The Coal Miners Cabin is a cozy hotel. No television is included, which is good. It encourages you to go more outdoors and explore. There is so much to see!

Good value for an overnight stay
The breakfast buffet was great. Front desk staff was helpful. The hotel is 20-30 minutes walk from town center but the airport shuttle makes it very easy to get to/from the airport. The only downside for us was that the shower ran out of hot water in just a couple of minutes.

Great price for a place to stay
It’s the second time I have stayed at the coal miners. You couldn’t ask for better staff and the restaurant is great as well. Rooms are quite, easy to access, nicely heated and clean. I would recommend them.

Excellent value for money for an overnight stop.

Good 6.0
Good value guesthouse let down by maintenance issu
Not sure if we caught them at a bad time, but there were seemingly issues with the plumbing throughout our stay, which meant that one side of the building had no working showers or toilets. Added to this, there was only sporadic hot water in the showers which is far from ideal when it's -20 centigrade outside. The hand towels in the showers were often empty too. On the positive side, the room was spotlessly clean, the breakfast was nice and the bar in the main building is a nice place to spend time after a day out on the ice.

Very nice stay
Really great stay- great place, great service, great price. Couldn't fault it. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Short walk to town but perfect if you don't mind walking and like a more secluded spot

Modern feel in an epic location.
Surprising good value given the location. Excellent wifi. Nice rooms - too warm at night. Lots of bathrooms on each landing. Charming staff.

Great spot!
This was a lot cheaper than anywhere else we could find in longyearbyen so we were not expecting great things. However, it was lovely, brilliant location, lovely bar/restaurant, very comfy beds, lovely and cozy and lots of bathrooms so sharing with other guests was no problem. Great little kitchen also and the shared living space was very nice and really very beautiful. Short walk into town but thats a good thing as you can see the whole town and take amazing pictures. Will absolutly be back again soon!
