Tradition since 1701…

🕰 A little time travel 🕰

Grandhotel Pupp is a 228-room neo-Baroque luxury hotel located in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Czech Republic. The hotel operates from 1701, over a three centuries now, and hosts the annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. It appears in many famous movies like James Bond Casino Royale, or Last Holiday (for more click here). The city is famous for it’s balneology, which is more than 600 years old. Thermal water rises from the Sprudel and the temperature of the water varies between 42 °C and 72 °C.

Arriving to the hotel, the main entrance is amazing and enormous. Stepping inside the lobby the crystal chandeliers, old fashioned furnitures, curtains gives you that classy feeling. I suggest to bring elegant or formal clothes.

The Rooms

If you want to book a modern design room, pick one from the Park Side. For more traditional experience go to the River Side. These rooms here have elegant 18th century design with traditional stucco decor and furnishings. Our room was one of these, a double room superior plus with an amazing view over the city and the river.

The Spa

The hotel is equipped with an spa area called the Pupp Royal Spa, and it is 1300 m2. The spa has a 15 x 7 metres relaxation pool with a temperature of 29 °C, and has small thematic pools with a temperature of 33 °C. On the lower part of the spa area is the sauna world with Finnish sauna, steam baths, ice fountain, showers and a relaxation room. Next to the entrance of the spa you will find the fitness center. Also the hotel offers a lot of treatments, massages, salt cave, cosmetique salon or dental center.


Grandhotel Pupp has a wide selection of high quality restaurants and bars offering Czech and international cuisine.

The main restaurant Grandrestaurant Pupp is an Á-la-carte restaurant offering French-style service. There is an amazing old English styled pub called the Becher’s Bar with a rich selection of cocktails, beers and wines. After 8 pm the bar has live music.

Malá Dvorana is an impressive lobby bar with a 19th century atmosphere containing a mesmerizing crystal chandelier. The menu in the Malá Dvorana offers small dishes and desserts with a wide range of drinks. And if you just want to have a cup of espresso or cappuccino with traditional cakes visit Café Pupp

Overall Grandhotel Pupp is an amazing choice in Karlovy Vary. And if you wanna become James Bond for a couple of hours, feel the atmosphere of the movie Casino Royale, the hotel has one of the most beautiful casinos in the Czech Republic. Here you can play American Roulette, Black Jack, Slot machines and Russian Poker.
