Just a short stroll from the Danube on the Pest side, the Aria Hotel occupies an enviable position opposite St. Stephen's Basilica – one of the most emblematic churches in the entire city. The hotel lies on a delightful pedestrian thoroughfare, which is characterized by imposing old-world facades and a vibrant array of happening restaurants and bars.
You can reach many of Budapest’s most enchanting sites on foot, including the Hungarian Parliament and the Chain Bridge.
Guests can transfer to and from the Budapest Airport in about 25 minutes.
Rooms & Suites
Despite the faithful recreation of an elegant 1800s façade on its exterior, the Aria Hotel boasts the latest in chic interior design. The layout dedicates each of its four distinct wings to a musical genre – opera, classical, jazz, and contemporary – and boast colourful furnishings and contemporary décor throughout. Within each arm, the tastefully decorated guestrooms pay homage to musical greats through hand-drawn caricatures by the talented Josef Blecha.
Most of the 49 rooms and suites include a private furnished balcony that overlooks either the elegant Music Garden below or faces the street. Expect luxury furnishings such as marble bistro tables and plush suede bed heads, while the Italian en-suite bathrooms with Onyx marble and Molton Brown amenities add to the appeal.
Pool & Facilities
The 35-foot indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi are a hit with guests, especially during the winter months when their warm waters provide a welcome respite from the bitter cold.
Budapest is a city famous for its spas, and the Aria offers ample opportunity to enhance the experience through its health and wellness centre Harmony Spa. Numerous treatments are available to revitalize and rejuvenate the skin using only 100% natural skin care brands, while the steam room and sauna are the perfect places to unwind. Fitness fanatics might prefer to burn off a few calories at the in-house gym instead.
Naturally, all this comes accompanied by the soothing sounds of a musical score that’s been handpicked by a specialist director.
Food & Drink
The first thing you’ll notice about the food at the Aria is its fantastic breakfast. Served each morning in the delightful Music Garden, the complimentary buffet features an array of both healthy and decadent offerings.
Come afternoon; you’ll be treated to another special surprise when the Music Garden puts on the complimentary wine & cheese reception with live music, plus a selection of exquisite Hungarian wines, international cheeses, dried and fresh fruits.
If you’re feeling peckish in between all that delicious free food, the hotel has several other superb dining spots to enjoy. The High Note SkyBar offers creative cocktails and tasty bar snacks to accompany one of Budapest’s best rooftop views.
Last but not least, guests have the opportunity to sample the delectable contemporary cuisine of newly launched Liszt Restaurant. Despite using modern cooking techniques, this tasty music themed restaurant sources ancient ingredients from the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for its unique culinary creations. Appetizers listed as ‘Prelude’, soups as the ‘Symphony’, and main courses, known as ‘Concerto’ were created to provide an unique gourmet experience.
The hotel has received numerous prestigious accolades over the years including the #1 Hotel in the World from TripAdvisor, or #1 Hotel in Central Europe from Conde Nast.
