hotels near the port

I am doing an Arctic cruise in September and would like to know a cheap hotel within walking distance of the port

Cheap does not really apply to Longyearbyen. Mary Ann's Polar Rigg would be the closest, but it is more of a hostel than a hotel. 1,4 km from the harbour so not sure if you would consider that walking distance with luggage. Basecamp and Radisson Blu come in at second closest, but neither are cheap.

Use google maps/street view and the map search on a booking engine like booking.com and you will find prices/availability for your dates.

It's also worth noting that for almost any cruise, they'll arrange transport as a group to the port from a central hotel - usually either Spitsbergen Hotel or the Radisson Blu and in fact will insist that you meet at that hotel rather than making your own way to the ship. Talk to your cruise company to find out what hotel they use.
