We stayed here as our expedition was leaving from this hotel the next day. It was really central, the room was good, free wifi,and a really good breakfast. Near to all the 'sights' in Longyearbyen, so very happy with our stay.

The Radison Blu is a good hotel with lovely views. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Room was of a good standard but sadly not much of a view. We had an evening meal which was from the Buffett and the choice was excellent, breakfast the following morning was also buffett and just as good

This is an excellent larger facility in the far northern Island of Spitsbergen and in the village of Longyearbyen. It is at latitude 78.13 north, so it is on the tunda. It is a full service hotel with a staff that are very helpful and caring. The rooms are nice with amenities that you might expect of a good hotel.... More

This is a 3 star hotel with very limited services. We had a junior suite which was situated in another building. Crossing over in the august weather was fine but i would hate to do that in the extreme weather. The suite itself felt like a basic room with very basic amenities. Breakfast spread is good.

Nice hotel. Ask for a main floor room overlooking the Fjord and mountains. Excellent breakfast. There are no elevators so if you have trouble with stairs stay on the main floor. Nice staff, tour operators will pick you up at the main door which is really convenient. Shuttle bus from the airport drops you right at the hotel as well.... More

We stayed for two night in the Radisson Blu Polar Hotel: overall it was a good stay, the hotel is very central in Longyearbyen, breakfast has a vast choice, but it is very expensive for what you get..

Overall the hotel was as expected for a remote location with limited options. The most disappointing aspect of the hotel is that most of the Carlson benefits do not seem to apply. Hotel was booked on the Radisson website so had no indication that they were playing by their own rules. Most irritating is the hard line on the 11am... More

This is a Radisson in name but in Longyearbyen, Salvard. The location is central and you may walk to the dock with your luggage if you are so inclined to walk. The staff is young and very friendly willing to go out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast is typical with all you can eat and very savory... More

Third visit to the area. Usually we have stayed at Svalbard Hotel, but they were booked so stayed here. More of a hotel feel vs the homey feel of Svalbard Hotel. Check in was slow and they needed more help at reception. Spacious ,very quiet, clean rooms. Good shower (always important!). Had dinner in the bar and pizza was very... More

I was here four nights. Needless to say, it was expensive since it's in Norway, and even more so because it's in Svalbard. I was surprised at the basic, and fairly small, room. No minibar, no safe, and little room for storage. And, there is no telephone!! And no tv. Bathtub with shower was nice, but towels were very thin.... More
