My 3rd time in Longyearbyen, first at Mary'Ann's Polarrigg. First time travellers need to re-adjust their perception of "Hotel". this is different, but as good as is to find in Longyearbyen. Fantastic staff make it a great place. Location not the best if in Winter, but in Summer there is a shortcut in to Town. I can recommend a stay here, so don't even hesitate - if you are thinking of visiting Longyearbyen, just book it!

Room Tip: No tips, it is what is it is, as per the website.

It is amaizing hotel with polar bear inside the restaurant. Very nice and helpfull girls in reception. Rooms in the main built a little bit small, but hall is ok. There is a 1 km outsite of main road but in the summer time is not problem. In the hotel there is the most baeutiful garden on the island.

It's more like a hostel standard, but nice and cozy. The rooms are small and basic but if you are sightseeing and gone for most of the day it's just perfect. There is a nice living room when you can rest, read a book, eat your meal or talk to the other guests. It's great with the kitchen where you can cook your own meal as Svalbard is an expensive experience.

At first view you may choose to stay somewhere else, but once you step through the doors this is by far the best place to stay in town. It has a traditional lodge feel, loads of history on the walls, great bar, fabulous restaurant with great food (the Reindeer steak is to die for) and superb staff.

We stayed earlier in the week in another hotel that was the typical clinical chain type and on paper the best in town, however the Polarrigg is brilliant and I would really recommend it totally!

We stayed 6 nights here. We had a small room with a private bath and it was very expensive. I expected high prices in Longyearbyen however. The really bad thing was the noise. We could never sleep the whole night because you can hear the outside door open and close and people talking outside as well as every car or taxi that comes thru the parking lot. We also had to ask about room service because after 4 days, we still had none! That did get fixed after our complaint. I would suggest you pick another site.
