02You’re paying a lot of money to be cold

While being cold for a few hours might be no big deal, do you really want to pay hundreds of dollars to sleep on a block of ice and wake up freezing? Ice hotels are relatively expensive: a standard room will set you back about $300 to $400 per night, and a deluxe room can set you back over $1,000. Usually, a meal is included at these prices, and some hotels even offer package deals. But when you factor in the cost of transportation to the remote locations where these hotels are usually built, you’re talking about a very expensive way to shiver.

If you want the ice without the price, consider a tour instead, or stop in for a drink at the ice bar.
