Travelled to the Ice Hotel with Untravelled Paths who had the entire hotel booked out for New Year. We almost didn't make it on New Year's Eve due to a technical hitch with the bus, but thankfully we did, although we didn't arrive until after dark. The trip up on the cable car at night was rather exciting and our... More

Me and my boyfriend spend an incredible weekend at the Hotel of Ice. It was a breathtaking experience. The landscapes are fabulous, and the hotel seems taken from the fairytales. Excelent food, excelent accommodation (if you like the ice)..everything was perfect. My only regret is that we coul stay only for three days. I wish we had the inspiration to... More

Booked a night in the Ice Hotel as part of a few days stay in Transylvania. It must be on most peoples bucket list!! Unfortunately for us the weather was bad and there was some confusion with the cable car, with little communication. The cable car when it did arrive was a shock - lets say retro.... But it managed... More

My son and I stayed this weekend at this amazing Hotel. We caught a fab retro cable car to the top. From start to finish the experience is incredible. Bring warm snow clothes AND your camera. Even the dinner (where applicable) is served on a bed of ice. And of course we slept there too. My 9 year old son... More

Wonderful experience in Romania if a little difficult at times. Booked this on our own and not as part of any tour however once we had found a way to check in was a great experience. Ice hotel is beautifully done and an amazing place to have some drinks and spend the night. Great value for money for the once... More

We didn't stay in the hotel, but had the dinner. The 4 course dinner was excellent and brilliantly prepared considering there is no kitchen in the hotel and this was probably the best meal we had in Romania. The hotel looked great and the rooms looked particularly good, each with its individualised carvings.

Absolutely brilliant! Stayed here as part of a week with Secret Transylvania, everything was wonderful starting with the cable car ride, the stunning views, the sheer joy (or is that terror?) of being towed behind the skidoo in a rubber dinghy on the frozen lake, watching the braver souls who were ice climbing, walking through the tunnel through which went...

Had fantastic trip with untravelled paths, the ice hotel was great, a once in a lifetime sight. The food was 4 courses and was good value as even though £40 it was very nice and very well presented. The ice bar was great too and had some cocktails for sale, which were reasonably priced. Over 5 days in romania we... More

I booked to stay at the Ice Hotel as this was a feature offered by Secret Transylvania and I have to say the whole experience was amazing! The Ice Hotel is exactly what it says on the tin - ice. What a cool experience. I thought it might be like an igloo but an ice palace would be a better... More

Not very easy to get there by cable car in bad weather conditions, it is however an experience to sleep in an igloo and have a drink served in glasses carved in ice! Unique experience also if you have to go to the bathroom during the night (no bathroom in the igloos or the hotel, but in the nearby Chalet... More
