“Old World Luxury, updated”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

I couldn't complain about anything but the hot weather--and the hotel provided a nice quiet fan to keep us comfortable. This is a truly charming hotel from the pleasant staff who struggle with limited English to make good two-way communication, to the clean and rather large well-appointed room (includes flat screen TV which we never turned on), to the large spotless modern bathroom. Climbing the steps to our third-floor room overlooking the river was a challenge (there is an elevator). FYI we were in room 301 (3 nites). All seems to be in tip-top shape--just like their restaurant (which I reviewed separately). And the breakfast buffet is unequivocally outstanding with a wide selection of many foods, all of prime quality.

Room Tip: #301 is upstairs--what we Americans call the 4th floor. No AC and the heat rises as one goes higher...

I stayed one night at Hotel Embassy, and I was mostly pleased with my stay. I had a very spacious room on top floor overlooking the Teplá river. The bathroom featured a bathtub and a separate shower cabin.

There are a few reserved guest parking slots on the street in front of the hotel, and I left my motorbike right there. Hotel staff helped me carry my luggage and had a nice little chat about my motorcycle trip.

Breakfast buffet was excellent: great variety of food of good quality, and the waiting staff were attentive and polite.

The main reason why I cannot give an excellent rating to this hotel is the fact that guests were smoking and apparently allowed to smoke in the lobby and in the rooms. The corridors reeked of cigarette smoke. Disgusting! Another guest just lit up her cigarette next to me when I was at the reception checking out. How inconsiderate! A suggestion to the hotel management: ban smoking in all areas, and you will have an excellent hotel.

I chose this hotel, from the hundreds available in Karlovy Vary, because of its central position. This was ideal. The view from our room at the front of the hotel was delightful - overlooking the water through the centre of the town and down the very green valley. The staff were exceptionally helpful. The breakfast (a buffet) was very good. I would definitely go back. But be aware, this is an ancient building - so there is no air conditioning. There is a lift, but there are also a few stairs to be negotiated.

Room Tip: We had room 301, which was wonderful.

For a deluxe room high season $195. The room (209)is overlooking the river but has no charm . It is large and has a marble bathroom with limited amenities and a musty smell .
Fantastic breakfast is included with on order omelets. Wonderful morning welcome from owners and daughters. In good weather, tables on a small foot bridge overlooking the river. Dedicated parking space in front of the hotel.
Very good restaurant in a cozy romantic room. Waiter very helpful allowed me to taste "russian caviar" which i did not like and which by the way should be called salmon caviar.

Room Tip: Facing the river and the street is more e pensive. No noise from the street.

Karlovy Vary counts many hotel, but this one proved to be an excellent choice ; we spent only one night ( a family of 4 with teenagers), but enjoyed the place very much. The location is ideal, on a quiet part of the main street ; the hotel bar, the restaurant, the breakfast hall and the rooms, they are all beautifully decorated ; the breakfast is fantastic !

We've had a longer weekend in Karlovy Vary at the beginning of December,and I have to say that I was very impressed by the service provided in this boutique hotel.
That's the beauty of a family run hotel: they pay attention to every single detail, making the customer feeling like the only one in the hotel. The stuff was very helpfull, room was large, very clean, decorated in a classical manner, food in the restaurant wonderful.
I saw pictures on the walls, with guests of the hotel, Madeleine Allbright, Robert Redfort, Michael Douglas,etc, but I felt like I wasn't less important than them, on the contrary!
I have to congratulate all the members of this family, involved in making this hotel such a warm, cozy and wonderfull place!

We have booked two rooms in this hotel for one night stay based on trip advisor reviews. The staff was helpful, our rooms were well sized, with a nice view to the river and the facilities expected in a 4 stars hotel, including free internet.
The hotel occupies two adjacent buildings internaly connected, so there some steps when you pass from one to another. The breakfast was good enough.
The location is excellent and it was very pleasant to have a car park just in front of the main door, for free and without previous reservation.
I found the hotel overpriced, compared with similar ones in Prague.
The hotel restaurant it's not a top one as they announce, however it's good and cozy and fairly priced.
