“Excellent - though a couple of tiny issues”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

The hotel is excellent in many ways. A couple of tiny issues brings my score down to four stars instead of five. Though still overall very good.

The location is perfect. Close to the Bridge but still just enough distance from the over-crowded places. The staff at the reception was very friendly and everything was fine with them. The premises are very nice as well.
These were things that deserve to be mentioned as above standard levels.

The room was OK, but no big thrills.
We had a luxury suite (Elvis theme) which was big, silent, clean. Two bathrooms, two TVs, kitchenette, separate living room etc. Not particularly luxurious, but OK. For the price I still would expect a bit more lux.

Tiny issues: the bed was hard. I know this is a personal opinion, but it was too hard.

Breakfast was basic good quality. No better than that though.
A bit dissapointing was the staff at the breakfast room. They felt tired and were not particularly friendly - however a couple of the younger staff were OK.

Finally I want to praise the room service meals. We ordered twice meals for two. All four meals were excellent and tasted delicious.

I went to visit my son in Prague for 10 days. After some research, this hotel looked to be among the best hotels in Prague, and indeed it was. First off, the location could not be better, being situated a short walk off of the main street that feeds into the Charles Bridge. Upon arrival, we were given an orientation tour, and a complimentary cocktail. The person who took us around even sat with us to make sure that we would get all of our questions anwered. Wow!!! What was really mind blowing was that the entire staff behaved this way. incredible!!!

The rooms are very spacious compared to other European 5 star hotels, and they are immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and even come with a mini theater system. Most importantly, the beds were of the highest quality, and extremely comfortable. The attention to detail really showed up in the indoor and outdoor decor. Both were extremely clean, and beautifully painted.

Although the breakfast that is included with the meal was described as continental, it was actually a full gourmet breakfast, with eggs cooked to order, Lox, artisan breads, and local goodies.The addition of a very attentive, and friendly, staff made each morning a real treat.

General ammenities included a fully stocked DVD collection mostly english language, and up to date. If we didn't want to watch a movie in our room we could use one of the two beautifully designed screening rooms, each with a full home theatre system, with Blu Ray player. This blew me away. There was also a workout room, spa, complimentary umbrellas, and afternoon tea. If it had rained the whole time I was in Prague, I would have been totally happy enjoying this hotel.

The best part of all is the price. We got all of this for the price of a 3 star American hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Aria. it is by far the best value in Prague.

Customer service is excellent. From front desk to housekeeping to restaurant staff, they will take the initiative to greet you when they come across you in the hallway. When you have a question or need help, they don't just give you a yes or no answer, but will actually help you find something that meet your needs.

Special thanks to the Concierge Ivana for helping me make transport arrangements to Cesky Krumlov and onward to Vienna, and for advice on puppet shows and shops. If you want to find something that is native to Prague/Czech, don't forget to ask her.

Also thanks to the chef in the restaurant. As I am a vegetarian and I can't eat garlic and onion, he has specially made some soup and gnocchi for my dinner and the dishes are delicious.

The hotel is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. It is just 5 minutes walk from Charles Bridge and 10 minutes from the Castle, which was good for me as I was trying to catch the sunrise and sunset photos at the Charles Bridge.

Before I arrive at the hotel, I think the hotel is a bit expensive. But after my stay, I find it worth the money because of its great customer service, location and neighborhood.

Rarely does a hotel hit all the right notes, but Aria does. From the fabulous, eager to help staff, to the marvelous facilities, this boutique hotel is platinum. Superbly situated within walking distance between major areas of interest, the hotel offers distinctive rooms dedicated to different composers. Our room had a large king bed, rare for Europe, an in room computer plus wifi, and a spacious bath and closet space. The decor is modern (yet warm), coordinated and first rate.

The positively gorgeous lobby area beyond the reception area is ginormous and filled with comfortable seating and alcoves to relax and have a drink or snack. Two giant skylights provide light over this and the adjacent bar/eating area. The included breakfast was marvelous, with eggs made to order. There is even a surround sound screening room with more videos available to view in it than many video rental places. What a great option for those rainy or too cold afternoons. My wife used the spa and said it was better than most in the hoity toits elsewhere.

We are extensive world travellers, and have pretty much nearly seen it all. The Aria is at the top of our list for amenities, great staff and superb comfort. Skip the plastic and glass high rise and go here. Did I mention the great staff? Every one of them was eager to help, from the concierge to the driver who picked us up from the airport. If you go to Prague, this is THE hotel.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the place.

Everything about Aria Hotel is top notch. We had a junior suite which was large and very comfortable. We took advantage of the three nights for the price of two offer, so the price was quite reasonable. The included breakfast was fantastic. The concierge Ivana was very helpful ... she found last minute tickets to an excellent concert at the Rudolfinum for us. The staff was super nice and since it is a rather small hotel they recognize all the guests as they pass through the lobby. We loved the free access to the Vrtbovska Garden, through a door at the rear of the lobby. We loved the artwork on display throughout the hotel. The location was great as well, a short walk from both the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge. The US embassy is a couple of doors away. It's a quieter and less touristy neighborhood than the Old Town Square area. Go for it!

We stayed here 7 nights on our recent stay in Prague and found this to be a wonderful hotel. It is not cheap, but at the same time, I think it is a good value based on the service and all the extras. The location in the Little Quarter is ideal, and just a little bit removed from the "main drag", while near everything. The breakfast buffet is very complete and very good quality food. The hotel has access to a wonderful garden in the back, and we spent a good bit of time there. We booked a Junior Suite--plenty of room, and the bath was spacious as well. Very professional staff. We ate at the affiliated restaurant, which serves both in a dining room on the first floor and on a wonderful rooftop seating area. Again, not cheap, bit very good food.
