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.

The hotel was an ideal centre point from which to explore the Faroes and (try and) see the eclipse. Clearly they were catering for a much larger crowd than usual but this never diminished the staffs' welcome and helpfulness. I found the breakfast excellent and the obvious continued renovations did not detract from the enjoyment , in particular there was... More

The hotel is situated close to the center of Torshavn and close to the harbour. The rooms a not updated as one expect due to normal "european standard" - a bit old fashion, especially the bathroom. Breakfast is okay without beeing excellent and the restaurant serves good food and wine- but to expensive,
