Hotel Vagar in the Faroe Islands has been ranked amongst the top 10 in ”The best airport hotels in the world” by freelance journalist and sub-editor Ronan O’Shea who writes for The Independent.
In his Indy Go column this week, O’Shea points out that: ”In days gone by, spending the night at an airport hotel was considered a humdrum affair, characterised by formulaic chains, carbon-copy hotel rooms and uninspiring cuisine. But no more; today, there are a number of great airport hotels worth keeping an eye out for on your travels.”
Including Hotel Vagar:
”Located in the small village of Sorvagur and a 10-minute walk from Vagar Airport, Hotel Vagar’s best selling point is the panoramic views of the Faroe Islands from the hotel’s many windows”, states O’Shea, adding that: ”With the wild Atlantic on its doorstep and small rocky islands jutting out of the sea, this is one of the most beautiful places to wake up – and the Gasaladur waterfall is only a 15-minute car ride away.”
The other airport hotels in O’Shea’s top 10 are: Moxy Milan (Italy), Radisson Blu Stansted (England), Naumi Auckland (New Zealand), Hilton Schiphol Amsterdam (Holland), Hotel Verde Cape Town (South Africa), CitizenM Charles de Gaulle (France), Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport (USA), Courtyard by Marriott Bogota Airport (Colombia) and YOTELAIR London Gatwick (England).
