“Good rooms and breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Friendly staff, nice rooms and breakfast, it lies in the center off town near to many restaurants cafes and the harbor.
We specially ate very well at Restaurant 11 which was very close to the hotel, because in hotel Torshavn they had only a pizza, burger etc. menu which you can eat all over the world.
Good coffee in close to the hotel it was suppose to be best coffee in town and it really was !!!

Room Tip: Room with harbor view is great !

Torshavn was a trip of lifetime coming from England and I wanted to stay somewhere nice. It does seem that all the hotels in the Faroes are simple but expensive. The room was adequate size (we upgraded to a harbour view-which with the sunrise was outstanding!) the location is in the middle of town and there is a free car park around the corner! The resteraunt on the ground floor is a American-Italian-Mexican sort if fusion, another words, it's decent pub grub and not too expensive compares to else where. Breakfast is good of a good quality - standard Danish breakfast, eggs, bacon, cereal, assortments of breads etc

All in all, this is one of the best places to stay in Torshavn, the sunrise alone is worth the price!

Stayed February 2014

For 790 DKK a night you would expect a little more than a small room with a lavatory/shower that seemingly was last redecorated in the 80's. Otherwise the hotel was nice and very well located. Breakfast was very good and the restaurants cosy with live music in the bar one evening. The staff was very friendly and we appreciated that we were served breakfast even before opening hours the last morning. Tórshavn is a very picturesque town with an interesting history.

If you stay here at the weekend be aware of the amount of noise that can elevate up from the street outside from the local kids. This can go on until 4am. Good mattresses. A good kitchen even though the menu is basic and American. Nice staff. Central.

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.

Room Tip: go for standard rooms

Hotel Torshavn is situated in the center of Torshavn, the Faroese capital, a short walk away from the bus- and ferry terminal, where you arrive, whether you take the boat or if you have taken the airport shuttle to town.

The lobby is fairly small, but clean and neat, though the upholstery could do with some work. The staff are pleasant at all times of day and night, and perform their jobs excellently, and always with a smile. From the lobby, you can access the brasserie/cafe, Hvonn (pronounced kvonn), which is where breakfast is served in the mornings.

A very small elevator (rated for 3 people, and 300 kg) takes you up to your floor. Alternately, you may take the (far wider) stairs. The hotel has not switched to electronic keys, and still hand you a little anvil connected to your key. The rooms themselves are fairly stylish and comfortable, with large drapes to cover the windows at night.

The beds are VERY soft. If you, like me, have back issues; expect to have an aching back after staying there. The bathroom, though perfectly serviceable, does not seem to have been upgraded in any considerable fashion since the 1970's. Nothing wrong with it; just a bit basic and spare. Still, perfectly serviceable.

The breakfast buffet is nice, but lacks one staple of Nordic hotel breakfasts, smoked salmon, which is a shame, as the Faroe Islands boasts some beautiful specimens.

We stayed almost one week at this Hotel and enjoyed every day. The rooms are a little bit small if you have a lot of luggage but clean and comfortable. After complaining at the reception we're offered a slightly bigger room on the rearside of the hotel (unfortunately without the beautiful view over the city and the harbour). A good Pizzeria is in the hotel and you can order take away. The staff of the Hotel was extremly friendly and the reception was very professional and competent. The receptionist was so kind to buy for me a souvenir in a shop in Torshavn and send it via mail to Europe. I was so happy when I received the envelope and I can't imagine this to happen in another hotel.

I recommend this hotel if you plan to stay a few days in the (small) city of Torshavn.
The location and quality of this Hotel is excellent.

Room Tip: Front side = view over the harbour
