“family run hotel, fair value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

advantages:
english speaking, I liked the breakfast- it looked cute, even though it wasnt anything special; the rooms are clean and nice (good price quality value), free coffee downstairs, wifi was available even on the third floor, so that was a nice surprise, parking was available too.
disadvantages:
There is no 24/7 reception. Visitors be aware, you should always carry room card and key to the hotel entry. If you are late and forgot the key, there is no one to open the door for you, unless you call your friends and ask them to come down. I once forgot the key and stayed under the rain, persuading the hotel owner over the intercom to let me in (not having a key was completely my fault, i forgot it upstairs).The manager simply refused to help :(, but luckily i saw a visitor in the lobby and asked them to open the door for me.

Room Tip: the hotel is located on the hills, so third floor from one side means first floor from the other. ov...

We spent just one night at this hotel during KVIFF. Location was perfect, just few stairs and steps from Stara louka street. Arrival by car was little bit tricky, i could not find the way, but one phone call to hotel made it easier. There were two parking places next to the upper entrance to the hotel, i picked one, guess it can be harder to get a place if more guests would arrive by car.

Check-in really quick and smooth, we were given a large room on the 3rd floor. room was absolutely ok. Breakfast was very good, even though we came liitle bit late (about 10:15), hotel staff were friendly a let us eat with no rush.

Only downside of our stay were higher prizes for room(about CZK2500) and parking CZK250 due to KVIFF. but i get it;)

Would came again and can recomend!

We only had a couple of days in Karlovy Vary and our stay at the Boston was adequate. The staff are Ok and the breakfast was ample. Good location.

Room Tip: Try for a front room and as high as possible as no real view available. Good value though.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at this Hotel on a four day holiday in Kalovy Vary. We arrived in Kalovy Vary on a express bus from Prague Airport which stopped at the bus station. We found the Tourist Information Office located in the bus station very helpful. The Hotel is in the posh part of town, about 5-10 minutes walk from the Hotel Grand Pupp. It is off the main street Stara Louka. We thought it was good value for money. The room was a good size with comfortable twin beds. The bathroom was also a reasonable size with a quality shower and fittings. The room had satellite TV but the range of channels was limited. A buffet breakfast was included in the price of the room. The food available was fresh and plentiful. The staff at the reception were friendly and informative. We liked this Hotel and plan to return for another short break later in the year.

My husband and I went on a quick trip to Prgague and Karlovy Vary, just to see the sights and have a nice visit to the baths. We found Hotel Boston, Karlovy Vary, on booking.com, and we loved it. The place was not very easy to find, even the GPS got a bit lost becasue it did not see the pedestrian zone, but we found it nevertheless relatively soon, and parked right at its door (for 5 euros a day). The staff were very nice, helpful, speaking several labnguages (though not Hungarian :-)!), the breakfast (included in the room rate) was plenty and excellent, except for the surprise of the orange "juice": it was really organe flavored soda! The room was not very big, but for a few nights it was very good, the bed was very comfortable, the whole hotel was clean and tidy. There is no restaurant, but a breakfast room, but there are lots and lots of restaurants of all kinds neraby. The hotel is very close to the promenade, just have to walk down a few stairs. We enjoyed every minute of our stay!

The hotel is just a few steps from the "Promenáda" the main street of old Karlovy Vary but still, its price compared to other hotels in this area, is relatively low. I've got a strong feeling this hotel is run by a family who wants to get this facility into mainstream: all of the staff, especially the lady at the reception were friendly, filling up this small hotel with a positive feeling. For instance, we arrived by car and there were no usable spaces left at the rear parking place, so she told us to park in front of the building at a private spot belonging to a different building. Our room was nice and comfortable, the bathroom clean and well equipped (there's a shower only, but it's fine with us). The wifi connection is usable, but might be a bit slow. The breakfast was excellent, especially, the rooms where we were sitting, the tablecloth looked like we are at a four star hotel. Sausage, salami, ham, vegetables, oatmeal and yoghurt were on the menu, all perfect quality.
Again, it was a nice stay and I can only recommend this place.
