As indicated in my recent review of the Euro Hotel in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, I was again surprised at how much different reality is as compared with the staged photos of the hotel. This hotel is also situated on a very busy and noisy downtown street a few walking minutes from a bus terminal, shopping district and shopping mall. It is located across the street from a park. (Be sure to check out the old ruins.) The bus terminal, shopping district and mall are very much a teenager hangout spot. (I have given my location rating an 'average' due to the hotels convenient downtown location. It is not conveniently located from the Autobahn.)
That being said, the hotel owners/staff proved very efficient, very friendly and very proud of their unique Alte Bank hotel. We had dinner in the slightly overpriced hotel restaurant but were not disappointed with the food or service. (The Spargelsuppe was incredibly delicious.) The excellent food and service was emphasized by the fact that even persons not staying at the hotel patronized the restaurant and outdoor dining patio. The breakfast buffet was very good and included fresh salmon, breads, fruit, lots of hot coffee, etc.
The hotel room did not have any air conditioning. Our 2nd floor room opened out onto an old rooftop patio with a limited view of the surrounding buildings. Noise from the street was always present. The small standard bathroom had a shower area with a shower curtain that did not prevent the bathroom floor from getting wet. The room had a safe to lock up your valuables. The hotel did have an elevator, making it easier to move our luggage. Wifi is available but you must join the network to access it. There is very limited and narrowly spaced on site parking.
