The Aria Hotel Prague is one of the best and most romantic hotels in Prague. It's also very different.
The Aria offers rooms based on different musical themes.
Now, at first thought a music theme-based hotel might seem a bit kitschy. But don't worry, the Aria is a tasteful blend of luxury and musical references.
The Aria Hotel Prague was rated as a Top 10 Luxury Hotel in the World for 2011 by TripAdvisor.
And, it has garnered more buzz and accolades from other publications like Telegraph.co.uk and Conde Nast.
If that's not enough, consider the Aria's backdrop. The beautiful Vrtbovska Gardens which guests have direct access to.
The Aria is in the lovely area of Prague called Malá Strana (Lesser Town). Aside from the beauty of the Aria, it's the hotel's location that may win your heart.
Unlike Old Town, this area isn't the center of Tourist-ville. So you won't have to compete for sidewalk space or be confronted by the occasional drunk stag party.
For example, within a few steps of the hotel you can gaze up at a variety of beautiful embassies, stroll Vrtbovska Gardens or find yourself wandering under Charles Bridge onto the flowing greenery of Kampa Island.
Malá Strana offers days of exploration on its own. And evening walks are save and highly recommended.
Okay, we're getting carried away. We're a bit biased toward Malá Strana. When we are looking to get away for a coffee or Sunday afternoon walk, we often find ourselves meandering this area. It just happens.
Of course, there are great connections to the rest of the city from here as well including a tram stop for the ever useful #22 that takes you up the hill to the castle and across the city to the National Theatre and other important destinations.
