The hotel sits on the hillside overlooking Torshavn. Yes, it's a steep walk back up to it from town. On the upside, the design of the hotel means that you have a spacious room, a fab view, and the delight of being able to open your bedroom window onto grassland rather than onto the road. Breakfast is the usual sort... More

An upside-down hotel with the entrance at the top of the hill, rooms down the side. A lovely welcoming place to stay, high above Thorshavn. Comfortable beds, a great restaurant, especially for breakfast. Look out for the Roll of Honour of famous people who have also enjoyed staying there!

An interesting architectural style on a hillside overlooking Torshavn. Very comfy and clean with a good breakfast but somewhat bland in the way that luxury hotels are. Not especially easy to get down to the main drag ie out of the centre of town.

We stayed 5 nights and were very happy. The room has a spacious bed with a desk and a little lounge area and the Windows overlook Torahavn Harbour. It has a spacious bathroom with a bath tub , good after a long day in the Faroe weather. It also has a minibar and room service with affordable prices as well... More

Located on a hillside overlooking the town, and with spectacular views of Torshavn and the island of Nolsoy this luxurious hotel is definitely the best in town. Rooms small but well provided, and each with a view. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good. Didn't eat any formal meals here. It is possible to walk into town, maybe 20 mins there... More

The best place to stay in Torshavn. Reception staff excellent. Rooms large and peaceful. Breakfast buffet extensive and the hotel restaurant has amazing views across the harbour and out to sea. The hotel is a little bit out of town but just a short taxi ride from the centre and walkable in about 20 minutes.

We just spent a week here on holiday, and it was a lovely stay at Hotel Føroyar. The hotel is located overlooking Tórshavn, and the views couldn't be better. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. The breakfast was a good Scandinavian style spread, and we had two dinner buffets which had excellent variety of salads and mains.... More

Nice and clean hotel situated in the hillside overlooking the Capital. Even though it seems a bit away from the town-center - it is easy to stroll from the hotel and down to the harbor. Nice and quiet hotel with breakfast included.
