              The staff was very friendly and efficient. They even helped me out tracing back my luggage which was lost by another hotel in cappadocia. The rooms are spacious and clean. The hotel is located near the tram, thus the old city is within reach. Loved it, good value for the price.

              Very nice and clean hotel, good location, helpful staff.

              A little bit noisy.

              My experience at this hotel was quite good. The room was really clean and the buffet breakfast was good. Hotel staff were friendly and services were very prompt. I would recommend this hotel to any visitor to Istanbul.

              Hotel chocolate should be included in the breakfast drinks!

              Nice hotel, with very helpfull stuf. The locatation is not the best in Istanbul, but if you want to stay in Sultanamet quart this hotel is ok. Also, I would like to appriciate the brekfast in the hotel.

              9.6

              Good location 30sec ftom the tram easy to access. Cetrally locsated but still quite. Variable and rich breakfast. Very good service. The emploees at the reception very friendly happy to help, good use of english. Friendly n helpful staff. Toustist information at the reception, shuttle service to different kind of destination.

              The spa facilities are open from 11am to 11pm, but it s free of charge only between 11pm to 5pm. By rule the staff at the spa centre leaves much earlier when there are no customers. At the hotel' s restaurant the prices they charge you for the drinks are different from those in the menu as the taxes are not included which is not even mentioned in the menu. This is unacceptable , so be careful!! Nevertheless the management of the restaurant and the spa center is independent from that of the hotel so it s not their responsibility.

              This area is considered dangerous in Istanbul and definitely not for walking around in the evening hours. People at breakfast are mainly cheap clothes resellers and very strange atmosphere overall. At the reception I was kindly reminded that I am in Turkey and not in Europe. It would be good to know that in advance!

              Room is clean and staff are good. الغرف نظيفة والفندق جديد

              room is too small to the limit that there is no place to pray, bouble bed is only 140cm, الغرفة صغيرة لدرجة انه من الصعب انك تحصل مكان في الغرفه للصلاه باتجاه القبلة

            • Single
              8.2

              It was a nice, cosy hotel. The room was clean but a bit small. The breakfast was very good. The location was a bit far from the main historical monuments, but tram stop was 50m. away from hotel, so it was very convenient. The greatest thing was that guests can use the hotel's indoor cave-pool for free and it was great!!!

            • Couple
              7.8

              Very well located ,100 meters from the tramway station Aksaray leading to all historic sites (Bazar,Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Topkapi,Bosphorus,Galata,Dolmabahçe Palace). The room was really clean and the buffet breakfast was good,except fresh orange juice not included ( 10 tl extra charge). Hotel staff were very friendly.

              We were at the 6th floor, a little bit noisy, people talking ( shouting !) very loud in the corridor. The spa facilities are open from 11am to 11pm, but it s free of charge only between 11pm to 5pm. (10 € for the pool,30 € for all the facilities)The access to the turkish bath (hammam) is not free, you have to pay for a massage at a very high price. The swimming pool was cold,what is unacceptable for an inside pool The management of the spa center seems to be independent from the hotel. You have to pay 10 TL for fresh orange juice at the breakfast. .By the way, you can have one in front of the hotel (Ordu Caddesi) at a very lower price. (2 ou 3 TL) We were charged 20 € on the bill vs the reservation we've made on Booked.net .That's not really fair

              9.6

              Good location, clean hotel, helpful staff. Stayed at the Junior suite which was nice. Tram stop 200 meters from the hotel, so easy acces to the other side of Bhosporus. Grand Bazaar, Topkapi, Hagia Sopia and Blue Mosque within walking distance. Has nice little spa.

            • Single
              8.8

              The Amethyst hotel has an amazing spa and wonderful cave-like swimmingpool. The massage package deals are really good. You can also use this spa even if you stay in another hotel. The location of the hotel is right near Aksaray tram station with great access to all sites. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are well designed, great large tv, and clean bathroom.

              Check your mini bar when you get to your room if nothing is missing. I had an unpleasant discussion while checking out about items missing from the mini-bar. They tried to charge me for stuff I did not use. Also when the hotel arranged a taxi for me back to the airport, the driver tried to cheat me by taking a detour and tried to charge me more money. He wanted 60 Turkish lira- which I did not pay! For your information a taxi from this hotel to Ataturk international Airport should cost no more than 40 Turkish lira, or at most 20 euro.This is also what the hotel receptionist told me.
