Hotel Streym is a like a common dormitory except for the price. The rooms are small, walls thin, the view from the window to an ugly building. The bed is very good though and everything is clean. The staff is friendly and the breakfast good. The biggest asset is the location, just a few minutes from the bus terminal. If... More

Really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Streym where I was made to feel very welcome. It has a relaxed, good natured, family-run atmosphere and although quite basic, it has everything you need , is comfortable and spotlessly clean. I had a room with a terrific view out to the island of Nolsoy. There’s complimentary, high speed WiFi throughout and the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and I have to say that I really enjoyed my stay. This is not a super-luxurious hotel, and it doesn't claim to be. Instead, it is a very clean and comfortable place to sleep. It is very well located, a short walk from the city centre (about 10 min) and close to Skansin, the... More

I have traveled all around the world, but for sure the single room at the Hotel Streym is the smallest I ever stayed it. The room was around 2x2 meters.. the first day I had to keep on moving my suitcase around in order to be able to either use the bathroom or the door to go out. If you... More

We spent four nights at Hotel Streym and really enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers have said, the facilities are basic, or minimalistic. However, it's very clean, the rooms are a good size and well heated (important in the Faroe Islands). The buffet breakfast was good and they staff friendly and helpful. They offer car hire which is very economical... More

I stayed because of the solid reviews and the fact that Streym is in a central location. Staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are, as everyone states, very basic and well-maintained. Fellow travelers were also friendly. I enjoyed my stay.

Relaxed atmosphere at this hotel just a short and pleasant walk into the centre of the town.A short walk to ferry terminal and most sights within walking distance. Great views of the island of Nolsoy all day from the sea view rooms and from the coast nearby. The hotel feels relatively new,some quirky design details and Nordic furnishings throughout.

Two nights here but I was very happy with the place. Hotel Streym offers very good value pricing for a destination that you might think would carry a premium. No frills, very simple furnishings and decor but clean & everything you'd need. My only gripe was the small bed and thin mattress. Good breakfast, strong wi-fi and car hire at... More

Location for this hotel is absolutely OK - it takes 5-10 minutes to walk to the city center. But as a hotel I can not give it more than two stars. It seems fairly new but somehow falling apart and a bit scruffy. In our room (307) there is even a hidden window filled with Rockwoll. Never seen that before... More

There are not too many options for accommodation not the Faroe Islands. The Hotel Streym was very comfortable and a great location if you have a car (as you can avoid many of the narrow streets). It is in walking distance of town and the harbour and we had a room with great sea views, so we could watch the... More
