I loved this hotel. The hotel is built like a hunters' shack (although a very comfortable one) and was a far cry from corporate, big chain blandness. We were lucky enough to get a suite, with my friend's bed up in a loft.
The staff were friendly and helped us book all our excursions (as well as filling up my hot water bottle :-) )
Breakfast was Norwegian style, with cold meat, cheese, smoked salmon, as well as bread and cereals. Dinner-wise I heartily recommend the restaurant attached to the hotel, round the back. Svalbar (in front of the hotel) was nowhere near as good.

Despite its rusticity, Basecamp Hotel offers high quality accommodation with unique style! ... more less
