“Super value - I'll be back!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I was very pleased with my 3-day stay here and will readily stay here again. This was my fourth visit to Budapest, and the Fraser is a real find.
The Fraser is excellent value for a studio apartment. My room was clean, light, spacious, had a full kitchenette, a sitting area with couch and table, a big comfortable bed, balcony, black-out curtains, a room safe, and a modern bathroom. I never heard any noise from other guests.
There's not much of a view -- just apartment buildings, a hotel, and construction site. But the windows let in plenty of light.
The location is perfect for using public transportation to/from the airport. The area appears a bit rundown at first, but thoroughly respectable. As single female I felt quite safe. The area seems to be undergoing renovation, with the nearby Corvin Mall, the Fraser, and other newer buildings leading the way.
The Fraser is in a newer building. The decor is modern. Staff are friendly and helpful. The manager circulated through the breakfast room chatting with guests and personally checking that we were satisfied with our stay.
Shops and grocery stores are near Corvin Mall.
Access to the tourist areas is quick and easy, whether by metro or by foot. The Applied Arts museum is a few blocks away.
The continental breakfast had a variety of breads, cold cuts, cheeses, a nice selection of vegetables and fruits, and boiled eggs. A coffee machine made fresh coffee to your taste. This was the only slight bottleneck, but I never waited long for my turn.
Based on value, I give the Fraser top rating. Certainly there are more luxurious hotels, but you'll pay a lot more.

Staying at this hotel means great value for your money! The rooms are spacious and in good condition, alongside with proper cleaning of the room by the house keeping personell. The staff are friendly (we would f.e always get a "good morning!" or "good evening!" whenever passing by someone from the staff) I really appreciate those small details bringing the experience of your stay to a higher level. The reception staff would always be very helpful too, and very knowledgeable.

The location of the hotel is a bit hidden which I find only positive, not getting to hear the noise from the streets too well. There are good communication opportunities nearby such as the subway, but walking to get to the Budapest city sentre and all of its attractions is a good option too, its not an effort. There is also some opportunities for shopping just around the corner thinking about the corvin plaza shopping mall.

The only thing I would like to remark on is the breakfast. I´m not a breakfast - person and so for me personally this isn't a big issue, but I did expect more from a four star hotel. They should expand the range of options on this particular area.

Overall I am really satisfied with our stay at fraser residence and I would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the beautiful capital of Hungary.

Room Tip: Rooms situated towards the inner yard.

We could not have got a nicer compliment than to read that “you would recommend Fraser Residence Budapest to anyone planning a trip to our beautiful capital!” Glad that you not only appreciated the flexibility, advantages of apartment living with the services of a 4 star hotel; but particularly enjoyed the comfort of our “very spacious” Suite (offering in average twice the size of a standard hotel room.) The team here at The Fraser Residence Budapest genuinely care for all guests and their passion for looking after others is what we believe will set us apart and hopefully ensure our guests will continue to return to the Fraser Residence Budapest.

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back soon. For your next stay; don’t hesitate to contact us or book directly thru our website to take advantage of our best rate guaranteed offers and promotions.

Warm regards,

Stayed here on a 4 day mini break. Walking distance to shops and restaurants, little further to main attractions/city centre but easy to locate. No complaints, clean, good value for money, friendly staff. Able to leave cases with reception after checking out due to later flight without charges. Overall a very pleasant stay, would recommend and would definitely stay again in the future.

Nice Hotel downtown Budapest. Location seemed a bit in a trashy looking Neighborhood. But the Hotel did a great Job in keeping the place great. Small area in the Reception area and Breakfast. High end Coffee machine but not meant for a big crowd. Should get rid of the shower curtain and put Glass. Secure parking for our Motorcycle. Appreciate the great stay and Info.
Would stay there again any time. Super close to the Metro and easy to get to any place.
Great stay.

Dear valued Guest, Thank you very much for sharing your experience. We were delighted to read that you had a great stay at the Fraser Residence Budapest and would stay again any time.

Regarding the location; The great majority of our guests like you; often share with me how much they indeed like the charming contrast between some of the few remaining older buildings (full of history) and the new residential Corvin Plaza area; that is now starting to be considered as one of the trendiest neighborhood of Budapest. From this enviable location, the Fraser Residence is indeed only moments away from a vibrant lifestyle street boasting a profusion of shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs, a cinema, a large supermarket and one of the city's largest leisure and sports facilities, with a swimming pool. The other advantages are; that all major & numerous cultural highlights Budapest has to offer; can be easily reached (1 or 2 subway stations) by the nearby, very efficient public transportations. I hope you had the time as well to stroll along the trendy and nearby pedestrian Raday Street where some of Budapest’s best restaurants and bars are located.

We look forward to many more opportunities to welcome you back to the Fraser Residence and to be at your service again.

Kind regards,
Alain Goetschel

We enjoyed our stay, we opted to stay in the penthouse apartment, as we were 5 adults and a little one. The apartment was spacious and well equipped and with a lovely balcony.
The hotel is quiet, in a good location, with the shopping centre only minutes away.
A few things could be improved though, the reception area is very small. We happened to arrive when people were waiting in the lobby and it was virtually impossible to manoeuvre through people and chairs. And I'm not talking about a group of 20.
Regarding the facilities, the penthouse is nice, however it's missing that wow factor that you expect when staying in a penthouse, like slippers and bathrobes and a minibar or ice. With soaring temperatures it is a shame that the residence offers no ice facilities.
Also, the apartment needed a touch of paint. It might seem as a small thing, but when you pay for a penthouse you expect a certain level of finishing touches, and sadly they were missing.

Breakfast was ok. I think it could definitely be improved upon. The room is small and one the first day we had to fight our way through the room, it was crowded, and it felt as everyone was on top of you whilst trying to eat. Staff were so eager to make room for other people that they literally cleared our plates whilst we were still eating.

Overall a good experience and a good interaction with staff.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you so much for taking your valuable time out to write this review. Your appreciation about our spacious, well equipped apartments and calm, ideal location is highly encouraging.
Your remark on scope for improvement has been shared with the respective departments for all possible immediate actions.

It can occasionally happen (like at any other hotel at peak times) that the check in process can be a little bit longer than usual; On those occasions our team does always offer to all our guests arriving in the morning the possibility to relax and have drinks in our breakfast lounge or lovely garden terrace whilst our housekeeping team tries to clean the rooms as promptly as possible.
I sincerely hope you’ll reconsider to stay with us again! Like many other guests who decided to choose again and again the Fraser Residence as they very much appreciate our very spacious, luxury serviced apartments (35-85sqm) with a “home away from home” feeling combined with all the luxuries of staying in a fully 24/7 serviced hotel.

I do sincerely hope that you will grant us another opportunity to show you our ability to provide a first class service that Frasers Hospitality is renowned for (in all our properties worldwide).
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if their is any way I could hopefully can assist you for a future stay at the Farser Residence Budapest.

Kind regards,
Alain Goetschel
General Manager

We stayed here for 3 nights in June, 2014. When we went to check in they lost our reservation. They eventually resolved the situation.

Location of the hotel is in district viii, which is an up and coming area. As we are world travellers & for the value of what the hotel has to offer we didn't mind the area. As I've seen way worst areas. We've even took the metro to the train station at 5am!

What I liked about the hotel was it was fairly new, free breakfast, & laundry in the unit (on request).
Also staffs were very friendly. Only reason I gave a 4 is because of issues with checking in.

Good location - near to big shopping centre and metro stations (line 3 - blue).
Obliging staff.
Spacious silent rooms with nice interior design and all needed facilities (we had washing-drying machine, hob+oven, fridge, iron, microwave oven, toaster, electric kettle, all needed dishes and cover, cable TV+DVD player, lock box).
Comfortable bed.
We had a cosy balcony with table and chairs.
Standard continental breakfast.
WiFi with acceptable internet speed (we had ~200 kbyte/s maximum).
Parking.

Disadvantages: cooling system didn't cool, just rotated air; a little bit dirty walls and holed window curtains; no hair-drier; some lamps didn't work; no soap powder for washing machine; we didn't have the "do not disturb" tag.

Dear valued Guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on your recent stay at Fraser Residence Budapest. We were delighted to read that you appreciated our spacious suites and it’s „interior design”, our helpful and friendly staff as well as our convenient and calm location.

Please be informed that we take very seriously your constructive remarks regarding the quality of our apartments. We have a strong ongoing preventive maintenance program in place; but seems like we need to speed it up. Normally our air condition can be set at your desired temperature and we immediately paint all the apartments and public areas marked walls or fix the slightly worn furniture’s. Thanks to your remark I addressed this issue to our maintenance team who already checked and corrected those mishaps.

We would be thrilled to have you back anytime in the future.

Warmest Regards,
Alain Goetschel
