“Good hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Hotel is very good located in pedestrian area in city center. Only no very good thing on hotel is - do not have parking space. If you go to this hotel, you need to parking in hotel Thermal parking space. Parking place is paid aprox 10 eur / day. You need to walk aprox 10 minutes to hotel Palatin. So my comment - if you come for 1 night stay, take only handbag.
We had room on 2 floor, room is very big, very big bed, bathroom is also big size. My personall feeling was - the bed mattress is too soft for my.
Breakfast menu is diverse and good quality.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

Stayed for one night in a huge room with even bigger bathroom with 2 sinks - I think that's overdoing it a bit.
Nicely situated in the city center next to the colonnade with the hot springs taps where ever local gets his/her mug full of hot and very badly tasting water.
Interesting walk across the city that houses great scenic and decorational subjects - amongst other the big (very big) hotel from the James Bond movie "Casino Royal". Lots of shops with jewelry and souvenirs and tourists mainly from China and Russia. Local staff do not speak English very well - not even in the most succesful restaurants, but a bit of German will do.
Hotel staff very poor in English as well, but helpful and friendly.
You have to park the car (and pay for full days/nights) something like 1,5 km away - and it's difficult to find ones way when getting to the hotel by car to load of your goods as all roads are one-way - even our GPS lost it several times.
Breakfast was quite average - nice and clean, few bits of meat, some cheese and cereals and coffe/tea/juice. Nothing special but not bad at all.
Should I come back here, I'd probably stay at a less expensive hotel a bit out of the center.

Located in the middle of the pedestrian street in Karlovy Vary, there's only a short walk to all the attractions.

Room was large and bathroom was even larger. Well kept and functional. Beds were too soft for my taste. I think it was ok for a single night, but if I were to stay longer I would chose something with a little more atmosphere.

The breakfast was in all respects mediocre - the quality of the produce was low, the bread was bordering stale and the juice had been poured into glasses for hours. Breakfast was definitely a regarded an annoying cost rather than a service to the guests.

Reception staff was correct, but neither helpful nor welcoming. The breakfast waiter rates amongst the most inefficient I have ever experienced and the used tables were left uncleaned until the end of the breakfast period.

All in all it was ok value, but I doubt I will ever come back.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else....

We recently stayed at the lovely Hotel Garni Palatin for one night and it was a great experience. We arrived a bit early, but our room was already ready and we were able to check in. The room was average-sized, but with a large bed. The bathroom was absolutely massive, with 2 sinks and a big shower stall. Everything was spotless and felt spacious because of the airy and refreshing decor. The windows open onto the main promenade of the city, but that was not a problem for us because it was very quiet. The one improvement I would make to the bedroom is the addition of blinds -- there is only a sheer curtain that does not keep any light out and not everyone wants to wake up at 6am with the sun!

The breakfast the next morning (served from 8-11am) was quite extensive, typical continental fare, and more than sufficient. The location of this hotel could not be better, and I would venture to say it is probably the best-located hotel in Karlovy Vary as it is right between the older and newer parts. The only downside was that the reception desk was not staffed all the time: we stored our luggage after check-out and when we came back to retrieve it, we had to wait 10-15 minutes for the receptionist to come back. This was even after ringing the bell outside. We did not really mind the wait but if there had been a real emergency this would not have been good.

We stayed here for a week in feb 2011 and we payed very little and were expecting a cheap hotel we could use as a base whilst we popped around the Czech Republic but we were very impressed, check in was very easy and the room was very big for the price and was very bright and airy. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was nice and clean but also upto 5 star hotel bathroom standards i have stayed in in London. The location of this hotel is right in the middle of things and even breakfast which was included in the price was more than acceptable. We were so pleasently suprised with this hotel and when we return to Carlasbad and Marienbad we will stay here again. One of the best value for money hotels we have ever stayed at.

Room Tip: The in hotel massage is very reasonable and worth a go.

This hotel is a small boutique hotel right in Carlsbad. It is a bit difficult to find by car as there is no parking available but once reached the hotel the receptionist was mostl greatful to help and advise where to park and how to get there. the rooms were great. light spacious and the bathroom feels just like being home. the rooms were also very kleen and modern equipped. i suggest a room with a view as we looked onto a construction side. the breakfast was great. sufficient and good choice. not your english but certainly contiental europe breakfast with fruits, cheese etc. they also have a discount available at the nearby spa which is recommened to book in advance.
Being in czech quite often, this is one of the most friendly staff i met. all of them were polite and always helpful. would always recomend to go back there as they just made our stay unforgetable.
