Great hotel!!
We had a Deluxe Queen room which was huge. The air conditioning worked well. The bed was very comfortable & the bathroom fantastic. The staff were all very friendly & helpful. Location very close to the tram & not far to the train station. The breakfast had a lot of choice & was very tasty. We moved to this hotel after being let down by a nearby hotel but The Amethyst Hotel made us feel welcome & exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend.

2/10 Poor

i liked the ambience, breakfast was great, maid service was good, response to my request was good. Receptionist was rude, ordered me to sit down while pointing to a chair when i was registering the first day, i was told she travel takes euros only for tours, when they take lira, euros, dollars and credit card. i wanted to use credit card i was denied. had to pay 400 liras to buy euros. had problems with a/c, was not cooling the room, had problem connecting to internet, while making outside call to she travel, call was not going thru, after several attempts i called and the tech told me that i do not need to dial 212 suffix. i was charged for all those calls. receptionist should have told me that when he gave me the brochure. i did not have cash for tours, i was told to go to ATM and take money out, i asked where ATM was, receptionist was impatient and told me outside, go out and there are several ATMs. Went to several ATMs and banks as far as spice bazaar, did not get help from anybody. receptionist demanded in an impatient tone why i did not go to ATM like other people and take money out. i told him about my experience. He asked how can that be. he did not believe me. He had raised his voice, I was told that i had called too many times for one thing or the other from my room. could not use the hand held shower the first day, help had to pull the button real hard to make the handheld shower to work. locker was tempered with, my code did not work. my things were unsafe.
