Just Perfect! We spent 10 days in Prague for a business conference and then were looking for a one day visit to Karlovy Vary. We loved the hotel and its location. The breakfast was very nice and the room (we went with an upgrade) was very very nice. As a U.S. traveler, however - I do have recommendations before you arrive in Karlovy Vary and this hotel.
We took the bus from Prague (a very nice 2 hour ride). We did not do as much research on the town or maps as we should have. So when we arrived at the bus station (on a Sunday morning) - there were no maps or directions easily available to determine how to walk to the hotel.
We ended up taking a cab...which drops you off on a pedestrian only street - so if anyone has large or heavy bags - it might be an issue to walk to the hotel. But what a great location! Once we had a map - the city is very easy and we were able to walk back to the bus station for the return trip to Prague.
One other thing to know - the front desk clerk spoke very little English and in fact we spoke the enire time in German. So recommendations for restaurants and tours would have been a little more difficult if the conversation had been entirely in English.
Karlovy Vary was a unique (and expensive place) so the wonderful rate for the hotel was quite lovely. We also ate dinner at a great restaurant down the street (actually off the main street) call the "Soldier"? Wonderful Czech meal.
Unless you are really signing up for the spa treatments or want to spend time with high-end shopping...Karlovy Vary can be seen and enjoyed in one or two days.
