The fourth stop on a cycling tour of the Triglav NP in the bustling centre of Bovec. The Hotel Alp is a modern construction at the heart of the small town. Know as the adventure capital of Slovenia, Bovec is expanding fast and there is potential for all sorts of fun in the area besides excellent mountain bike trails.
The staff at reception were polite but obviously more used to tour parties than independant guests. After parking our bikes in the ski room we had to find our room on the second floor. Without a floor plan and with all our luggage in tow that was no easy job. The building is a rather confusing design till you get used to it.
Our room was large, cool and clean. After the awful beds at the Hotel Krn we were able to enjoy a good night's rest again. Our window looked west over the town towards the mountains but we had no balcony. There was a shower rather than a bath: And the extractor fan worked- again a little something the Krn lacked.
Breakfast was taken in a separate section of the dining room for independant guests. There was plenty and to spare on offer.
There was a lively pool and cafe/bar area but with so much to do in the area it seemed a shame to linger. Other than that we found our two nights at the Alp rather bland and featureless.
