    Hotel Amethyst 2nights

    Some few negatives, sometimes poor wireless, the receptionist could not find our reservation, which was made two weeks in advance (but it is not a first time in Istanbul;)) At the checkout, the receptionist tried to charge us things from the minibar we didn't eat...;) but overall we were satisfied with the hotel.

  • 4.0.Fair

    My guest wasn't allowed to come into my room as hotel security prevented my guest. The hotel should have contacted me directly and not to deal with my guest. I have also found out that the hotel has taken money from my account in Dollars instead of local currency when I altered my booking on arrival. I am dealing with this issue at present. The room has an old TV (I believe it is over 10 years) it was a basic TV. With a 4 start hotel I was expecting the room to have at least a smart TV. Room service is extremely poor. I appreciate English may not be their first language but they should understand a simple order.

    My husband and I loved the hotel room we had we were on the top 7th floor and had a balcony. The staff was so friendly and sweet. Breakfast is great, same with the room service food is delicious. They made sure we were taken care of, we would shop around the hotel and drop off our bags to the receptionist and they would have it dropped off to our room! The location was great close to all the tourist spots we took the tram/train/subway to Grand Bazaar which was just 2 stops away from the hotel! If we ever go back to visit we will definitely be staying at this hotel again!

    Beautiful hotel and friendly staff

    The hotel was beautiful and the staff is the friendliest hotel staff I have ever met. The only downside to the whole stay was the breakfast was usually cold, and the fruit I received the first day was well past its prime.

    I enjoyed my stay at Amethyst and highly recommend. Staff was very kind and attentive. Facilities were clean although spa services, etc. were of course closed due to Covid-19

  • 2.0.Poor

    I booked my room for two people. When the second person, my friend, showed up later that day the manager harassed her and embarrassed both of us. The manager yelled at us I’m Turkish but finally allowed her to come with me. She left later in the day because she did not want to stay there. The next day I had brought another friend over just for a brief stop to pick something up and the manager came to my room and demanded she leave or demanded I purchase a second room for her. He made so much of a scene yelling at me in the hallway I left in the morning two days earlier than I was supposed to. I’ve never been to a place where the manager micromanaged the guests? It is clear this place is a total garbage, the bed stinks and the manager is rude and disrespectful. It is a run down hotel in a bad part of town. Any reviews that are a 5 stars is obviously done by their own staff. Nobody would 5 star this place.
