Radisson Blu Longyearbyen--A solid choice in Svalb
I have stayed now both at the Radisson Blu and the Svalbard Hotell on two different trips to Longyearbyen. The Radisson Blu provide an excellent experience with the highlights being the common areas--the restaurant and bar areas. The room (junior suite) was spacious but in need of repair (the shower flooded on the first day from a clogged drain). The Wi-Fi, though, was very unreliable beyond the very basics of Web browsing. Warning to business travels--if you need reliable Internet, the coffee / chocolate shop in town or the lobby of the Svalbard Hotell is the right place. But, the friendly staff and bar keeps definitely made up for whatever minor inconvenience was experienced with the Internet room--and the location is superb. I would definitely recommend this hotel when visiting Longyearbyen.

The hotel location was fantastic. Walking distance to everything. The staff were also spectacular. I asked for help around the toe. and for directions every day and they were patient and knowledgeable. Everyone was English speaking as well. Breakfast was great. Rooms were very clean and quiet. I’ll stay here on my next trip to Svalbard.

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.
