Pros: good hotel, had a nice room and a very spacious bed. Breakfast was good, nice selection of hot food/drinks ,cold meats cheese etc and standard cereals. Near to local restaurants/bars and trams/metro lines. Cons: Tried slapping me with a €200 smoking charge when personally I don't smoke. Apparently cleaners smelt smoke in my room and had to 'clean it' (even though for the 4 nights I was there didn't once replace the milks or toilet rolls). Spoke to reception about the smoking charge and suddenly their English was suddenly terrible even though we spoke perfectly good English to eachother hours before. Was told to come by the next morning about the charge to which the guy didn't seem to want to take me up on it and canceled it which was nice but put a bit of a dampener on an otherwise great day however makes me think about others who had also been charged and got away with it. I will however be checking my CC to make sure additional charges haven't been made. Other than that its a good enough hotel but I doubt I would stay again because of this one incident.
I stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend. It was an overall fantastic experience. The hotel is situated in quiet residential streets in a beautiful area which is easy to navigate, and a short 10min walk to the nearest train station. Also in the area was lots of small, more traditional pub/restaurants which were fun to try out in the evening as it was away from all the busy tourist streets. Our room was spotless with everything working and was large enough to be comfortable, and the free safe provided was useful to store passports and money etc. The staff were very friendly and provided us with maps and tourist information and also were able to exchange our notes for change so we could use the public transport. There was a large range of hot and cold food at breakfast such as eggs, bacon and pancakes as well as cheeses and fruit. The breakfast area was clean and not too crowded also. Definitely would recommend as it is well worth the money spent.
My friend and I visited Prague on a City Break for 5 days. The Hotel was excellent - from the Reception staff, porter, cleaning lady and not forgetting our Bar Maid who was a lovely helpful girl, who made the most delicious paninis. Rooms were well furnished, bathroom was a wet room shower, with toilet etc. Breakfasts were the usual continental plus cooked sausage, etc., and there was plenty to eat. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes from the City but there are plenty of trams running every 5-10 mins. Our stay at the Ametyst was most enjoyable.
Hotel Ametyst saved my boyfriend and I - we booked a hostel for a few days stay in Prague as part of a larger Europe trip, however upon arriving it was filthy and we simply could not stay there. We searched online for a few hours before finding the hotel ametyst. It was a little above our budget at £200+ however we were at a loss so we booked anyway. I'm so glad we did. We had a deluxe double and we were so shocked and amazed when we came in and discovered we had a balcony with absolutely stunning views of the city. The bed was massive and so comfortable, with a fantastic shower and great mini fridge to keep our water cold. The breakfast was good, could do with more hot food but no real complaints there. We were given good advice from the receptionist about the hop on hop off tour and she helped us book the tickets. Only thing to note would be that our room was on the 6th floor, while the lift only goes to the 5th. This wasn't an issue when we were coming and going from the hotel during the day however my boyfriend had to cart the 25kg suitcase plus a 10kg bag up the spiral staircase to the room and then back down again when we left which was not ideal, I'm just glad he we there as I could not have carried it at that weight! Anyway, that's only a small point. I would definitely stay here again, if the price was right. The location is fabulous as it is far enough out of the city centre that there's no hustle and bustle but close enough that taxi/cab fairs are cheap. I would recommend using uber, we used uber the whole time we stayed here and the prices were very reasonable. Loved the stay, made our time in Prague. :)
The Ametyst Hotel is in an ideal location - away from the hustle and bustle of Central Prague, with local amenities close by (shops, restaurants the metro). The location is ideal after days spent in the Old Town, shopping or on a tour. The Breakfast offers a wide selection of continental and classic choices - anything from sausages and beans, to cereals, sliced meats and fruits. Recommend upgrading to the executive rooms, they are modern, spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful from the get go, we have our cases taken to our rooms for us and received complimentary fruit, water and a cocktail voucher upon arrival. Rooms have A/C included and the safe is free of charge (very rare!) and its cleaned everyday. I would highly recommend Hotel Ametyst as your base of operations throughout your visit to the beautiful city which is Prague.
We spent 6 nights in Hotel Ametyst, in 2 rooms with a connecting door. The rooms were clean and tidy, as well as the bathrooms. Breakfast was basic but nice, although it did not offer many choices for vegans. The hotel is located in a quiet street but we found all we needed in a walking distance: a minimarket, many pubs and restaurants, a trum station and a metro station. All together, very good value for money and we would gladly stay there again.
Overall, this is a very nice hotel. We stayed there for 8 days and we really enjoyed our staying. The location and the area: the hotel is within a 5 minute walk from Namesti Miru Metro station, which takes you to the city center in just 10 minutes. It is situated in a quiet area, very close to a few local pubs, cafes, mini markets and restaurants. All of them are much cheaper than the ones at the historical city center. The hotel: the hotel itself did not disappoint us, although, as a building, it has no character. Of course that is of a little importance because it has so many advantages. The rooms are small but clean and the beds are comfortable. [We stayed at a superior room. That does not make it bigger than the average twin/double room but the wc is separate from the shower, and the wash basin is next door along with the shower, so you have to change rooms in order to wash your hands. I really can't understand the architect's way of thinking].The breakfast is endless and everything is of good quality. The hotel also has a bar with a really small lounge area, which needs to become bigger. The drinks are cheap and the bar staff know their job. The hotel staff is very professional and helpful. There is a sauna too but I didn't use it so I cannot express an opinion.
We arrived at the hotel too early to check-in, but the english-speaking receptionist was happy to store our baggage and then advise us on transport and routes to the sights. The hotel is set in a quiet area but only a short walk to the Metro station and several pubs,cafes and restaurants. Our room was on the second floor, overlooking the road. It was very quiet. It was everything we wanted with free wifi and tea/coffee and a fridge. Also a safe. There's a mini-market right next door so we could get fresh milk. Air conditioning was a bonus in high summer temperatures. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom and toilet were separate. Hanging space was limited but more than adequate for the amount of clothes we had. Buffet breakfast was served in a bright and airy dining room. There was plenty of choice - breads, cereals, fruit, yogurt, cheeses, cold meats, cakes and croissants. A big tea selection too. All staff were very friendly and some spoke excellent english. The dining room wasn't open in the evening. There is a bar but we didn't use it. It was a perfect location for a short break. We had airport transfers included (about 40 mins) but I think it would be easy to use the Metro. We would be more than happy to recommend this hotel to other travellers wishing stay in the beautiful city of Prague.
After booking the hotel, we decided to upgrade to the newly refurbished rooms. This was done via the hotel and at a very reasonable price. Pleased we choose this option as it had a balcony. The room was very clean. The hotel was a very short an easy walk to the metro station and tram station. The trams and metro ran every few mins. The cost was 110 cz, for unlimited travel for 24 hours. You can purchase tickets at the newsagents in the metro station. The metro is only two or three stops into the heart of prague. We found 2 really nice restaurants near the hotel. The food was amazing and much better value than eating in the centre of prague. The weather was unpredictable so definitely take an umbrella! We choose to do a 6 hour all inclusive tour of the city. This worked out about £38 each, but included a boat trip with a drink, and a traditional lunch in a restaurant. This is a great way to see the city and understand the history of Prague. My Partner and I would definitely return to this beautiful city and lovely hotel.
Located only 7 minutes walk from the subway and only a few stops to the heart of the old town and not far from a tram line, clean and comfortable with helpful and friendly staff. Organised our ongoing bus booking for us which was very handy. Bed comfortable, quiet street at night, hot water with good pressure, heating and cooling and a wide choice of dishes at breakfast. Lifts which is great when you have heavy bags. Close to many restaurants and a convenience store next door. Only negative, wifi was either very slow or didn't work at all which is annoying when you are trying to check opening times, tram routes and prevailing weather.
