Opening March 15th, the Aria Hotel Budapest (part of the Library Hotel Collection) is located in a 7-story 1870’s building. The Neoclassical facade has been painstakingly rebuilt in limestone to replicate the beauty of the original architecture and has been designed to look exactly as the original architect intended.

In a blend of classical and contemporary styles, each of the 49 guestrooms and four parlors will feature a jazz, contemporary, opera or classical music theme through décor and sound. Guests will access the music library via iPads and flat screen televisions elegantly presented within a marble fireplace-style mantelpiece. Many rooms will offer a private terrace with a view overlooking the streets leading to the pedestrian plaza. Most accommodations will offer an open-air balcony overlooking the stunning glass-enclosed Music Garden courtyard. Options for one or two bedroom suites are available, but the favorite choice is the extraordinary studio suite dedicated to Hungarian composer and virtuoso Franz Liszt. The hotel will consist of four wings, each with its own elevator bank, which will allow for the ultimate in privacy with only two to four guestrooms per landing.

The High Note Skybar – the only year-round rooftop garden terrace in Budapest – will offer unparalleled views of the city.  The two love nests, which are upper level perches offering 360-degree views, are perfect for couples or small groups of up to 20 people.  Other dining options for guests and locals will include the street-level Stradivari, a bistro style restaurant, and Satchmo’s Bar and Lounge.

The onsite Harmony Spa will offer three treatment rooms, one specifically for couples, along with an indoor pool, private pool cabanas, an advanced fitness center, a Swedish sauna, a Turkish steam room, and a Jacuzzi. Signature treatments will be set to music playlists customized to each guest’s preferences.

Located in the historic city center on the Pest side of the Danube River, Aria is situated beside famous St. Stephen’s Basilica. The hotel is steps from a charming pedestrian plaza featuring shops, restaurants, cafes and musical entertainment, and within a five minutes’ walk to the renowned Chain Bridge, the elegant tree-lined Andrássy Avenue and Budapest’s Opera House. The city’s fairytale-like Parliament and endless palaces surrounding Szabadság tér (or “Freedom Square”) are also a short walk from the hotel.
