“This hotel is extremely cold”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2011

Most of the people who come to this hotel do not stay here. They pay their fee and tour the place like we did. It's quite impressive visiting a hotel carved out of ice. I forget how many rooms the hotel has but there are more than I expected. The people who carved figures out of ice are to be commended. However, I don't see how anyone could spend an enjoyable night here because the place is really cold, not only that but uncomfortably cold. There's a bar where one can have a beer or some other drink but we were deterred because of the cold. My recommendation is to visit this hotel but not to stay here for the night.
