First visit to Karlovy Vary and great stay at the Marttel. No luxury hotel here, but it has everything we needed and then some for a definite bargain. The room was spacious and very clean, breakfast was very good with a great selection of cold cuts, bread, cereal, fruits, etc. Dinner was excellent, the menu is small but good Czech food, for three nights we tried almost everything and it was all delicious, tasted like home cooked meal.
The wellness area is compact but comfortable sometimes a bit crowded but you'll get the most of it if you're willing to be a bit flexible, it's open from 4pm until 8:30pm depending on how busy the place is. There is a good selection spa procedures, we tried the reflex massage and moor wrap and they were both terrific and not so expensive.
The staff was young and very helpful, their English is so-so especially in the restaurant, if you want to pay by credit card for dinner, you better let the servers know, you have to take care of your bill at the front desk, the restaurant is cash only.
The only issue we had was the strong cigarette smoke in the lobby and the stairways. The hotel is supposedly non-smoking except in the bar, but smoke was all over the place every day during our stay. Not the end of the world but a definite turn-off for non-smokers, especially in a "wellness" hotel. Overall great stay.
