“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I stayed there for a night in a business trip. The hotel is very stylish and comfortable. Room are big, very clean. I have tried both the food at the bar and and at the gourmet restaurant "Koks". Both were really good. The hotel is located above Torshvan and there is a superb view over the city and some islands.
Overall a very plaisant and enjoyable stay.

Staying here for a full work week in september was really a pleasure ! I was running a traing for two different bank groups, using the function rooms in the hotel for all my training. I find the hotel very good for traing events. One guy at the hotel "Thomas" did a excellent job in making sure that the AV material were in a proper and excellent condition at all times.
I stay at the hotel and got all three meals a day here - very good and recommendable.
Rooms are nice and well equipped. The hotel has free WIFI with very good speed everywhere.
I will certainly plan my next training on the islands at this hotel !

Room Tip: All rooms are great with super views

Great hotel and fantastic view of town and harbor. However the Hotel does not offer a transportation to the city centre - except a taxi (which costs 100 DKK)!!!!!! The breakfast could be improved. Friendly staff.

We really enjyoed staying at Hotel Føroyar: we loved the location above Tórshavn with beautiful views of the town and the Atlantic Ocean from every room and the restaurant.

The totally quiet room had a modern scandinavian design and was bright and airy. Housekeeping was pretty good, they could have replaced our juice glasses with new ones rather than rinsing them with clear water only, though.

Fast WiFi was available.

Dinner at "KOKS" restaurant was great: world class cuisine, presentation and very good service, let alone the gorgeous views.

Breakfast buffet (included) in the same restaurant was a whole different experience, though: limited items, slow restocking, mostly invisible non-proactive service staff. They really have to adjust here and bring breakfast near the quality level of dinner.
