Our tour group stayed here for 2 nights. Check-in and luggage service went smoothly. Meals were good although the breakfast buffet was a bit crowded. Room 306 was nice and large with modern furnishings. But there was almost no counter space in the bathroom for our toiletry items. Street noise was discernible. Wifi worked well. We really appreciated that the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights . It is very clean , good location and services. The only thing I must mention the room is very small but it is worth the money we paid on Orbitz . The breakfast is also included and actually more verity than expected

Not impressed with room or some of the staff or food or entertainment. Who wants to go to Turkey and listen to somebody signing on stage in Russian? If I wanted that, then I'd go to Russia. Anyone going to Istanbul, avoid using the taxis. They are a shower of cons by clocking their metres. Was charged €20 for going... More

Hotel needs mantenaince, towels and carpets are old (I got a pair with holes on it), stains on the carpet and sheets. Sleep quality is awful, first the noise of the street (people and cars) then parties and chants every now and then, even in the middle of the night. Restaurant food is not good. Staff is not very friendly,... More

Amethyst Hotel offers elegant rooms a 12-minute walk from Istanbul’s buzzing Grand Bazaar. It features an impressive indoor grotto pool and a spa with traditional hammam, sauna and massage treatments. Marmaray, the undersea rail tunnel, is within 150 metres. The food there is good and the service too. The rooms are comfortable and very nice. Also the hotel has a... More

We stayed here as part of a tour group. Your experience here will depend on the room you are allocated. Our room 204 at the beginning of our tour was very noisy. We could hear TV noise from neighbours on either side, the air con didn't work and having to open the window resulted in very loud street noise. At... More

I stayed at the Amethyst Hotel in Istanbul for four nights. It was a comfortable hotel with delicious full Turkish breakfasts each morning. Great location to sites, shops and the Grand Bazaar. Helpful folks at the desk.

The hotel had a very nice lobby. However, I found the rooms to be very small. I traveled with my girlfriend. There was no space to set up and live out of our luggage. Also the air conditioning didn't work very well even after reporting it for repair.. We did open a window at night to get some air but... More
