Radisson Blu Polar Hotel

Stay at the world’s northernmost full service hotel in the heart of Longyearbyen. The hotel was completed in March 1995. One of its wings was the hotel for the American sponsors during the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, and afterwards transported to Svalbard. The hotel has been completely renovated in 2015, in a pure Arctic style with references to the Polar explorers.

The hotel has 95 rooms whereof 67 standard rooms, 27 junior suites (four-bed rooms) and 1 suite. All rooms are well equipped with en-suite bathrooms, TV, coffee machine and mini bar. The service section containing the restaurant and lobby was designed by the Polish architect Krystjan Dolatowski. His inspiration taken from the mountain Hiorthfjellet gave rise to the design of the high ceiling, giving the restaurant an almost sacral atmosphere with mountains greeting you as you walk into the room. The hotel’s restaurant, Restaurant Nansen, features a panoramic view of the Isfjord and Hiorthfjellet mountain. The restaurant has a varied and tempting à la Carte menu featuring Arctic dishes like seal, reindeer, whale and arctic char. The hotel’s pub Barentz Pub & Spiseri is where both local residents and tourists meet in informal surroundings and often features live music on the weekends. In Barentz Pub & Spiseri you may also order meals like steaks, burgers and our popular pizza.

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.
