Rnriggins stayed here on Jul 21, 2011 during their trip titled: Ben, Lee & Bobby tour Europe.
On my first night I had a chance to have a quick walk around before it got dark and then I headed back to the hotel for a huge and extremely overpriced meal & a couple of pints – which after flying all day pretty much put me to sleep.
On Tuesday I did the touristy thing and hit the main part of town. Most areas here are so close …
I spent the past week on holiday (as the Europeans say) with my parents. Our trip consisted of Vienna, Prague and Budapest. These cities are considered to be the Three Crown Jewels of Europe because of their splendor and beauty. After much anticipation, Mom and Dad finally arrived in Vienna 2 Saturdays ago and we had a wonderful time from beginning …
... to an Indian man's art. It was contemporary art and it was very...unique because it was pornographic with parahumans in very violent scenes. All the paintings had bright colors and were appeal at first glance, but on second look one could see the gruesome scene. This was probably the artists purpose but it was a little much for me.
After that, Megan (my roommate) and Laura (a Puerto Rican girl from Florida) went out to eat at ...
... the Old Town, saw the Astronomical clock do its thing, and had a fine meal at the Hard Rock Cafe while people-watching on the square (Tom’s choice). It really is as much fun to watch the people watching the clock chime the hour, with its skeletons to remind us that our time is quickly passing, as it is to watch the clock itself. Even with gray skies and wet weather, Prague is still lovely.
Our hotel, the Hastal, is located a few blocks NW of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ametyst Hotel Prague
I really enjoyed this trip to Prague - Hotel staff were friendly, hotel was small but very clean, but I was a little disappointed with the location of the hotel. Most days/nights we took a walk into the centre which would take around 15-20 mins from the hotel...wouldn't have minded this walk, except on a night time the streets surrounding our hotel are somewhat remote, so it felt a little dangerous walking back down quiet and dark streets.
We stayed at Hotel Ametyst from 26th Desember to 30th December was our honeymoon.
Serves its market well
Two 68 year old ladies found this hotel a good base from which to explore the city. It is 7 minutes to the Metro and tram but then quickly into the centre. The area is quiet, residential and safe to walk round at night. Round the corner we found the Hlucna samota, an excellent bar/restaurant, with good food and friendly staff and customers. Cheap too (on average we paid for the 2 of us the equivalent of £15 for 2 courses and a beer) The hotel twin room was big enough for 2, clean, warm yet with a window that opened! There was a bath as well as a shower. BBC News on the TV. Large selection at breakfast. We didn't eat in, but were told the dinners were good and reasonable prices. The staff all spoke enough English to be helpful with taxis etc.
Great Weekend Break
I travelled to Prague with my husband, mother and 2 children. The Ametyst Hotel was a great base for our weekend. We were close enough to the centre but far enough away to have undisturbed nights. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpfull, booking trips for us and arranging taxis etc. The children (aged 10 and 12) weren't sure if they would enjoy this trip but we all had a brilliant time.
Just returned from a four night stay at the Ametyst Hotel in Prague. Overall we were rather disappointed with the hotel, perhaps our expectations and experiences of what this four star hotel should be were too high for the Czech hotel star rating system - this felt more like a three or even a two star hotel.
An Over-rate City?
We have just returned from a 3 night break in Prague, staying at the Hotel Ametyst. The hotel was clean, and the staff very helpful, food ok. The postition of the hotel was very deceptive - "a few minutes to walk to Wenceslas Square" - turned out to be a good 20 minutes, walking through some undesirable areas. Wenceslas Square - just a shopping area with a few nice buildings and very expensive shops?
The old town was beautiful, the bridge area, castle area well worth visiting, but when you have "done" the old town, haven't you "done" Prague?!
Clean comfortable hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Area around hotel quiet residential area with some good bars/cafes/restaurants which are much better value than tourist areas in centre.
Stayed there for 3 nights in august. Bills itself as a 4-star hotel. In reality it falls short. Location is in New Town, close to K5 Relax if you're in prague just for some fun, but everything else you want to see is in Old Town, a 10 minute walk and a 5 minute metro ride away. Arrived at airport and got the guy at the info booth to arrange a "cab" ride for 450 crowns, which is not bad (never use official prague cabbies...they're commie thieves). Hotel is about 15 minuts from the airport. Staff was ok but didn't smile, which is not suprising since Czechs aren't known for being shiney happy people. Internet access was one free public PC but it was fast so i give it thubs-up. Room itself wasnt big but not small either. BED WAS TERRIBLE!! Hard as a rock. Couldnt sleep sometimes. The hotel also says "Air Conditioned (Partial)", which i think means open the window and let the cool air and sounds of Prague in, because there was no air vent in the room. Room door did not lock without tugging on it. Oh, the room did have a safe but it opened with your digital room key, not with a combination. Now how safe is room safe when the staff can just cut a copy of the room key?
This hotel is set in a quiet residential area in Prague. Although a good 12mins walk from nearest metro, there is a tram stop within 5 mins walk. The room is clean and well equipped. There is a good selection for breakfast. The staff are helpful especially with directions.
You do have to pay extra for sauna/steamroom.
Thank you Priceline!
We just returned from a very pleasant stay in Prague at the Hotel Ametyst which is located in a great residential part of Prague, Vinhorady. We felt like we "lived" in Prague by staying here rather than being tourists. The hotel is a few blocks from both the metro and tram lines which make it very accessible to Old town, Jewish Quarter and the Castle. We often just walked to these other neighborhoods. The hotel is in very good condition, clean with modern facilities. The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff quite helpful. I was able to get the room for $125 a night which might have been a bit too high a bid but we were pleased with the outcome.
