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

I stayed five nights at Hotel Hafnia with an international Solar Eclipse tour. March 18-23. There were members of three different tours staying at the hotel, and some of our group were at other hotels. Since riding in buses around the various lodging spots, I was very glad I was able to stay at Hotel Hafnia. I was in a... 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,

Although under renovation the stay was enjoyable. There is old charm in this hotel. Very friendly staff. The bathroom was a bit dated. Good sized room. Excellent breakfast. The wifi was very reliable.

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.
