Second time there and I was disappointed
Posted Sep 30, 2016
My first stay at the Aria was a great one and I couldn't wait to go back with one special person. So I went back after having built up the hotel immeasurably and making it into the best place in the entire city of Prague! The door staff were absolutely amazing and the city is brilliant. However, we ended up, two Canadians, having the time of our lives in an Italian pizza place across the street, singing Czech bar songs to a live band and having the BEST time!!!!! And the pizza was amazing. When we wandered into our OWN hotel, being drawn in by beautiful piano music (which incidentally was WHY we were at the Aria) we basically got turned away by a staff member because she had no idea that we stayed there and didn't even bother to ask if we were guests. There was a "discussion" afterwards with the waitress and it was uncomfortable. Needless to say, the hotel is AMAZING and Prague is incredible. If you play piano and you want to stay at the Aria for Mozart, Beethoven, etc, DON'T. The lounge piano player plays exactly that - lounge music. I have heard Barry Manilow a thousand times. I don't want to go hear it in Prague. I wanted Mozart. If you're called the Aria hotel, PLAY AN ARIA. That's all. Thanks for listening.
