“Nice basic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

The hotel was clean and comfortable, though very basic. Their 2nd floor restaurant seemed popular with locals. The first floor bar had live music at night. It was an easy walk from the bus terminal, where the bus 300 will bring you from the airport. At first, it seemed that the hotel did not receive out reservation from booking.com, but fortunately they had rooms, and they matched the price we booked online, also gave us free cofee while we were waiting in the lobby. I would stay in this hotel if i visit Torshavn again.

Stayed July 2012

Very well located and with a friendly staff, we made from this hotel our base to explore the Faroes. Our room had a nice view over the harbour and was very nice at all, although the shower room was quite small.

Simple rooms, but nice. Awkward bathroom, small and the water goes everywhere. Didnt get to try breakfast as it doesnt open until 7 and our tour started at 7,the next day we had to leave at 6 to the airport. Nothing great about the place but not bad either. If walking from the bus station its hard to find as the sign is around the corner.

There are not many hotels to choose between on Faroe Islands but Hotel Torshavn is a good choice. Location is great in the very central of Torshavn. Busstation and Ferryterminal just a few hundred meters away. From the airport it´s a 50 minutes trip by bus (90DKK) or taxi (175DKK).
Stayed three people in a familyroom (max 4 pers). The room was quite small, I do not understand how four people could stay there! The room was clean and had all the basics. The bathroom was not modern though, the shower is not separated so you will get a wet floor.
They serve a good breakfastbuffet. If you leave on a early flight they make sure you get breakfast as early as 05:45.
Serviceminded staff at the hotel, they arrange carrental etc and give advice on what to see.
Hotel Torshavn is a good choice in the fantastic Faroe Islands.

Reasonably priced for its location, with substantial amounts of parking either directly behind or nearby. Near to the fort and the ferry terminal (which was critical for me) as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.

Free wifi (of varying signal strength depending where in the hotel you are) is a plus, the single rickety lift is a minus. The public areas are in need of some TLC (scoring and scuffing on the walls, for instance). The decor is also hit or miss.

The staff is helpful and kind, and in my experience will go out of their way to help, even with such outlandish requests as a pair of needlenose pliers to help repair a car.

The big killer for me was the state of the bathroom. The room itself was clean, but the bathroom had a strong, almost overwhelming smell of body odor, evidencing that it hadn't been cleaned since the last guest. Running the shower for ten minutes almost completely eliminated the odor, meaning that not even the most basic of measures had been taken to sanitize the shower. The toiletries had broken seals and had clearly been refilled.

Had such potential. Was sorely disappointed that I had to wear the shower slippers I carry around for emergency hostel use in a hotel that cost as much as this one did.

I.m a real fanatic of th Faroe Islands, and Hotel Tòrshavn is my choice. It is the most central of the four hotels of the town and it is the cheaper. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are good, and from my window i could see the Tòrshavn city hall building.
Breakfast is very good, and the hotel restaurant, Hvonn Brasserie, is one the best of the entire archipelago.
I hope to stay here again very soon.

The hotel is small but cosy right on the harbour front. I havent put in any photos of the actual hotel because it wasnt the sort of hotel that was luxury or anything like that but basic and just what you want from a hotel that you crash out in after a days hiking. Clean, everything that you needed, great service and very freindly staff. Its well worth the stay at this little functional hotel - and the restaurant served great portions to enjoy after a long day hiking in the wonderful Faroe Islands.... a must for the hiker who wants an experience for life. Highly recommended from two Danes and two British hikers in our group!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms were probably similar - warm and cosy with everything you need, lovely soft be...
