Hotel Alp
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Bovec
Reviewed August 13, 2010

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.

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!

The hotel is great for the price, and about as central as you can get in Bovec. The rooms are clean and bright, with comfortable beds and cable tv, and they had a great powerful shower, which is vital after a day hiking/kayaking etc. The breakfast was continental, and had a wide choice of fresh food, although the coffee wasn't the best.

The staff were what made the place, really friendly and helpful, and always willing to share their knowledge of the local area. The owner, who seems to work all day everyday was especially nice, but was always cheerful. All the staff spoke good English too, which was excellent.

Overall, a really nice hotel for the price; clean, comfortable and great location, highly recommended.
