Ice Hotel has a long history, nowadays all over the world. As early as 1989, a Swedish store was put forward the concept of building ice hotel, though was not recognized at that time, but later, his idea was a great success. Every winter thereafter, thousands of artists and architects come to cold towns in northern Sweden to build magnificent snow-lined palace-like hotels.
The ice hotel consists of two oval-shaped hall and some scattered cabins. The lobby includes a restaurant, bar and bedroom. Sporadic huts are used to place luggage. As the hotel temperature is about minus 5 degrees, the hotel also specifically for guests with a special jacket to withstand the cold down jacket.
It is reported that the cost of living in the hotel in the 220 euros to 1000 euros (about 1600 yuan to 7300 yuan) between, really expensive. But when asked if it was not worth it, Anna replied: "Of course it's worth it, and if it is, she wants to do it again." The good news is this year, when the rest of the hotel melts in the summer, one of the halls will remain annual.
