2/10 Poor

Bad management. Bad hotel.
Unfriendly check in. Didn't told us that the room was in another building. Restaurant not available on the first evening. Priority is given to the boat groups (they literally own the hotel with their luggages everywhere). We went to the hotel pub, dark, bad and with broken seats. When asking for a booking for the next evening I was first told it was to late to book. I felt really unwelcomed. Room with awful view on parking. Access to the room thought marketing and accounting offices. No holiday spirit, no adventure spirit here. Sauna is closed every Monday but nothing tells it. You should guess and plan another day. No business room. When sitting in the breakfast room I was rudely told they need to prepare the tables for the evening. Just go to the oublic library, Radisson doesn't want you to be comfy here! REALLY BAD. probably due to a bad management as location is good. Please Radisson change the manager. There are now much better hotels in Svalbard.
