This is likely the best value accommodation you'll find in Longyearbyen year-round. I stayed for about a week in January, and it's about a 30-minute walk from city center. With that said, it's actually quite a pleasant, invigorating walk so I actually really enjoyed that...More

This hotel has so much character. Although it is a long walk to/from town centre and Internet wifi is very weak but rooms and shared bathrooms are clean. More importantly, staff here (from front-of-house to housekeepers) are sweet and super helpful. Freddie at the reception...More

You get what you have payed for! It's not a hotel it's a hostel! The beds are fantastic, and the rooms are good heated! The showers can have cold weather, buts that's how it is on Svalbard. Just time your showers better!

Clean, warm, hospitable and very friendly staff. Coal Miners’ is a super nice place, and the central house offers excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The cabins themselves are with shared kitchen and bathroom, but otherwise a great place to stay. 20mins walk from city.

There are a number of houses you may be accommodated and therefore kitchen facilities may vary. Rooms and the rest of the facilities (all communal) kitchen, lounge, shower/toilet, laundry - all kept very clean. Unfortunately, the kitchen has only (very) basic facilities - kettle, stove...More

Hi, We really appreciate you taking the time to write such a nice descriptive review. Yes, the walk up the valley to Coal Miners' Cabins is lovely when you've got the snowclad mountains on both sides! About the juices, I'll forward this to kitchen and...More

It seems that we have many ambassadors explaining that it is not really that far into town, and that the walk is often enjoyable with reindeer, foxes and grouse in the area. For those who want to be more mobile, there is... More
