“Awesome view from 50th floor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I stayed for 7 nights and requested for a non-smoking single-bedroom apartment. When I arrived, I was given a unit which has a strong tobacco smell so I requested for a non-smoking apartment. My new unit was located at 50th floor which had an awesome view of the Bosphorus. The apartment unit was spacious, comfortable and tidy. The amenities were plentiful and I especially love the body lotion, shampoo, shower gel and conditioner. The appliances and utensils provided were very good. I especially appreciate the complimentary water provided. Everything worked well and when the water in the sink could not drain out, the technician repaired promptly even on a Saturday. Wifi signal was very strong and the cable TV had a lot of channels.

Breakfast was good but it was exactly the same (except the soup) throughout my stay. I wished the management could alternate the variety a little. I had dinner once at the restaurant too and the service and food were excellent. The waiter made recommendation to me and it was delicious.

I really enjoyed the gym which was huge with state of the art equipment. Swimming pool both indoor and outdoor but you must wear a swimming cap. There were sauna, spa and massage facilities, even an indoor ski slope. Downstairs, there are shops like dry-cleaner, restaurants, cafe & a Carrefour market.

The location is quite far from most tourist attractions and I used taxi most of the time. Fortunately there was a taxi stand outside the hotel. A trip to Dolmabahce Palace is around 10-15TL; to Chora Museum is about 20TL. The reception gave good advice about the tourist attractions that I wanted to visit. They would also write the names of the places in Turkish to show to the taxi drivers which was very helpful. The room card has a map and name of hotel which I used to show taxi drivers the way back. I never encountered any problem with taxi rides.

The immediate surrounding was not pedestrian-friendly and dirty. However, walk past this horror and the stroll around the streets and neighborhood shops was enjoyable. The walk on cobbled back-streets or tar roads to Harbiye or Taksim districts took around 15-30 minutes. I would have given this hotel all 5 stars except for the location and surrounding.

So, 4-stars to Fraser Place Anthill and a big thank you to the management and staff.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Fraser Place Anthill Istanbul, Turkey!

Thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to review our property on Tripadvisor.

We are very pleased that you found our high quality apartments to be spacious, comfortable, tidy and, yes they come with Istanbul’s best view of the Bosphorus Starits. We do apologize for not adhering to your preference for a non-smoking room, but happy that it was quickly fixed.

It is indeed pleasing to note that during your stay you were able to enjoy the world class facilities and services we offer within the complex. We do rotate our breakfast items and presentation, but seems like it was not adequate – we will fix this immediately.

The main “touristic areas” of Istanbul, as in the old city is about 6 kms from our property, using the new Dolmabahce and Kagithane tunnel access. The main business and shopping districts are also within close proximity of Fraser Place and our residents are welcome to use our complimentary scheduled shuttle services that ply to some of these areas.

We are also happy to announce that the property surroundings (within Sisli district) are slated for an upgrade and we are certain this will be completed soon.

Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. We look forward to welcoming you back to Fraser Place Anthill Istanbul in the not too distant future.

Sincerely Fraser,

The hotel is great. It is a new hotel and one of the highest towers in Istanbul. Its main issue is that it is far from all the touristic areas of Istanbul and even from the nearest metro station. The two bedroom flat I stayed in is equipped with one toilet only. Otherwise, it is well equipped with kitchen utensils, dish washer, washing machine, etc... The hotel starts from the 39th floor so we stayed at the 41st floor which offered us a good view of Istanbul. Carrefour express shop is available along with many coffee shops in the ground floor. Except for the pool/ gym, all other facilities are chargeable including electric adapter (10 TL=5US$). To use the pool, you need head cover which is also chargeable.
Last issue, being new, most Taxi drivers don't know the location of the hotel.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Fraser Place Anthill Istanbul, Turkey!

Thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to review our property on Tripadvisor.

We are very pleased that you found our property to be great, and yes, we are one of the tallest towers in Istanbul, with views that are marvelous.

The main “touristic areas” of Istanbul, as in the old city is about 6 kms from our property, using the new Dolmabahce and Kagithane tunnel access. The main business and shopping districts are also within close proximity of Fraser Place and our residents are welcome to use our complimentary scheduled shuttle services that ply to some of these areas.

It is pleasing to note that during your stay you were able to enjoy the world class facilities and services we offer within the complex. As per law, all guests must wear a head cap / cover in our pools, and, if you forget one - we do sell them at the Reception.

And, I end with a Personal Tip - when taking a taxi to the property, mention – Anthill Kuleleri, Bomonti and a large percentage of drivers will get it right.

Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Fraser Place Anthill Istanbul in the not too distant future.

Sincerely Fraser,

My partner & i stayed at Fraser's for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff were always warm & attentive & made us feel at home. Our apartment was well-furnished & comfortable & had everything we needed for our stay including a washing machine, dryer & spacious dining & kitchen area.

The location was great as it was close to many place of interests & shopping malls. The facilities impressed us - the size of the gym took me by surprise. It was much larger than I expected & very well-equipped! I also loved taking a dip in the indoor pool. We also really appreciated the fact that the security was top-notch and that there was a supermarket right below. Top points for convenience!

There's no doubt that we will be choosing Fraser's for all our future trips to Istanbul!

Much thanks & appreciation to the wonderful staff for the awesome experience.

A very nice experience to live on around the 50th floor. It is a new and a very modern hotel.
The staff is very helpful and service minded. Sometime a lack of English but very seldom a problem. There were always someone close by from the staff that could solve the situation.
The room was an one room apartment to a very high standard.
The breakfast was very good.
Easy to get a taxi if you want to go somehere.
The hotel is in a new development where you find shops and cafes.
The gym and pool is of a very high standard.

I stayed at this property recently in July during my summer trip and I was so happy to have chosen Frasers! The apartments are very well maintained and the views from the rooms are very good. The service from the front office staff and the luggage delivery staff is also very good. They are polite. The property is located in Sisli, very near Taksim and also the shopping area of Nisantasi in only a 5 minute taxi drive away. Cavahir Mall is also a 5 min taxi drive away. The security in the building is controlled very well and this surely gave us the feeling of safety! We used the free shuttle bus to go to the old city and really enjoyed the long summer days we spent in Istanbul.

The Fraser complex has a good buffet breakfast restaurant in the lobby. Also, in the lobby floor just outside the reception is a coffee shop, a florist, a medicine shop, a hairdresser, a local Turkish cafe and a Carrefour Express. Good to have all this within the entire area! The WIFI is free, and the connection is very strong. Overall, we had a very good 6 days at Fraser Istanbul and if we visit again, we will come back.
