Do you know any hotel that has an in-house musical director? The first-ever musically-themed hotel located in the historic city center near St.Stephen’s Basilica is the newest boutique hotel of Budapest where guests can experience a special musical programme during the stay. Unique to the Library Hotel Collection portfolio, the musical director, Mr. Magyar is responsible for curating the hotel’s extensive music library collection, managing the ambient audio in all common spaces, liaising partnerships with neighboring music venues, and coordinating musical experiences for guests in and beyond the hotel. The Aria concept is based on the musical concept to recreate the rich, lavish atmosphere of a historic Hungarian palace by the vision of master designer Zoltan Varro. 

It is divided into four design concepts/wings that are 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. An Experience Inspired by Music, one of the first themed concept founded by the owner of the chain who went to NYC with the age of 20 to build his career in hotel management.

It is under the Library Hotel Collection and Aria Hotel Budapest is the most recent jewel that is open since a year.
