Surprisingly warm in the sleeping bag provided. Not a big deal to walk up to the cable car station for the toilet in the night. Obviously no washing/changing facilities but definitely worth going.
Wonderfully quiet and sound proof

Room tip: all rooms seemed to offer same amenities

some previous reviews have been odd with people moaning about the cold and noise and no bathroom - seriously its a hotel made of ice - what do you expect - its meant to be cold! Rooms are separated from the dining hall by a curtain so totally get that noise would be a problem if you want to sleep and others want to party but an ice door would freeze shut obviously so nothing else can be done, you do need to go for the experience and not expect something luxurious. we were the only guest staying that night so had the hotel to ourselves which was awesome but i would like to be back on a party night too.

its quirky and a definite thing to tick off anyone's bucket list, the staff were great and we had access to a room at the cabin to warm up and leave our things dry. if we wanted to give up ice sleeping in the night we were provided with the mobile number to wake up someone and get access in the cabin for the rest of the night at an 80lei per person cost - again previous reviews have moaned about this but its not fair to expect a second room without paying for it and hopefully it deters people disturbing the staff in the middle of the night because of getting bored. once i was snuggled with the sleeping bag mostly closed over my head i soon warmed up - and more so than i expected.

food at the cabin was great, food in the ice hotel was also great but no better than the cabin food so really it is a bit overpriced, it includes a shot, but could be more worthwhile with a few more drinks included, your essentially paying for the experience of eating in the ice hotel, maybe if there were more guests the atmosphere would have added to the experience,

staff were fantastic, catered to my friends complex diet requirements and we went for the trek through the tunnel - really cool to do

Me & my girlfriend spent a night at the Ice Hotel last week.

As a one-off experience, it's worth it, and very good value (especially compared to the cost of an Ice Hotel in Sweden!). The Ice Dinner is also worth it for the complete experience.
The surrounding Mountain Scenery is also beautiful.

If your travelling there independently (as we did) you can get the Belea Bus there (15 EUR per head from Sibiu to cable cable) but will probably have to arrange a taxi back (At least 50 EUR for a Taxi from cable car to Sibiu).

We had a wonderful experience. We ate in the ice restaurant and the meal was very good. The staff were very helpful. We had a great time however the ice bar does get extremely slippery. The chalet hotel is also very good, most of the staff were helpful and polite but some appeared uncaring but I think that this was because they did not have understood us. Lots of fun activities to do and the scenery is amazing. A most do experience

Stayed here as part of a multi city break to Romania with friends. The location is magical at Lake Balea in Sibiru, 6,000ft high in the Fagaras Mountains. The hotel is a sizeable ice structure, with a central spine decked out with Ice Tables and chairs; bedrooms peel off left and right of the spine. There is a well stocked bar for drinks and a music system too - very atmospheric !! The bedrooms are ice sculpted and the walls feature ice patterns and designs. Every bedroom has ice sculptures in the room - we had an armchair and small table !! We slept on an elevated ice platform, wooden slats, a mattress, deer skins, then an antartic sleeping bag , together with 4 extra thermal layers....... once settled in , cold was not a problem. A one off experience that was truly memorable.
