Could be 5 star...but due to service it is 3++
Very cool hotel, but amazingly bad service in the breakfast area. Nice setup but they do not manage to finish the service delivery. Waiters are checking their phone more then the guests. Maintenance in the windows are bad.... But the product is very fresh and cool. Best place to stay in Longyearbyen, but it cold be a star, now it is more like ok++

Longyearbyen is great
Room was small, but big enough, clean, and had everything I needed. It's located on top of a hill, so the walk can be a bit challenging to get to other locations, especially if it's icy. The restaurant in the hotel is good, but overpriced.

The Funken Lodge is a great place to stay in Longyearbyen. The room was very comfortable with good amenities. They have an inviting lounge area with a fire and many separate seating areas. The staff are very helpful and nice. The restaurant is good.

This place is awesome
Funken Lodge is awesome place and my stay there was great from the welcome drink to checking out. The room was clean, heated, the bed was comfortable and blankets warm (I was there during the winter). The stuff was very friendly and helpful with booking arctic-only adventures. There is also plenty of space for workoholics at the main level - tables, comfy couches and also a fireplace to snuggle by and read a book or talk with fellow travelers. I will be happy to stay there again next time I go to Svalbard. Also, its location of 15 minutes walk (roughly 1km) from the city center is a perfect opportunity for a beautiful walk with views and maybe even meeting a couple of local reindeers! =)
