If you follow me on Instagram, you know I just got back from a 3-week Eurotrip. Me and Stefan hit Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Copenhagen and Malmö, and it was a dream. Prague was our second stop and we completely fell in love with the city. The streets are lined with some of the most colourful, intricate architecture I’ve ever seen, it’s truly like stepping into a fairytale.
Sitting among the cobblestone streets is Aria Hotel Prague, one of the most amazing boutique hotels we’ve ever been so lucky to stay at. The entire hotel is inspired by music, and you can feel it in every room you walk into from the lobby, to the winter garden, to the guest rooms. It’s also in an ideal location, about a 10 minute walk from both the Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle. Even though it’s situated so close to these attractions, it’s tucked away on a quiet street so you’re not disturbed at all! We spent our final night in Prague at the hotel, and it was the perfect way to end our stint in the beautiful city.
Our room was so luxurious, we absolutely loved it! Decorated with rich velvet blue accents and a carpet adorned with music notes, it’s one of the nicest hotel rooms I’ve ever walked into. The room also had a perfectly-sized desk that I was able to get some work done at and a gorgeous bathroom! We loved the art piece and chandelier that hung above the couch, and the bed was extremely comfy – we didn’t want to leave!
We were welcomed with a personalized letter from the hotel as well as a complimentary bottle of wine, which was such a special touch! Another amazing feature they offer is an in-room iPad you can take around the city. Oh, and the room had an Apple TV, so we were able to relax with some Netflix and wine after a long day of exploring!
The Vrtba Garden
The Vrtba Garden is the oldest baroque garden in Prague and it’s absolutely beautiful. The terraced garden offers magical views of the city, and we had the best time exploring it and looking out over Prague. It’s open to public during the day, but becomes a private garden for guests starting at 7:30 PM. We visited twice – once when it was open to public, and once when it was private to guests. When it was private we had it all to ourselves, and it was really magical. We were able to enjoy breathtaking views of the city and get beautiful, unobstructed photos to remember it forever.
The Winter Garden Atrium
Although we visited in summer, we took advantage of enjoying the winter garden atrium, a space with comfortable seating and tables, a bar, piano, and one of the most beautiful skylights I’ve ever seen. It’s really the heart of the hotel, filled with light and extremely inviting. They offer a complimentary daily Afternoon Tea, which we enjoyed with some scrumptious treats.
The Rooftop Terrace
The rooftop terrace is a beautiful spot to enjoy world-class cuisine as well as Prague’s magnificent skyline. When we were visiting, there were events going on, so we didn’t end up sitting on the terrace, but we were happy to enjoy a similar view from the Vrtba Garden! If you have a chance to visit Aria Hotel Prague and the terrace is open, it would be the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and delicious plates of food!
The first thing I noticed when we stepped into the hotel, aside from the beautiful decor was the amazing service. They treat you like gold from the second you check in, with kind smiles, someone to take your bags and a run down of all the hotel’s services and amenities. You also have someone to show you to your room and explain all the features you can enjoy during your stay. Everyone who worked at the hotel was extremely welcoming and pleasant, which is one of the aspects that definitely makes us want to return!
Our stay at Aria Hotel Prague was the ideal way to finish off our trip to Prague. We enjoyed every second of it and we can’t wait to visit again!
