“Great hotel with a sense of humour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Spent a longer than planned weekend due to our flight being cancelled by weather but the staff were prepared to give us breakfast at 3am but this was thankfully changed to 7am due to further flight changes. Breakfast was the proper buffet style range of wonders that they usually provide too, not just a cup of coffee and a roll that we expected. The breakfasts were spectacular for their quality and choice. There was also tea, coffee and cake provided later on for those who wanted a snack. Apart from the excellent breakfasts the hotel was clean and quirky. The beds were very comfortable and we were blessed with a beautiful sea view. It was within easy walking distance of the town, restaurants, harbour and the old fort. Well worth a return visit.

Very good hotel, but would have to say more like travel lodge. Very Clean, fantastic continental breakfast, Keeps you going for ages. Rooms clean, toilet the same with good showers and good heating system.
Very helpful staff, hire cars available and not to expensive like big hire company's .
Police station adjacent , so no rowdys around, not that I have seen any in Torshavn .
I recommend this hotel, it's central to town centre, red buses in town are free, good service.

Room Tip: Back rooms face onto a stone cliff, front rooms sea view, I had a back room no problem nice and quie...

It´s basic, but everything works and is kept really fine. Absolutely beyond great breakfast for a standard hotel, fast wifi & service and the view from my room to the sea is priceless.

And it´s in easy walking distance from the inner harbour and all the restaurants and shops. Plus they have a cheap rental car if you are a guest - that has just saved me 500 kr.

i have been there last week for a short holiday in FO islands.
the price is a bit higher than an hostel but quite low for the average in torshavn.
the hotel can also provide you a rent car for your holiday that you can pick up at the airport (for a very special price, lower than well known companies you find in every airport in the world).
they offer a great continental breakfast (7am - 10am), free wifi in every room (or a computer you can use for internet access if you don't have portable devices). large lcd tv in every room. the bathroom is very large for danish standards. beds are quite comfortable, maybe the walls are thin and there's a bit of noise sometimes from other rooms. free park in front of the hotel.
i had some little problems to contact the hotel the week before arriving, i think they don't read emails every day so be patient.

Room Tip: ask for a front side room.

This looks like a hotel but is more like a guest house. Rooms are made up upon request as well as asking for clean towels. But it is clean, very lose to downtown, free parking in front of the hotel, great breakfast, friendly helpful staff and a good value in a very expensive town. When we return we will definitely stay there again.

We loved this hotel. It is a no-frills hotel, as others note, but it has not skimped on any of the essentials for a comfortable stay. It had a great shower and the washrooms have heated floors. The morning buffet breakfast was excellent and full of variety. The staff were really awesome - friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty. We also took advantage of the car rental and it was so easy and convenient. The walls are thin - that's the only issue - and if you are a sensitive sleeper, you can hear cars passing on the street side rooms (especially if it is wet outside). We could hear a child running around above us on our first night, but fortunately that family left. Other than that, I have nothing to complain about. I can't say enough great things about this place!

We live in the Outer Hebrides and decided to visit another beautiful island group for our recent holiday. We are so glad that we chose to visit Hotel Streym as it was perfect for our purpose. It is a no-frills hotel, but the service we received there would put many posh hotels to shame. We received a warm welcome on arrival and all staff were most helpful throughout our stay. The bedrooms were warm and were spotlessly clean. A good buffet breakfast was provided each morning and tea/coffee-making facilities were available throughout the day. We hired a car from the hotel and were glad we did as it saved hassling about with car-hire companies. God willing, we hope to return to the Faroes one day - and if we do we know where we'll be staying: Hotel Streym!
