We stayed at the Svalbard lodge for 4 nights whilst visiting Spitsbergen. The apartments were spacious, warm and comfortable and very good if you were wanting to self cater and have a base to come back to in between tours. Its well located to explore the town and very conveniant to the supermarket. The hotel and lodge breakfast is very... More

The lodge is a good place if you are staying with a family. The apartments are spacious and with good facilities. We were at the time where there is no darkness and the blinds did a good job of keeping the light out and allowing us a god night sleep. Breakfast at the Svalbar was good and with a good... More

This apartment block is located on the main shopping street in Longyearbyen. There are no lifts to the upper floors so a major disadvantage is one has to carry their luggage with them. Breakfast is not included in the apartment rates and is served at the Svalbar restaurant on the ground floor. Food variety is good and healthy. There is... More

An apartment with two bedrooms was perfect for our purpose with three generations. Fully equipped kitchen and WiFi was just what we needed. The WiFi was unfortunately somewhat unstable. If you do not want to make your own breakfast, you can just go to ground floor and have a good breakfast at Svalbar. Book the breakfast in advance and you... More

We stayed 4 nights in this hotel in the end og March 2014. Airport Shuttle drops you off right by the entrance to the hotel, but you have to collect your keys at nearby hotel (Svalbard Hotel). The check in went smoothly without any delay. We were really impressed with the apartment. We stayed at 301 on the top floor.... More

I took a small group of astronomers to Svalbard for the Total Eclipse in March 2015 and managed to secure us three apartments in the Svalbard Lodge two years in advance. The main hotels in the Longyearbyen had been block booked by a couple of major travel companies so we were lucky to get any accommodation but even if we... More

The apartment was nice and spacious, with two bedrooms, although one of them used to be a storeroom, which they have transformed into a bedroom. the beds where fantastic to sleep in, the duvet was fluffy out of this world, and the pillow fantastic. The apartment has a simple standard, but you're not there to spend so much time at... More

Our apartment was spacious and well-equipped.The view from our apartment was nice. Located on the main road and just 3 minutes away from the supermarket of the town, this place is really convenient. Airport buses stop right in front of the Lodge. We checked in at Svalbard Hotell. The receptionist was really helpful. Noisy neighbours and dirty staircase though.

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
