“The pool area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Rating in this rewiew are for the pool area except the rooms-i don't know how they are because i am an exterior guest visiting the pool for years( the only pool in bovec). The only thing i have to say it' s about the pool bar. They served drink in glass bottled and glases! The bottles and glases lied everywhere! In the garden, around the pool and nobody from the staff picked them up!!I saw it also last year i was there. There were some bottles of champagne and glases lying on the floor. For three hours i was there nobody clean them. I guess they where there from the night sauna use.. NO Glass on the pool area!!!it is dangerous!!! There are also kids!!!!

We stayed at the Kanin for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We had two adjoining rooms and both were very clean and well maintained throughout our stay. The beds and pillows were comfortable and there was a fridge in both rooms which was very handy. Staff were friendly and helpful.

There is a fantastic, large swimming pool which was clean and I got plenty room for a "proper" swim while my kids enjoyed fooling around. There are spa (massage etc) and sauna facilities which we didn't use but looked really nice too. The breakfast was not the best I've had for my British/Scottish tastes but was more than adequate. Food for dinner was buffet style and there was an excellent range of hot dishes and salads every night. It was above expectations.

The hotel is well positioned just away from the main centre of Bovec and there are lots of hikes and cycle rides you can do from there. There are lots of shops doing providing rafting, kayaking, canyoning, bike hire etc within a 5 minute walk of the Kanin. The quality of training and guiding we encountered was well above the norm. Our canyoning guide, Alenka, even offered to take us to Bled, where she lived, the next day - that was the sort of people we encountered everywhere in Bovec.

We would definitely return here.

Centrally located in the village of Bovec this is a large hotell (100+) rooms with a fairly modern but basic standar. The rooms often have a nice view on the mountains and a balcony. The hotel sports a large wellness area with swimming pool as well as a large sauna area also taking in the view. Finnish sauna while enjoying the view is good.

The restaurant is serving an acceptable breakfast.

The rooms are somewhat small but comfortable

The reception was consistently manned with nice and very helpfull staff

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountains have a balcony, while the rooms facing the village have neither a view no...

Stay here for skiing weekend on Kanin (hotel is 1km from cable car). Hotel is situated at beautiful place, surrounded by gorgeous nature. Rooms are clean but very basic in very sense, renovated but still "soc-realistic" style. Don't expect any touch of luxury. The best thing in the room is the view from the balcony on surrounding mountains. Breakfast also limited with hot stuff (scrambled eggs and some sausages). Coffee from the machine and orange juice real disaster. Service slow and staff unmotivated - waited 20 minutes for drink on the bar, got it after 2 times complaining at reception! Positive surprise was spa & sauna area that looks great, and has 5 different saunas, outside pool, Jacuzzi, relax room... They charge 10€ per entrance in "sauna world" but is worth after day of skiing. Wifi internet provided for free at reception area, no internet option in the rooms. I booked special package trough agency and got good deal, but would never pay full advertised price (100€/room) because is not worth it.

Bovec is excellent place for spending few days in Spring or Summer holidays if you like small challenges for urban people.

Kanin is the option when you love canioning, rafting, climbing and whatevere -ing (you will find all of it in Bovec) you can imagine that raises adrenaline in your body but still you are sticked to large chain hotels with no climate but large swimming pool. But for God sake! Never take breakfast unless the whole town is covered by the avalanche and you must wait for the rescue team.

We stoped in Bovec for one night as we rode bicycles from Italy to Bled. Although Hotel Kanin was no where near as luxurious as the other places we stayed on our trip, it was clean and we were comfortable - important after riding 97 km most of it climbing.

We were a group of 4 and spent only 1 night at this hotel, which we booked over the phone the night before. We had 1 room, which was big enough for all of us. Our room was nice, clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was fairly spacious and it had a bath with a shower. Our room did not have an air conditioner so at times it was getting a bit hot at night especially because we could not open the windows since there were some activities going on in the centre. But this was not really a problem for us. Free WIFI is available in the main lobby. So I would say this hotel does not lack any amenities.

This hotel also has a swimming pool, which we did not get to use but it looked tempting.

Breakfast offers a varied selection and is served from 07:00, which is a good time for those who would like to travel early like we did. It is also possible to have dinner at this hotel, for which one has to pay only a small extra charge. We didn’t have dinner at this hotel but judging from the breakfast I am led to believe that it would be a good option to have dinner here.

Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Location of hotel is great. It's about 5 minutes on foot to the centre, where one can find restaurants, several sport centres, and a nice atmosphere. This hotel is ideal for those who want to do some sort of sport activities and here one can choose from a number of different summer and/or winter sports activities. Surroundings of this hotel are amazing as it is surrounded by mountains and nature.

Price for our stay was quite reasonable considering that this hotel is so close to the centre, is situated in such a lovely place and is nice and service is good.

We had a very pleasant experience at this hotel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who will be visiting Slovenia and wants to travel around.
