Best Hotels in Cebu: An Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu Review

Doing another hotel review and this time I got to spend the weekend at Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu!

I have been doing several reviews for this site but this is the first time I am reviewing a Cebu based establishment. For those of you who are unaware, I Erik the Hungry Traveller am a resident of Cebu City Philippines. Thus I got extremely excited when I was allowed to stay at Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu!

My goal is to do more features on tourism spots and establishments in Cebu since there are definitely a lot of places to visit on the island of Cebu.  

We will be reviewing and rating Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu on 4 Categories on a 5 point scale rating. Specifically on: 

  1.  Location
  2. Amenities 
  3. Room Cleanliness and Functionality
  4. Service

Location of Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu

The Hungry Traveller Club Endorsed Rating

Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu is located along a quiet corner of uptown Cebu City.
For my Cebuano readers, this means that Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu is smack right in the center of the metropolis which is convenient and easy to find location.

Specifically, Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu is right beside the iconic Cebu Provincial Capitol. A national historic landmark and considered to be one of the oldest and most beautiful structures of its kind.Close by are famous landmarks and attractions like the Fuente Osmena Circle, Colon Street, old Spanish churches, Magellan’s Cross, Carbon Market, Tabo-an Market, and Parian district.

For my fellow global travelers, the location of Amethyst Boutique hotel Cebu is a gateway to scenic attractions if you plan on visiting the Southern part of Cebu. Where popular tourist attractions like the Canyoneering adventure, Kawasan Falls, Oslob Whale watching, and white sand beaches are found.

Best Hotels in Cebu: The Hotel Amenities

The definition of amenities are elements of comfort and convenience, most often in reference to a house, vehicle, resort, or rental. An example of amenities are a hot tub and room service in a hotel. 

The Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu scent

FUN FACT : Amethyst is a purple stone consisting of a purple variety of quartz. It is said to be a natural stress reliever with healing properties that rid negative energy and encourage inner strength, wealth, and clarity of the mind.

As soon as you enter the lobby of Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu aside from the smiling security guard and the amiable front desk staff.

The scent seems to be a combination of Lavender, citrus and other scent that is very aromatic yet not too strong for those who may be allergic or sensitive to certain scents.

The scent combination is top secret thus I just went for how my nose perceived the scent.

The Hotel Ammenities

Being that it is a boutique hotel it only has the basic hotel ammenities. But as they say great things come in small packages!

The hotel makes up for what they lack in ammenties they make up for it with how they present their the whole vibe of the hotel. Whichever part of the hotel is a standout for me. 

They even have a mirror that has a built in light inside it for your hotel bathroom selfies. A unique find and somethin you wouldnt expect from a boutique hotel.

Room Cleanliness Functionality

The Hungry Traveller Club Endorsed Rating

Being a boutique hotel, Amethyst has 52 guestroom capacity. What the hotel lack in capacity they make up for it in room space by providing modern comfort for the contemporary traveler.

Unlike other hotels where it feels a tad cramped. The rooms in Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu are very spacious. Actually, I feel like I was not in a hotel but in a luxury condominium due to how spacious their rooms are.

They offer a room-specific for your needs. They have rooms for Travel Buddies, for groups, for family, and wait for it… for solo travelers.

Yes, you read it right they have rooms – affordable at that – for those traveling solo.
All their rooms also come with free breakfast. – We’ll talk about their in house restaurant in another blog post. But for a sneak peak this is what comprises their free breakfast when you book a room at the hotel.

Cebuano hospitality at its best. Their staff may not be perfect (heck no one is right?) but you can be assured that they do their optimum best to make your stay worthwhile.Checking in and out of the hotel was hassle-free. The staff attends to your needs right away.

I asked for a bucket of ice, a spoon, and glass during my stay (don’t ask what I need those for LOL) and they responded to my request immediately.
From the front desk to room service even their waiter and food attendants were all very courteous and eager to make your stay in the hotel a pleasant one.

Room Cleanliness and Functionality

The Newest Gem in Cebu City: 4/5 Star Rating!

As a frequent traveler, I always am very particular about my hotel accommodation.

By that I mean I would rather, spend a few extra bucks just to ensure that I am comfortable and safe in my hotel.

Occasionally I encounter hotels that are extremely valuable for your money. The – “I can’t believe I got this hotel deal” type of moment.

My Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu experience is on that list.

It has all the elements and potential of a 5-star establishment integrated into a boutique hotel. So for all of you who are interested in visiting Cebu – trust me it’s a must if you plan on visiting the Philippines.

Put on your radar Amethyst Boutique Hotel Cebu.

You can book a room through their website or contact them at [email protected] or visit their website at Or if you happen to be in Cebu give them a ring at (032) 260 9350. They are also in and other popular booking apps.
