Only 5Km from Longyearbyen airport. Shoes must be left in the entrance as usual in Svalbard. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Rooms not very big but warm, clean and cosy. Breakfast is excellent with lot of choices. Restaurant ( Julebord buffet) had plenty of cold, warm and dessert choices. I liked this hotel .

We were in Longyearbyen for one night prior to joining an Expedition ship for an Arctic adventure, and Radisson Blu was the hotel where our group was to meet... so we selected it as the place to also spend the night.

This is a very nice hotel with an exceptional location in the town centre of Longyearbyen. The hotel is quite modern and stylish. As in many other hotels in Longyearbyen, you need to take of your shoes when entering the hotel (unfortunately not all visitors respects this tradition which results in wet floor and socks from time-to-time). The breakfast, served...

Room 101-123, odd numbers, is placed in the cellar with a view upwards to the parking lot. Avoid these rooms. The shower runs all over the floor, and the drain is located on the highest level. The cleaning of the room wasn't to good, the same empty beer bottle, from the last guest I guess, was still on the floor...

The location of the hotel is good: close to the main street in Longyearbyen. The rooms are nice, although mine was quite cold when I arrived. The breakfast was very nice, and overall the staff was friendly and service-minded.

The Radison Blu is a good hotel with lovely views. Staff very friendly and extremely helpful. Room was of a good standard but sadly not much of a view. We had an evening meal which was from the Buffett and the choice was excellent, breakfast the following morning was also buffett and just as good
