As there were 3 of us and we reckoned we will be exploring the town a fair bit, we found this apartment lodge. The location is central, right in the middle of the town. One could walk within 20-30 minutes to most restaurants and places of sightseeing, as well as to the post office, shopping Sentrum, bank and ATM, and... More

i recently stayed here for three nights (before and after a Svalbard circumnavigation expedition). It was great for two couples, since we were able to cook for ourselves and do laundry. Everything was nearby. When we returned from our trip we were able to get an early check in (we got in to Longyearbyen at 8a) so this was especially... More

Two couples traveled together and this was perfect for us.. it was actually cheaper for us to rent a two bedroom apartment than two separate rooms in a hotel in town. There is a small but very adequate kitchen making breakfast quick and affordable. We had a lovely view of reindeer on the mountain side as we recapped our day's... More

We booked through Svalbardbooking our accommodation : Svalbard Lodge plus 2 trips: husky trip on wheels and boat trip to Esjmark glacier and Barendsburg. All were arranged fantastic. Based on previous reviews we asked the family appartment, not directly above the Svalbar. Appartment was great and no noise during the night. All facilities were available, incl great shower, dishwasher and... More

We booked the Svalbard Lodge since it has good features like separate bedrooms, shower, free wifi and kitchen. Upon arrival, the apartment was very clean and ready to use. Apart from the sometimes not working wifi, we didn't find any negative points.

This lodge was fine for the basics. We had a family of 7, so the two bedrooms worked out fine. It was not fancy by any means and there was no ambiance, just a basic dormitory-style apartment. After checking out the lodge next door (where Kroa Restaurant is located), we would definitely switch to that lodge the next time.

Arrived here at 1 a.m & left at 11a.m. the same day. We needed accommodation for one night for 4 of us before joining a cruise ship & this was a suitable & good value option. The apartment was clean, the beds comfortable & the shower was hot & powerful. The decor was basic but for us it didn't matter.... More

Large amount of space though many little details were lacking. We were on the 3rd floor and the music from 1st floor bar was vibrating stuff on shelves...bring earplugs is right. Trappers Hotel next door had better decor and personal touches.

First, location and space is perfect...they got that one right. Right in the heart of town.....and having two bedrooms was nice. Seems more appropriately for a family with a couple of kids....kitchen area and wash machine...nice but something we really didn't need for a few day stay. Downside? Seems to be constructed by poor quality contractors with no standards to... More

Svalbard is not a cheap holiday destination so even the "good value" accommodation is going to be pretty pricey. Three nights at Svalbard Lodge cost me 7650NOK (around $1300USD) for a booking made a month in advance. If you are visiting Svalbard I recommend you try to secure accommodation well in advance as there were only two options when I... More
