Certificate of Excellence
Svalbard Hotel consists of three separate buildings; The new main building, opened in February 2016, offers 22 double rooms inkl 2 handicap friendly rooms and 2 family rooms, 3 superior double rooms, 5 Delux double rooms and 1 Polar bear suite. The second building, located right across the street, is the previous main building with 17 double rooms, including 2 handicap-friendly rooms. This part of the hotel also offers conference facilities for small groups. In the new building, we have a wine bar with quality wines from all over the world, beer from the local Svalbard Brewery and the new Restaurant at Svalbard hotel offers a soup buffet-lunch, and an Asian-nordic inspired a la carte at night. The third building - Svalbard Lodge, offers 10 apartments located just about 50 meters from Svalbard hotel. The apartments have fully equipped kitchens, washing machine and all the necessities you might need for a longer stay or to live a normal family life on you vacation. Both the Hotel and Lodge are situated in the heart of Longyearbyen, only a few meters from various restaurants, bars, shopping center and souvenir shops.
