Do not think about it. This is the place to stay!

I was unsure if I should stay here or on a slightly cheaper option. Lingering with the thought for a long time. In the end, the choice fell on Funken Lodge despite the fact that it cost a little more. It was worth it - every penny. From arrival with a wonderful receptionist who kindly shared his knowledge and a glass of something to drink. A great room with a view, and everything else a room should have, which I had requested when booking. There was no desk in the room. I therefore used the computer on communal tables downstairs with something good in the glass. Checked out the restaurant. Lovely food although I'm probably more into brasserie. So tried a hamburger later from the bar. Very good. Breakfast was an experience. Press jug with coffee. Omlette. Really good Svalbard bread. And everything you could want. In front of a fantastic view of Longyearbyen, the fjord and the mountains. The staff here were also incredibly skilled. From a northern Norwegian chef to an Asian. And two good girls who served. In general, it is the staff here that makes the experience very good. It's time for some nice words, they helped to find some forgotten sunglasses and are at your service when you need something. I know where I will stay next time I'm in Svalbard. It costs a bit more than some of the less expensive places, but if you can afford it it is very worth it (paid about 200 usd per night with fantastic breakfast). Thank you for your stay, Funken Lodge!

A perfect blend of practicality and luxury. The rooms are better than you’d expect and features a large TV that you’ll most likely not use. The minibar table combo unit is very neat and practical. The bathroom is nice and has a big rain shower. Air quality is also top class. We really had nothing bad to say about our stay here, which is rare.
