With modern comfort in historic surroundings, Funken Lodge offers a unique Svalbard experience. You stay at the top of "the Hill", and have great views of Longyearbyen, the Lars- and Longyear glaciers. The hotel was built in 1947 and was totally refurbished winter of 2017/2018. We are happy to invite you to our newly renovated hotel, the perfect place to start your Arctic adventure!
The hotel was originally built as accommodation/dining area for employees at Store Norske Spitsbergen Kulkompani. It was also the company’s official representational building, and its interior and architecture made it Longyearbyen’s grandest construction.
In the cosy lounge you can get freshly baked waffles every afternoon. Sit in front of the fire with an arctic book from our library and make the journey back to the time of Nansen and Amundsen. You can also use our gym and relax in our spa department which has a sauna and massage chair.
The hotel can facilitate both small meetings and larger conferences. Our conference facilities all have modern AV equipment.
Funktionærmessen Restaurant was opened in the Spring of 2000, and has a fantastic view of the town, the Longyear Glacier and Hiorthfjellet on the far side of the Adventfjord. The restaurant gets its inspiration from the French kitchen, and you will discover a carefully planned selection of wines and dishes that tempt you with both taste and appearance.
