I stayed in this hotel for a night or 2, before and after a trekking on the snow. I must say this hotel is very hot :-) be sure, you will never be cold in this snowy destination, rather you'll be too warm when going to sleep. I particularly like the breakfast buffet, it has a good variety of things... More

I went to Longyearbyen with my father sometime in March of 2010, this may not be of much help since it's been 5 years and TripAdvisor doesn't allow me to put a date older than April 2014, but I thought I'd share my experience. Not sure if there has been any renovations since but I remember that the bathrooms were... More

Stayed here 3-6/3, 2015 and had a great stay. Good Food and Nice staff. Rooms were of normal standard and totally ok, no hotel standard though - which we didnt expect either :) Funny Place With both historical and creative interior. Great beds, great shower. Quiet Place for good sleep. Hair dryer and kettle was a plus, and daily cleaning.... More

If you are traveling to Svalbard and Longyearbyen, then I can really recommend staying here. Mary Ann`s is a place with a lot of heart. Great service, nice rooms, friendly and helpfull staff makes this the place to stay in Longyearbyen.

Amazing place on Svalbard. Atmosphere and interrior not to be forgotten. It's different and veeery special kind of place, so if you expect classic chain hotel - better take something else. We could feel real atmopshere of old Longyearbyen, cause place reminds a bit museum (many pictures, many stories, old school furniture and so on). Very nice and helpful staff... More

Staff was Great! Bring earplugs, the bowling alley corridor is noisy as people are moving about 24/7. I tried to walk as quietly as possible but to no avail. Shared showers are clean. I booked the tours and trips thru the hotel. There is a common area that has a television and games and a limited book shelf. It is... More

We had just the basic room, and it was really really simple. Reminded me of the school camp accommondation places when I was young. There was a bunk bed, a very old arm chair and a shelf in the room. The floors were plastic and the general appearance of the room was very cheap. The bathrooms were shared, breakfast would... More

This is a quirky place that is in the redone miners quarters in Longyearbyen. It is not a polished modern hotel. It fits in with its surroundings and feels like you are Spitsbergen.. It is spotlessly clean, and lots of local memorabilia around. I stayed in the lowest price single room one night outbound and one night on the return.... More

Basic EXPENSIVE b&b.(breakfast not included in the price....) Basic rooms with communal bathrooms. Need to walk to the centre or take an unbelievable expensive taxi (if you have luggage or the weather is not the best) Nice decode to the communal spaces.
