Pension Villa Rosa
Ranked #23 of 91 Hotels in Karlovy Vary
Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

There's a reason that Villa Rosa is so highly rated. It's perched right above Karlovy Vary (one of the most picturesque places you'll ever visit). We had requested room
6 based on previous reviews and it did not disappoint, with commanding views and the lush Spring blooming before our very eyes.

Upon arrival Josef met us and it was obvious his English was limited. He communicated in Czech and me in Polish and it all just worked. He's so good natured and smiley that you can't help liking him immediately!

The room is spacious with good bed and individual doonas (like much of Europe). The room is well appointed and neat and modern, although the pillows are a little thin and could do with replacement. Tea and coffee facilities are a nice touch and there is a small fridge, safe and TV. The bathroom is compact but extremely clean. If some toiletries were provided, that would be great but that's just my personal opinion. Wifi is free and the connection is strong. There is car parking (for a fee) on site.

Breakfast takes place on the lower floor with a good selection of cereal, breads and condiments. They'll make up eggs for you as well.

The Villa Rosa's location requires you to walk down to the centre and it is hilly, but we did the walk happily a few times a day. It is about 10 minutes - easier down than up!

Karlovy Vary is extremely pretty - one of those places that you know you have to return to. I hope I'll be able to come back and if I do, I'll be choosing Villa Rosa for sure. For the price, you can't beat it!

We stayed here (room #1) for 2 days early February and enjoyed every moment! Stunning view from our balcony. Very clean, quiet, warm and cozy place with a friendly owner, Josef. Our welcome was a joy - felt like you were staying in someone's home. We loved walking to/from to Karlovy Vary town centre, though the pathways were in places slippery with the snow and ice. Josef cooked our breakfasts and whilst his English is very limited, we had no problems communicating. Thanks Josef for driving us to our next destination. Highly recommend this place.

The hotel Pension Villa Rosa is a very good place for stay both for families and individual visitors. The rates of the rooms are not so expensive, and therefore stay in the hotel provides very good combination of price/quality. The location of the hotel is very convenient since one can reach the center of the city in 15-20 minutes by foot. The hotel is located on the hill just in the front of the city center, and its view is absolutely picturesque and unforgettable. All facilities and their condition are very fine. The heating of the hotel is very good (I did stay in the room located on the ground floor and though it was on January (with its cold temperatures) I did feel myself very comfortably because even floors in the room are heated). The owner of the hotel is very intelligent and nice person, and she is very friendly with all visitors. The breakfast is typically continental and food is very good. If I will come to Karlovy Vary sometime in the future again, I will definitely stay in this hotel.

We stayed there for 6 days and enjoyed every moment! Stunning view from our balcony made every day special, especially watching New Year fireworks. Very clean, quiet and cozy place with friendly stuff. It may be difficult for people with walking problems, thought. It takes 10 minutes walk to all the beauties of Karlovy Vary. Would definitely come again.

Room Tip: choose the room with city view

I am trying to find words, which have not been used in the previous reviews, to describe our stay at Villa Rosa, but it's not so easy...
Our suite is warm, very clean and, like everyone else already mentioned, with a great view of the city!
The size of the suite is ideal for a family of four (children up to 5 yrs). The bathroom is new and always clean!
Coming to the breakfast, there is everything one needs to start the day and the wonderfully kind Wonder Woman, who takes care of everything in the house, is ready to cook an egg for you anyway you like it!
I have stayed in several "5 star" hotels so far, which offered several "in brochure catcher" services to make the stay enjoyable, but never managed to make me feel like not wanting to leave, as I do now...

I know that almost every review of this hotel begins by lauding the view, but the view is really that nice. Waking up to the town and river in panorama is a treat that should not be missed. Our suite was big and comfortable, with simple decor. Everything worked and the breakfast was very nice.

The small staff was friendly and helpful.

We had a double room and a suite between four of us. All had fantastic views and balcony but the suite is huge with really comfortable furniture. As the weather was a bit miserable during our stay it was nice to have somewhere cosy to come back to. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and eggs cooked to order. The staff we met were all very friendly though they mainly spoke German which limited conversation but that didnt matter at all. The walk down to town is a pretty way to approach centre and not too far at all. I would highly recommend Villa Rosa and especialy the suites.
