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.
