Positive Reviews

An amazing experience

The hotel offers a unique experience where guests can enjoy a wide range of activities, interesting architecture and ice sculptures, and naturally a night sleeping in a room like an igloo. The rooms are basic with only beds and fireplaces in certain suites, depending on the package ordered by guests, but the purpose of a stay here is to make the most of the on-site facilities in any case. Guests find the beds comfortable, and agree they are very warm and cosy sleeping here.

Great facilities and activities

The activities and facilities on offer are the main feature of the hotel, with bars where innovative cocktails are served in glasses crafted from ice, activities like dog sledding, snow slides and ice skating in the Winter Playground, and a very popular spa and sauna. The on-site wedding chapel is well worth seeing for the incredible structure alone.

Ideal for families and couples

Whether travelling with children or looking for a romantic getaway, the hotel provides an experience treasured by all. The activities on offer are a hit with all and are plenty to keep children busy, while couples find the creative cocktails, along with the spa and sauna, to be the main highlights.

Negative Reviews

Very basic rooms

The experience of staying in the ice hotel is not about enjoying a luxurious room. Rooms are basic with beds and curtain doors, while some have fireplaces depending on the package. Bathrooms are located outside of rooms.

Must be prepared

Guests are advised to read all the hotel’s information prior to arrival to ensure they are ready with appropriate clothing, as it is – as expected – very cold inside the building and proper attire is therefore a must.
