With a full kitchen, living room, multiple bedrooms, and laundry facilities, the Atlantic Swan is so much better than staying at a hotel. It's located just outside Torshavn, with scenic views in every direction. Jens (the owner) was very helpful. He responded almost immediately to requests for assistance. I will visit again!
It’s a warm,convenient apartment in Tórshavn,Faroe.
The facilities are new and comfortable.
It has 3 double rooms to sleep and very suitable for family travel.
I had a great time here.
Everything was as expected when we arrived, well furnished & clean. Very comfortable accommodation conveniently situated close to free city bus.
This was the second time I stayed at the Atlantic Swan. The first was in 2015 when I came to see the eclipse. The Islands are so beautiful that I knew I wanted to come back for a longer holiday, and I had no hesitation in booking the Atlantic Swan as it is such a lovely apartment. It's well-furnished throughout and spotlessly clean. There are two double bedrooms and a twin, each with a skylight. It was wonderful to lie in bed and look up at stars. The first morning I opened the skylight to look at the view across to Nólsoy and smell the amazingly clean air, so different to my home town.
The apartment is about a 40 minute walk from town, only about ten minutes in a car. However there is a bus stop a couple of minutes away for one of the free red buses down to the centre of Tórshavn which we used most days. There is a large FK supermarket about five minutes walk away, close to the National Museum.
Jens was a brilliant host, the best I've ever had when renting a property. He gave us lots of helpful information and advice, both before and during our holiday, replying to e-mails promptly. We didn't have any problems whilst we were there but I know he would have sorted things out as quickly as possible if there had been.
There is still so much that I want to see in the Islands and I'm already planning my next trip, and my stay at the Atlantic Swan. Thank you Jens for a fantastic stay.

A five minute drive from Tórshavn so a car is probably a must. There's a large supermarket just down the street. You can call a taxi but giving them directions is tricky. The place itself is amazing and comparable or cheaper than the tiny hotels in town.
