There are conventional hotels in Longyearbyen (e.g. Radisson Blue) so you can stay there if you really do not like different experiences, but if you do, then you have to stay here. It really looks like a trapper's lodge, everything is made of recycled packaging (coffee bags on all walls) but it is extremely comfortable and full of atmosphere. Rooms are good, the staff is extremely friendly and efficient and breakfast was pretty good too. We really enjoyed our stay here. They say they do not have a restaurant and strictly speaking that is true but the Kroa is in the same building (just go out of the hotel door and enter again by another side door) and there is a pub next door so that is not much of a problem.
