We didn't stay at this hotel, but had a good buffet lunch one Sunday. They offered a broad selection of food - salads, meat, vegetables, and desert. Friends also enjoyed the shops in the hotel and the selection of polar merchandise.

I stayed here as a special treat for myself to see in the New Year. I've been to Svalbard before, but never during 24 hour darkness. It's spooky and at the same time excellent, in a truly odd way. If you want to feel like Amundsen or Scott of the (Ant)Arctic, this is the place to go. One of my... More

This may be the only place in town. Our reservations were part of a package along with a trip to Salvard. Everything in the room was adequate. The food was adequate. Take your own if you want decaf coffee, though, they don't have the stuff. They also only provide soap, no hand lotion or shampoo. Also no wash clothes so... More

This hotel is I assume the largest in town located at the Fjord end of town adjacent to Spitzbergen Travel and near the excellent Svalbard Museum. Our room was on the 1st level, one level below the reception are. No lifts, no porters, no assistance. The room was large and well appointed though we had keep our curtains closed as... More

Me and my best friend have spent 4 days and 3 nights in Longyearbyen. I knew little about the place, so I didn't come with any expectations. I like to start things with a blank card. Even if I wanted to be naughty and pick on something, I simply couldn't. The location is amazing and as soon as you enter... More

I normally love Radisson hotels, but on this occasion I was very disappointed and certainly wished I had booked at the Hotel Longyearbyen. Our twin room turned out to be an 'apartment' in a building away from the main hotel and there was no lift to take us to the second floor -- with a lot of heavy bags. The... More

The location is superb, the facilities are great and the staff are outstanding. Spitsbergen Travel excursions are located in the alternate wing of the hotel, for those looking to book experiences while in Svalbard. The Svalbard Museum is 3 minutes down the hill towards the water, in a stunning setting. The place is top notch.

Stayed in hotel for 1 night before joining our expedition. We had a room in the annex which was enormous and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful and despite being at 78 degrees north, free WI FI. Breakfast the following morning had a good choice and the view from the dining room was amazing. Hotel did not had... More

Hotel was a good standard radisson. It was interesting because you have to take off your shoes before you enter (which is to keep all the dirt and dust out). We went with a 2 & 4 yr old. Staff was nice, but uninformed about places to go and eat (most front desk staff seemed to be new). We ate... More

I understand that Longyearbyen is a long way from anywhere, but there isn't really isn't an excuse for the shoddy rooms at this price. We had a little apartment type, 214 with small kitchen, which is useful if you are vegi, as most restaurants have a lot of meat on the menu. So i could at least make soup and... More
