    A quirky authentic taste of polar life

    This is a quirky unique old hotel with a real as well as fun sense of the past in what is really a frontier town. It is in the old now more industrial part of the town which is less attractive but close to the docks and a short walk over a glacial stream into the newer part of town. The airport bus stops at the door. It was comfortable and the staff were so helpful. The dining room, a mini hot house in this stark Arctic setting, was amazing and quirky and the breakfasts and dinner excellent. There is an old fashioned feel to the place but so bright and colourful to ward off no doubt long months of darkness and the stark barren mountains that rear over the town. One of our more delightful and memorable places we have stayed.

    Rustic and friendly

    Affordable and central. Super rustic and quirky, a great conversion of what’s basically an old miners camp.

    Stay here.

    The most cozy hotel I've ever been in. The hotel lobby feels like I'm back at my grandma's house. Also the people are super friendly and help you book adventures in Svalbard. Town is just .5km away over a bridge it makes for a fun little adventure to get groceries. The free breakfast spread is freaking incredible too. A wonderful start to your day.

    Kindness and comfort at the end of the world.

    This place was amazing to stay at? The location is beautiful and it’s very close to the city center there is a bus that takes you right to the entrance and tours come pick you up from the gates. The hotel itself is beautiful the rooms are clean and the common spaces comfortable. I stayed in a miners room which was small and cozy and served as a great base to get out and explore Svalbard. You don’t want to be in your room long while you’re here. The food in the green house was fantastic, especially the breakfast. The staff was incredible. Nicola Boyana Tina Vitalii and the cooks are all kind friendly people who take an interest in you having a great stay, they really made my stay at Mary Anns wonderful. I’ve stayed at much fancier more expensive places and gotten service and comfort not nearly close to this. I highly recommend staying here.

    Loved this quirky hotel with lots of history and character. It is a converted mine barracks with lots of original photos and mining gear. It has a restaurant and bar on site. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to make your trip the best. Very convenient to the city center as well. Highly recommend!

    A unique and delightful place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, always pleasant and helpful with excellent food. I will not consider staying anywhere else on my next visit to Longyearbyen.

    Outstanding customer care. Couldn’t have done anything more to make us feel more welcome. Kinga in particular - and her colleagues in general - went above and beyond the call of duty.
