Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Aria Hotel, Budapest

The Aria Hotel Budapest is a five-star luxury hotel with a vibrant and contemporary style, inspired by music. Located on the Pest side of the River Danube, the hotel offers an excellent central location from which to explore the city. Beyond the grand facade, guests are led through the hotel by a tiled path in the style of a piano to the chic interior courtyard, around which the hotel is built. The courtyard is decorated in a monochrome theme, punctuated with fresh splashes of green and gold that create a contemporary and inviting atmosphere. The well-appointed rooms and suites at the hotel are equally sophisticated and elegant. A neutral palette is attractively contrasted with bold coloured soft furnishings, feature walls and innovative modern art, many of which depict prominent musicians. The most striking feature of the hotel, however, is its roof top terrace area which claims impressive views over St Stephen's Basilica and the city beyond. Relax with a drink in the evenings or enjoy a daytime yoga class, while enjoying the chic surroundings and outstanding panoramic views. Guests can also enjoy the luxurious spa and wellness facilities at the hotel. After time spent exploring the city, indulge in a spa treatment or relax and refresh in the sauna and aromatic steam room. In the evenings guests may choose to dine at the hotel's Stradivari Restaurant, an intimate and refined space that serves a menu of Hungarian specialities with a modern twist. The bold music pattern on the walls and the innovative use of violins suspended from the ceiling make for a truly unique dining experience. After dinner perhaps enjoy a drink in the cosy Library Bar or enjoy the panoramic views from the High Note Skybar. The luxurious Aria Hotel Budapest is highly recommended for its vibrant, unique and elegant atmosphere, its impressive facilities and its excellent central location.

About Hungary

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to Hungary entices travellers as a country like no other, with a unique language and culture transplanted from Central Asia more than a thousand years ago. Situated right at the heart of Europe, and often mistakenly classified as one of the Balkan countries alongside neighbours Romania, Serbia and Croatia, Hungary boasts a spectacular setting on the banks of the Danube and an enchanting Mitteleuropa vibe – coffee houses and Turkish baths, Habsburg splendours and baroque architecture. Budapest naturally attracts the bulk of visitors to Hungary. With Budapest’s spectacular buildings and hotels, few ever venture beyond the city, except perhaps for a day trip on the Danube Bend. Richly rewarded as they will be, ignoring Hungary’s other towns and regions is a huge mistake: the farmland of the Southern Plain, the beautiful, vineyard-covered Villany Hills in Transdanubia, the forested Northern Uplands bordering Ukraine, the historic town of Sopron so enticingly close to Vienna, the Turkish-flavoured town of Pecs, and the resorts of Lake Balaton – Hungary is a fantastic country to explore, standing at the crossroads of East and West.

Highlights of Hungary

Budapest, with its coffee houses and thermal baths, as well of course as its wonderful cobbled Old Town, and the mansions, palace and sheer grandiosity of Castle Hill; Sopron one of the most charming medieval cities in Europe, and a gateway to the stunning Lover Hills; Esztergom, seat of Roman Catholicism in Hungary, and site of the country’s most important basilica; Visegrad, with its hilltop medieval castle overlooking the Danube Bend; the baroque architecture and wine cellars of Eger; Hortobagy, a tiny village at the heart of Hungary’s puszta, the country’s original Wild West; the Great Plains cultural capital of Szeged, full of Art Nouveau masterpieces; the vineyards of Villany; Pecs, with its Turkish feel and fabulous museums and mosques, galleries and Roman tombs; Lake Balaton, full of water sports resorts; Heviz, Europe’s largest thermal lake; Sumeg, home to one of Hungary’s most imposing castles; Danube river cruises; Veszprem, with its perfectly preserved castle district.

Travel around Hungary

Public transport is well developed in Hungary, with efficient bus and, in many cities and towns, trolleybus services. Budapest, Szeged, Miskolc and Debrecen also have trams, and there's a three-line metro (underground or subway) system and a suburban railway known as the HÉV in the capital. Hungary's bus network is a good - and sometimes necessary - alternative to the trains, with train travel on the Great Plain in Southern Transdanubia normally involving several time-consuming changes.
