With modern comfort in historic surroundings, Funken Lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. Situated on "The Hill", it gives you great views of Longyearbyen, the Lars- and Longyear glacier. The hotel was constructed in 1947. Now we are rebuilding it and we are looking forward to welcome you to our new hotel, February 2018.
SPITSBERGEN HOTEL BECOMES FUNKEN LODGE
In the autumn of 2017 and winter 2018 we make extensive changes. We take back the history and make the hotel modern with lots of comfort. We welcome you to a new visit in new surroundings!
A HISTORICAL HOTEL
The hotel was originally built as an accommodation and dining area for employees of Store Norske Spitsbergen Coal Company. It was also the company’s official representational building. Its interior and architecture made it Longyearbyen’s grandest construction. The hotel is preserved and decorated using its history. It's well worth walking through the corridors and public areas to look at the historical photographs and pictures, old maps and newspaper stories.
Funktionærmessen Restaurant has a fantastic view of the town, the Longyear Glacier and Hiorthfjellet on the far side of the Adventfjord. We are proud that Funktionærmessen Restaurant is ranged as the 19th best restaurant by the White Guide Nordic! You will discover a carefully planned selection of wines and dishes that tempt you with both taste and appearance.
DET GAMLE NORDPOLET
A Champagne tasting at det gamle Nordpolet is the ultimate aperitiff before enjoying a delicious meal at Funktionærmessen Restaurant. The tasting includes three selected champagnes, canapées and well-versed staff to explain both the vintages and the location to you.
We offer all our guests free WiFi. In addition, we have a computer available in the reception you can use for free.
