    Our stay was very comfortable. They provide complimentary shuttle from airport. We were welcomed by their staff at airport on time. The igloo was very good and comfortable. They gave us early check in. Breakfast was good

    It was really good overall. The personnel was very welcoming.They give a Little gift to my son and a Little bag with shampoo and kindar of stuff to us. Breakfast was good. The room was comfortable and instagrammable. It is close to the Santa Claus village. There were only two concerns for me. First, the room was cool at night. Our 4-year-old son was with us so it was something important for us. They provided a heater upon our request, which was nice, it was still cool. Second, for the complimentary shuttle service you have to make a reservation 7days in advance. Although I had known about that I forgot and informed then 5 days before our trip. It is like a trap. I had to pay one way. Luckily for our return trip it was complimentary since there were 7 days before our departure. It should be free or not. It should not be the customers’ responsibility to arrange it. I can suggest a few more things. Some complimentary hot drinks at the reception would be great. The weather is cold and I know most hotels in the area offer this. Other than this there should be a tour desk at the hotel. They simply direct you to the village for more information.

    Not as dreamy as the photo

    We went in Nov so it was snowing that time and it was beautiful. We stayed at treehouse hotel before and it was one of the most amazing experience. But one we get to this igloo hotel, we find it quite disappointing and over priced. Firstly this hotel price was at a luxury hotel price rate but the service was only so so. The only special about the room of course is the glass roof but other than that nothing but. If you were unlucky like us, not only you don’t see aurora and you don’t get to sleep in the next morning cause the room is just super bright.

    This was definitely a dream come true place! We did see the aurora from the room by looking up the sky through the glass roof! The glass roof has heating system to melt the top snow away to see the sky clearly. But water will drip down to the lower glasses outside so it might block some view in the lower part, but it basically doesn't affect the view of aurora! The room has one tablet as well to message the front desk if there's any problem, as it requires walking in the snow in order to reach the lobby from the glass rooms. They would also send message to us when there's aurora and we could look up the sky ASAP. The front desk was super helpful in helping us to solve problem of vehicles shining strong lights towards our room which affected our view of aurora in the dark sky. Front desk staff was really friendly with nice smile. Very good quality breakfast with many choices. Room was very very clean and it impressed me. Definitely recommend! A very quiet and dark place to see aurora from hotel room!

    Well at check in the Girl was pleasant but we had to walk ourselves to our igloo with our suitcases in the snow , the front desk did not offer to take our luggage’s to the room which for the amount we are paying to stay here they should automatically take the luggage’s to ur room . The room was lovely but abit to small . Another thing I didn’t like the glass on the igloo was covered with ice so u could not look through and see the forest clearly so I was very disappointed about that .

    We are glad that the hotel arranged us pick up and drop off services when we arrived from and left for the airport. We enjoyed the breakfast and staff were quite friendly. The room is comfortable andwe were excited about the glass rooftop and windows. There is a ipad-like dervice which would alert guests when there is northern light, and we were glad that it beeped when we stayed and we were able to see northern lights! Very lucky! One of the downsides is that only the rooftop windows could be heated up, meaning the rest of the windows would get foggy when the room is warm. So you may still need to go outdoor to see northern lights rather than staying indoor. Would be great if the restuarant can expand the meau a bit to offer more options.
