We had such a wonderful, unique, relaxing stay at the Aria hotel... what a treat really!! From being welcome in a very cordial and natural way, through a great introduction to the hotel by the Music Director himself, to a stunningly designed room, over to a nice treat during the wine-and-cheese-session, to some unique pampering massage provided by two lovely ladies, I could not have hoped for more. This was a surprise for my husband for Christmas, and it could not have turned out more perfect really. We loved every minute of our stay. Thanks for your generosity and kindness, and standing ovations to the entire team!!

Dear Zsuzsanna, We are obliged by your flattering praises, thank you so very much for posting your highly positive remarks on our property and hospitality services. Personally I felt very honored and delighted to welcome you upon arrival and host you during your entire stay. Music is the beginning and the end of our energy resources while working for the comfort of our guests here at the Aria. Seamless beauty, soulful simplicity are the keywords of a lasting work of art – and also our guidelines for service. We are happy when our striving is rewarded with a happy smile of our guests or any kind of spontaneous positive feedback. I will make sure to convey your feedback to our massage experts in the Harmony Spa. Please remember to visit us next time you plan to return to Budapest. Warm regards from Kornél @ AriaHotelBudapest.com

Hotel's Favourite
This place is just amazing. The room was stunning with an internal balcony that looks down over the ground floor of the hotel. The hotel lounge / reception where afternoon tea is served every day with live music is designed and furnished beautifully and is just so grand. The rooftop bar has an indoor and outdoor area and was just perfect, a great place to come back to for cocktails after being out and about in the city. Location could not be better, everything was so easy to get to we didn't have to get cabs or use public transport once. The hotel staff couldn't do enough for us and they booked a night time river cruise trip for us. We were so happy that we stayed here it really made our trip be the best.

We were traveling in Europe when the Omicron Covid variant hit. We had to adjust travel plans on the fly based on the change in travel restrictions. Aria Hotel were so helpful and accommodating. They extended our stay as requested and still honored the rate we had previously booked at. The hotel itself is located adjacent to the St. Stephen's Basilica. This is a great location with lots of great restaurants and bars. The moment you step out of the hotel you are in middle of it all. There was a Christmas Market right in front of the Basilica that we visited every night. Happy hour, with free wine and cheese, was offered every evening between 4 and 6pm. The Sky Bar was amazing with incredible views and drinks. Look for Richard - bar manager - he's a really cool guy! Finally, we were upgraded to a room that was so comfortable it actually felt like we were home. This hotel does not disappoint! The city itself has an incredible energy. The people are so happy and friendly - it's really quite refreshing. It was great to visit in winter and we will be back to experience it in the summer.

Dear Foumboum, You chose a lovely time of the year for your return visit, despite of the challenging period we all are facing due to the pandemic. After a tough last year, Budapest has a fabulous festive atmosphere again in the city with the award-winning Christmas market in front of the Basilica, right next to us. Thank you for highlighting the afternoon Wine & Cheese Reception, now accompanied by live music again during the weekends. It is worth checking out the services of our award-winning Harmony Spa as well. I was happy to see that the High Note SkyBar also met your expectations - I make sure to forward your nice remark of our bartender, Richard. We are fortunate to be located right in the center of the city just a few steps from the major sights – and of course from the Christmas Markets in the winter period. We cannot wait to welcome you back to our hotel or any other charming properties of the Library Hotel Collection, such as the latest addition to the family, Hotel X Toronto, Canada. Regardless of the season, our service is striving to do its best, achieving the expectations of our guests. It is worth coming back during the spring time in particular, when the new festival season is filling the streets with music. I wish you a lovely festive season and a prosperous New Year 2022.

I recently hosted Talent for the MTV Europe Music Awards in the hotel. Exceptional service, flawless responses to every request and I threw in a massive party that had to be turned around within 24 hours. The hotel transformed the High Note Sky Bar into an incredible DJ vibe and VIP area. The service is probably the best I have received in the world and I travel extensively. The rooms are bright and comfortable with a beautiful spa and excellent masseuse. If you want to be treated exceptionally well and made truly welcome, this is the place. It is in the heart of it all and I cannot wait to come back as a guest.

Hello Michelle, Well, it's been something! We had a very special weekend with you, as your company of talents and producers delivered the musical spirit into the Aria for which we are so passionate as well. We were thrilled to work together with you on such a prestigious event of the MTV European Music Awards. Likewise were we delighted to host such music icons as Rita Ora or some of the most popular members of the youngest music community, like Olly Alexander of Years & Years group from the UK. It was also a great experience to create such a vibrant party area in the High Note SkyBar for the after event. These are typically the challenges that turn our property into a real musically inspired hotel. Please let us know once you are planning to get back to Hungary either for corporate reasons, or for leisure – Budapest is worth exploring for true music lovers on so many levels. With our heartfelt best wishes, Kornél Magyar music director
