    Our stay was actually at the Funken Lodge, where we were transferred after we were told the Blu Polar would be under construction during our stay. From start to finish, this hotel was amazing on all levels. The design, the staff, the food, the room, the location--everything was magical. The breakfast spread was out of this world, the beds heavenly, the bar perfect for late night drinks or mid-afternoon "treats" and relaxing by the fire. There is nothing that I would change about our stay or about this place, and we can't wait to return!

    The best hotel in Longyearbyen.

    Outstanding breakfast! I enjoyed it everyday. You are requested to remove your boots before entering the hotel. No one bothers you if you don't.

    Stay at Radisson

    Only 1 person checking us in at 3am when probably 10 couple got off bus. Central heating system not working or not working very well (told heating guy not working at weekend but did not improve on Monday or Tuesday morning). At times during our stay it got down to -30c outside.

    Overall a good place to stay!

    Hotel is centrally placed, breakfast very good, has nice bar and restaurant area with good views. Sitting area in the main building is a little limited as its used by most of the cruise agencies and often is full. Overall the hotel is expensive (but then so is Norway and Svalbard) but it was a good place to stay.Good wifi.

    Comfortable base to explore Svalbard

    Overall a nice and comfortable hotel, the main building is recently renovated and looks good. The other building (where most of the junior suites are based) is a bit older. The rooms were comfortable, only the bathroom is a bit basic. The jacuzzi didn't work when I was there. The restaurant is nice but has a rather limited menu, there is also a bar/pub with burgers, pizzas etc. Overall a good hotel and a good base camp if you want to explore Svalbard.
