Spitsbergen Hotel

The hotel was originally built in 1947 as an accommodation and dining area for employees of the Store Norske Spitsbergen Coal Company. It was also the company’s official representational building. Its interior and architecture made it Longyearbyen’s grandest construction. The hotel has been extensively refurbished over the years but is preserved and decorated using its history. It’s well worth walking through the corridors and public areas to look at the historical photographs and pictures, old maps and newspaper stories. It is situated on “The Hill”, offering great views of Longyearbyen town as well as the Lars- and Longyear glacier.

The hotel has 88 rooms, 5 suites and superior rooms. All rooms are of high standard and several of them are decorated using historic interiors. All rooms have a coffee machine, bathrobes and slippers. Spitsbergen Hotel is a non-smoking hotel.

The restaurant “Funktionærmessen” was opened in 2000, and has a fantastic view. The restaurant gets its inspiration from the French kitchen, and you will discover a carefully planned selection of wines and dishes that tempt you with both taste and appearance. At the hotel’s Funken Bar you can enjoy drinks, tasty snacks or something from the pub menu. This is a nice place to relax in pleasant surrounding after a day of arctic adventures. On Fridays and Saturdays you can round off your evening with live music from the piano.

Hotelzimmer in Skandinavien sind in der Regel mit zwei Einzelbetten ausgestattet, die zu einem Doppelbett zusammengeschoben werden können. Bitte beachten Sie, dass Einzelzimmer in der Regel kleiner sind als Doppelzimmer und oft mit einer Dusche statt einer Badewanne ausgestattet sind. Dreibett- oder Familienzimmer sind ungewöhnlich in skandinavischen Hotels. Es ist möglich, dass drei Personen ein Zimmer teilen, indem in ein Doppelzimmer ein Zusatzbett gestellt wird. Dadurch kann der zur Verfügung stehende Platz eingeschränkt sein.
