Having read the most critical reviews, I was prepared for a real disappointment, but got a pleasant surprise when we got upgraded to a spacious room with an adjactent part allowing each of us friends to have a private space. I admit that the windows are old, but that is a part of it´s charm. And the furniture and the bed were not at all in any bad condition, on the contrary. The cleaning was very good in every part of the hotel and also the spa gave a very good feeling. The spa treatments are of good quelity and Ms Irene taking care of the baths makes one feel very comfortable. We had a spa package prebooked, but in spite of mailing the hotel on beforehand they did not respond on my mail and we couldn´t get any information about the treatments available and if we had possibility to choose anything. So on Monday morning, without having met a doctor or a nurse each of us just got a paper with some for us unknown treatments prebooked. In my opinion a guest should get a chance to information and of possibilities to choose, I mean not everyone can take baths or have an unspecified massage. I was "lucky" and liked the ones pre-scheduled, it was baths and back massage. But my friend had problems with changing her scheduled treatments (they actually asked why we have purchased them in the first place- considering that we had no choice to choose the treatments that was a really bad comment made!), After having called our tour organiser the changing problem finally was solved. The pool has a floor of a kind of aluminium which gives a good fresh feeling. Even if the pool indeed is small, one has to think that it´s an old buildning and not a sports hall, and there were several moments when I could have a swim on my own, and swimming around in the pool gave a very nice experience because of the window part. The dining part was nice and gave a "Penzion"-feeling. We especially liked some of the staff there, they greatly contributed to the positive athmosphere while having breakfast and dinner. The last day of our stay they had a day off and we noticed that the bread slices had green dots - meaning that it definitely weren´t day fresh...On the breakfast buffe I especially liked a kind of porridge they served with milk. And they had a rich collection of tasty herbal tea infusions. The weakest aspect of the hotel is that apart from the young man at the restaurant almost no one spoke English, so we couldn´t get any information about what to see and where to go in the proximity of the hotel. The hotel itself is located on a height, but in it´s proximity there is an even higher mountain in the forest that leads to Jeleni Skok which has an amazing view of the old Karlsbad, not to miss :) The way to get to the hotel is going upwards, but it´s not so steep that a person with a normal condition cannot get there. In fact it´s good having a slow walk up back to the hotel after having spent an afternoon down in the centre of the old Karlsbad. Knowing what I know now, I can consider coming back to the Smetana Vysehrad again. It´s definitely a priceworthy alternative; not 4 stars, but cozy!…
My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend to let our hair down and to visit Karlovy vary and this hotel certainly did the trick. A comfortable 10 minute stroll to the centre of town and also directly at the start of the nice hike to the top of the hill. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and spacious and the wellness area was very nice. The included meals in the half-board package are really fair for the price.
This is a very nice and central placed hotel in Karlovy Vary , in walking distance ro Spa part and central part of town. fine rooms and a good pool and wellness area. The staff is very service minded and helpful
The hotel is located on a hill close to the Karlovy Vary city center. The room was big and clean but the breakfast was poor, comparing with what you usually get in a 4* hotel.There was no AC in the room but .The propriety has a free,secured,parking area for 6-8 cars only and if you travel by car,and you need a parking place please make sure you send a request to the propriety,and ask them to reserve one prior to your arrival .
A well kept hotel with the charme of a castle. Receptionists are friendly and hotel cleaning staff is very fast. The room we had, was clean and well equiped with a very nice bathroom. A big plus is swimmingpool and relax area without extra fee. The breakfast is european standard. The hotel is situated very good for both - taking long walks through the forests around Karlovy Vary and also visiting the city center. The parking lots at the hotel area are spacious and for free. For my opionion, the hotel rates are a little bit too expensive. It seems that the guests are mostly russian.
