could speak English only. The room was comfortable and very clean, although the curtain arrangement in the shower took a bit of time to get used to. The hotel's position is excellent, easy walking distance to... More

I spent three nights at this hotel last week. I found the staff were particularly friendly (and people on the Faroe Islands are generally friendly). The food in the restaurant was excellent, with a menu that concentrated on quality rather than a wide choice of dishes. The room was ok but not exceptional. Most of the TV channels were in... More

The best the thing about Hafnia is the central location in Torshavn right between the harbour and the main street. Rooms are OK, but do not expect a lot of space nor any luxury (you would probably not have gone to Torshavn in the first place if you did...). You'll get a fairly modern room with bed, a desk, two...
