I read a lot of reviews on TA in preparation for our visit to this hotel... and that definitely helped ADJUST our expectations.. .. so we ended up having a good visit. And as we had 2 young kids, we ended up staying in the Glass Igloo (instead of the ice rooms).. so it would be warmer and easier access...

We stayed in this hotel last week and it really was a thing. Outside temperature -1C, inside temperature -2C. No comment. You can choose a "room" - simple - only bed, suite - bed and decorations - ice sculptures. There is also an ice bar, ice chapel, ice restaurant. If you buy a drink in the bar be careful -...

The photos of this hotel do not do it justice. It is truly an amazing feat what they have done here. This was one of the coolest (literally and figuratively) experiences of my life. We stayed in a suite in the ice hotel, and wished that one of the igloos had been open for our second night in town, but...

Thank you for staying with us! Suites are indeed a lot a lot more spacious than our standard rooms - they are about three times bigger! Glow-fried salmon which we prepare in our Lappish Kota is our speciality - salmon tastes definitely different when cooked (glow-fried) by an open fire compared to oven or frying pan. We hope to see...

Spending a night in this hotel, is a dream come true. We stayed in one of the suites, they are decorated beautifully and they are all different. Everything is made of ice, even the bed frames! Of course you sleep on a matress with reindeer skins and they gave us very warm sleeping bags, so we didn't feel cold at...

Thank you for your comment. Renting a car gives you definitely more flexibility to travel around, especially if you are staying several days with us. Staying at SnowHotel and in glass igloos are definitely two different experiences and many of our clients try both like you did! Welcome again.

Spent 1 night here at the ice hotel section and gladly it was only for 1. I understand that ice hotels are not meant to be warm or as comfortable as any ordinary accommodations, but I did not realise the inconvenience that accompanies my stay in this hotel. First, guests had to leave their luggage in the same place as...

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you had unpleasant encounter with our staff. All of our staff members do speak English so I guess there must have been some communication problems.

Our stay was definitely memorable and something totally different. Before booking the hotel we knew it was more for the experience than comfort.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
ARCTIC SNOWHOTEL Our SnowHotel sleeps 70 guests and is one of the largest in the Nordic region. This spectacularly handsome building is carved each year to be different in appearance. The walls and furniture surfaces of the unique rooms are decorated with ice art and illuminated artwork. The room temperature is 0–5C°, but using the sleeping bags intended for extreme conditions combined with reindeer furs, you can be sure you will stay in warmth and comfort. On the shores of the lake the moonlight, stars and Northern Lights illuminate the silent, Lappish nature. As our guest you will have a good night’s sleep as the Aurora Alarm searches the skies for you. GLASS IGLOOS Next to SnowHotel you will find the tranquillity of the glass igloos. Staying overnight in a glass igloo feels like sleeping in the open, but inside the igloo it is just as warm and cosy as a hotel. The igloo village is set in an opening surrounded by pine trees, sufficiently far away from the city lights, making ideal conditions for watching the Northern Lights and enjoying starry skies. Have a good night’s sleep as the Aurora Alarm searches the skies for you: once the Aurora Alarm has woken you up, all you need to do is open your eyes, look at the night sky and enjoy the sight from the comfort of your bed. ... more   less
