Budapest, Hungary

Hungary is Central Europe at its finest. Although it may be somewhat small in stature, it is no slouch when it comes to tourist appeal. An eternal draw is its luxurious spas, where visitors lounge in healing waters fed by the country’s 1,000+ thermal springs. Hungary is known for its hand-painted porcelain, fabulous cuisine, plentiful World Heritage sites, and an architecture consisting of everything from elaborate baroque churches to stunning hilltop castles.

Budapest straddles the Danube River, with the city of Buda on one bank and the city of Pest on the other. You can’t go wrong either way. In fact, a great way to start your visit is to take in the view from one of the bridges connecting the two sides. Afterward, head off on a coffeehouse or pub crawl, sample some of the city’s famous goulash, enjoy a show at one of the many concert halls, or take a long soak in a hot spring at an area bathhouse.

The Hotel

With the rich, lavish atmosphere of a historic Hungarian palace, exquisite design inspired by music, perfect location beside St. Stephen's Basilica, and stunning year-round Roof Garden with 360˚ views, it is no surprise that Aria Hotel Budapest was ranked No. 1 Hotel in the World by Trip Advisor’s 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards. Something unique about this luxury boutique hotel is that each of the four wings is dedicated to one of four major genres of music: 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 High Note SkyBar will be one of the highlights of your stay at the Aria Hotel Budapest. This is a full-service, lushly landscaped rooftop garden designed for your personal dining, cocktails, and sunbathing pleasure, all while reveling in the breathtaking views of Budapest. Another feature guests will love is the Music Garden courtyard, a one-of-a-kind glass enclosure, bringing the beauty of the outdoors inside, allowing guests a clear view of the sky and stars above.

After exploring Budapest, Satchmo's Bar & Library is just the spot for you to unwind, meet with friends, or mingle with the local crowd. Choose your groove, from the lively, glamorous retro bar to a quiet and romantic spot by the fireside lounge - or dine al fresco with cool drinks, hot jazz, and casual dining served on the garden terrace. When your appetite for dinner kicks in, head over to Michelin-starred Onyx Restaurant, bringing local ingredients and Hungarian tradition to the table with contemporary cooking techniques. Then cap your day off with complimentary access to Harmony Spa's 35-foot heated pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.
