Located in Hungary’s capital on the “Pest” side of the Danube River and just steps from St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Aria Hotel in Budapest represents a love for all things musical. The word “aria” actually means “a long, accompanied song for a solo voice, typically one in an opera or oratorio.”
Each of the 49 guestrooms and suites in this seven-story hotel features a musical theme in both décor and sound with bright caricatures of entertainers hanging over each bed. Guests also have access to the hotel’s music library via in-room iPads and flat screen televisions. Many rooms offer a private terrace with a view overlooking the streets. The Aria’s Music Garden courtyard offers a fun place to relax and people watch with its tiled piano path.
The High Note Skybar – the only year-round rooftop garden terrace in Budapest – offers stunning views of this city. Other dining options for guests include the street-level Stradivari, a bistro style restaurant, and Satchmo’s Bar and Lounge.
The Aria Hotel is situated nearby a pedestrian plaza featuring shops, restaurants, and musical entertainment. The city’s endless historical palaces are also a short walk from the hotel.
