In Little Quarter
Situated in Prague's historical Little Quarter (Malá Strana) below Prague Castle, this music-themed hotel lies one block from Church of St Nicholas and 300 meters from Charles Bridge.
A library supplies music, music videos, movies, and music-themed books for use in guestrooms; a 30-seat room with a rear-projection screen; and a soundproof "music box" room with a plasma-screen TV.
Aria Hotel's air-conditioned rooms honor composers from various musical genres; they feature heated-floor bathrooms and computers containing the honored figures' biography and music.
The Aria Hotel lobby contains a long, curved, red-leather bench in the reception area and a 4.5-meter (15-foot) silk-brocade couch and red-draped wall in an adjacent salon. Live orchids and potted plants grace public areas. Mosaic tiles depicting a Gregorian-chant music-note pattern curve sinuously through public areas. During conversion of the three 1910 buildings comprising the hotel, façades were restored, murals were painted on exteriors, and peaked glass roofs over courtyards were constructed to create three atriums.
