Reviewed 30 August 2011

This hotel is a small boutique hotel right in Carlsbad. It is a bit difficult to find by car as there is no parking available but once reached the hotel the receptionist was mostl greatful to help and advise where to park and how to get there. the rooms were great. light spacious and the bathroom feels just like being home. the rooms were also very kleen and modern equipped. i suggest a room with a view as we looked onto a construction side. the breakfast was great. sufficient and good choice. not your english but certainly contiental europe breakfast with fruits, cheese etc. they also have a discount available at the nearby spa which is recommened to book in advance.
Being in czech quite often, this is one of the most friendly staff i met. all of them were polite and always helpful. would always recomend to go back there as they just made our stay unforgetable.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location of this hotel is wonderful. It is in the centre of town, making it very easy to walk around and see the sights.
We arrived by train and used a taxi both ways to the railway station. This part of town is pedestrianized giving it an old world feeling and this, together with the beautifully maintained buildings, make it a delight to just wander around this elegant town. There are a lot of nice restaurants not only around this hotel, but also in the newer part of town, which is not far to walk.
The staff at reception were very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
The breakfast room was cheerily decorated, the staff gracious and the food excellent.
Our double room was large, with comfortable beds and plenty of storage space. It was tastefully decorated and everywhere was very clean and well maintained. Free internet access was available, with reception providing a cable for use in our room. There is an
elevator.

We stayed at Hotel Palatin for 3 nights in mid-July. Our room was nr. 1, with windows facing the backyard wall. No view whatsover. It doesn't sound so good, but for us it was perfect! The weather was terribly hot outside but our room stayed nice and cool and we could even keep the windows open at night, without any noise coming from outside, which was unbelievable considering the central location. The room was very clean and so was the bathroom, which also had a window. The breakfast was pretty basic, but everything was fresh and it didn't leave us hungry.

The lady at the reception was extremely friendly and helpful. Also other staff members were very nice and always smiling, which made us feel welcomed. Overall Hotel Palatin is a very nice little hotel with excellent value for money.

Hotel Palatin has very nice rooms (though sometimes a bit small); bathrooms are very spacious. Very clean; breakfast also good. Only the reception area could use some uplift. However, you cannot park anywhere close since this hotel is in the pedestrian area. Closest available parking is either on the hill opposite or in Hotel Thermal. The pedestrian area in front of the hotel is currently being renovated; so still some noise but should be finished any time soon.

The no. 1 ranking of this hotel in Tripadvsisor is not deserved. The hotel is very centrally located, which is of course advantageous in many ways, but also means that getting to the hotel by car and parking are very complicated, and that the rooms can be noisy at night. The hotel is well and tastefully reconstructed. Bathrooms are very good, the hotel is clean. Beds and breakfast are only average. There are no blinds in the rooms; the rooms are lit by the street lighting at night, which I found not comfortable for sleeping. Hotel Palatin is not a bad choice, and it offers good value in a city where hotels tend to be overpriced, but I don't I understand the enthusiastic reviews on this website.

We stayed at the hotel during Christmas and we had a very good time. The rooms are very clean and spacious, tasty breakfast with lots of choices for any taste. But the best thing about it was the receptionist, who was more than helpful and patient with all our questions and demands, making reservations for us, helping us in choosing restaurants and even a place for the Christmas Eve dinner, when we thought that we will end up staying in the hotel room, as most restaurants were closed on the 24th of Dec.
What bothered me a little bit was just that the hotel advertises some pictures with a swimming pool and a jacuzzi on the site, that enables you to think that they have one, but they don't, it's actually the Castle Spa (which I do not recommend) that gives a discount for the hotel costumers. Of course they never say we have a swimming pool, but if you don't have one, don't add pictures of one.
Another thing would be that they stop the heating in the rooms at about 10PM so it gets cold during the night, but they have plenty of blankets in the wardrobe so you won't feel that cold.
Overall our experience with the hotel was very pleasant and if we ever go back to Karlovy Vary, we will probably stay there again.
