    Quick weekend get away

    We enjoyed our stay over a long weekend. Hard to have a bad location in Svalbard, but it is a short walk to stores and other restaurants. The staff was extremely helpful providing information and recommendations during our stay. We had a fantastic meal at the Funktionærmessen restaurant our first evening and breakfast was great. Book any tours ahead of time for the best selection and timing.

    Four time visitor to Svalbard recommends Funken

    I have stayed at the Radisson Blu twice and Svalbard Hotell once. By far (and I mean by a lot), Funken is the best--the best reception area, bar (Sergii is the best bartender for sure!), restaurant, library, room--I don't even mind the location. I will definitely stay with you again next year for my 5th visit to Longyearbyen.

    This place is awesome

    Funken Lodge is awesome place and my stay there was great from the welcome drink to checking out. The room was clean, heated, the bed was comfortable and blankets warm (I was there during the winter). The stuff was very friendly and helpful with booking arctic-only adventures. There is also plenty of space for workoholics at the main level - tables, comfy couches and also a fireplace to snuggle by and read a book or talk with fellow travelers. I will be happy to stay there again next time I go to Svalbard. Also, its location of 15 minutes walk (roughly 1km) from the city center is a perfect opportunity for a beautiful walk with views and maybe even meeting a couple of local reindeers! =)

  • 8.0.Very good

    Could be 5 star...but due to service it is 3++

    Very cool hotel, but amazingly bad service in the breakfast area. Nice setup but they do not manage to finish the service delivery. Waiters are checking their phone more then the guests. Maintenance in the windows are bad.... But the product is very fresh and cool. Best place to stay in Longyearbyen, but it cold be a star, now it is more like ok++

    I visited Longyearbyen for the Spitsbergen Marathon (1st June, 2019) and stayed for four nights at the Funken Lodge. I had a wonderful stay. This is a really lovely hotel, above the town with fantastic views of the Isfjorden. The room where you have breakfast - which is also the Funktionaermessen Restaurant - is wonderful, and the food and choices broad and good. The staff were just excellent. I am thinking of doing the marathon again next year just for an excuse to come back and stay here.

    From the minute you arrive to when you leave nothing is too much trouble for the staff. All of the lounge areas are cosy and relaxing. The rooms are well designed, clean and comfortable. All in all a superb hotel.
