Our visit experience was a bit strange. Sunday morning at breakfast boiled and scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, rice pies and porridge was served along with bread, cheese, ham, tomato, cucumber and salad and so on was served. Monday morning we were only customers and breakfast included toast but no toaster, other bred was not fresh so it would have needed toasting as well. Coffee maker was ready to put on but coffee wasn’t done. Ham, cheese, tomato and cucumber was wrapped in plastic in a fridge, no warm dishes was served. Quality difference between breakfasts was astonishing. Room was all right in it’s price range.

Be careful this is not hotel 5* this hotel 3* with one reception with ILVESLINNA hotel. They do wooden fence 5 meter from road and build 1 Igloo. What you see - only wooden fence! No lunch! No dinner! We pay 500€/per night for live in bed place! In igloo glass broken, on the ceiling a web! Mini bar on the photo, fridge on photo. I want go from here immediately!

The hotel is not that cheap, but the service they offer is really ''cheap cheap cheap'' stile. Rooms and infrastructure are way below standard for a 3* hotel, the service is a real deception. It would seem that staff think ''you got a room, didn't you? be happy with it and don't expect much else''. They don't even clean the rooms and fix the beds between the 1st and the 2nd night! Staff hardly understand and speak EN. Do you remember the legendary efficency of Northern Europe countries? A legend, indeed!

Marketed as overlooking a lake it sort of does but there is a drive way and trees first and only on one side and not visible from the igloo. The other is a hotel and road. Street lights shine into the room right at eye level when in bed. You can see completely inside from the road. Also if you do go take your own pillow. On the plus side it had its own sauna.

My husband and I traveled to Finland from Australia for the Christmas and New Years, and as it was our first wedding anniversary, wanted to treat us for an expectedly luxurious igloo hotel. We paid quite a bit for the night (around AU$630), and expected it to be worth it. The igloo itself was quite nice and had well-thought out details. Sauna and bathroom were both really nice and modern. We had a fireplace in the igloo, which we put fire in, very cosy! The bed was made with 3 very low quality pillows and there weren't any extra ones. As it was Sunday when we checked in, there was no staff to call in for assistance. In fact there was absolutely no one around when we arrived on Sunday afternoon just after 5pm. We were given the instructions to get inside, which worked, after being curious enough to go through some random buildings and trying different doors. There was a note on the room's table noting that the hotel restaurant would be closed on Sunday, and the breakfast would be served in the hotel's meeting room. Our breakfast would be on Monday, so we didn't suspect this meaning that ours would be in the meeting room. We were wrong: on Monday morning the hotel receptionist informed us the breakfast would indeed, be served in the meeting room. Disappointed is the word that described the breakfast: it was DIY-type of set-up: everything was placed in a fridge (cheese, ham, tomato and cucumber slices, yogurt in a bowl, orange juice and milk), coffee machine had to be filled by us, with instructions only in Finnish, on a hand-written scribbled post-it note. For a place that is mostly booked by tourists, I find this very disturbing, as there were no signs in any foreign language, and to operate the coffee machine, you would definitely need to know the language. For $650/night price tag, I was expecting a proper breakfast, which this was not. We noticed the igloo's glass ceiling's two windows were cracked. My husband woke me up around 4:30am for the leaking window right about above our heads. (as a side note: after browsing on Tripadvisor's review page, there had been comments about the cracked windows as far back as April 2018, and it still hadn't been fixed.) In the igloo, there was a capsule coffee machine, and exactly two capsules for us to enjoy. Well, to our surprise, the second one was just milk (supposedly a cappuccino). Another disappointment was the minibar fridge that didn't work even after plugging it in, and there weren't any switches to turn on. Luckily it was a cold night and snow around, so we could cool off our champagne in the snow outside. I wrote a letter to the hotel the day after our check-out, about the issues we faced during our stay, but after a week since we checked out, we haven't heard a single word from them. Definitely not worth the hefty price tag! Do not recommend, and would not stay again. Jaana & Johan K
