Situated between towering mountains and the long and deep Norwegian fjords, this family-run hotel in Loen has been welcoming guests for more than 130 years. “When Hotel Alexandra was opened by Anders Markusson Loen in 1884, it could accommodate 20 guests. The hotel is still run by the same family, but it has since been renovated and expanded many times,” says hotel manager Ingri Grov Kämpf. She believes that the idyllic surroundings, the historical charm and the complete wellness and activity offering are the key reasons why the hotel has become such a favoured tourist spot. Alexandra today has 206 rooms with eight different room categories spread over eight floors.
