The Tórshavn budget hotel formerly known as Hotel Streym has been reopened under the name Hotel Djurhuus, following months of extension and renovation work.
The new and improved hotel — still located at Yviri við Strond 19 — was presented to the public on May 6th. Among other things, the 3-star hotel, now with a 42-room capacity, has been fitted with several new rooms and a new dining hall, as well as a new entrance hall and reception desk plus a lounge on the top floor.
Last September Rúni Djurhuus, a Tórshavner, bought Hotel Streym from Svend Aage Ellefsen, of Miðvágur, who’d been running the hotel since 2006.
The new owner told news daily Portal.fo a few weeks ago that Hotel Djurhuus had already been fully booked for this summer.
