Don't get me wrong. Prague is a wondeful place to visit - so much history, culture and grand architecture at every turn. But what stands out for me after my stay in Prague was the truly outstanding venue and service at the Aria. There are so many superlatives ..where to start? Well, the location is outstanding. Just a short walk to the Charles Bridge, Old Town and the Main Castle - well, short but steep - close to a tram line and a little walk to their underground. So convenient to almost everything. The entire place is beautiful - exquisite lobby, common areas and well appointed rooms with a computer, nice TV, DVD player and a small sitting area. There is a very nice library that is perfect for a nice reading session or a quiet, intimate conversion. There are rooms for viewing DVD's with a small group. We had a perfect evening for two with a movie and wonderful food from the restaruant in the small private viewing room. Our own room's decor/theme was Louis Armstrong ..each room is decorated with a star of the music world in mind. It wasn't a huge room but was perfectly fine for two. The bed was very comfortable and the room was vey quiet.
The staff is exceptional in every way. From the moment we walked into the hotel, we were treated in a most friendly and cordial manner by everyone. The concierge gave us a personal tour of the facilities upon check-in and chatted with us about touring options over a a glass of champagne. Front desk, room service and clean up services were fine, breakfast was beautifully presented, and the delicious coffees and cappucinnos kept on coming. Excellent concierge services from Blanka, Diana and Henry helped me chart out an amazing set of Praha adventures and fine dining experiences. I suggest everyone try and get to the Lobkowitz Palace for some chamber music sometime during their stay and take in an opera at one the venues too. The State Opera House was so beautiful!.
The fitness area was limited to a few machines, and the spa services did not seem extensive to me. As an early bird, I would have liked a coffee maker in the room.
But, over all, Hotel Aria is a fantastic place with very fine people. I will defintely stay there the next time I return to beautiful Praha.
