One big tourist attraction. Big, bigger, biggest : how many rooms you need to be impressed? Maybe great for those who love ice "art". Not my cup of tea!

This is one of those must-see spots, interesting even if no events are happening. The structure is impressive, and the ice carvings are amazing (and the building is almost literally a maze). If one is claustrophobic it would not be a nice experience. Reception hall, bars, disco floor, chapel, and themed rooms are large but the ordinary bedrooms are small... More

We did the behind the scene tour, which I highly recommend. Very creative and beautiful. We even made our own ice glass to use for our cocktail at the end of the tour.

The Ice Hotel is only open for a few months at the beginning of the year. I recommend visiting the hotel unless you really want to stay over night and sleep in sleeping bags. There are basic and theme suites in the hotel - 40+ in all. There are sculptures, wall carvings, a slide, clock, bar, sauna and chapel. Your... More

My family joined a tour for around $45. The tour is around half-hour and it is definitely recommended. You can go around and take pictures in every room after the tour.

The bar, the drinks, the ice slide, the chapel were all very cool! And some guests gave us a tour of their rooms which were very interesting. Just don't miss the last bus back to town like we did :(

bragging rights to sleeping on an ice bed in a -5 degree room. The concept is very exciting, and the beautiful ice sculptures inside this huge igloo-like structure are phenomenal. The sleeping bags were supposed to be rated -32 but you still need at least 4 layers of non cotton clothes to be comfortable. Make sure you request the right... More

Is it cold? Yes! Is it worth it? Yes. This beautiful and creative attraction is close to the Old City and completely unique. You won't find anything limke it state-side, so if you find yourself in the vicinity, you must add this attraction to your intinerary.
