Budapest’s Aria Hotel wins first prize in 2017 TripAdvisor awards

With an all-encompassing music theme apparent throughout its stylishly appointed rooms and facilities (including its multistory sky bar with sweeping views over the cityscape and the nearby Basilica dome), downtown Budapest’s luxurious Aria Hotel has continually earned worldwide praise since its grand opening in 2015 – and now it is officially the best hotel on the planet according to TripAdvisor’s 2017 Travelers’ Choice awards, determined by the globally popular reviewing website according to feedback from actual hotel guests.

Aria Hotel Budapest
  • 1051 Budapest, Hercegprímás utca 5.
Located within an extensively renovated central-Pest building just a few steps away from St. Stephen’s Basilica, the modern five-star Aria Hotel won first prize in TripAdvisor’s 2017 Travelers’ Choice awards over such dreamy destinations as a tropical Ritz-Carlton resort in Bali and Italy’s ultra-elegant Turin Palace Hotel. As of press time, TripAdvisor reports 568 “excellent” reviews for Aria Hotel, with 23 “very good” and only two “average” reviews, and absolutely zero “poor” or “terrible” reviews. Recent guest feedback describes the Aria Hotel as “Budapest’s Jewel of a Boutique Hotel”, with other reviewers describing it as “Excellent & Well Positioned”, “Amazing”, “Exceptional”, “Stunning”, “Fantastic”, and numerous other superlative adjectives.
The Aria Hotel is especially popular for its two-story open-air High Note SkyBar – also accessible for visitors who are not staying in guest rooms – featuring panoramic views over the Budapest cityscape to be enjoyed over excellent dining and cocktails. In addition to the TripAdvisor 2017 Travelers’ Choice award conferred today, the Aria Hotel also won the 2016 “Top Hotel in Central Europe” prize in the Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards, confirming that this city-center hotel is deeply appreciated by almost everyone who stays there. We congratulate the Aria Hotel team on their continued success!
