Dear fellow travellers, Since the age of 14 I'm going to this hotel and it become like a second home to me.

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.... More

First of all, this is a pure spa-hotel in my opinion, so if you plan to spend just a few days in Karlovy Vary to enjoy the town itself (which is highly recommended indeed) then choose something else (we prefer Hotel Promenada, for example) and do not read this review. Say, location of Imperial on a hill top and well... More

The hotel was nice and the facilities were well maintained. However, the pool attendant was very very very rude!
