“Musical gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

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.

Room Tip: The Junior Suites at the end of the floor are spacious and beautiful.

Dear David T,

Thank you so much for posting a review of the ARIA Hotel following your recent stay with us and I am pleased that it was a memorable and that you felt it was wonderful. We are very proud of our little gem.

The interior is very beautiful with lot’s of artificial pieces throughout and the thought and detail of the property is carefully maintained to a very high standard. We do pride ourselves in keeping up to date with modern technology and therefore all are rooms are equipped with Apple TV devices, docking stations and high quality sound system. As you said - it really is a music lovers paradise!

I am pleased that you found the staff to be accommodating and helpful and that you felt this made your stay really pleasant.

I am genuinely sorry that you experienced an issue with the air conditioning. The A/C system at the ARIA should most definitely be able to deliver more than sufficient cold to every room of the hotel and this is really not something that we receive such comments on as a rule. I have already talked to our Chief Engineer and we are working on improving the A/C system in the entire hotel already.

I have passed your kind words to all the team and we do hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back when you next will be visiting Prague.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance at any time.

Warm regards,

Jiri Hlavaty

This hotel saved our holiday in Prague. We decided to cut our losses in a decidedly non 5 Star hotel and sought refuge in the 'oasis of cool' that is the Aria. From the friendly reception (thanks to Asst Manager Martin Kabat for the welcome, the upgrade, the complimentary breakfast on our arrival, and the offer of a car to collect us) to the Sinatra themed suite with an AppleTV/sound system - the hotel made our holiday memorable. On a very hot weekend in July the ambience of the hotel was a joy. Room key access to the beautiful formal garden adjoining the hotel was a delight. The many favourable reports on this hotel can be trusted. The Aria Hotel tries very hard to please - and succeeds.

Room Tip: The rooms are music themed - ask for a room that suits your taste in music.

What a pleasure it was to move to this hotel after staying two nights in the old town. This area of the city is magical at night as the hordes of tourists flock to their hotels in the old town area. The reception staff are outstanding in every way. We felt like we were regulars coming back and as a result we will return. The concierge did a fabulous job getting us a guide for a walking tour. The staff in the main floor restaurant were divine. The rooftop restaurant staff worked hard to ensure we could celebrate our anniversary in style. My massage by their in house masseuse was just what I needed after touring for over two weeks. We de recommend the spacious junior suite. The music theme throughout the property is so wonderful as is the proximity of the garden that we enjoyed each day. The nightly turn down service with chocolates was appreciated as was the bottled water and lovely amenities. This place has it all which enhanced our stay in Prague.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your kind words following your recent stay at the ARIA Hotel. I am really glad that you enjoyed your suite and the service you received, especially from the front desk and concierge. I have passed on your feedback to them and the rest of the team. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your anniversary together with the romantic dinner on our roof terrace and with the massage you were provided.

We found the hotel staff to be very informative, helpful, and friendly. The room was very nice and the hotel location is very convienent. We were able to walk to nearly all of the attractions we wanted to visit. The restaurant in the hotel was of the highest quality, and the garden available to hotel guests was beatutiful. There is a terrace on the hotel roof with amazing views of Prague. I was very pleased with this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days and had a brilliant time. Fate seemed to be saying go with the Aria as it was the only hotel I could book in the top 10 on trip advisor for the dates we wanted, our room was named the Salsa room which is my wife's favourite dance and everything from start to finish made our experience in Prague a great one.

The concierge (Ivana), Katerina and Fireworks guy (he will know who he is) on the roof top terrace restaurant were the standouts, but all the staff from reception to cleaning staff were friendly, attentive, and created, as a team, a really relaxed ambiance for us. The food in Coda (on the roof) was excellent and I had one of the best steaks I have ever had (plus we got free fireworks). Breakfast was probably the only 'average' area, there was no shortage in the variety of offerings, but it was always the same.

The art and music displays, lounges, bar, bedrooms and bathrooms were all done/delivered with style and class. We organised, via the hotel, a pick up and drop off at/to airport which made life easier and Adam our driver to the airport was hysterical. If we ever go back to Prague we will stay here again.

My wife and I stayed in Prague three nights and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. It is convenient to the main bridge across the river and easy walk to Prague's old town square. The rooftop restaurant had excellent food and service. The room was spacious and the staff was very helpful. The hotel is charming.

There is not enough space in this site to say enough about the Aria Hotel. From the moment we checked in to the second we checked out everything was perfect. The staff knew our names and were always pleasant and cheerful. There was nothing that we asked of them that was not done immediately and with a smile. The room was very nice and the location was excellent. Should I ever return to Prague I would not stay at any other hotel. I just wish I could find hotels like this in other cities that I visit.
