Stayed here for just one night but it was a luxurious stay. Lovely rooms and a great hotel. The swimming pool is indoors and lovely. Had a nice swim. There are hot water springs nearby where you can sip the spring water. Would love to come back here.

The hotel is beautiful and classy, in a great location in Karlovy Vary. While very grand, it suffers a bit from its age. Rooms are not very efficient (and mine was to tell the truth a bit tired). They have no air conditioning, and older appliances (but incredibly fast wi-fi for some reason). Common areas are very nice and the... More

It was a fantastic stay, with superb room, nice staff and great food. The breakfast is one of the best I have experienced in hotels recently. They have a very nice pool, what they didn't tell us at check in (neither at reservation) that it can be used between 1pm and 3pm with children under 15!!!

The hotel interior is very nice, very well kept. The room is old fashioned, with eclectic furniture solutions. The staff is professional but not up to the 5 star standard. We expected more hospitatilty from a 5 star hotel staff, not just professionism. No smile, sometimes they behave like a burden to work there. We had often the feeling they... More

Beautiful, charming hotel in a picture-perfect setting. The hotel has one of the prime spots in Karlovy Vary, just where the river turns. You can thus look down the valley in two directions. Try to get a corner room in the front looking directly down the river. The hotel’s facade is in a great condition, and it is nicely lit... More

Nice building and great location, its definitely a historical jewel, and you can tell that back in time it was the favorite destination of european aristocrats. But currently the hotel is not well maintained, rooms look a bit old, and in general most of the services do not deserve 5 stars.

Nothing beats a classic and this is certainly one: one of the iconic hotels of good old Europe, the Grand Hotel Moskva during communist times, then - albeit cinematically relocated to Montenegro: even a James Bond location (Casino Royale). Knowing that my grandparents loved holidaying here, I was rather thrilled to finally experience it myself... The entrance still has the... More

We stayed here one night over Easter. When we drove up, we weren't sure where to check in (the entrance isn't so "grand"). My husband walked over to the car park attendant to ask... the clerk was very curt, until he realized we were paying guests, then he became hospitable. Check-in was fine, and the attendant who took us to... More

One of the most fantastic hotels in Europe. Superb, or should I say su"pupp" experience, historic, lavish, gentile , cultured and reassuring in its own confidence and capability to uphold its reputation as one of Europe’s best.

As frequent visitor I found Pupp this time (March 2014) very quit, probably this is the result of the current Crimea Crisis. It seems that “Russian” guests are not traveling so extensively to Karlovy Vary at this moment. Therefor some “Arab” guests took their place. Although the room presented to me was good and sufficient some minor remarks can be... More

As well as modern-day celebrities, the hotel has also attracted eminent historical figures from culture and the arts including German poet and philosopher Johann Wolfgang Goethe, composers Johann Sebastian Bach, Richard Wagner and Antonin Dvorak, violinist Nicolo Paganini, writer Franz Kafka and master of Art Nouveau Alfons Mucha.
