Good place to visit for a short side trip if you're in Quebec in the winter. My boys were awed by the ice sculptures and bedroom themes. I'm glad we took the time to visit while visiting Quebec

We booked the lunch and tour and it was well worth it. It's quite an architectural marvel. Certainly couldn't see ourselves staying there overnight....too cold and too expensive but enjoyed seeing all the rooms and learning how it is built. Lunch in the restaurant was excellent.

This is brrrrr cold and its really amazing to see. Its got a variety of rooms to sleep in although it wouldnt be my choice to stay. I did want to stay until I got there and realised how cold it really was inside. I find it hard to imagine sleeping there but the way you are insulated for sleep... More

I find it hard to believe that people actually stay here overnight. It is so, so cold. Not even the fireplace area close to the bar gave off any real heat. Admittedly it was about -20C the day we were there but it was no warmer inside than out. Nevertheless, it is quite amazing to see, the structure is both... More

Pure magic! Unbelievable the incredible imagination and artistry that has gone into creating such a monumental feat! From children sliding down the 'grande slide' to enjoying my special ice cider in an ice glass... I couldn't take too many pictures! I will be certain to return again with my daughter this time to let her see first hand what would... More

Not far from the city of Quebec. Expect to spend an hour or two. They have facilities that are heated and food available. The hotel is unique and beautiful. Rooms with various sculptures, a chapel, bar with ice cube glasses and an ice slide. There are tours, unfortunately, our guide provided very little information beyond the obvious but he was... More

It is just a fantastic work of art with ice and snow. The ice sculptures are amazing. If you want to see the rooms you have to go before they are open for guests. I could not sleep there but enjoyed very much the visit. It is something different to see, drinking in a glass made of ice was a... More

A hotel made of ice... who thought this was a good idea. Whoever they are they were right. Despite the cold the hotel is something that must be seen and experienced. We stayed the night and believe it or not the sleeping bags they provided were more than sufficient. The themed rooms were all unique and the level of detail... More

Located at a very short drive from Québec City (15 minutes), L'Hôtel de Glace, 2015 Edition, is worth a visit. You arrive directly into a parking lot. Make your way in through the main entrance building where the gift shop is located. Admission costs CAD $18/adult. They also offer student discount when your present your student card.

I had no idea there could possibly be such a cold hotel... It is amazing all the attention they paid to the details while building this icy hotel. It is a must-see
