All-you-can-eat ice cream hotel opens in Finland

Christian Fleetwood

Tub-a-night ice cream lovers around the world rejoice! There’s a new Finnish hotel serving all-you-can-eat ice cream in their pretty-in-pink sweet suite.

Finnish dairy company Valio and hotel Klaus K Helsinki have created the world’s first ice cream-themed lodging, where guests can book a night in an all-you-can-eat ice cream-themed room.

“Valio Jäätelöfabriikki aims to make you happy,” said Tea Ijäs, ice-cream business manager at Valio. “To many, ice cream is a break from the daily grind. We wanted to create a small, surprising experience around delicious ice cream. This luxurious hotel suite and our beloved ice creams are a match made in heaven.”

The Valio Jäätelöfabriikki Sweet Suite comes with a freezer stocked full of ice cream, with flavours like rich chocolate, tart and sweet lemon curd, passion fruit-coconut and apple-oat pie.

It offers guests pink decor, vintage 1930s furniture, and a bubble bath in its pastel bathroom.

But you better be quick: The Sweet Suite can only be booked for a stay this year, between 1 October and 30 December.
