Stayed here for 7 nights in July. A bit outdated rooms but nice large space. Very nice breakfast and friendly staff. Nice sauna, mixed. Someone took the wrong bag (mine) in the luggage room and I would not use that luggage room again since the hotel dont take any responsibility.

When you go to the farthest corners of the planet, luxury and comfort is secondary. The Radisson Blu Polar Hotel claims to be the northernmost full service hotel in the world, choices on this sparsely populated island are a few and this one would by far be the most "luxurious" of the lot. The rooms are strictly average but they... More

This hotel offers facilities to voyagers who have ventured into the Svalbard wilderness, which is very welcome. Our tour guides had an arrangement that we could rest there for the morning before being conveyed to the airport. The dining room has fantastic views and friendly staff, plus a comfortable arm chair area. The shop stocks souvenirs of the polar experience,... More

This hotel is really good value for money and a great choice for a trip to Svalbard (albeit one of a small selection). We visited here in December 2013. The hotel is conveniently located a short (200 metres) walk from the main street of Longyearbyen and easily accessible on the airport bus. The hotel has all of the usual facilities... More

We had to argue with reception to get the room type we booked through booking.com. The room was very basic for the money paid. The breakfast was good and the reception staff were helpful with local attraction queries.

Had a one bedroom flat in the side building, the room is quite basic, however it was warm and reasonably comfortable, the flat comes with kitchen. Breakfast is excellent, lots of local specialities, and plenty other choices. Had dinner in the restaurant, the cod was in season, on chef's recommendation, ordered the tasting menu, it was beautifully done. The hotel... More

Clean rooms with kitchen and utensils, very convenient because eating out in Longyearbyen is very expensive. Friendly reception staff, checkin at 2pm was no problem...they even let you - if possible - checkout at 6pm. I do highly recommend this hotell.

We were staying at the Raddison Blue, Longyearbyen for one night as part of an explorer voyage package. On arrival we were allocated accommodation in the annex adjacent to the main hotel building. The sleeping accommodation consisted of a pull out sofa large enough for one, and a bunk bed in a separate room within the unit. Quality was lacking... More

When you visit Longyearbyen you are astounded by nature's palate. The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance from the shops, the museum and the Arctic terns' breeding area. The views from the dining room are simply spectacular. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, warm (very important when visiting the Arctic) and adequately furnished. The food... More

This is an interesting hotel when you compare it with other Raddison Blue hotels throughout the work. We stayed in a Superior Room so I would say the basic are very basic but you need to remember that you are in the wilderness where the environment needs to come first. The rooms are very comfortable although a good lick of... More
