“Reasonable hotel, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

Travelling from the Slovenian alps to Italy, we got caught in the rain near Bovec and decided to spend the night there.

The hotel is clean, unfussy, staff helpful, with the hotel serving a decent breakfast. They have a restaurant which we didn't try but we did have a few beers as we watched the rain pouring down. They have a WIFI on the ground and first floors.

Bovec is an absolutely wonderful area. There are only 3 hotels and heaps of other options. The Kanin looked really old and the other hotel option was too far out of town. The Alp is well located and well priced. Modest rooms however with all the activities on offer, you may not be in it much.

This three stars hotel is located at the very centre of Bovec, which is great if travelling without a car (bus-stop to the nearby Triglav national park only 7 min. walk from the hotel). The hotel has great prices (packages) for half board accommodation, including a tasty breakfast and dinner buffet. Although the interior is not exciting, reminding of socialist times and the rooms are not very spacious, the hospitality and professionalism of the staff makes it overall a positive experience. I would recommend it to those who are more interested in outdoor activities than spending time at the hotel.

The hotel is on the main street in Bovec so easy to find and has dedicated car parking. It is a no frills functional hotel with no element of personality about it (the brown and drab decor had a 1970's feeling). Both the bedroom and bathroom were fairly small and furnished in a basic style but were clean. However the breakfast (7-10am) was poor. We went at 9am and the choice was extremely limited (e.g. the fresh fruit salad was a couple of tinned peaches, the bread had seen better days, no salad, orange juice was out of a machine etc. but they did have plenty of pickled onions and gherkins!) so we went hungry. Overall would not recommend this place and will not be back.

great "old school" mountain type of hotel!

stayed there for a ski weekend, very near Kanin ski area, situated just in center of nice town Bovec.. rooms and bathroom are spacey, balcony with a great view on town center and surrounding mountains.. hotel staff is friendly and polite.. breakfast is decent and tasty..

thumbs up for Hotel Alp in Bovec!

Ok, the hotel it self is not so bad. You could say it's in the center of the town - but almost everything is, as the town is really small...
There are no extra activities in the hotel it self, and not much to do all around the town if the weather is bad.
As for the food - both breakfast and diner were rather good. Would not go as far to say they were spectacular, but there is a few options to chose from, and enoguh of everything not to start the day on an empty stomach.
The staff, as well as the hotel's decor, are stuck in the times long gone... The 80's are very much alive in this hotel, and you must not forget that in the 80's Slovenia was part of a comunist country! The staff will do what they can to help you - if you ask, but wan't go out of their way to do so on their own ...
And if you come to Bovec to go skiing on Kanin - note: the hotel is not walking distance to the gondola, but there is a ski bus stoping in front of the hotel each morning. Also in the case of the bad weather - a very often situation on Kanin mountain in the winter, a free bus will take you to Sella Nevea for a day on the slopes (but you have to register on the reception for the ride!).
Now, the thing my husband & I really hold against this hotel - THE HEATING IN THE ROOMS IS TURN OF AT NIGHT! We came to the hotel late, around midnight and by that time, our room was freezing, as it was on the end of the hallway, and it was -10 C or less outside, raining and windy. When we came back down to the reception, thinking there is something wrong with the heating in our room, the night concierge told us, there is nothing he can do, as the heating in the entire hotel is turn down at night. So, I ended up sleeping in my skiing jumper... Not a great expirience! Will not come here to freez again!
