Feel at home without sacrificing comfort and facilities even if you’re far away – this is the idea behind the term “Serviced Apartments”. One of the best and most reputable providers of this business somewhere between renting a home and staying in a hotel room is Frasers Hospitality. Recently several locations of the company were granted a total of nine prizes at the World Travel Awards, the “Oscars of the travel industry”. Fraser Residence Budapest, for example, was awarded the best serviced apartments in Hungary title.
The Swiss managing director of Fraser Residence Budapest, Alain Goetschel, spoke to The Budapest Times about what makes serviced apartments especially appealing. “We basically work like a hotel,” he said. “The difference is that our apartments offer more space. The smallest units measure 35 square meters, and the size goes all the way up to the huge penthouse.”
The apartments are equipped with a full kitchen, dishes and a washing machine. This allows for a completely autonomous life but with a few extras, including a 24-hour reception, breakfast and cleaning service; in other words, the cosiness of your own four walls without having to forgo the extras of staying in a hotel.
Fraser Residence Budapest is in a prime location – 31 Nagytemplom utca – near the rapidly developing Corvin Promenade in District VIII. “Even since the 2011 opening of Fraser Residence, the surroundings have undergone significant changes,” says Goetschel. Today there are many more shopping options, entertainment venues, cafes and restaurants.
The clientele of Fraser Residence Budapest is as diverse as life itself. Guests not only include tourists who have come to explore the beauty of the Danube metropolis, but also many short- and long-term business travellers, who prefer the home-like comfort of serviced apartments to a hotel room. Even a family with children who relocated to the Hungarian capital for work reasons called Fraser Residence Budapest their home for a while, says Goetschel.
To guarantee the satisfaction of both short- and long-term guests, Goetschel and the Fraser Residence Budapest not only offer quality with the help of their friendly and multilingual staff, but also adaptability to the habits and wishes of the guests. The apartments and the corresponding service rank in the range of four-star hotels.
The fact that Fraser Residence Budapest has now been chosen for the second year in a row as “Hungary’s Leading Serviced Apartments” and the company Frasers Hospitality as Hungary’s “Leading Serviced Apartment Brand” at the World Travel Awards demonstrates that the strategy of the apartment hotel is successful.
