The Aria has been our 'happy place' since opening in 2015. So pleased to see the hotel has survived COVID is back up and as welcoming as ever. Special thanks to the front desk team of Kornel, Barbara and Vivien for looking after us so well - nothing too much trouble and anticipating every need - especially as the owner just happened to be visiting at the same time! Lovely relaxing departure morning in the spa - thanks Olga and team.

Dear Antiblackberry, We are truly amazed when again and again we realize how inspiring it possibly can be to stay in the Aria Hotel Budapest for a couple of days. Your subtly composed review of your return visit is indeed music to our entire staff. Thank you for sharing your experience, seasoned with your comments of the most sophisticated taste.

Hotel's Favorite
This place is just amazing. The room was stunning with an internal balcony that looks down over the ground floor of the hotel. The hotel lounge / reception where afternoon tea is served every day with live music is designed and furnished beautifully and is just so grand. The rooftop bar has an indoor and outdoor area and was just perfect, a great place to come back to for cocktails after being out and about in the city. Location could not be better, everything was so easy to get to we didn't have to get cabs or use public transport once. The hotel staff couldn't do enough for us and they booked a night time river cruise trip for us. We were so happy that we stayed here it really made our trip be the best.

This place is a true Love Letter to what hotels aspire to be. It starts with the staff as soon as you walk through the doors for the first time. They embrace you like family and nurture you like good parents do for their children. The place itself is gorgeous and spares no expense for it’s uniqueness of the music theme. The rooftop lounge, the spa, the garden breakfast - all are amazing! This place is a true gem, centrally located in the heart of exactly where you would want to start sightseeing in Budapest.. While traveling all throughout the world, I’ve been very privileged to stay in fine places, but this place and its people who work here set the bar at a new level that is not invasive or overly fancy, but so friendly that I want to give every one of them a big hug and take them home with us - but maybe its because I’m American. I think it’s because this whole place and the people working here are that lovable! And those who work here, whether at check-in or a bit behind the scenes, are all that dang great at making you feel special. The place is a red herring. It seems too good to be true, yet here it is. If you are spending your hard earned money to come to Budapest and can afford this jewel, you’d be silly not to stay here.

Dear DDDTT, Let me start by announcing our heartfelt gratitude for taking the time and sharing your guest experience of staying at the Aria Hotel. It was our utmost pleasure having you with us and it is heartwarming to read your compliments on TripAdvisor. We are lucky to have such special design all over the hotel thanks to an award-winning Hungarian interior designer Zoltán Varró, who managed to turn an old traditional Pest-side apartment building into one of the finest luxury boutique hotels in the city. We are also fortunate with our location, enabling our guests to enjoy such magnificent views of Budapest from our rooftop bar, the High Note Skybar. It makes us all very happy that you enjoyed the warm and friendly hospitality of our service staff. We are always beyond thrilled to see wonderful people like you enjoying the music garden and with other travelers over breakfast and our wine and cheese reception. We truly hope we will have the chance to welcome you back in the near future to Aria or any other sister properties in New York or the latest addition to the family, Hotel X Toronto, Canada. Warm regards, Kornél @ AriaHotelBudapest . com

Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. Location is fantastic, right beside the basilica. The hotel also feels brand new, very lux and with high ceilings everywhere. Spa area also really nice. We didn’t get to use the roof top bar, but the view was excellent so I’d recommend you walk up to see it

Dear dmi90 , Many thanks for your nice review. You have just set the perfect time for your visit to Budapest: the weather is perfect with sunshine and mediocre warm and dry climate in September. Our city has changed a lot during the last couple of years, and it has gained back its old glamour which made it a paradise for artists, musicians or poets back in the golden first decades of the 20th century. I will forward the nice words to my colleagues, who are eager to make your stay a memorably special one. Please do email me once you plan to come back to us. With all my warm regards: Kornél @ AriaHotelBudapest.com
