The lady in charge is delightful, the B&B is very clean and tidy and you get a daily room cleaning service for a price that's cheap for Karlovy Vary. The place is a 10 minute walk from the centre, in a quiet part of the town, up a steep hill, which may be a problem for some. It wasn't for me - it's an enjoyable walk past some lovely buildings. If you do not wish to walk, there are many buses that can bring you to a close-by bus stop.
On the downside, I asked the lady NOT to clean my room, as I do not like people entering my room whilst I am staying there, but she did so anyway.
Also, I found the room cold on the first night. I was told that the heating gets turned down at night, so I asked for an extra heater, which was given to me and I had to pay a (negligible) surcharge (50Kc) for it per day. On the third night however, the heating was left on during the night for some reason (which I was later explained: the owners simply decided that it was time to turn the heat on) and it became hot and stuffy in the room. Personally, I would have preferred to regulate the heating myself.
The wifi-internet comes and goes but I managed to do what I needed to do in the end.
Most importantly for me (and the main reason why I personally would not return to this guesthouse), if you are a sensitive sleeper, you will find the walls are too thin and the rooms/public spaces all to close to your bedroom. This is a shame since the location is super quiet and restful otherwise. I was unfortunate that both on the second and the third night, the guests were getting up in the middle of the night. The third night, the guests were actually up all night - coughing, toilet flushing, walking - I could hear all despite wearing ear plugs and only got 2 hours of sleep.
I was supposed to stay for 5 nights in this place but after the 3rd night of no sleep, I decided not to take my chances anymore. I would not hesitate recommending this guesthouse to anyone, who is not so ear sensitive as I am.
