travelling the seven parts of the world

This was our room at the Ice Hotel. All rooms are always -5C (23F) inside, no matter what the temperature outside is (it was -21C (-6F) on that night). You sleep inside a giant and heavy sleeping bag that's given by the hotel - we slept in a double bag, which I have to say is not that comfortable (because the bag opening is larger, because you have to accommodate 2 people). But you're definitely warm.

The biggest problem is undoubtedly going to the bathroom. There's no way to do it inside the room, so you actually have to walk through the hotel outside and then back into the warm building. Since you're sleeping in as few clothes as possible, you're literally going to be walking through -5C in pajamas.
