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

If you stay over weekend you will not be able to sleep if you are the slightest sensitive to noice because its like trying to sleep in the bar! Other thank that the place is ok. In summer its light all the time because there are No blinds. Other than that the apartement is ok and very sentral.

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

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
