Library Hotel Collection’s newest member, the Aria Hotel Budapest, opened its doors on March 15th, 2015.
Located in the historic city centre on the Pest side of the Danube River, Aria Hotel is situated beside the famous St. Stephen’s Basilica. It is only a few steps away from a charming pedestrian plaza featuring high-end shops, restaurants, cafés and musical entertainment, and within a five-minute walk of the renowned Chain Bridge, the elegant tree-lined Andrássy Avenue and the Budapest State Opera House.
The city’s fairytale-like Parliament and endless palaces surrounding Szabadság tér (or “Freedom Square”) are a short distance away.
The Aria Hotel Budapest is a luxury boutique hotel inspired by music. Each of the four wings is dedicated to one of four major genres: Classical, Opera, Contemporary, and Jazz. Each room and suite features caricatures by internationally acclaimed artist Joseph Blecha to celebrate the world's greatest musical legends such as Maria Callas, Count Basie, Bob Dylan, James Brown and Hungary’s own Franz Liszt.
The glass enclosed Music Garden courtyard has a tiled piano path and cozy sitting areas perfect for socializing. Its unique transparent glass enclosure is a striking design feature without any steel support and a first and only one of its kind in Europe.
The Music Garden courtyard serves as a social lounge, where guests are surrounded by music, entertainment and dining options. Complimentary afternoon wine and cheese reception is available here every day.
The High Note SkyBar is a highlight. This is a lushly landscaped rooftop garden designed for your personal dining, cocktails, and sunbathing pleasure, all while reveling in the breathtaking views of Budapest and St. Stephen’s Basilica. It is the only year-round full service rooftop garden terrace in Budapest.
Satchmo's Bar is a glamorous and modern spot, the perfect place to unwind after work in a relaxing and stunning atmosphere. The blue velvet walls and crystals draped from the ceiling create the perfect combination of comfort and luxury. The design and visuals presented evoke the glamour of the Golden Era of Film and Musicals with musical icons such as Louis Armstrong, the Rat Pack and Marilyn Monroe.
Stradivari Restaurant offers complimentary luxurious breakfast to guests. In addition, you are also invited to experience privacy and elegance, whether it is a business lunch or a romantic dinner.
There are also 49 luxury rooms, including four suites. The majority of the guestrooms offer private open-air balconies overlooking the glass enclosed Music Garden courtyard or Hercegprímás Street.
