As we’re expecting a baby we decided to do a very last trip together, before we become a family of three. It was for no special purpose, just to chill, relax and do some sightseeing during Easter holidays, instead of staying at home and getting full of all the food. We’ve both been in Budapest before but only for a really short time – I was there for less than 12 hours for Rihanna’s concert some years ago and Luka had his bachelorette party in Budapest at the end of January, but obviously they didn’t do any sightseeing while staying there. Therefore Budapest felt like a good place for a quick prolonged weekend escape and we loved it! As we didn’t have much time in the city and we wanted to enjoy it as much as possible we searched for a hotel with central position and Aria Hotel Budapest seemed like a prefect choice and it defenitely was!
The Aria Hotel Budapest sits on a picturesque street next to the majestic Saint Stephen’s Basilica in Budapest’s historic city centre and it’s located in a wonderful, pedestrian area filled with delightful shops, restaurants, and attractions. It’s just a short walk away from all the main sightseeing points as Chain Bridge and others, so it offers an ideal location to explore Budapest.
BREAKFAST IN BED
One of the main “attractions” while we travel is breakfast. At least for me. I always search for good coffee, breakfast and brunch spots and that’s how we start our exploring days. Well if we happen to stay in a hotel with perfect room service the breakfast in bed is always the thing to do. As it was a pleasure trip and we didn’t really had much plans we enjoyed our Sunday with sleeping in and having the yummiest breakfast in bed. And on the terrace. How wouldn’t we as the rooms are so luxury, comfortable and colourful that you don’t even wanna leave this place.
The hotel is actually divided by areas and we stayed in Music Garden area in a room with new baroque design, inspired by varied musical genres. The best thing about the room was our bathroom (above) and the fact that each room has a private open air balcony overlooking the magnificent Music Garden Courtyard.
GOLDEN HOUR and WINE O’CLOCK AT THE MOST AMAZING ROOFTOP OF ALL TIMES!
After the super busy day, full of sightseeing and walking around the city we decided to take the night off and enjoy the spa. Walking around the city with this belly is not a piece of face to be honest, but when you can relax in the spa before the bed time it doesn’t really matter. Pool and jacuzzi time in this atmosphere – well what else could I wish for after a busy day?
All of you who know me know that I love staying in boutique hotels. It’s not always an option as those are normally more expensive than others, but when I do I enjoy it big time. I just love the interior and the story behind each of them. The Aria Hotel Budapest is a luxury boutique hotel with an exquisite design inspired by music, divided into four wings and 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.
WINE and CHEESE O’CLOCK
Probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced in a hotel – FREE wine and cheese o’clock for all the guests in a nice atmosphere of classical music. I mean, can every hotel adds this to their offer? The stunning glass-enclosed courtyard is the heart of the hotel and that’s where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast and afternoon wine & cheese reception. Do I need to mention that the selection of cheese and wine was ahhhmazing?
