On the end of the main street of the tiny town - easy walk to the supermarket, post office, shops, restaurants, museums etc.
Great WiFi and good free breakfast buffet diagonally across the street at Svalbar, the restaurant/bar at their sister hotel. The Trappers Hotel is just opposite - they have an awesome restaurant called Kroa.
Front office was super nice and helpful - office hours 7.30am-8pm (not 4pm as a previous reviewer mentioned) which was sufficient for us.
Clean, simple rooms with keyless code entry. Airport bus stops two steps away, although if you're more than 2 people, a taxi is a better deal.
