We stayed several days at the Aria hotel in the Mala Strana section of Prague. The hotel is beautiful and has a musical theme throughout. The entrance to the hotel is marked with a music note above the entrance way, the carpets have music notes on them, and each room on every floor has a musical theme from classical to rock and roll. The room keys are shaped like G clefs, there is a piano in the main dining area on the lobby level, and you can borrow musical DVDs to play in your hotel room. Overall it is a music lovers paradise.
The staff is helpful and accommodating and everyone went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The hotel is about a 4-minute walk to the Charles Bridge and is within easy walking distance of the main sights and attractions in Prague.
The only negative during our visit was that our air conditioning unit in the room didn't work well and it was always hot. We were told the AC could not be regulated from our room as multiple rooms were controlled by a single unit located elsewhere in the hotel. The staff brought in a fan for us, which was helpful, but a high-quality hotel like this should find a way to fix the air conditioning in its rooms, especially in August.
The hotel has a beautiful UNESCO world heritage garden on site and a wonderful rooftop terrace from which you can see the red rooftops of Prague and many of the main monuments and sights. The Prague Castle is a short walk from the hotel and the U.S. Embassy is just up the street. At night the terrace is a great place to see the lights of the city.
Despite the inconvenience of lacking air conditioning, we would definitely recommend the Aria and would plan to stay there again the next time we visit Prague.
