Visiting remote places usually offers 2 options: 1: easy maneuvreable, friendly & helpful people and cosy atmosphere...2: easy maneuvreable, introvert & unfriendly people and colourless ambience. Unfortunately I found Faroe islands belonging in category 2. From the minute i entered the flight till leaving the country I did not feel welcome. People stare at you or ignore you.
Good things about hotel: Even torshavn is a small town the hotel is in a quite good location by the harbour, you might even find a place or two which is open. The internet is good & free. Breakfast was very good. There are dinneroptions at this hotel- I did not use it so dont know if it is any good.
I booked a singleroom, which is not recommended if you are a grown up man. Size fits the cabins on a ship- bed narrow and if you will feel the drafty cold faroese winds through the door when in bed. Bathroom a place for changing your mind. good tv-reception and toiletries. and clean.
Most interesting thing on this trip was the drive from/to the airport- the scenery is stunning if you avoid the looooong tunnels kindly sponsored by Danish taxmoney.
Considering the price for a trip to these islands, I would say its a waste of time and money- but its a dot on my travelmap and it will remain that way. Been there, done that and not again.
