“Beer and Spa Lovers - Unite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

This is our third trip to this hotel and the primary draw is the Beer Spa. The hotel is good (better than average) and is very clean. They add a nice touch by providing their beer bath soap in the bathrooms. We obviously like the place and will be back again. The pluses and minuses are below:

+ Big room and clean
+ Co-located with beer spa
+ proximity to the cave restaurant (Ve Skale) where the food is good and reasonably priced
+ new pool decorated in the style of old brewing equipment
+ Breakfast is good and has jellies (jams) from their beer products
+ Beer is tasty and cheap
+ mini golf and bikes available
+ Wi-Fi (I thought it was okay, not great but it was free)

- Parking should be at no cost. It is cheap but because it is cheap, just throw it in with the hotel price.
- A coffee machine or kettle in the room for coffee would be nice.

The location is just south of the tourist town of Marinske Lazne and can be easily found off the road -- you will need a GPS or be good with a map if you are not familiar with the area.

Have a Great Trip

Room Tip: Definitely buy the beer and do a beer spa.

We came to this hotel solely to experience the beer spa, specifically the beer bath. The hotel is clean, friendly, comfortable and spacious. There are 2 restaurants on property. We went to the Ve Skále for dinner, which is literally a cave. The food was mediocre, but the setting was really beautiful and unique, and very enjoyable. The US dollar is so strong here...our dinner was less than $35 dollars with wine and beer! We purchased some of the beer cosmetics at the Ve Skále, along with beer to take home. The hotel also has some warm pools where you can soak and use the sauna...we didn't know this, but plan to utilize it next time we return! The beer bath was so wonderful!! We soaked in a large tub that was partitioned off by curtains...and the beer was so warm, and our skin was so soft! There is not much more to do here than the bath, but what a unique and relaxing experience! We do intend on returning for a quick overnight!

The hotel is average at best. It is set up purely for the tourist business based on being well-known for it's beer bath spa. Poor wifi, rooms are ok, the beer bath was too short, too expensive, and too early. We asked for late afternoon beer baths and were told they were all booked so we settled for 10am. We happened to go back later in the afternoon to find there were available baths. When we asked why we were not given these times, we were just given smiles and shrugs from the front desk. This is the only hotel in this small town (2 hours west of Prague) and you'd only visit Chudova Plana if you wanted to experience a beer bath.

Rooms are great, food fantastic and the beer is perfect. has something to do with brewing it right there, you can go on tours of the brewery and sleep well in confort.

Cant say more about thi splace the rates are great especially if your sharing and once again the beer is perfect!

Great chance to exlore some Czech Republic instead of Prague! you can get a real feel of the old european ways with out feeling lost, also there is a great cave resturant right around the corner.....

You should see this place in the snow too because it looks really great,

If you need a bath, no problem how about a soak in beer then relax in confort with a pint!

IT IS ACE!!!! TOP MARKS ONLY IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC!!!

Room Tip: If you can book at the yearly beer festival they have a market, barrel rolling, last year Burton bee...

Disclaimor: I have been to the Beer Spa at Chodovar five times and will probably be back again and again.
This is not a spa in the American-sense. You will not be pampered and made to feel like the most perfect and amazing person in the world, but you will have a heck of a good time, and the staff will ply you with beer the whole time. In true former-Eastern Bloc fashion, the staff at the spa, hotel and restaurants are brusque, but in a warm way. The food is hearty and made of fresh and local ingredients, the rooms are LARGE and comfortable and the beer tour is more up close and personal than many others I've been on around the world.
Chodova Plana is remote -- about 60 minutes' drive from Karlovy Vary. Be prepared to while away your time here between spa treatments.
Don't come expecting an American experience. This is one of those times where you'll just have to relax and have the adventure you left home to find. For the price, it'll be a great ride!

After 5 days in Prague we headed to Chodova Plana - very small nice city (or village) as it was mentioned before by a reviewer - in the middle of nowhere :))
Our main goal was to take a beer bath. And, yes, it was great, even more than great :)
hotel is not big, very clean, and i think it is rather new. We stayed here for one night.
Rooms are big.
Beer baths were really great thing!! During taking a bath you can also drink a special Chodovar beer. But, i still prefer Dark Kozel :)
If you are travelling by car, there is a car parking (price is 50 czk per night), i think it is rather safe, since it is secured with gates.
Breakfasts are classic european :) but, they were pretty go though.

Clean, modern and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful, but don't always speak English. The beer baths and massages are a unique selling point. As Czech beer goes, I have had better, but it was still good. The food was excellent and the service at the restaurant very fast.
The village is small and the only thing of interest is the hotel and brewery so there is not much to do there particularly in the evening. Mariankse Lazny/Marienbad is very close and is a fantastic place to visit. Access by public transport is not great, although there are trains and buses, so a car is useful. There are taxis which are fairly reasonable.
