Very conveniently located, easy access to grocery store and the center. This apartment was exactly what I needed for a long weekend on the islands. You will hear traffic and walking - so keep that in mind if it is something that will bother you. Me - I slept like a princess in the very comfy bed and had a blast exploring the gorgeous Faroe islands!

The apartment has a good location, with everything you need within walking distance. The apartment was well equipped. The hosts was friendly and easy to get in touch with, as they live in the same house. This is a basement appartment, meaning that it is quite dark (few windows), and also quite low ceiling (maybe 185 cm in the lowest part).

Simply a great location, central to Torshavn yet nice and quiet! Hosts Elsa and Bjørn were super helpful ahead of my trip and very welcoming on my arrival - perfect hosts. Will definitely use again.

Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Elsa Maria but all enquiries were swiftly replied to and communications really easy. She was helpful and friendly and the apartment was just as the photos show. Bjorn met us on arrival and was equally warm and welcoming offering advice on where to visit and about local amenities. A lovely central base for a Faroe island trip, the apartment was well equipped and parking is available nearby too. Thank you for a lovely stay!

We had the great opportunity to stay at two of Elsa's homes on the Faroes. Both individually amazing places. The apartment in Torshavn was perfectly located, and we had an fantastic stay. Elsa + her husband were amazing hosts, lovely and super helpful. Will definitely plan on staying with them again!

Could not have asked for more. She and Bjorn were very attentive to me and the missus. Great location and great service and place. If i ever go back to the Faroes, will surely give her a call.
