Luxury Boutique Hotel in Budapest @ The Aria

AdventureFaktory in Budapest

The Aria Hotel Budapest by Library Hotel Collection is among the top 10 Luxury Hotels In Europe, voted as the #1 actually, by TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice 2017. Our choice for this property was for its theme, expected colourful furniture and art all around the place!

When choosing our hotels, we have a few characteristics that needs to be met. Although, we are not difficult and do not expect all of them to be ticked off the box, will share with you this list one day!

Location was the second reason why we chose The Aria, as it is close to our favorite place in Budapest, the Jewish Quarter, where all hip coffee shops and bars are situated.

OMG look at these stairs! For those asking, my beautiful wireless headphones are from Sudio Sweden, you can get 15% off discount code: adventurefaktory

Where is The Aria Hotel Budapest Located?

It is located at a premium spot right beside the St. Stephen’s Basilica, right in the city centre of Budapest. Less than 50 meters away is also the famous Akvárium Klub, a popular meeting point for many tours and flea markets! It is also conveniently situated not too far from the very important metro station Deák Ferenc tér (It’s the only transfer station for the M1, M2, and M3 lines)

Things around The Aria Hotel Budapest

As mentioned before, it is 30 seconds walk to the St. Stephen’s Basilica, 3 minutes walk from the Akvárium Klub, 4 minutes from the Deák Ferenc tér metro station, but most importantly, 0 seconds away to its beautiful sky bar, the High Note SkyBar, that probably appeared in your Google search of “Best Rooftop Bars in Budapest”!

How to get around The Aria Hotel Budapest

As simple as BMW! Bus-Metro-Walking! Everything is so relaxed to get around, don’t even think of taxis and Ubers are not available in Budapest unfortunately! Have to say that public transport was our main way of transportation. Perks of course with the Budapest Card, it cover all types of public transport and some more free access. Make sure to learn more about it here.

Eat and Drink at The Aria Hotel Budapest

Breakfast is always complimentary for all guests of the hotel. The best part is actually the free Wine & Cheese daily from 4pm to 6pm for all the hotel guests, no exception. This is an amazing extra offering that we have seen no where else unless you are a Club Member or such category. The hotel is quite exclusive on its own with only 49 rooms, so all guests are exclusive!

There are 4 F&B venues, the High Note SkyBar, The Music Garden (it is the lobby area, where you have breakfast and wine & cheese), Stradivari Welcomes ONYX and Gerbeaud right beside the lobby area and the Satchmo’s Bar & Library at your right when you enter the hotel!

There is a tiny Fitness Room available with treadmills and free weights if you need to be a little active! The Space looks AMAZING with its pink colour. It has a heated mini pool with a jacuzzi, steam & sauna. Sure did used it to the max before checking out of this beautiful place!

All the pink!
Beautiful!
Mani Pedi?

Rooms at the Aria are different from each corner of the hotel. We were in the Jazz corner with green as a themed colour! These are many other colours such as pink, purple, blue, etc!
Everything you need in a corner!
For breakfast – there is also an à la carte menu on top of the buffet set up!

Aria Hotel Budapest Rates

Weekends are always more expensive and mostly during high season of April to July. So on weekends, price for a night can range from €350 to€580 (390-650$US or 1500-2400AED) … don’t book last minute we will tell you that! Weekdays are better for the wallet at €250 a night (280$US or 1025AED).

How was the stay?

It was a great feeling to wake up and walk out the balcony. It probably wasn’t a city view, but looking in the middle architecture of the hotel, typical of Budapest, is so charming and wonderful! The sunlight is still there and powerful, you wish you could walk out with nothing but then you would scare your room neighbours haha! Must say we absolutely adored the wine and cheese. Usually this type of treatment is for club members only and this was exclusive to all the guests of the hotel, which made everyone quite exclusive. If you plan a few nights in Budapest, make sure the Aria Hotel Budapest takes at least one of your nights!

During the busy season, if you are not staying there, make sure to reserve in advance at the High Note SkyBar
Beautiful view down the lobby from the room balcony at night time

The charming musical lobby area!
Enjoy live music during the wine & cheese from 4 to 6pm daily.

    The best part is the interior design. I can’t stop looking at your photos and admire the details of every design. The pieces of furniture are amazing especially the green chairs. The food choices look appetizing and appealing too. Btw, you look so fancy.

  • Jeanette Cheney

    Oh wow I can see why this is in the top 10! I was wow’s by the staircase and then it just got better. This looks like an amazing place to hide from the world!

  • Aria Hotel looks amazing! I actually booked a room here in January for a trip I didn’t end up taking. Now I’m kicking myself that I didn’t go! Absolutely everything about it is so gorgeous.

    Beautiful hotel and pictures. I am in Budapest next week, your recommendations are worth a note and I am surly having a meal in this hotel and take a picture on the swirling stairs 😊 Thanks for sharing.

    What a royal hotel and it look like super luxurious. I love those swirling staircase. Pink colored Mani-Pedi looks like a princess room.

  • The Van Cave Project

    What a stunning hotel. I love the quirky themed lobby area. Looks like it would make a great romantic weekend away – plus the free wine and cheese sounds perfect!

  • Its such a beautiful hotel – and easy to see why Trip Advisor voted it #1 in the Travelers Choice awards! Love the location too, so close to the main sights and with incredible views from the roof!

  • Zoya Van Wyk

    I have yet to visit Budapest, but would totally consider staying at the Aria when I visit. Everything about the hotel sounds absolutely amazing; from the unique decor, to the service and it’s superb location. Not to mention the fact that it has a Sky Bar and free wine & cheese! Dream hotel, I say!
