Hi, I am looking at staying at this hotel in Jan 2016 for approx. 3 nights. I have seen that a lot of people would only recommend 1 night. Is this recommended or can you stay longer just like any normal hotel?
Thank you!! :)
Thanks for asking! Most of our clients do stay only one night at SnowHotel due to the unique experience; sleep in cold (temperature is between -5 and 0 degrees at all times), visit ice bar, ice restaurant, the hotel itself.. As the temperature is colder than in "normal" hotels, the guests usually go to their rooms only to sleep or to take pictures so you might not spend as much time there as you usually do at hotels.
We do arrange transfers to Rovaniemi daily so you can also go to the city center for the day and come back in the evening to stay for another night. I would definitely recommend one night in glass igloo and one night in SnowHotel to get the both experiences. We opened the glass igloos in Dec 2014 so they are still quite new, all equipped with shower and toilet and comfortable, adjustable beds. And the temperature is about 21C degrees!
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or wish to make bookings, we're happy to help you!
1 night; red nose for 2 days.....brrrrr. Great to experience, but it's not like you'll have t.v. or indoor plumbing.
You can definitely stay longer if you wish. I guess it depends what you want to do during the days. They've got the Ice Saunas, Ice Carving, Snowmobiling and you can hire snow shoes - but other than that, there's not a lot to do. Its a fair bit out from anything else. Which I guess doesn't matter if you have a hire car!
I'm so glad I experienced this, but due to the exorbitant price of staying here, I am glad I only stayed one night!
Hi! I would stay one night in the ice suite and another night or two in the igloos. I didn't sleep well in the ice suite though it was definitely a fun experience. The igloos were booked when we went but I would loved to have stayed in them as well. Carla
Hi, I think all has been said. It is about sleeping in the hotel and getting the experience that you can survive.... . It is not comfortable, toilets and showers are in other building not in the snow hotel, having a drink in a snow bar is fine but in a short time your fingers are falling away -:), if you have other activities like husky riding, scooters, fishing ...all are away from the hotel so coming back from these activities require comfortable bath - which is a bit of drag - you have to go to the other building - if the outside temperature is - 10, walking in it is fine but not after hot shower..... Well I would say 1 nignt at the hotel and 1 night in the igloo - or more days if you wish. in case you are getting prepared for a yourney to the North or South Poles, sleeping in the hotel would be a good beginning.-:)
This hotel has 2 types of room , Ice hotel and .glass igloo ,The ice-hotel is sleeping on a ice bed, but they don't suggest you to stay more than one night. What we had done was one night inIce hotel and one night in glass igloo room which has full toilet inside the igloo.
