While a room in the original Lapland chill-out hotel will hit you for £238 a night - you can cut this by sharing - these German igloos charge the lonely soul only £91. [...]
Before fondue, we divide up the ice rooms: three six-person communal rooms and several doubles linked by icy corridors. Tonight the hotel is almost full with 24 guests - more igloos are being built - and I'm looking around warily. A couple on my train were ludicrously tactile. I fear I may be a frozen gooseberry. I want frigid room-mates. Phew, the lovebirds head to a “romantik” suite, where a €100-a-head supplement buys privacy, zip-together sleeping bags and an en suite bathroom.
We say: real budget travelers sleep outside.
P.S. Okay, fine. It's kinda sweet. We're just trying to be cold (ha! again!) but this place had us at the disco ball.
