We just love coming back to this hotel. I will admit, that I am partial to this part of Prague, because I was born and raised there, went to school there and know practically every cobblestone in this part of town. My husband and I left for the US many years ago and started to travel back to Prague in the early nineties. In those years we stayed in the big hotels (Hilton, Marriott), because we knew pretty much what to expect. And so, in the last 20 years traveling to Prague, we spent time in many different hotels, sampling the large and later the boutique hotels. My husband likes change and therefore there are very few places that we revisit on our travels.
In June 2013 we celebrated my husband's birthday with our grown children and small grandchildren and we all had an amazing 10 days stay in Aria.The celebratory dinner was held in the Golden Well (the sister hotel of Aria). In December 2012 my husband and I stayed in the Golden Well for 10 days, celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary. Since then, we have got to know well the people who run the two hotels so successfully. It feels really great to return and see them again.This time we also loved seeing the people that served us breakfast, recognizing us on the first morning -genuinely surprised, that we were back so soon. This time, we had only 4nights in Aria, since it was a last minute decision to go to Prague again, when planning our European trip. We stayed in some great hotels on this trip, that included Italy, Germany and Austria, but we enjoyed our stay in ARIA the most. We love the easy access to the beautiful Vrtbovska Garden, that looked spectacular from the Beethoven suite windows.
To all the people that helped our stay to be so special, many thanks. Zoran, for having the plum cake (czech specialty) ready for us, just because my husband mentioned it. We always feel welcome at breakfast and enjoy chatting with everybody in czech, even though everybody speaks english too.
Thank you Karolina, Julie, Andrea, Alexandra and the people in the Golden Well restaurant, where we had our " saying Good Bye to Prague " dinner on our last night in Prague. The view from the restaurant is truly one of the best in Prague!
We left our rented car in the hotel's garage and enjoyed a trip in the hotel car to Vysehrad- a great value- if your time is limited and you can't climb the hills anymore.The famous Charles bridge and the centuries old buildings with great restaurants(UMecenase and U Maliru) are only minutes away! The parks -Kampa, Petrin, Kinska and Waldstejnska garden are in a walking distance. Great if you travel with kids or like to jog in the morning.
In summary, this is an elegant boutique hotel where an attention to every detail, however small, is paid. And they just simply make you feel special.
The house I grew up in Prague was taken over by a movie studio long ago. I wish I could "go home" just one more time. Since that is not possible, we will soon visit again with our" Aria family". My husband agrees...
