I stayed at this hotel just a week ago, and it was absolutely lovely! The Congac-hems they have was a good place to relax, the room was always clean, the breakfast was awesome and the people working there was helpful and always smiling.

And the food on Kroa was amazing!

I will come back here!

Had a lovely time at this hotel in Svalbard. Small, personable service. Happy, interested staff. Decent, Norwegian breakfasts. The rooms are furbished in with a Trapper's theme, but have all modern comforts.

In such a remote area The Trappers' Hotel is a real gem.
Wood is everywhere in this hotel making the atmosphere very warm and welcoming and the rooms full of character.
Breakfast is excellent
We loved the Hotel and I can highly recommend this lodge...It's the perfect place to stay in a unique landscape.

An excellent hotel with friendly personell. I can warmly recommend this hotel to couples and families. Inside it looks like and old logghouse. The rooms do not have televisions, but who needs one in Svalbard, there is so much to do and see in surrounding

Stayed here for a few nights and booked activities through them. One of the venders that they booked our activity with changed things and there wasn't any communication to us, leaving us in a pinch. They did a great job of finding us a guide even though there were 3000 people in on cruise ships and did not charge us any more for a private guide then our original price (they spent 2 hours plus on the phone). The hotel has a great breakfast and common room. I would stay here again and book activities through them.
