The staff at this hotel are friendly and hospitable. The hotel is in a great location... no, make that *the best location in Torshavn*. The hotel restaurant serves great authentic Faroese food. There's a certain appealing, quaint atmosphere in the place. Unfortunately the experience was let down by a few negatives. The bathroom leaves a lot to be desired. The... More

An oldy worldy hotel with decor, atmosphere and service reminiscent of times gone by. Rooms were comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Location is excellent. I stayed three days but wasn't in the hotel very much due to work so can't comment on much else I'm afraid.

I didn't expect the Faroese hotels to be more than adequate, so this was a very pleasant surprise! Excellent location close to the harbour and restaurants, it had comfortable rooms, helpful staff, and, above all, very high quality food(breakfasts were as good as I've eaten anywhere

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.
