A luxury hotel a stone's throw from the Grandhotel Pupp, Carlsbad Plaza is aimed at Karlovy Vary's wealthiest visitors. Everything here speaks refinement, down to the lunchtime dress code: "jacket and tie" for men. The staff tries hard to maintain the highest standards, but the overall effect can be fussy and distant. The rooms are tastefully furnished, with all modern conveniences. Reserve the "Moser Crystal Suite" if you've just cashed out your 401(k). The wellness center
(a small pool and sauna complex), spa, and fitness centers offer every comfort and treatment yet invented.
