This was an absolute rip off - nearly 18 quid each to get in and one free drink served in an old plastic beaker by a batman who either didn't know what he was doing or didn't care or both! You go through a dirty looking door into the 'icebar' and straight away you notice that this is just a chiller storage unit which has a bar made of ice with lots of crates of beer and empty bottles everywhere. The ceiling is falling down and even in the blue light it looks dirty. The floor is a positive trip hazard. There were a lot of empty glasses lying around. The jackets which you have to wear are smelly and poorly kept. There were a couple of nice ice sculptures but nothing to write home about - save your money and buy a keep sake instead?!! Disappointed.

It was one of those situations, never been to an ice bar before and we were on holiday so thought why not? But its expensive £13 each after discount vouchers we got off the rep, its tiny, about the size of a shipping container. I would not visit again

Many people had told us about this ice bar whilst we were in Egypt so we decided to take a look - we paid £15 per person for 30 minutes and it included 1 drink. It was very small and had no atmosphere whatsoever - we was the only people in which shows something! I wouldnt go back but i suppose its something to tick off the list of things we have done.

OMG! This place is a total waste of money£££ the bar is no bigger than a double garage and has a plastic roof which leaked water! There are only a handful of sculptures inside which I admit are beautiful however..... The glasses your drinks are served in are made of plastic!!! There are only a limitted amount of the Gucci looking faux fur coats to keep your warm. After that you get given the less fabulous blue nylon ones. You are given 1 free drink which is probably worth £5 back at home. You are allowed to stay inside the bar for 30 minutes however..... The inside is so cramped from the staff ramming people inside that you can't enjoy yourself or have the chance to look at the sculptures. On a scale of. 1 -10, 10 being on a par with winter wonderland in London's Hyde park and 1 being an industrial fridge like you'll find out the back of tesco I'd give it a 2!

A tiny room, expensive but happy to pay and experience it. Plus due to the cost of keeping it cold in such heat must be expensive
