Discover the Roros Hotel, which was originally the idea of Alf Skancke to save the local economy during the 1930s.

Roros Hotel was constructed in the years following World War II, in which the United States was defined by the Civil Rights Movement and the Cold War.

Thought up in 1935 by Alf Skancke, Roros Hotel was part of a grand strategy to provide a boost to the local economy due the decline of region’s copper industry. It would take many years for the Roros Hotel to open though, debuting in 1951 with 150 beds. The Roros Hotel became an overnight sensation and the neighboring businesses thrived with the heightened levels of tourism. After being hired in 1969, hotel director Knut R. Strøm and his wife Kristin decided to expand and purchase surrounding businesses, including restaurants cafe Kaffestuggu and restaurant Vertshuset Roros. This made for a uniquely all-inclusive experience for guests staying in Roros. Still impassioned by its original mission, Roros collaborates with regional partners who identify with similar core values: integrity, quality, and creativity. Today, Roros Hotel has expanded to several chains and maintains a high standard in providing warm hospitality and luxury accommodations.
