The Ice Hotel of Balea Lac expects visitors starting on December 20

Tourists who want to seek accommodation in the ice hotel to be built this year at Balea Lac may do it starting on December 20.
The building of the hotel will start, just like in preceding years, by the end of November. The hotel will have 12 rooms, each of them with a zodiac sign as a symbol.
Tourists interested in renting a room at Balea Lac will pay a price of RON 440 per night for a double room and RON 660 per night for an ice igloo.
The price includes accommodation and breakfast, but the prices will register significant cuts during times of special offers, due to be announced throughout the entire season, the website bzb.ro reports. This is the ninth year the Ice Hotel of Balea Lac is being built. Each year, the hotel has a new theme.
“2014 is the year when we want to bring the zodiac down from the map of the sky to Balea Lake. The artists are already preparing to transpose their creativity in ice blocks. The scenery, the illumination and the name of each room will be chosen so that they will symbolise the twelve signs of the zodiac. The Ice Hotel is a genuine challenge, a thought born from the desire to bring something new in Romanian tourism, something to combine adventure and fun with the latest existing concepts of touristic promotion. Besides Hotel of Ice, we will also build its “satellite”, a structure of three igloo-shaped rooms, united by a central hallway and corridors, as well as the already famous Church of Ice, Arnold Klingeis, the initiator of the touristic marketing project “Hotel of Ice – Bâlea Lac” announced.
In the central lobby of the hotel, organizers will arrange the Hotel of Ice bar and the Ice Restaurant, where tourists will be served with food placed on ice trays and will drink from ice glasses.
This year, the Hotel of Ice from Balea Lake was closed a month earlier than last year, respectively at the beginning of April, due to the warming of the weather. At that time, room reservations were cancelled because part of the building had started to melt. The same happened in the case of the Ice Church and of the igloos.
