This hotel is the only choice for accommodation anywhere near the Faroes Airport. It is basic but fine and it was a life saver for me when my flight out of the Faroes was delayed by 30 hours.
I stayed at the Hotel Streym in Torshavn from 18-22 July 2012 and was due to leave on a 3.30pm Atlantic Airways flight. However, on waking the fog was so heavy it was obvious there would be problems and a quick Internet check of the Vagar Airport site showed the flights were significantly delayed. Sensing it might be a sizeable delay, I tried to book an extra night at the Hotel Streym. No go as they were booked out (although anyone on a flight would not have arrived until the next day!). I then gambled on the airport hotel and got a room, thinking I might just hang out there until a late flight that day. As it turned out, this was a good move because there were no flights that day and I had to stay the night and did not end up leaving until late the next day.
The hotel is only a 5 minute walk from the airport but it is over a goat track, which is a real struggle with wheeled luggage.
The room was a standard room, meaning it looked over the car park, rather than the tarmac. That was fine but the excellent big window did mean you had to be careful with the curtains and the doors as there was a direct line of sight into the bathroom :)
The room actually gets a high score for excellent lighting, both natural and artificial. Lots of designer hotels get this so wrong. I want to be able to see in my room!
There was free, though slow, wifi. The tv had CNN and BBC. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room and no fridge.
All the staff were very pleasant. The restaurant was OK for lunch and breakfast - much better than the airport alternatives.
So, there is no real choice but it is fine for a short stay and much better than camping out in the airport.
