Stayed at this Radisson "Blu" hotel for two nights in February and it is mixed bag. While it may be one of the few hotels in Svalbard, Carlson-Rezidor must be desperate when they allow this quality level hotels into the Blu brand. The location is good for the village and within walking distance to the grocery store and the small...

We (couple, almost 50) stayed 4 nights in one of the Junior suites at the Radisson Blu and were entirely happy. (One minor detail: We had no use for our room's nespresso machine and would have preferred a kettle; however, the hotel lets you fill your own thermos with boiling water at the breakfast buffet (which is huge and offers...

At this Hotel you pay for location, this is a very standard Hotel that offers you almost no feeling of something special. The interior is quite boring, but i was there around Christmas and i gave me a very Christmassy feeling. When paying over 200Euros a night for a minimum you want something more than a basic Hotel, you want...

Comfortable room, great breakfast and able to see the northern light from the window. What else? Ah, yes! Cozy atmosphere, great attention and warm. The bar also has excelent food & drinks, and there are common spaces to just relax.

I recently (Jan 2017) stayed here for 5 nights instead of 4 as our flights were cancelled due to poor weather, the hotel staff jumped into action rebooking us back into our original rooms and providing us with a 2 course dinner, very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were adequate although I would have preferred a kettle instead of...

A very nice Hotel, with a lot to offer! They have a nice restaurant call Nansen, where they serve Arctic dishes like Svalbard Reindeer, Whale, and Seal! And the food they serve in a stylish way, is excellent! Compliment to the chef!! There are also a bar call Barentz, where you can imagine the huntsmen come in for a beer,...

I'm just finishing a five night stay at the Radisson Blu Polar hotel in Longyearbyen. The hotel is the main hotel on Svalbard and is close to the shops, restaurants and supermarket. The hotel has a small entranceway where everyone removes their boots, then a modest lobby area with a nice stuffed polar bear (one of many you will see...

You travel to the far north to experience some of the unique things the place has to offer, this simple seems to have been missed by the hotel staff. We stayed there for 4 days in Dec and arrived in the time of the year with 24 hrs darkness and hence prime for viewing the Northern Lights. There is a...

Stayed for a week in a junior suite over New Year and, given the remote location, was very, very pleasantly surprised. Rooms spacious and clean, staff were lovely and super helpful.
