It's a bit of a walk into town but it is more then worth it! The staff is super nice and helpful. The free internet in the lobby is a nice thing to have. There was free coffee and tea all day long and in the afternoons also free make-your-own-waffles behind the lobby bar. Great place to stay before heading out to explore the area or while exploring since they are offering many trips, organized through the hotel as well. Breakfast was good food but average service which is fine if you are like me and don't really want people around you this early in the morning. The room I was in had a good size and was nice and warm with a well equipped bathroom. The view up the valley is great and when walking further up the road at off peak hours you have a chance of seeing a polar fox up close! Great hotel to stay when in Longyearbyen!
