The Faroe Islands is a breathtaking archipelago in the North Atlantic Ocean. Located between Iceland and Norway, it’s the perfect combination of historical and natural interest. I have had the chance to visit the place twice and stay at a variety of different Faroe Islands hotels while there. This is a guide of where to stay in the Faroe Islands- from apartments to budget and luxury accommodation.

Best Faroe Islands Hotels: From Budget to Luxury Accommodation

I have decided to break down the list by grouping the properties by island. Hopefully, this will give you an idea of which hotel in the Faroe Islands will be the best for your itinerary. Don’t have your route planned yet? This Faroe Islands itinerary will help get you started.

Streymoy Accommodation

Hotel Streym (Tórshavn)

I stayed at Hotel Streym on my last night in the Faroe Islands last August with Allison. The location was absolutely ideal as it hugged the gorgeous Atlantic coast and was just a stone’s throw away from the city center of Torshavn. The rooms were practical, yet comfortable and the breakfast was extremely tasty.

My favorite thing about Hotel Streym was the personality that the Faroes hotel exuded. Each room had a little, cheeky quote or text outside of it and it left me wandering the halls laughing during my entire stay there. The hotel is located at 19 Yviri við Strond in Tórshavn.

Hotel Føroyar (Tórshavn)

If you’re looking to stay at one of the most renowned properties in the Faroe Islands, look no further than Hotel Føroyar. This hotel is situated a bit outside of Torshavn city enter and is quiet, cozy, and exudes Faroese charm. I know many people who have chosen the hotel as their accommodation in the Faroe Islands and not a single person has had anything negative to say. I hope to call it home for a night or two the next time I am there! You can find Hotel Føroyar at 45 Oyggjarvegur in Tórshavn.

While I haven’t had the chance to stay at Hotel Hafnia in Torshavn just yet, I have been inside there to have a drink and I have also enjoyed the attached cafe called Cafe Kaspar.

Hotel Hafnia is one of the most notable hotels in the Faroe Islands and they offer everything from a conference center to rooms with puffin artwork. Yea, say no more. I’m moving in. You can find Hotel Hafnia at Aarvegur 4 -10 in Tórshavn.

Bordoy Accommodation

Hotel Klaksvik (Klaksvik)

Klaksvik is one of my favorite places in the Faroe Islands and Hotel Klaksvik is the ideal place to stay when there. This Faroe Islands hotel is located in a perfect spot with killer views of the sea and close to a really great bar called Roykstovan (that I spent too much time at one night). The breakfast was typical Scandinavian-style with delicious bread and toppings and we were even able to make sandwiches for the road that day, which saved on lunch!

CLICK HERE FOR MY GUIDE TO FAROE ISLANDS TOUR OPTIONS

One thing to note about Hotel Klaksvik is that the customer service was exceptional when we were there. The gentlemen working the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful with everything. This was true Faroese hospitality and I highly recommend staying here to anyone passing through Klaksvik or the northern islands. You can find the hotel at Vikavegur 38 in Klaksvik.

Sandoy Accommodation

Hotel Skalavik (Skálavík)

I stopped at Hotel Skalavik for a coffee and break when on Sandoy. I, unfortunately, didn’t get to sleep there, but given I need to get back to the island to finally see Skuvoy, I know I will someday. The hotel was modern and well laid-out. My favorite thing about the hotel was the friendly customer service and the views of the village outside. Skalavik reminded me of the Canadian Maritimes and it was so peaceful and quaint. I need to get back there asap!

There aren’t heaps of choices of places to stay on Sandoy but rest assured, this is a good pick if you’re going to overnight on the island. Easily one of the best Faroe Islands hotels. You can find Hotel Skalavik at 1 Eiler Jacobsens Gøta in Skálavík.

Suduroy Accommodation

Bed and Breakfast Suduroy (Tvøroyri)

My stay at Bed and Breakfast Suduroy was easily one of my favorite experiences in the Faroes to date- and that includes the sick nature that the country is teeming with. Bindi and her family made us feel at home in this beautiful apartment and the fresh eggs and breakfast that was left for us were sensational. The entire space was gorgeous and cozy and I only regret not staying (for like an entire year). You can find B&B Suduroy at 12 Ovari Vegur in Tvøroyri.

Airbnb in the Faroe Islands

You can also check out Airbnb in the Faroe Islands for apartments or alternative accommodation options. Click here to see what is available. I used Airbnb in Torshavn on my first trip and it was a fantastic experience as I was able to buy fresh, local seafood from the fishmonger and cook it in the evenings for dinner. It saved me money, yet I was still able to support the local economy- so I deem it a win/win.

Renting a Car in the Faroe Islands

The best way to get around the Faroe Islands is by car. I mean, you can technically get around by public transportation, but it will be rather difficult and you will have to be at the mercy of a timetable for your entire trip.
