The room left a little to wish for. The blinds covering the windows let the midnight sun in to my room and the bed was not what I had expected. But the restaurant was nice and the staff was friendly In the middle of the city? Well, you walk for 3 minutes and you have passed through Longyearbyen so yes,...

The placement of this hotel in Longyearbyen is probably the best, and the building itself is impressive. Facilities such as an a la carte restaurant, pub, sauna and more. Great breakfast, and even greater dinner in the Nansen restaurant or Barents pub with the same kitchen. A good but more expensive choice when travelling to Svalbard!

In general the hotel delivers a product that would pass the quality check. However, inconsistency amongst staff in terms of following (or knowing) the policy and the rooms need to be looked after better as they are showing signs of wear and tear. For the price you pay per night one would expect the condition to be better. One very...

This hotel is located across the main shopping street in Longyearbyen. The Standard Double Room is fairly spacious but furnishings in the room and bathroom are old and tired looking and could well do with a replacement. There is a small Nespresso coffee machine in the room as well as a small television. It costs about KR 160 by taxi...

The location can't be bad as there is hardly anything in this place in any case. One roads and a few restaurants and shops. That 's it. People come here for one or two nights in the way to their ship. There is nothing much to do and the place is tiny.

The hotel was perfect, not luxurious, but perfect. The view of the snow-capped mountains when we walked into the lobby was spectacular. The hotel was within walking distance to Longyearben. The room was basic and clean. The shades over the windows only partially diluted the sunlight. I found it difficult to sleep because the room was still bright. We brought...

Stayed here overnight on the way to the Arctic. It is comfortable, the staff is friendly and accomodating. Free WiFi, a little slow, but totally understandable. Taxi or bus drop you at the front door. A good choice.

We stayed here for three nights, room 2001. Room was located in a building separated from the main hotel, Spitsbergen Travel was there on the ground floor. With a view over Adventdfjord. Somewhat difficult to carry heavy luggage up to the building along an outside flight of stairs made of rubble and wood! Room was spacious and well furnished, double...

Radisson Longyearbyen does not have the pretention to be a leading hotel of the world. It just gives the best of what you can expect at this latitude. Keep your mind openned and remember where you are (a map will help!). The evening buffet or a la carte offers are convenient for those who chose to stay at the hotel....
