THE WORLD'S MOST UNBELIEVABLE HOTELS                                     MAXIMILLIEN de LAFAYETTE & ARLETTE LAGRANGE PICK OF THE MONTH

THE ICE HOTEL, SWEDEN

ENTRANCE OF THE HOTEL

 

   

 

To call the Ice Hotel unbelievable, would and could be  an ironic statement. It is entirely built out of huge masses of ice and snow. The most unbelievable aspect of it is ITS ANNUAL REBUILDING AND RECONSTRUCTION. Yes, sir! The ICE HOTEL is built and rebuilt every single winter. Every single room and facility is to be redesigned and erected every season, including  the  movie room, all the bedrooms, the chapel, the kitchens and frozen beds.

Strangely enough, the interior of the hotel is warm and comfy. Through a most ingenious thermal design  of sleeping bags on reindeer pelts, the beds are kept warm at night. The hotel publicist stated: "Hot spot aficionados should be sure to hit the Absolut Icebar, where drinks are served in ice glasses."
