“not a Highlight !”
Reviewed 24 November 2009

Hotel Garni Kucera :
This really old hotel ( Goethe used to stay here one day ) is very central located near the big hot Spring . Room was basic, clean, but nothing special . Bathroom was renovated and OK .
Breakfastroom was too small, and the breakfastbuffet was not worth mentioning, the coffee was real poor.
Karlovy vary has not much to offer in the evening/ at night . Tourism is mainly attracting people who are retired and enjoying their old day.

I don't recommend staying here unless you HAVE to be in Karlovy Vary and there are absolutely no other options. Then, it should be fine.

The Good
The location is quite central, very close to the Grand Hotel Pupp, and the main thermal springs. That said, it's a small town, so most things are that close...

The Bad
The rooms were dingy. The towels were old and grayish and it looks like the soap may have been used before. Thin, cheap rug covered the floorboards. No TV, as advertised.

The breakfast was quite bad. Stale bread with no attractive spreads to speak of. Juice made from powder. One kind of sliced meat and one kind of cheese. Yogurt was fine.

The Ugly
The service was atrocious. When I first arrived, noone was at the desk. When she came, I went up to an office, where she mocked my language skills (I was operating in Russian), took phone calls and other guests ahead of me, actually yelled because I didn't have a print out of the reservation, and made insulting gestures.

Yes, this hotel is really the worst place I've been in my life. And I paid for one night 59€. The information they give in internet is totally erroneous. it's a pity that I didn't take photos from the hotel.

First of all, it's not a Hotel, it's a pension. And a sad, dark and over-paid pension.

In the breakfast room, all the glasses, forks, plates, etc are different. I had breakfast with a fork that say "Hotel Thermal" (a big hotel of Karlovy Vary).

Please, if you are thinking on going to Karlovy Vary, try to choose another place.

We stayed at the Hotel Kucera for one night in August. From its exterior photo on the internet, it looked to be quite charming. The location was excellent, and the price was about 30-50% less than most other properties we could find in Karlovy Vary. Well... you get what you pay for! Sure enough, the hotel is right in the center of the old town. The exterior is charming, but in a slightly run down kind of way. The people at the front desk were very friendly and spoke excellent English. Most of the hotel's patrons seemed to be Russians or Czech citizens. We were given their "deluxe" room (I think there's only one of those). It was a very large room with a very large bathroom (with shower only). It was very clean, but appeared to have been decorated in the late 1970's. It was a bizarre contrast of the old and the not-so-new: 70's formica bed underneath an ornate plaster ceiling and crystal chandelier! Very bizarre... There were two sets of huge french doors that opened up to the street below, and it was very nice to nap to the sound of the horse carriages clopping by. Breakfast the next day was satisfactory, although it was a little awkward eating in such a tiny room surrounded by Russian senior citizens (I think the average age of a visitor to Karlovy Vary is 75!). Overall it wasn't bad for the price, but I think next time I'll splurge and stay at swanky Grandhotel Pupp!
