This is a great hotel. The room was light, bright and modern with plenty of space and a big bathroom. It was across the path from the main reception area and restaurant and close to everything that Longyearbyen has to offer including cafes and a supermarket that seems to sell

I can't fault this hotel. Very comfortable, with friendly staff, an excellent breakfast buffet and a nice wood-burning stove in the lounge to warm your feet at. In the evenings there is also a high-class restaurant and a bar. We were there five days and were sorry to leave.
