    It is definitely a YOLO moment when you wake up in the cold, the staff are extremely friendly and just willing to please, the Christmas Eve dinner was delicious. The hotel was very accommodating to our kids and the kids probably slept better than us
  • Felix
    It's a once in a lifetime experience and I'm happy we did it. We'll never forget our overnight experience at -5 degree celsius inside the hotel. The ice hotel with all its individually designed rooms is wonderful.

  • Ekin
    Mattress, sleeping-bag and fleece layer was comfortable and enough for staying warm during the night in snow igloo. Warm area was big enough for everyone and kitchen amenities were sufficient. Breakfast was open buffet and delicious.

    The reception staff was cheerful and helpful and welcoming. due to covid, a wonderful spread welcomed us every morning when we arrive at the breakfast table - that was our highlight every morning, especially as we were served by a lovely young lady.
