I stayed at this excellent Hotel for 3 weeks (late February to March), and it would have to be one of the best places i have ever stayed at. Breakfast was delicious, bed was comfy and the rooms were always in clean condition (as was the whole hotel). When it comes to location it is a convenient 2 minute walk to the coop supermarket and all the shops, anything you need is close. I Have to say the greatest part of the hotel is the top notch staff, always up for a chat, a laugh and always available to help you out with any information you need to have a great time in Longyearbyen. To me this makes a holiday/adventure a memorable one. If you are travelling up here after isolation and lock downs then this is the place you have to stay at, you wont regret it and this Hotel deserves all the great business it receives.

We had a great stay. The rooms are small but more than adequate. The bed is great. The bathroom was nice, but lacks a place to put things. There is room for shelves - just need to be done. Breakfast was great. Location is perfect except if you take the airport bus, you have to take your luggage across the room on a bridge. Just as cheap to take a taxi. But the best part of the hotel was the staff. I have rarely met such nice people working in a hotel. They were warm, knowledgeable and extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend The Vault.

We spent three nights here on the weekend of Friday 8th November, 2019. Lovely hotel, close to town, lovely room although a bit on the small side but adequate. Very comfortable beds. Great shower room. Clean. Sufficient breakfast in the morning. Friendly and helpful staff. Would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it

Just had the pleasure of staying at the Svalbard Hotell The Vault for three nights and recommend it highly. The hotel is in a great location—right across the street from the supermarket and most shops/restaurants/pubs. The hotel itself was very cozy, with a lovely little lobby area where you could relax and enjoy a warm drink. There was a nice breakfast selection as well and the staff was extremely friendly, even lending out yellow reflector vests for safety in the dark season. The room is small but very comfortable, and the big windows are a nice touch—I loved falling asleep looking outside at the mountains. I miss it already and will be back for sure!

This is your classic Scandinavian minimalist hotel. Very comfortable modern hotel. The rooms are on the European small side with minimal circulation space in the room. However, it was well equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, pleasant outlook and blockout curtains (for the 24 hours of summer daylight). I had a restful night's sleep. The staff were friendly and obliging. The hotel is centrally located with everything within a 5-7 walk. The breakfast was fine - the standard Scandinavian fare. Overall, a good choice for the night before joining a tour. I would be happy to return.
