Fodor's Review

Built in the late 1960s as the communist idea of luxury, this oversized modern hotel has a large rooftop swimming pool filled with warm mineral water. Even if you don't feel like a swim, it's worth taking the winding road up to the baths for the view. Another reason to visit: the hotel is the main venue of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in early July. Many people, though, consider it an eyesore that's out of step with the rest of the city.
