Historical Traveler Reviews Ametyst Hotel Prague
Small Clean Hotel. Not the most central location
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.
The room was ample size, a little dated but very clean and comfortable.
Staff were friendly and were more than willing to assist whenever necessary.
Buffet breakfast was OK, but the restaurant is small and it was difficult to get an empty table at times.
Next time I visit Prague I will stay closer to the centre, near Charles Bridge.
Not as good as I expected
We stayed at Hotel Ametyst from 26th Desember to 30th December was our honeymoon.
When we arrived we had excellent treated by Roman the Receptionist who answered all our questions.
We had the room which was with street view which was quite good compared with the previous one we had.
For a four star Hotel they should have at least one channel in spanish , we don't had any in all the TV Channels just Germans and English and two in local language!!! I can't not believe!
Even the Director Explanation for your welcome TV spot to the Hotel was in German , what hapen with the people that don't speak German!
Breakfast Bufet was poor, no iogurts , no expresso coffe ( if you want pay a part not included ) , no natural orange juice. At least the service was good.
Sometimes the breakfast room was crowded not tables enough.
The neighborhood is quite good close to downtown 15 minutes walking or two metro stops.
Concerning the restaurants there are two in Belicka street excellent one is called Hlucna Samota ans is just in the corner and the other is a Mexican Bohemian just in front.
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.
More like a two/three star hotel
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.
On the positive side, the rooms were clean and were equipped with a safe and mini bar, the hotel offers a much welcomed (free - except of course for tip) clothes ironing service and the breakfast buffet was good (although with the restaurant size was far too small for the number of hotel residents, on each of the four mornings we ate there, it was rather like feeding time at the zoo).
On the downside, the hotel is a very long walk from the centre of Prague and 10-15 minutes from the metro/tram pick up point (not to mention this walk is mostly up hill on the cobbled pavements and roads), unfortunately the hotel (as well as many taxi drivers in this city) too overcharges for a taxi pick up service from the airport (800kc), we found the front office staff to be most unwelcoming and unfriendly, this lacking in communication also unfortunately extended to the breakfast staff (no staff member was allocated to seat and greet or even offered any kind of explanation/introduction on what their breakfast process was), the rooms were not air conditioned which with the front facing rooms we had, this meant that they were too warm and stuffy when the window was shut, or with the window open, a night of guaranteed disturbed sleep (from the noisy street below), in conclusion the hotel is rather overpriced for what it offers.
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.
Ametyst fails to deliver
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?
Overall, decent, but not the greatest hotel. Definately not 4-stars. They've got to get real mattresses.
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.

... we passed under the Charles Bridge. There wasn't a soul on the famous walking bridge at that time of the morning. Little did we know in only a matter of hours it would be so packed you would be flat out crossing it. We realise now that we should have got a photo then.
Feeling rather hungry, we came across this cafe / hotel that had great ratings on 'tripadvisor'. Looking around inside, the place looked really fancy. When we were asked if we had ...
... We had tastes of several wines and then bought a couple of bottles, one to take home and lay. One bottle we purchased from the wine maker as he advised us after tasting. He invited to his winery in France and we are thinking that a wine tasting trip to Europe just might be in our future.
Back to the café Salvia for dinner. Then a nighttime stroll out to the bridge. On the way back to our room we bought macaroons for a ...
... food mostly in comparison to America the most. The "sweets" in America are too sweet, and the sweets here are perfect, even though most Czechs say they don't really like them. And in the USA, it is cheap to eat fast food and more expensive to buy healthy food, whereas it's completely opposite in Prague. I think that is so backwards. I think that we should take advice from Europe and make it the other way around like they do. My first ...
... point was more beautiful than the one before it. Prague is simply a gorgeous city. All of the buildings are stone and have red terra-cotta roofs. We ended the walk with dinner at a restaurant, where we sat outdoors. Scott and I both ordered a typical austro-hungarian food called Goulash with a side of dumplings. It was fantastic! We enjoyed Radim's company and bid farewell when it became late.
The next day we did a free walking city tour in the morning ...
... down to the hostel to cool off. We made ourselves some pesto pasta for dinner and starting getting ready to go out. There are two girls from Bath in our dorm now so we got chatting with them and are going to go on a bar crawl with them. Some American lads overheard us talking so they are coming too! It was a great night and relatively cheap as our tickets gave us unlimited drink in the first bar - dangerous ...
