We stayed for three nights in this beautiful Grand Hotel. The location was perfect and the suite we ordered was beautiful. But the service was bad. The the hotel personnel was haughty and condescending. They let us know that they only care about guests who stay at the other half of the hotel facing the river. "You should never order a room using booking.com, the reception manager told us. You should have known that your part is mostly for German groups. When we asked for an extra pillow we were told that this service is only provided at the other half of the hotel. We ate at the very very fancy Grand restaurant. Our table was not ready at the time we ordered. And this is not because the restaurant was full. It is because they are short on staff. The meal was actually pretty good, but not any better than other popular Czech restaurants outside. The beautiful hotel casino closed the doors because of the covid-19 and never opened again. The beautiful hotel bar is also closed down during weekdays and opens only for weekends. I am sure that the problems results from the covid-19, and the low occupancy, despite significant price reductions, which leads to bed service and poor reviews. The beautiful swimming pool, in which I was the only swimmer was really beautiful with lots of facilities. My wife enjoyed a very good massage at the hotel spa. All together: a beautiful Grand hotel which is undergoing a tough period

Excellent hotel...make sure you request a room with forest view if you are on park side.. some rooms look out on a wall... super high ceilings, large rooms, pillow menu, great varied breakfast... the spa on the 1st floor is compact, a salt cave, swimmingpool, whirlpool, steamroom etc...the Diana funicular is right behind the hotel...well worth a ride up.

The hotel is very old the rooms are terrible and run down The view from most of the rooms is not as presented in the web site The rooms facing the so called “forest” are mostly facing a wall and the the operating area of the hotel The so called “spa” is nothing near to be called a spa Further more there is no hot spring water in the hotel for which you visit karlovy vary For conclusion very very disappointing.

Service-impeccable. Rooms-luxurious. Breakfast-indulgent. Location-perfect. An incredibly beautiful hotel that exudes grandeur and comfort. Also, on the fun side, Casino Royale and Last Holiday were filmed there so grab your chips, head to the casino and enjoy!
