Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful stay at Aria. We were staying as a family, and the staff were very accommodating of our 3-year-old daughter. Particular highlights were the pool (which never had anyone in it - perfect for an excited toddler!), the breakfast and the beautiful jazz piano from 4-6 pm each day. One day, a young man played a rendition of the theme from Interstellar, which brought tears to my eyes. I’d recommend this hotel to anyone based on that alone!

Beautiful hotel, friendly, clean, fabulous facilities & staff. Location perfect for a city break. From the moment we arrived at the hotel door we were welcomed into a tranquil, safe, clean, beautiful hotel. The staff went above & beyond to ensure we were happy. Excellent food, the afternoon wine & cheese accompanied by a pianist or singer provided a perfect moment to reflect on the adventures of the day.

Stunning 5 star hotel near St Stephen’s Basilica! We loved the attention to detail with music themes throughout the hotel, including the opera wing. The suite itself was very well furnished and we had lots of space including a table with chairs, sofa, and two seats in the adjoining room. Also included two nespresso machines and mini fridges. Hotel amenities included breakfast and an afternoon happy hour with snacks.

Every member of staff made us welcome from arrival to departure. Hotel's central location is perfect to access any of Budapest's areas and sights as it's adjacent to St Stephen's Basilica and only 3 minutes walk from the metro and trams. Rooms very attractive, many amenities either in room or available on request. Comfortable beds and pillow options. Every detail on their website is accurate. Decent breakfast in the beautiful Music Garden with glass roof and complimentary wine and cheese was welcome in the afternoon after sightseeing. Then drinks at sunset in their rooftop High Note Sky Bar was a daily treat. A minor glitch was dealt with immediately; we can't wait to return to Aria Hotel Budapest.

My Aria Hotel experience was magnificent and one of the best birthday weekends I could ever ask for. The main highlights were the attentive, courteous and welcoming staff & not forgetting the spectacular food, views from the rooftop and overall location. I will warn you, once you been to the spa it will be immensely difficult to leave the hotel for sightseeing as it gives you the slice of papering that everyone deserves to experience. I highly recommend visiting this hotel and for a first time visit it really is the ideal spot, to get to know Budapest Ten xx😊

We stayed at the Aria whilst celebrating our anniversary in Budapest. The hotel is impressive. The decor is just amazing and we had a beautiful room. The hotel staff were fabulous, we had a lovely anniversary card and champagne given to us on arrival and were able to check in early. The location of this hotel is perfect for exploring all parts of Buda and Pest on foot. We walked everywhere! This hotel has amazing ambience and guests are made to feel very special. The complimentary cheese & wine served daily in the afternoon is a charming touch and Mathias who served us every night was one of the best waiters we’ve had the pleasure of meeting. He was friendly and attentive and incredibly funny & witty. The pool and spa facilities are also worth visiting when staying here. The roof top bar is breath taking with magical views. The staff in the roof top bar were very attentive. Recently this hotel featured on one of the episodes of The Apprentice! I would love to go back to Budapest just to stay at the Aria.
