It has everything a normal hotel has like rooms ,with different lights ,bed configurations , a nicely sculpted , gloving in gentle candle light ice restaurant , a bar that`s even colder in the changing neon light and even an ice chapel should you decide to take "that' step they are ready to serve you . Just don`t expect carpets... More

It was for us a great experience to sleep in the igloo. We had good equipment and we were not cold. The dinner in the kota was good and the woman showing us around was helpful and friendly. But few things could be much better. It may be a finnish thing but they were a lot of restriction: you are... More

Claustrophobic yet mildly haunting, this has to be one of the loneliest hotels on earth. We popped into a few eerie rooms, threw some water onto a snow sauna then got left alone a room to get picked up. The sugar cookies made the visit bearable, as did the hot juice. However, no drink or snack could quash this gal's... More

I didn't stay the night here, only went to visit the restaurant and have a tour with my daughter. Quite pricey , in fact I would have only done the tour but I wanted to eat here as well. It is a great thing to experience and see how everything is made. A nice german girl took us around to... More

We arrived at the snow hotel at about 5:30pm, so it was perfect timing. We had enough time to check in, have the tour, find out the do's and don'ts and peruse the souvenir section before we had to go to dinner. Dinner was in a kota (log cabin) and was surprisingly nice. My kids did not like the selection,... More

Definitely overpriced for the experience. We did not have a good experience at all. The staff was not friendly compared to people we met there. They barely listen to you when you have a question . The ice bar is fun but it closes at 10 p.m....The rooms are very basic and you pay for the experience and not for... More

We had our night in this hotel. Although the hotel itself is beautifully made, and sleeping in our ice-suite was surprizingly comfortable, there were two disappointments. One could be considered a minor nuisance; there are no showering facillities, just a toilet. You come - you sleep -and then you go away, before the day visitors arrive. The other is of... More
