Fantastic Hotel in a central location. Have stayed here twice on visits to Karlovy Vary,yes it caters mostly for Russian clients but the reception staff speak fluent english,special mention to Eva,Mark,Vraclav? & Helena. Nothing was too much trouble including letting us use the computer printer to check in on line for the flight home.
Check out all the spa's.Turn right out of the hotel and keep going & you'll pass the largest,then on to Swiss Collonade,really pretty,then keep going following the river Tepla to a beautiful collonade with loads of spa springs surrounded by stone columns.
A good place to sit & watch the world go by,drinking & eating a wide variety of yummy cakes is The Elefant Cafe just over the bridge from the hotel. This is surely one of the prettiest towns i have ever visited apart from Hotel Thermal (built by the Russians) a bleak grey 'Blot on the Landscape'
