... but the only movie showing in English! It was actually much better than I expected and a good way to stay dry!
On our second morning, I had noticed that my tooth was gradually getting sorer and sorer whenever I chewed on it. The night we arrived I was munching on some wasabi chips and thought I felt something that wasn't quite right. On closer inspection in the mirror, sure enough I could see a big crack right down the centre of one of my teeth (one I'd had ...
... old Czech time. The astronomical dial shows the movements of the sun and the moon, and a third dial is for zodiacal signs. The clock itself is actually pretty difficult to understand, but its greatest attraction for most tourists is the hourly show of statues of the Twelve Apostles who appear one after the other. On each side of the clock are statuettes representing Vanity, Greed and Hedonism. A fourth statuette, Death represented as a skeleton, strikes the hour. There are, of ...

It was an I the resting walk because we walked through a mall area with shops and the buildings weren't so old.

I could of spent hours up there but there was a line of us walking ever so slowly around the 4 walls taking photos at every opportunity we got. I had taken the lift up so decided to walk down the spiral stairs and then headed into the square where there were heaps of different street performers. There was an old guy playing some weird instrument I had never seen ...

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.
