This is a lovely hotel with beautiful spa area with sauna/whirlpool and pool. The rooms are large and bed is comfortable. Some staff members speaks English, Spanish and Hungarian. Daily music from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm. Breakfast is included in a lovely lobby area. I recommend it!

Hotel's Favorite
The aria hotel is perfect!!!! I love , love, love this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and the entire hotel has touches of music wherever you look. The lobby is beautiful and don’t miss the special staircase. !!!! The staff is extremely kind and helpful. Breakfast is delicious with something for everyone in the family to be satisfied. Please make sure to go sit and have drinks on the rooftop as the views are one in a million. The hotel is a 13 minute walk to the Kosinski synagogue. And the kosher restaurants ( Carmel, Hannah, and Tel Aviv). It’s located a short car ride from all the sights the city has to offer. Or you can walk everywhere from this hotel. The bathrooms are brand new and the rooms are large, luxurious and family friendly. I will definitely come again. This hotel is not to be missed. It’s a gem in the middle of budapest.

Our stay at the Aria Hotel Budapest was fabulous! From the moment we arrived, we experienced incredible hospitality, customer service, and warmth from the hotel staff--specifically Csaba, Vivian, Anna, Jason, and Paula. I have stayed in fine hotels all over the world, but none surpassed the welcome and dedication to us that we experienced at the Aria. I have grown accustomed to fabulous staff customer service in my many stays at the Elysee Hotel, New York City, another Library Hotel. However, all of the Aria staff all get a 10 out of 10 for excellence. The hotel has incredible accommodations and features in a terrific location. Jean and I would love to stay there again! Pictured in the included photo are my wife Jean and me with Aria staff members, Anna and Vivian. We consider these lovely ladies our friends now.

Aria is a fabulous boutique hotel very well located in Budapest. The decor and music theme with wings devoted to different types of music are a delight . Our room was spectacular--Frank Sinatra inspired--wonderful. But what makes it really special is the staff. All are great but most especially Barbara who made us feel so much at home. The Sky Bar is lovely with great views of the Basilica and beyond. We tried out the spa and both had lovely treatments in a very inviting atmosphere. Great indoor swimming pool. The breakfast each morning was tasty and got us on our way in a city we love. We were sorry to leave but the hotel provided transportation to the airport topped off a great experience. We would highly recommend the Aria as the hotel to stay in Budapest!

This is one amazing hotel. The ambiance, service and staff rate more than 5 stars. Our breakfast waiter/wine and cheese waiter, Jason, was so accommodating. The front desk arranged a dr appointment for me and a car. The Roof Top Bar is a must.

Amazing hotel in a great location. Rooms and breakfast all wonderful and the decor is very funky and different . Right next to the basilica and close to everything. Has a rooftop bar although we didn’t visit this as it was too hot and there is no shade and no umbrellas.

I booked this through BA holidays. It was at the top of the “recommended” list, so just went ahead with it without paying much attention. What a great find, it was much better than I had expected. Lovely smallish hotel right next to the Basillica. We had a large bedroom and bathroom, nicely furnished with a small balcony overlooking the atrium. I think this was the standard luxury room. However, what made this hotel great was the staff. It really felt like personal service and they were always willing to help. I didn’t know when I booked but this was where the McLaren drivers were staying during the F1. It absolutely made our trip. Highly recommended!

Dear CGriffin01, First of all thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Aria Hotel Budapest and thank you for such a splendid review. I am glad that you have liked the musically inspired design and our well-equipped rooms, at Aria Hotel Budapest, every aspect of the exquisite design and guest experience is enhanced by music. Each room and suite celebrates the work of an unforgettable music legend. Room designs come in four distinctive styles inspired by Jazz (Olive), Opera (Purple), Classical (Turquoise) or Contemporary (White with a pop of Orange) music. I am particularly glad to see what an extra touch of memory you could get by meeting the Mclaren F1 team also residing here in the Aria at the time of your stay. We are extremely lucky with our location as well, not just because of the most popular sightseeing places are with walking distance but also the spectacular view to the city and to the Saint Stephen’s Basilica right next to us. Last but not least let me thank you for your kind words about our staff. They work tirelessly to provide the highest level of hospitality to all of our valued guests. We would be thrilled to have the chance of welcoming you back to Aria in the near future or to any other sister properties of the Library Hotel Collection from Prague via New York to Toronto - be sure not to miss the newly opened Hotel X Toronto in case your travels would take you to Canada. Warm regards, Kornél @ AriaHotelBudapest . com

This hotel is elegant and picturesque with a calm and peaceful feel for being right in the center of the city. We would definitely recommend the Elvis room with balcony for nice evening views and atmosphere. Paula and Vivienne took great care of during our 4 day stay and we’re always responsive either in person or phone. The hotel breakfast was also worth it. Overall, this hotel definitely lived up to our expectations.

This was booked to celebrate our Daughters graduation in music performance and also a second diploma, so this hotel was right up her alley!!...She is a huge M.Jackson fan and that theme room wasn't big enough to sleep us three!..She said she would have slept in the bath!!!... Anyways we were in the Brahms room...It did not disappoint..From you enter the hotel until you leave, nothings a problem. The SPA facilities are luxury and I love nothing more than lobstering in a steam room. Decor down at SPA again is musically themed tiled walls of an orchestra. Floor 7 has the most sensational rooftop bar and dining facilities with views over the city. Anna couldn't do enough for us, she really is a Gem!!..Csabi was equally as helpful, and saw that I liked my English brekkie, and said there seems to be a sausage and beans missing from the plate!!..it really is seriously friendly staff who do all to please you. Jason was another who knew I liked my Fresh Coffee, he just topped it up!!..I know I'm all over the place with this review, but hey, two nights of sheer bliss...Bathroom had everything....anywhere that gives copious amounts of Molton Brown...I'm a fan!!....The highlight of the stay was our daughter getting to perform for the residents on the ultra rare Hungarian Borganyi Carbon fibre Grand Piano....The sound was off the scale, so to speak!!..Even the staff stopped to video especially when a wee rendition of Freddy Mercury "Don't Stop Me Now" broke through...All in all, as a Boutique size Hotel, there may be better in this world...but we've never seen them.!!!The cleansiness throughout the place is remarkable. Right, I'm done here....as you can tell, we would go back in a heartbeat.....it's just that I detest airports and all the hassle post COVID!

Dear Ourloney, Greetings from Budapest, and my personal kudos for your daughter's playing on our Bogányi piano! Thank you so much for choosing Aria for your Budapest visit, it was such a delight to read your detailed and musically inspired review which makes your presence very special for my at least as much as my colleagues surrounded and hosted you for your stay – I make sure to forward them your praising words. We agree, our musically inspired boutique hotel has a unique personality, that is easily distinguished from big chains but even among smaller hotels too – we are so glad for you highlighting this. We are very much looking forward to have the chance to welcome you back in the near future to Aria or to any other sister properties of the Library Hotel Collection from New York to Toronto.
