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.

We spent one night here before we went on a cruise with G adventures. The airport bus dropped us off right at the gate and we found a long building with interesting decoration and a lovely bar. The rooms are small but very clean and warm. The location is very handy, only a few minutes walk into town. The people... More

This is our third trip to Svalbard and our third stay at Mary Ann's Polariggen. Again we were made to feel very welcome, the rooms are warm and comfortable and the food great! The Thai food and Mary Ann's seafood dinner was fantastic. Also the breakfasts are very substantial and tasty. I would recommend anyone visiting Svalbard to stay here... More

It is definitely a different place, but I guess so is Svalbard in general. The hotel consists of three separate wooden buildings which resembles a Cowboy town from the Far West days. The accomodation is simple but functional, although the rooms could have been a tad larger. The restaurant is well decorated. Don't expect big city modernity, Svalbard is not... More

Small and cozzy place for overnighting in Longyearbyen. Not super cheap but you can save some money anyway,comparing to the prices at another places at Svalbard. We had very basic room with 2 bunk beds, I would say it was very little space for our suitecases and other stuff (like cloth and cosmetic). We thing we missed most of all... More

When traveling in the arctic, you need to be prepared to make some changes to your regular lifestyle. Mary Ann's is a good place to start as it is definitely different from your average hotel. The first oddity is the way it is layed out. From reception, you turn right to reach one set of guest rooms or left and... More
