I selected the Aria Hotel in Prague after checking Trip Adviser's various top-10 selections and then worried that the 'music' theme, with iPods set up in every room, might mean not enough peace and quiet. I couldn't have been more wrong. This was the most peaceful hotel I've ever stayed in. But that was just the beginning.
Location: central but not on a through road, so trams, castle, Charles bridge all in easy walking distance.
Decor: modern, smart, classy: just lovely.
Room and facilities: we had a junior suite but it was still more spacious than expected. Lots of windows overlooking inner courtyard, perfect shower, bath, dressing room area, entrance hall, massive bed, sofa and chairs, mini bar, and yes, iPod, with extra huge music and DVD library downstairs, in-room PC, but wi-fi for your own laptop if you prefer.
Staff: friendly, helpful, able to supply almost every need, from tram tickets, to last two seats at the biggest classical music event of the week, to a razor for my husband.
Outside, a roof terrace with stunning views, a private garden at the back, parking should you need it (we didn't).
Top notch restaurant, free 'high tea' in the lounge every afternoon at 4pm...I could go on. But suffice to say, this is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. And BTW, Prague itself takes a lot of beating!More
