Stay here.
The most cozy hotel I've ever been in. The hotel lobby feels like I'm back at my grandma's house. Also the people are super friendly and help you book adventures in Svalbard. Town is just .5km away over a bridge it makes for a fun little adventure to get groceries. The free breakfast spread is freaking incredible too. A wonderful start to your day.

Kindness and comfort at the end of the world.
This place was amazing to stay at? The location is beautiful and it’s very close to the city center there is a bus that takes you right to the entrance and tours come pick you up from the gates. The hotel itself is beautiful the rooms are clean and the common spaces comfortable. I stayed in a miners room which was small and cozy and served as a great base to get out and explore Svalbard. You don’t want to be in your room long while you’re here. The food in the green house was fantastic, especially the breakfast. The staff was incredible. Nicola Boyana Tina Vitalii and the cooks are all kind friendly people who take an interest in you having a great stay, they really made my stay at Mary Anns wonderful. I’ve stayed at much fancier more expensive places and gotten service and comfort not nearly close to this. I highly recommend staying here.

A quirky authentic taste of polar life
This is a quirky unique old hotel with a real as well as fun sense of the past in what is really a frontier town. It is in the old now more industrial part of the town which is less attractive but close to the docks and a short walk over a glacial stream into the newer part of town. The airport bus stops at the door. It was comfortable and the staff were so helpful. The dining room, a mini hot house in this stark Arctic setting, was amazing and quirky and the breakfasts and dinner excellent. There is an old fashioned feel to the place but so bright and colourful to ward off no doubt long months of darkness and the stark barren mountains that rear over the town. One of our more delightful and memorable places we have stayed.

Very Good 8.0
Rustic and friendly
Affordable and central. Super rustic and quirky, a great conversion of what’s basically an old miners camp.
Stephanie, au2 night trip
Poor 2.0
Expensive, cheap, you better stay somewhere else.
The room was very small. There were almost no closet space, just one small cabinet with only two hangers.Not nearly enough for two adults on a winter trip to Svalbard. Since there were no closet space, the gear and clothes had to lay in the luggage and the window sill. Some basket furniture were occupying half of the free floor space, totally unuseful. The room was overheated, not helped by the piping for the radiators running through the room, and there were no ventilation, in order to cool it down you had to open the windows. Which meant gear stored on the window sill fell out. One electric socket was half way out the wall, and some of lightbulbs were not working. The breakfast was rather simple, one kind of bread, scrambled eggs and not much else. We payed premium. It was not. On the positive side, both kinds of herring sauce was very good, and the staff was nice.
