Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This hotel has a great history but seriously need some reconstruction.
Our suite was nice and well located but need some painting for sure.
Staff seemed kind of confused and not really sure what to do.
Location is just perfect, walking distance everywhere

Room Tip: Large suite

Hotel is very nice, clean, pleasant, rooms with the nice view in the city and countryside around.
The new wellness is beautiful, only problem with some foreign guests, who dont respect the rules /written on many places/ and stay in sauna in their swimsuit.
Staff is very pleasant in hotel and also in the restaurants and bar.Only breakfest is not so good as it is normal in other the 5-star hotels. All served on small tables, without fantasy and the food doesnt look so attractive.

It is Grand by all means. I always say the reception staff gives you the first impressions about the hotel. The reception staff were very nice and helpful. They accompanied me to show me around the various room options. the room was very nice and spacious. Breakfast was rich. We visited the bar and had dinner which we liked a lot. Grandhotel is a landmark in Karlovy Vary and extremely convenient to walk around. In short, we loved it.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the river

I believe this hotel is definitely over rated, the new spa they have just opened is horrible with the rudest non english speaking staff and 3 times the price treatments, room furniture is old and the bed mattress gives is also old and gives you back pain when you wake up in the morning (dunno where queen Latifa was filming when she was laying in bed with silky bed sheets and fluffy matress) . I am stuck here with a spa package for 14 days and today is day 1 :(. Avoid it if you can guys

My wife wanted to go ever since she saw the movie Last Holiday. Unfortunately we were scammed by Hollywood. We booked 3 nights but before even staying one night we wanted to back out of 2 nights and only stay one night. No way. They would not let us. Do I need to say more. The only thing positive about this place is how it looks from the outside. Get your self a hotel with A/C that has a view of this place and you will pay 1/2 and be 10 times happier

Room Tip: Choose a hotel with a room that has A/C and a view of the Grand

My husband and I celebrated our wedding day in Grandhotel Pupp (the wedding ceremony as well as the wedding reception) and it was absolutely amazing!

The building of Grandhotel Pupp and especially its interior is incredibly beautiful, it looks like a palace from a fairy tale. I really think it´s the best place for a lovely and unforgettable wedding. The service was perfect and all of the staff were helpful. They fulfilled our wishes even before we could say them aloud!!! It was tactful and discreet. They really made us feel like some Hollywood stars. Our meal was delicious and the chocolate cake with sour cherries and Belgian chocolate was sensational, we most certainly loved it all!

And our hotel suite was amazing - big, bright, stylish and elegant. And the bathroom? Simply a dream. A small wedding surprise was prepared for us here, it consisted of bowl of fruit, champagne, bouquets of roses and on our king-size bed there was a heart made of rose petals.

We also visited the brand new Royal spa and wellness and it was also a breathtaking experience. The hotel building is very elegant and you really can feel the special atmosphere inside, but the spa is modern, trendy and very original. We have never seen anything like this. Everything is so clean. The staff is very helpful and your only business is to relax and enjoy your time in this special place.

If you want to make your holiday a five star experience then go and visit Grandhotel Pupp, I´m convinced you will not want to go home and soon you will return! There is absolutely nothing to complain about..

Thanks to Grandhotel Pupp and its staff our wedding was the most beautiful weekend we have ever experienced.

Thank you so much once again!!!

Excellent hotel. Very luxurious spec in the rooms themselves, and throughout the hotel generally. Also, the place had a nice ambience and character. Very well located, on the colonnade, but just far enough away to be nice and quiet too. Service attentive, friendly and just the right side of obsequious (ie not too much).

Excellent on site spa - If you have few extra hours and would like to treat yourself, book an all day spa and let yourself be overly pampered :) It’s a wonderful place to spend a magical and a relaxing day. The service at this spa is incredible. The ambiance of the room is wonderful and the therapist was amazing. Relaxation is guaranteed.

Breakfast was very good. Unlimited buffet (hot and cold) and staff are very helpful. Food was fresh and of a high quality. Excellent service throughout the hotel. The hotel's Becher´s Bar is also recommendable - dishes plus drinks were imaginative and well-executed.
