Pros: Very attentive and knowledgeable staff, unique atmosphere, great expeditions, plenty of cool places to read, hangout, play games, watch the sky, etc.
Centrally located in downtown Longyearbyen
Cons: Room was a bit difficult if I'd had a partner come with me as they were very small (yet comfortable) bunk-beds, also, you have to remove your shoes every time you come in, and it would've been nice if the hotel would provide "indoor" shoes to all the guests, as I was okay with removing my shoes, but didnt like walking around in my socks everywhere I went in the hotel.
Pros: The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Each room is unique in design and decorated/constructed using driftwood and timber. Good sized bathroom with in-floor heating. Be forewarned that rooms do not have TV, telephone, fridge, minibar or wardrobes. I did not consider this to be a negative point, though some people may.Loved the glass-ceiling attic (cognac room)!
Pros: Friendly staff. Interior in wonderful woodbuild; feels really authentic.
Cons: There is none.
Pros: nice and clean hotell whit good staff and god location
Cons: could be a better variation of the breakfast meny

Pros: staff were efficient and friendly arrival and checkout well organised. rooms warme and comfortable
Pros: The atmosphere and comfort was excellent. Very quiet, a homey feeling.
Cons: Since there is only one flight out from Longyearbyen every day, the check-out on the day of departure should be more flexible, so that it could be postponed until 1 p.m.
Pros: I liked the hotel loby, the staff and location. The room was comfort and pleasent, nothing special. Regular breakfast was good, but the early breakfast for early leavers was a shame. It is not fair to pay so much money for the hotel and to get such a poor breakfast.
Cons: I liked the atmosphere, I liked the loby rooms (three), I liked the staff and the pancake afternon.
