Lucky!
Breakfast was good with a lot of choices. We were lucky enough to see aurora light from our hotel window!

Noisy and shower leaks
Shower leaks all over the floor. The bath just leaked behind the wall and came out the bottom. Reported to the reception but it wasn't fixed and room was serviced very late. Rooms noisy from above and people walking around

A Must Visit!
Svalbard is a truly amazing place and definitely one for the bucket list. The hotel is not upto usual Radisson standards but then given the location you can't really expect it to be. Rooms were clean and have everything you need for a short stay. Staff were excellent (all but one miserable receptionist). The food and bar were very good. Airport bus stops right outside the hotel which is handy.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Great option for a stay in Longyearbyen
I was impressed by the hotel and friendly service at this hotel. The breakfast was great and the restaurant has a really impressive view. The bar was also appreciated with good food (burgers etc.) if you don't feel like going out in the cold. There's a convenient pick-up for the airport bus and various day trips directly outside the hotel, though I suspect that's also true of several other hotels in Longyearbyn. The rooms are good although the highlight is very much the lobby, restaurant, and location. Overall, highly recommended.

Expensive
Hotel is rather ordinary and rooms are a bit basic for the money. Not much of a sitting/ lounge area. Breakfast and dinner are pretty good though. Hotel can get very busy if one of the ships is sailing that day as non-resident guests loiter in the lobby and small lounge.
