We found the Hotel Imperial on the internet and it immediately appealed to us because of their inclusive in house spa treatment package as opposed to some hotels in town that offer only rooms and spa treatments at facilities elsewhere. Our enquiry and booking was dealt with by Lada Kalmanova who was very helpful and efficient throughout. The approach to...

Hotel Imperial is what you'd think about when you're picturing the grand days of the early 20th century. To stay in this most iconic spa hotel in Karlovy Vary is to experience elegance from another time — an absolute glamour, relaxation, and incredible dining. Our superior room was simply gorgeous. Our dining experience at the hotel's sumptuous Restaurant Paris was...

Whilst walking around Karlovy Varly we visited this grand hotel for a drink. As non residents we were treated royaly whilst we had a refreshing beer in the lobby cafe. Beautiful decor, befitting the grand old lady that she is. Highly recommend with stunning views atop Karlovy Varly.

We stayed here as part of a tour, and I had asked about the prices to consider additional days. It is not cheap. However, the hotel is worth stopping for dinner or breakfast in their dining room just for the art deco architecture and detailing. As a hotel, it was very nice, although perhaps not the best buy in Prague.

This hotel presides over the city like a palace. A bit away (about 1 mile) from the wonderful town's promenade, approaching this hotel sets you back to a different time, when grand hotels were grand, and when guests were in fact or at least treated as royalty. Well, like a mirage the closer you get, the more reality kicks in....
