Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The Aria Hotel Budapest sits in an unrivalled spot in the historic city centre, on the Pest side of the Danube River, flanked by the impressive domes of St Stephen’s Basilica, and is just a ten-minute walk from the iconic Chain Bridge. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep.

Rooms at Aria Hotel Budapest

The hotel has four wings, each honouring distinct music genres: opera, classical, contemporary and jazz, with special touches in each one, from Venetian Murano glass chandeliers in the opera wing to custom-made carpets featuring saxophones in the jazz wing. The spacious rooms are styled with plush fabrics and bright pops of colour, and pay tribute to iconic musicians including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Maria Callas, Bob Dylan, Hungary's own Franz Liszt, and more, with caricatures of the artists framed above the beds, and additional touches such as iPad loaded with music.

They feature plush beds which can be customised for your comfort, marble and polished chrome tables and chairs, interactive multimedia entertainment systems and Nespresso machines, alongside deluxe bathrooms with Italian onyx showers and Molton Brown amenities. They are soundproofed to ensure a peaceful night's sleep. Most rooms have private balconies with views over the Music Garden or the city.

The one to three-bedroom Opera Suites offer additional space and luxury, with lavish interiors inspired by classic operas such as Madame Butterfly and Carmen, and they come with French lacquered tables and chaise longues.

Food & Drink

The trendy High Note SkyBar overlooks St Stephen’s Basilica from its luxuriously-appointed rooftop, and is the perfect spot for cocktails, while the Liszt restaurant serves up delicious contemporary Hungarian cuisine. Enjoy a tasty buffet breakfast in the Music Garden, including croissants, local meats and cheeses, eggs, smoked salmon, fresh juices and more. Guests can also enjoy complimentary Hungarian wines and cheeses here in the afternoons, accompanied by live music from signature musicians.


The hotel's music theme continues with its exquisite glass-enclosed Music Garden, a courtyard at the heart of the hotel, offering sky views while being comfortably climate-controlled, and the screening room plays recordings of musical performances.

Budapest is known for its bath spas, and the hotel has added another to the collection, with its subterranean Harmony Spa, complete with a heated pool, a Jacuzzi, an aromatic steam room, a Finnish sauna, and a fitness studio with aquatic bikes.
