Get to know its beauty and history

History

Karlovy Vary

It all began in 1358. At that time, Emperor Charles IV, enchanted by the healing effects of the hot springs, had built a small castle as the foundation of a new city. Today, our hotel lies above this castle. The city has undergone dramatic development, it burned twice and on another occasion was destroyed by a flood. The spa’s fame meant the city flourished unprecedentedly in the 19th century, when famous celebrities began to come to Karlovy Vary. Karlovy Vary experienced its biggest prosperity in the early 20th century. Nowadays, this fame is followed by plentifully reconstructed hotels such as the Ontario Hotel.

You can read more about the history of Karlovy Vary on the city’s official web pages.

We are a three-and-a-half-star hotel with a unique family atmosphere and a history spanning over 150 years. We are located in a unique and quiet location above the famous Mill Colonnade, just a few steps from the healing springs, right in the heart of Karlovy Vary. The hotel was built from a historic building named Ontario, built around 1855 and completely renovated in 2003-2005.
