Hotel Alexandra

Hotel Alexandra

The Norwegian fjords, Norway

Owned and run by the same family since 1884, Hotel Alexandra boasts one of the region’s most scenic and convenient locations, overlooking the inner Nordfjord, just a five-minute drive from Loen Skylift. This is an excellent base for exploring the region’s rugged landscape through hikes, kayak trips, windsurfing, zip-lines, and scenic drives.

The hotel’s 203 rooms are light and airy, and many boast floor-to-ceiling windows that make the most of the sweeping views. The hotel has four different eateries, including Restaurant Charlotte, which serves a buffet breakfast and three-course dinners, and Markus Vinkjellar, a wine bar and restaurant in the red-brick cellars. The hotel is a good option for families, with child-friendly pools and menus, as well as suite options that sleep up to five.

OUR OPINION:

The scenic location combined with quality service from this family-run property makes this hotel a wonderful base for exploring the region, especially for families.
