Take a look around

Our hotel is reminiscent of the true feeling of Svalbard in the mining days, but not just inside:

Walking through our gate you will be greeted by an old miner, looking towards the Gruvebus (once used to drive workers to the mines – but now our smoking shelter).

Beside that you can see our beautiful boat where guests can climb the stairs to the deck and enjoy a seat (and perhaps a drink from the bar) overlooking Longyearbyen and admiring the surrounding mountains.

The outer buildings are decorated with wooden planks and fencing materials salvaged from out-of-use mines. We hope you will love the atmosphere we strive to create inside and outside of our authentic hotel.
