Hotel Romania Karlovy Vary was built in 1893 in the former Gartenzeile (now Zahradní Street) near the River Teplá as Kurhaus Romania and was the "dépendance" of Hotel Post. This hotel was located on the opposite bank of the River Teplá in the Egerstrasse (Chebská Street) and in the 1960s retreated with the entire Chebská Street, originally constructed in 19th-century and created a place for construction of Hotel Thermal. Hotel Romania was firstly owned by Anton Schwabb, subsequently bought and operated by Karl Wacker and Marie Zeinar. The hotel name "Erzherzog Albrecht" was being used for several years.
Kurhaus Romania was a modern electrified building with an elevator, cold and hot water in its rooms and central heating. At the beginning of the 20th century, the hotel extension was made simultaneously with the construction of the adjacent Main Post Office.
After the First World War in 1921, Romania was bought by “Duchcovsko - Podokělská dráha” company. At the end of the 19th century, this company expanded into mining area in the Sokolov region. In this house, the company had its headquarters until 1932. After that time only regional headquarters remained, but in 1940, in the context of the occupation, the headquarters of the company returns again to Romania.
Mining operations were nationalized in 1945. Subsequently, “Duchcovsko-Podokělská dráha” company was canceled and its property (including Romania) was incorporated into the national enterprise “Falknovské hnědouhelné doly”, later renamed as “HDB Sokolov”. The seat of the mining company moved to Dolni Rychnov, nearby Sokolov in 1946. Romania was still being used as an office building. At the beginning of the 1960s, the management of the newly built Fuel Combination in Vřesová had its seat in Romania. After completion, Romania became a business hostel and was being used in that manner until the early 1990s. In 1966, gas was introduced into the building.
After depositing Romania into the property of the newly established company “Sokolovská uhelná a.s.” a new phase of this building begins. The first major reconstruction took place in 1993 and the accommodation capacity in Romania started to serve the public again after many years. Individual rooms, including sanitary facilities, water distribution and heating were gradually repaired. Until 2009, Romania was being used as a guesthouse. The extension of the dining room on the ground floor and the subsequent opening of the restaurant is creating Hotel Romania. It has exclusive location between the spa and business zone in Karlovy Vary, a favorable price policy and quality of service.
The hotel offers accommodation in 32 rooms including breakfast. Of course, there is a separate bathroom with shower and toilet. All rooms are equipped with satellite TV, refrigerator, telephone, safe and Wi-Fi internet access. Guests can enjoy lunch and dinner at the Old Bohemian Restaurant, located on the ground floor of the hotel. It also has the possibility of parking near the hotel in Hotel Thermal's garage. Every year, the hotel visits around 5,000 guests from all over the world.
Hotel Romania is now being managed by Romania Ltd., which is a 100% subsidiary of “Sokolovská uhelná”, a legal successor, a.s.
