This hotel is in a perfect location if you are interested in the three major museums nearby, some very good restaurants(Vlaamsch Broodhuys,Restaurant Bark,The Seafood Bar)AND, IF you want high end shopping this is available nearby. We had a twin advantage deluxe room with shower. Our only issues in the 3 days of our stay were the shower drain was too slow and on ONE occasion we had a heavy smoke odour infiltrate our room late in the evening and again early the next morning. We believe this was from another guest room where it appears the no smoking ruke was being ignored. we alerted hotel staff who say the were unable to find the source.

Good located 3-star hotel. This hotel is good for travellers and business visitors. Hotel Piet Hein is a good hotel overall. However here come a couple of weakness of it. First, I felt cold at night because of its window. Acturally, because of its window frames. The window can not stop any draught owing to its coarseness. And the room was not air-conditioned. You may have some problem if you stay here in mid-summer or winter. Nevertheless, the hotel staffs are very kind and speak English very well, and their service is very good.

Piet Hein hotel is a nice, modern hotel in a quiet area across from Vondel park and close to the museums. The location is excellent, it didn't take very long to get there on the tram from Central station, and it wasn't far up to Liedesplein to all the restaurants etc. I booked a single room (to save costs) and it was small, but it was well laid out so it didn't feel too bad. My room overlooked the garden/courtyard at the back of the hotel. The furnishings & decor was clean / modern. Breakfast was good, if you can, wait for the croissants and rolls, fresh & warm from the oven. (Not too many open cafes nearby early in the morning, so you may as well eat in the hotel) There are a few internet PC's in the lobby, never a problem if you wanted to check your emails

Overall quality is quite good, although size of the room I stayed in was disappointing. In my previous visit, I was given a much bigger double room at the same rate with a bed that makes one feel like in heaven. This time even the bed was mediocre, no toiletries in the bathroom and no minibar in the room, which are definite minuses in my otherwise very positive opinion for Piet Hein.

Excellent choice for the price. Location is very good, close to the trams. 5 minute walk to Leidseplein. Clean, neat surroundings. Located in a fairly quiet area. Room was small, but that seems to be the norm in Europe. It was clean and comfortable. No issues at all. My room was on the 4th floor, so it was very quiet. Bathroom was clean. Given the price, the room met my expectations. Hotel amenities were excellent. No complaints. There are a couple of computers in the lobby with free and fast Internet access. Overall, I was very satisfied with the place and would definitely consider staying here again. It's a great value for money, and very comfortable.

Very nice and cozy hotel located in quiet street along wondeful Vondelpark with short walking distance to everything (museums, canal boats/bus, shopping and restaurants/bars). Very chic & elegant interior with nice breakfast room and a wonderful quiet outside garden where one could enjoy breakfast. The breakfast buffet was nice and the coffee excellent! Internet access was nice in the lobby area next to a charming small bar with very good drinks....try the campari w/fresh orange juice! Helpfull and service minded staff, only minor complaint: had ordered wine/fruit basket in the room upon arrival (surprise for my housband) but no such basket when we arrived. We used Connexxion bus from airport to hotel entrance (13 Euro/person one way) and taxi from hotel to airport (37 Euro). Charming town and we'll definitely use this hotel again for our next Amsterdam trip!

I stayed in a single room, that was the size of a cupboard. However, it was very recently renovated and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very modern and appliances brand new. Some rooms are in the basement and are not great - there's not much air circulation and smoke from the lounge filters in at night, which is a problem. It is impossible to leave the window open on the ground level for safety reasons. The upstairs rooms are wonderful with very high ceilings, fresh air, flat screen TVs and brand new bathrooms. There are a bunch of computers in the lounge with high speed internet that are for everyone to use. Hotel is on a very quiet side street next to a park, which I heard could be a safety concern, otherwise the location is excellent. It is within a 2 minute walk from the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum. The nearest tram stop is a 2 minute walk away and it would take about 30 min to walk to the Centraal Station (10 minutes by tram).

good location, next to Vondel Park, close to Leidse Plein (5min) and Museums (10min to Van Gogh). Red light district about 30 minutes walk. As with most other hotels in the centre of Amsterdam, there is no parking which adds another 20-30 euro per day. nice lounge, straight forward staff, comfortable room like on the picture, not too large.

Great hotel, particularly for the price. Nice rooms, good location fairly close to Leidsplien. The only minor negative points we found were that the room was very cold when we had been gone for the whole day. When we questioned this we were told that the Heating "switches off automatically". Not really a great answer when its cold outside! The other point was that we got drinks from the bar and brought them to the room, but the empties were left in the room for a few days. HOWEVER - these were minor things and we found the hotel to be great overall, and would definitely return.

The Piet Hein was a wonderful place to stay. The breakfast was bountiful and the service at the small and cozy hotel bar was excellent. The rooms were small (by American standards) but more than adequate. The wireless internet to the rooms could be improved but there were ample stations for use otherwise. The location was right around the corner from the Van Gough Museum and just a few minutes ride from the central station. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay, the property is beautiful, much more welcoming than a major chain hotel. The staff were friendly and they had a lovely bar/lounge area where you could access the internet which is very handy when you are traveling. It was a little noisy, and unfortunately there was a fire drill in the middle of the night that woke us up.....this was apparently due to one of the guests smoking in their room. Whilst I understand that there is not alot the hotel can do about it, I think it would be a good idea to offer your guests a complimentary drink or breakfast where a major disruption occurs (fire trucks turned up etc). Appart from that, the hotel is in a fantastic location, the staff are friendly, the ammenities good and I would stay there again.

The apt. was so clean you could eat off of the floor. There were only a few problems: the Apt. was 6 floors up without an elevator and we had 3 large suitcases to carry up and down. The table was too small for 4 people and the master bed matress was a little old and soft. Other then that the cooking facilities were great and we saved a lot of money making breakfast and dinner there. The U-bahn station was only a block away as was the grocery store. I would recommend this apt. to a couple or small family since there is only one small real bedroom and some mattresses for the livingroom floor. The decor was so modern and cute!

We arrived at Amsterdam 7am and the hotel was so kind to have offered an early check-in. So we can take a quick nap and shower before heading out (as the flight from HK to Ams was over 10 hours). The free Wi-Fi connection at the hotel lobby was excellent, really at no cost. If the access can also be made to the rooms, that would be fantastic. (cos we failed to do it in the room upstairs, guess the hotel blocked the access to rooms). The lift was small, but big enough to fit in two large suitcases and the two of us. We had the room with a little terrace, so that's cool! The receptionists are nice and speak good english and are helpful. The beer at the lobby lounge was cheap and fresh. Though the room was small, it was already better that what I thought. The neighborhood was great, right besides Vondel Park, quiet but clost to the high-fashion shopping street. The only improvement would be the light. The room was kind of dark even with all the lights on. The Bagel cafe, "Bagel & Beans", nearby was a GREAT place for fresh hot breakfast. And the over-100-year-old restaurant besides the opera house, "Keyners" (something like that,) serves proper and great dishes. It's also near the hotel. Also have a lunch at the "American Cafe". Take the "Connexxion" shuttle bus from the airport and it'll take you to the door of Piet Hein. I would definitely stay at Piet Hein for my next visit.

We had a lovely stay and the hotel and staff were very welcoming and helpful in all aspects of our stay. The room was very clean. The only comment we had was that we arrived in Amsterdam during a heatwave (for real) and our room was one of the older ones and did not have air conditioning which would have helped. The location was also terrific, away from crazy city centre. We would definately stay there again and refer our friends. Wireless connectivity only available in the lobby and the newer rooms so make sure you ask for a wireless room if that is important to you.

It is hard to find any fault with this hotel. The location is very good with excellent tram services at each end of Vossiestraat. Breakfast is good value @ 10 Euros & train fare from Schipol to Central Station is only about 7 Euros return. We took a taxi from Central Station to hotel for 15 Euros but you can get a tram. We would use this hotel again and Amsterdam is a lovely city.

The location is excellent with museums, shops, and the park immediately available. The bar was delightful and the staff as well. Our room, facing the courtyard, was quiet and well appointed and just large enough for the two of us.

Excellent location, very close to all the Museums and right beside Vondelpark. Rooms small but spotlessly clean, staff friendly & efficient. Very enjoyable stay.

We enjoyed three, peaceful nights in a room with large windows framing the tall trees of Vondelpark. Transportation is easy, and the hotel is located within walking distance of Leidseplein and the museum district. We highly recommend Hotel Piet Hein for its value, location, and comfort.

Loved the lOCATION-just in front of Voldenpark, close to the Museumplein and walking distance to Leidseplein (sp?)-. The DECORATION was exactly as pictured in the photos: really cool little lobby... EMPLOYEES were very professional, helping me to FedEx some presents and to find a decent hairdresser in the area; and the PRICE was excellent for this boutique hotel. Def. will be back!

An excellent hotel in a good location(museum quarter). We were very pleasantly surprised by its newness, ambience and quality and the staff were very friendly. The garden floor room we had was only marred by the sound of footsteps on the staircase from about 6.30 onwards; it would not stop us returning. The non-tourist restaurant recommended was so good we ate there each night.

Nice stay, very comfy and peaceful. Staff helped us with everything; I love that spot, just behind Vodelpark and so close to Leidsplein. They also let us leave the luggage and use the rest room several hours after the check out. The internet in the hall is fast but not cheap at all though, just like the bar. I really recommend the hotel, but be aware that there's a 15% tourist tax to add to the overall price and the breakfast is not included.

Exelent small hotel, with a friendly and personal staff. Perfect location. Everthing is within walking distance, but if one get tired of walking, the tram is easily available. We chose the hotel based on exelent reviews and did not regret it. Perfect for me and my girlfriend.

Highly recommended! This hotel has been refurbished to a high standard with a lovely, modern, calm feel - the lounge/bar/foyer is particularly beautiful. The only thing I would suggest was poor is the breakfast, fine if it is included in your price but I would avoid paying the 10 euros for it separately - a very expensive bowl of cornflakes + toast! There is a huge choice of restaurants within a short walking distance and access to the canals just a few minutes away.

Hi, We actually enjoyed our stay at Piet Hein and would consider staying there again. However, we would have received a better deal if we had booked directly through the hotel's web site. Our room faced Vondel Park which was quite noisy, even late at night.

Obwohl ich eine Reservierungsbestätigung seitens venere zur Hand hatte, war leider im Hotel kein Zimmer reserviert. Außerdem war das Hotel ausgebucht. Durch einen glücklichen Zufall erhielten wir jedoch dann doch ein Zimmer, da eine Gruppe eines weniger benötigte.

Good location, lovely hotel, great value, but our visit was marred by a few problems: - tram running right outside our window was very loud--kept me awake - housekeeper walked into room while we were inside and violated our privacy. She knocked first, but didn't hear us yell that we were inside. - we asked for a wake-up call which never came. Room did not have alarm clock, so we woke up late and almost missed our train.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Excellent boutique style hotel. Freindly and helpful staff and a great location in a quiet road but just 5 mins to the canal boats,museums,bars and shops. I would recommend this hotel highly. Only negative was the 2 loft rooms do not have wardrobes.(our freinds stayed in one of them)

Luckily, we got a great rate on the room. It is a very nice hotel and it is located blocks from the Heineken brewery and tram connections. The staff was very courteous and spoke very good English. Also, the included breakfast had great variety for a European breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel when visiting A-Dam - I'll definitely try to stay there again next time!

This hotel is well priced for Amsterdam, and in a good part of town. Rooms are not luxurious, but are tidy and clean. Is just a little outside the main centre, but only a 2 minute tram ride or a 15 minute walk. Plenty of choice of restaurants nearby as well.

Only good feelings about this hotel (Sorry, i can't write in english very well). Hotel Piet Hein is located in the Musea area. Walking, you are in Leidseplein in 5 minutes. There are tram stops close to the hotel. So, it is not located in the center, but very close to it. We moved by feet almost every day. The surroundings are very quiet. Our room was small, but clean and pretty. Just the views were not too good: a brick wall in front of our window. But that didn't bother us too much. The room was next to the reception desk, but there were no noises. We were there in february, for three nights, and the heating was 24 h on. The staff was very kind. The lamp on the ceiling went off one morning, and it was repaired that same day. Breakfast was included in the price. The breakfast room was really nice, and breakfast itself (self-service) was really good. Price was a little too expensive (85 EUR) but not for Amsterdam: hotel prices in Amsterdam are really in the top side.

The hotel is ideal for both personal and business breaks. Obviously as such there is a mix of clientel attracted to the hotel. This seemed to keep the atmosphere and behavior of the staff relaxed and yet very professional. They did not force themselves upon you however were more than happy t help in any way they could. The rooms were spacious, clean and modern with good shower and bath. the location is on a quiet street overlooking the vondel park and distance to rijkmuseum and the the van Gogh museum being about 500metres. there is a tram very nearby however the centre of Amsterdam is walkable.
