This was a fun and unique experience. We spent about 2 hours there and that was more than enough. Each room is different and the ice sculptures and carvings are amazing works of art. Worth a trip. It does completely change each year

We stayed overnight in their ice hotel and we did not freeze. The sleeping arrangements are very comfortable, although the air around you is a few degrees below zero. The fireplace is not to keep you warm, but to create a beautiful ambiance. We had some activities in the evening, it was great fun. Be sure to bring some gloves... More

It's an ice hotel. Not too many of them around. Beautiful ice sculptures and an awesome bar with ice sculpting materials and great drinks.

Living in Quebec city, I visit almost every year. It is nice to have a drink in the bar and see the beautiful ice sculptures. You do not have to stay at the hotel to visit, although a night at the hotel would be a unique experience. (I've seen the rooms but I have never stayed overnight since I live... More

Why not stay in a hotel made completely of ice? This a very fun way to spend an already frigid winter day in Quebec. The hotel itself was amazing to see and learn about. Me and my three friends braved the elements for a day and night (I didn't think we would make it). I wish they had more activities... More

If you think that you will freeze, you won't. The designed it in such a way that it is comfortable even when you sleep there. They have a bar and you can enjoy cocktails. You have to pay to visit but this is a rare hotel in the world build in ice.

French artistic construction. Good to walk around the building and lot of photo opportunities. Fountain in front of the building in itself will give you comfort. If you are a history buff then you have lots to identify.

This is the perfect opportunity to see and feel something you never have before. I have never slept there personally but I have visited many times. They have a wonderful chapel for weddings and a great bar with many different types of drinks. Your drinks are even served in ICE GLASSES!!!! You can also visit some of the rooms and... More

It is a night evening with friends for a nice drink. To stay overnight there? Not for everyone. The whole idea is to enjoy the site and "cool" effect. Make sure to wear the right canadian-made boots and fur coat (i suggest beaver).

We visited in February and it was extremely cold. Make sure you dress according to the weather. It is not warm inside the Hotel de Glace...remember, it's made of ice. It was gorgeous and 100% worth the visit to see something so unique. We even watched one chainsaw artist working on a room that had not opened yet. Amazing!
