I didn't know where we were staying and going (a taxi driver almost spoiled but luckily his English wasn't good enough). The hotel was amazing and the stuff so friendly and very helpful. Hotel wasn't busy and we had a lot of space and time for relaxing, enjoying the ice hotel, drinks, sauna and Jacuzzi. Also we had dogsledding and... More

Trying to imitate Cunard and failing miserably. Overcrowded ship, insufficient soundproofing between cabins, very poor main restaurant with five course gala dinner which one wld apologise for if presented at home. Bistro restaurant better. Lack of management control. Farcical Welcome Gala Evening to meet captain with long queue (gave up,on that). Long Life milk, processed cheese. Turned out of cabin... More

Whilst on a Cruise we independently booked a table for 4 at the hotel on 19th March 2014. The Ice hotel itself was very impressive although we did not envy those, from our cruise ship, who had booked to stay the night. There are no toilet facilities in the Ice hotel itself so you have to brave the cold walk... More

This really is a once in a lifetime experience. I’m going to be honest if you are looking for luxury and comfort then don’t do it, you will end up sleeping in most of your clothes and you will have to make the trek in the early hours to the toilet, no on-suite here. If you are looking for an... More

Not cheap but worth every penny. We stayed the night and were so well looked after. Magnificent food and a great experience including the northern lights. I couldn't believe that all on our cruise didn't want to stay- they missed a real treat,

We visited the ice hotel during a northern lights cruise. All I can say is its a truly magical place to see, the surroundings are spectacular also, we had about an hour there which is enough time for photos and not forgetting the vodka shot in the glass made of ice!!

The Igloo Hotel at Sorrisniva is a sight to behold. The ice sculptures and snow carvings in the reception area and the Ice Chapel are wonderful, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Don't miss it!!

I was lucky enough to visit this hotel on a trip to view The Northern Lights. Just loved it . Complete fairy tale hotel. The Ice Chapel was gorgeous. It was snowing outside which made it even lovelier . I was also lucky enough to meet Knut ,the man who designed it. Such a charmer. He told me he got... More

I didn't spend the night here but took a tour of the hotel and grounds. It is truly a work of art. Hotel is literally built out of ice but the most amazing thing is the sculptures. The ice statues and wall carvings are a work of art. The theme this year is Viking Kings and Northern Lights. We were... More

The igloo Hotel at Sorrisniva is quite stunning, the entrance is all traditional Finnmark, with high wooden ceilings. The food in the restaurant was gorgeous, this meal came as part of our package through Mighty Fine Holidays. The chef also carved most of the ice sculptures in the Ice part of the Hotel. This years theme is Vikings. The place... More
