“Well Run, Unique Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

I recently enjoyed a four night stay at the Aria Hotel. I would like to first commend the excellent, professional front desk staff who all speak strong English and do everything right. Good job, gentlemen and ladies!

I also enjoyed the music theme of the hotel. Each room has an apple TV and it is loaded with a great selection of diverse music. The art throughout the hotel and the music library were major pluses.

We took a junior suite and it was decently sized with an excellent bathroom with good linens and very good water pressure in the shower.

The hotel has a beautiful garden in back with a steep incline that has magnificent Prague views from the top. The roof-top cafe also has some dramatic views of Prague Castle and Mala Strana.

My only slight complaint about the hotel was in the food service. It was not at all bad, I just think it could use a little energy. The breakfast was very basic and seemed to be missing something. The restaurant upstairs, while good, suffered a bit from slow service and a difficult layout. It was also difficult to book, even for a guest.

The location of the hotel is excellent. Very close to the Bridge but you do not feel overwhelmed by tourists. It is in the embassy district so the area is very well maintained and safe. The street that it is on has some nice cafes and shops if you need a quick bite or glass of wine. Overall, I would recommend the hotel for sure. Perhaps a bit pricey but certainly a place that will not disappoint you.

Room Tip: There is no advantage to high floor room so take a lower floor with easy access to a wide staircase...

Stayed here with my wife and 2 "kids" ( 21 and 18 ) for 3 nights.
The hotel is perfectly located close to all the attractions in Prague a 4 minute walk from the Charles Bridge.
This hotel is updated, hip, and new. Very comfortable rooms which are reasonably large, bright well equipped bathrooms. Every room has an upmarket sound system with great variety of TV and music. Netflix is included. There is also a huge library of DVDs.
The service is outstanding throughout the hotel.
I must comment on the food. We debated whether to eat in the hotel restaurant but finally decided to do so on our last night. Don't miss the opportunity. The food was the best we experienced in Prague ( and Vienna and Salzburg for that matter ). We would have eaten here more often if we had not run out of time in Prague.

Don't miss the hotel gardens which are magnificent and peaceful too.

This being my first time going to Prague, I went on trip adviser and spent some time trying to choose a hotel. I picked a winner with this one!!!! It is located on the side under the Prague castle which is the side that i prefer after visiting Prague. It is in a central great location close to the Charles Bridge as well. The Hotel had a sedan that they used to pick up guests at the airport. It was very reasonable priced and the chauffeur was knowledgeable of the area and the hotel. He gave us a tour coming in to town from the airport. Our friends that we were meeting didn't know about this service and they took and tax. That was unfortunate for them. I think our driver name was Jacob and he was wonderful!
I had a upgrade from the basic room that our friends received and I loved it!! Our friends room was large as well especially for Europe standards and quite nice as well.
The check-in was a breeze and the Staff were wonderful, even the new trainee which was getting her name tag the next day. We kidded with them and I can't say enough about the Staff at this Hotel always smiling and very helpful.
We had to transfer to the Corinthian to start our cruise and it was a different experience there.
I also went on trip advisor for our first dinner. I chose Bellevue and it was wonderful!!

I loved this city! I loved this hotel! I could wax poetic on its virtues: location in the Little Quarter, views everywhere, helpful staff, hotel spotless, decor superb, comfy bed, excellent bathroom, Apple TV and music choices, access to the gardens out back, breakfast buffet, etc.etc. We had one issue with room service and a burger not cooked appropriately, but the apple strudel made up for it :). Look at the website, read other reviews, and know they are telling the truth! I've stayed at numerous five star hotels around the world and this deserves the accolades.

This hotel is beautiful, love the art throughout the facility, has the most amazing gardens that are "not to be missed" site. Very staff member I encountered from first arriving in Taxie up to departure, was very kind, helpful, respectful and just plain nice. I witnessed the staff here go above and beyond to help others in need. A definite place to return to for vacation. The location is very central to the many wonderful sights. Thanks Judy

During my recent business/pleasure trip to Prague I stayed at the Aria Hotel in the Mala Strana section of the city. I truly can't say enough about this hotel and the staff. The experience was extraordinary. First, the location of the hotel was perfect. It was less than a five minute walk to the Charles Bridge and the hotel is nestled on a fairly quiet side street a few buildings down from the US Embassy. Our room (standard deluxe) at the hotel overlooked the small public gardens that are integrated into the hotel's location. This room had the best view I have ever had at any hotel. It was amazing. The room itself was furnished very nicely. Housekeeping service was superb. Now onto the service...5 star! Prior to my stay I needed help obtaining train tickets down to Vienna. Ivana at the Concierge desk arranged for the tickets and helped me decide what I needed. The tickets were awaiting upon my arrival to the hotel. The hotel provides (within the room rate charged) a continental style breakfast (with your choice of eggs) each morning that was delicious. One of the best parts of our stay in Prague was the dinner we had one night at the hotel's rooftop restaurant overlooking the city (reservation recommended, it's not a large restaurant on the roof). The food was wonderful and the view from the rooftop was stunning! Overall this was the best experience I have ever had at a hotel. The friendly staff made me feel like royalty!

This place has it all. Strong location, near US embassy (if that matters to you) and plenty of shopping and dining nearby. Lovely rooms, plenty big, nice bathroom. Lobby is inviting and the second lobby/sitting area in the rear is pleasant for a late night drink. Service is polished, English spoken no problem. The food on site is good, not great, but who cares--there's plenty of spots to dine nearby. Turn down service, music/Aria theme makes the place, though pricey, something special.
