We stayed here for 3 days and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Pleasant rooms, very comfortable beds and just a general feel of being taken care of by the pleasant and attentive staff. Especially thankfull to all the front desk staff and concierge for their helpfulness! The location is great and you can walk everywhere in the city centre with total ease. Parking garage in this part of Prague is a huge plus. Overall I would very much recommend Aria if you are going to visit Prague!
"Very pleasant "
Went to the Aria with Avios. Chosen on the basis of previous reviews It was very good, generally, but we stayed here on the basis it was a class hotel based on a musical theme. Some nice Mozart perhaps thru The speakers..... possibly Beethoven. But like all "music", its chosen by the staff, for the staff. That's why we got "you can't touch this" by MC Hammer at breakfast. Seriously!!! Staff were very helpful and polite. The breakfasts were "ok" but there is little cutlery. Let me explain... I had cutlery for my eggs and bacon but then I needed more for my croissant etc. So had to ask for this every morning. The room was great and the HUGE bed very comfortable We enjoyed it muchly, but when you are going for what is perceived as the very best, one expects the very best. It's just fell down in minor, annoying, stuff really Give it a go. You might get Linkin Park at breakfast though. Ask for Mozart......see what happens Enjoy!!
"That was a perfect stay!"
We spent a weekend at the Aria hotel. We just can recommend this place. It's located in the middle of the city center, just within walking distance to the main sights. The staff was extremely friendly. Our room which was perfectly clean offered a nice view to the garden in the backyard of the hotel. If you plan a relaxed stay in Prague, this hotel must be your choice.
My wife and I had a brief two-day stay in Prague and wanted a good central location within walking distance of main attractions. Aria was the perfect location. It's also a lovely hotel, well appointed, and cleverly designed around a music theme. Each of the rooms represents an artist or style and there is funky artwork to accompany the story. As mentioned in other reviews, the staff is excellent. We'd booked a car service from the airport but had a long flight delay. The staff, namely Fillip and Katarina, assured me that the car would be there, and it was. Our driver Michael or Mikal, was great. At the hotel the check-in, check-out, bell service were outstanding. When we got to our fifth floor room--Salsa--salsa (my wife's favorite) was playing on the excellent in-room sound system. The room itself was quite comfortable, although watch your head; there are some intrusive structural issues. The bath was clean, upscale, and well lit. We also had a nice partial view from an opening window. Although it was closed for winter, the roof top terrace is a nice feature. The staff was good enough to let us up there. Nice views. We had an easy walk to the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. Lots of shops and restaurants are near Aria as well. I have nothing to compare it too, but it seems to me that for a visit to Prague, it would be hard to improve upon Aria.
"WAAAAAAAAAAAY over rated and over priced 3.5 star hotel at best"
Just got back from a four day/three night stay at the Aria Hotel in Prague. We booked this hotel solely based on its rank as the #8 hotel out of thousands in Prague and it being a 5-star hotel. This is one of the few times Trip Advisor has truly let me down. Folks, from someone who has traveled for a long time and stayed at many 4 and 5 star hotels, this hotel in not even close to a 5 star hotel, especially in a city like Prague that boasts some of the best hotels and service in Europe. We paid close to $400 per night for a superior suite in this hotel during low season. This is one of the worst hotel stay investments I've ever made. The hotel is poorly decorated, very plain (a total crime in a city like Prague with so much beautiful architecture), rooms are devoid of any touches of luxury, views are poor/non-existent, the hotel is thrown together so you have to walk down weird hallways and steps to get to most rooms. Services is stiff, robotic, and not very thoughtful. The 'SPA' facility is an absolute joke - more like a small school locker room. When we arrived, there was no one at the door to greet us and help with the luggage. We brought our luggage in and were greeted by a very stiff and nervous front desk receptionist who was apparently very new as he was sweating profusely and went on and on about something that we could not understand as his English language skills were very poor. We were taken to our room by another person who informed us he also just started with the hotel as an apprentice. We were very disappointed with the room since we had paid for a 'superior suite.' The room was located on the 5th floor and only had two clerestory windows (windows that are fairly high in the wall) so there was no view and the room was dark. Additionally, the room has several VERY LARGE slanted beams that started at the floor level and went to the ceiling, effectively making the room twice as small. The beams were very difficult to negotiate and one had to use extreme caution not to hit one head on their sharp edge. Furniture was arranged topsy-turvy with bar snacks and chocolate bars (that have to be purchased) thrown around the bed, around a desk, and on top of a fridge - very tacky. The bathroom was very plain with a standard tub and sink - Clean, but nothing that you can't find in even a two star hotel. We asked for a different room and were shown three other rooms in the hotel all of which were considerably worse than the one we were had (they even showed us a room that was down several long corridors and steps and was the only room next to an in-keeper's room (the inside looked like an in-keepers room). We arrived at 7 pm - so, I went outside in the surrounding area to look for another hotel. I found several very very nice hotels that usually go for between $100 - $120 per night, however, none had any availability. My wife and I finally decided to make the best of it and we ended staying at the Aria (begrudgingly). Also, there was a large party at the hotel restaurant adjacent to the very small lobby and they were playing very very loud music until about 11 pm. The next day, my wife booked a massage at the hotel's spa. We were led to believe that the masseuse would be female (my wife understandably does not feel comfortable with a male masseuse.) Shortly before her appointment time, we stopped by to check out the 'spa' and were very surprised to find out the space was not fit at all - it was limited to two very small bathrooms one for men with a sauna, the other for women with a steam room. Both rooms had extra equipment that was just leaning against the walls. Since my wife likes to use the sauna, we asked the front desk person who indicated she can go ahead and use the sauna even though it was in the men's room We thought maybe they lock the facility since she has a massage scheduled. While my wife had a massage, I took the time to walk around and explore the area around the hotel. When I got back, my wife informed me that the massage room was extremely small, hot, with an uncomfortable massage table. Additionally, the massage therapist turned out to be a middle age male who was dressed in a white boxer short and short sleeved white cotton shirt that resembled men's underwear. This made her feel extremely uncomfortable. He indicated he was the only therapist available. She agreed to have the massage and though the therapist was professional, he made he made her uncomfortable several times as he asked her to sit on the edge of the massage table so he can work on her back and shoulders (''') She reported he did not try anything funny, but she could not relax during the massage. Afterwards, she was looking forward to using the sauna. Unfortunately, she could not because another male guest was using the facility. Breakfast was included with our deal and we had two excellent breakfasts there. The restaurant was very nice and the food very fresh and well prepared. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant since it was highly rated and after a long day of walking Prague, we did not want to go out to find a restaurant. About 3 pm, we asked if the restaurant requires a reservation. We were informed by the front desk manager that no reservation should be necessary since the hotel is not fully booked and there should be plenty of room. Low and behold, when we went to the restaurant around 7:30 pm, we were informed that the restaurant was fully booked for the night and they would not be able to accommodate us. The dining room staff informed us that a large party had reserved the restaurant in the very last minute. So, we ended up going out for dinner at a nearby restaurant and we had a delicious meal for about 1/5 of the price we would have paid at the Aria restaurant. Folks, before you trust the other reviews on this site, you owe it to yourself to check out many of the other wonderful hotels at Prague that offer much better accommodations, service, and facilities for about 1/3 for what you would pay at Arial. What a joke.
