We stayed in a 1 bedroom sea view apartment, which was very spacious and very clean. We did have issue with key cards but they were replaced immediately by front desk staff. The Staff throughout the property very friendly and ready for any guidance required. They also had free shuttle to the taksim.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

The Fraser Anthill in Istanbul is a wonderful hotel, and I would stay here again, but it does have a few small annoyances that keep this from being a 5 star review.

Pros:
1. Cleanliness - The entire hotel is absolutely immaculate. You won't find a speck of dust anywhere, and the housekeeping does a great job of cleaning each day practically to the point of asepsis.
2. Safety - The hotel does a great job of making you completely secure. There are security guards in the parking lot, followed by security guards in the main lobby. You have to then scan your hotel key card to go past the hotel, and then scan it again to activate the elevator. Once inside your room, there is both a deadbolt and a chain. Needless to say someone would be hard pressed to break in.
3. The Room - even the smallest room is huge - a very large living room with couch, desk, and flatscreen TV, floor to ceiling windows with beautiful views of Istanbul and the Bosphorus, a well appointed kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher and full size refrigerator/freezer, a large bathroom and a separate bedroom with another set of floor to ceiling windows.
4. Washer/dryer in the room - while part of the room, this was such a useful and great thing to have during a long stay in a foreign country it deserved its own bullet point.
5. Recreation facilities - the fitness center is larger than my own gym back home, there are two large pools (indoor and outdoor), a sauna, game room (with PS3 and Xbox games, as well as pool tables), yoga, pilates, spin class, etc etc. - there's even an indoor simulated ski slope.
6. Grocery store - the hotel has a grocery store on the ground floor (a French chain, Carrefour) with everything from fresh produce to baked goods and laundry detergent. It's fairly priced and it was so handy to not have to search around Istanbul for a grocery store. We saved quite a bit of money buying milk and cereal to have for breakfast vs room service.

Cons:
1. Card-based electricity - in order to keep the electricity on in your room (aside from the refrigerator) you have to have your key card in a slot. If you take it out, everything goes off, including the air conditioning. I believe they do this to ensure you turn everything off when you go out, but who wants to return to an 80 degree room after walking around Istanbul in August? We stuck a business card in the slot (which worked) but found the maid had removed it when cleaning the room.
2. Very strange pool rules - The pool has very specific rules to avoid being throw out. For example, you may only wear "normal" bathing suits - swimming trunks for a man and a bikini or one piece for a woman. So people who like to swim with shirts, for example, will not be allowed. They also require you wash your feet before entering....which would be fine if that didn't mean sticking your feet in a big hole in the floor filled with USED soapy water from everyone else!! There was even visible sediment in the bottom. Needless to say, I refused to do this every time. Furthermore, they require you to wear a swim cap, and if you don't bring one from home they will force you to buy it from their little shop by the pool for $8-$20 US dollars (scam much?).
3. No one can find it - beware taxi drivers will pretend to know where it is, but will drive in circles lost until they stumble upon it. The building is simply too new, and away from the main part of Istanbul, so no one really knows how to find it.
4. Not good for walking - the area around the hotel is very gritty and full of construction, stray cats, and sometimes even begging children. You will need to take a taxi almost everywhere.

Overall I would stay again just for the big room and nice facilities, but they do have a little work to do in the future.

Room Tip: Cheapest rooms, 1 bedroom, are still huge.

The apartment hotel complex is located a very short trip from the city. average cost of a taxi is about 6-8 euros. There is a direct tunnel from hotel to the first sea port and a direct motorway to the main center and takism square. The hotel is a in a very safe location with fantastic facilities; indoor pool, great gym, games room, fantastic spa center, hair salons, nails, great cafe's (you must try Roberts Cafe Burgers!) and a very good sized supermarket that has everything for breakfast lunch and dinner - it is a god sent.

There are regular taxi services from the hotel to the city. DO NOT PAY a fixed price for any taxi if the driver says so. Always ask for meter. Going to the city the taxi's are provided as part of a taxi station for the hotel, but on the way back be careful. the maximum we paid was 16 Turkish Lira's from as far as the grand bazaar.

This is a superb location and you need not to leave the complex after a busy day of sight-seeing in Istanbul, great place to comeback and relax and chill out. Kids can hop in the pool, or play games in the games room, or try the indoor ski simulator.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which was modern, clean and more than big enough for a family of 4, 2 kids and 2 adults. it had 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets and 1 shower, laundry with washing machine and dryer. The living and dinning and kitchen was all together but very spacious. We had sweeping views of the city and Bosporus Our rooms were regularly cleaned.

You will find alot of places to eat, a very short taxi ride (a fantastic Thai called Choc Choc in Takism square). Food should not be a problem for anyone. It was nice to comeback from a busy istanbul, shower, chill out and then head off to dinner very quickly. Go down to the port of Basikta's, there is a fantastic, seafood and meat restaurant where the ferry's are. This is a very short ride via the tunnel from the hotel about 5 euros. The restaurant has 2 floors, I think it is called Hanedas - very famous one. try it out. We loved it. You can sit on the second floor, see the sunset and ferrys as they come and go.

We stayed here 8 nights and leisurely did our tour of Istanbul and surroundings.

Great place for a family for sure!

My family and I stayed in this hotel for a week and it was an amazing stay. We were a family of 8 so we stayed in 2 two bedroom apartments. The apartments are very well equipped and have everything we need. They are well-spaced and have beautiful yet simple designs and lighting. The hotel's service is great and I feel I'm very safe in this hotel with security guards in every bit of the buildings and there are sometimes detection dogs on duty.

About the food, there are two restaurants and two coffee shops, one of the restaurants serves Turkish cuisine while the other is Italian and both have great food. The coffee shops serve amazing tea and desserts. There is also Carrefour Express, I won't really call it express because it has everything you need. There is even a salon for both men and women and a flower shop as well. If I ever visit Istanbul again, I will definitely stay in the Fraser Place.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the 46th floor as it has a disabled bathroom (mirror, shower and seat)

Yesterday i left fraser. I stayed there for 6 nights. Good for families but if you enjoy walking then u need to take a shuttle. Walking is not nice in that area. Service not really good. You need to wait for very long time untill they bring you what you need. Keys are very bad its card systems. But you need to keep changing it i dont know why!

The good thing there is a carrefour and a coffee shop.

An excellent choice for families with kids. The view is breathtaking, the appartment more than spacious and fully equipped. We took our breakfast in our room- I couldn't imagine a better place to go ( you can find all you need from the supermarket on site). Once we went to Dilek (also on site) for breakfast and that was great too.
Kids loved the outdoor activities area.
We rented a car and used the hotel's parking - this was very convenient- but taxis were also available all day long infront of the hotel. We used them to go to the historical center, other than that we found it easy to navigate around the city with our rented car.
So to conclude, Fraser is a choice second to none for families wth kids!
