Great Location.

This hotel is in a great location with beautiful scenic views of the mountains. The hotel offers many different types of tour packages such as ATV tours, Fjord tour and fossil tours. The main street is right outside the hotel and so it is easy to walk to the different restaurants and stores in the town.

Good restaurant.

The restaurant at the hotel is very popular among guests. The breakfast selection is wide and varied daily and the lunch and supper menus offer a large number of options to choose from. The service is fast and efficient and the staff are very friendly.

Nice rooms.

The rooms available at the Svalbard Hotell are spacious and well-designed. The furniture such as the beds and couches are comfortable and offer the perfect spot to relax. The kitchenettes are well-equipped, some even have a washing machine for your laundry. The rooms are very clean and modern.
