An Italian mosaic representing an ancient Gregorian chant bridges the distance from the front gates to the main entrance of the Aria Hotel, a music-themed luxury property in Malá Strana. Just a four-minute walk from the Charles Bridge, the hotel is adjacent to the Vrtbovská Garden, the oldest Baroque garden in Prague. Each of the 52 guestrooms is dedicated to a musical style or artist—such as Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, or Mozart—with corresponding artwork, books, and preloaded iPods. The Aria also contains a music library of more than 1,000 CDs, a private screening room, and the French-influenced, fine-dining Coda restaurant.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
