I took my (senior) mother for her first trip to Europe. I had booked us for a Tulip Time River Cruise for 9 days on Avalon Waterways. (that will not be reviewed here, other than let me say Hendrick, the cruise director we had made our experience first class.) We actually had two stays here. One for a couple days... More

Booked this hotel because the website looked very well. But in fact the hotel was too bad. The room was small en very sober with a tiny window facing a wall. Breakfast was nothing special. The hotel is claiming to be a trendy design hotel, but there is nothing trendy in the hotel! Especially the rooms are far from that.... More

Booked this hotel as a last minute deal for Queens Day. Good location, close enough to action yet reasonably quiet and my single room was very adequate with good design and nice bathroom. At 90euros per night it was the upper end of my budjet however I cant complain given I got it on2weeks notice when everywhere else was fully... More

Impressed by Tripadvisor reviews I decided for this hotel and made reservation for twin superior room. The room we got was not twin, but we were adviced by recepitionist to put beds apart by ourselves. Well, it was no spare place to move beds as the room was very very small attic room. Window was very small as well. Acctually... More

Although the hotel is a 10 min tram trip to the old centre, its in a really nice location just by the park and behind a very posh shopping street. We didnt mind having to jump on the tram but you will need to use a cab if your staying out late as the trams stop and I dont think... More

I honestly cannot say enough good things about this hotel. When I booked my room, I requested a room with a view overlooking the street. I was quite impressed that despite the hotel being very busy when I was there, they did meet my request. I arrived early for check-in by about about 40 mins and they informed me that... More

If you're in Amsterdam for a couple of days and want a GREAT location and don't mind a small room, this is the place. It is two blocks from the Rjiksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. I walked all over the city from the hotel. The staff are very helpful, particularly Martina. The breakfast is so so. Also the hotel is... More

I have just returned from my 7th visit to Amsterdam and my 3rd stay at Hotel Piet Hein. It has undergone a radical renovation and expansion since my last stay two years ago but the professionalism of staff, the cleanliness and the general welcoming ambience of the hotel has remained the same. I am already looking forward to my next... More

The Piet Hein is a hotel I would certainly like to stay at again. It is a very modern-style boutique hotel, very well presented, and reasonably priced. They bill themselves as a 3 star. In a sense they are because it is relatively basic in facilities (such as no minibars), yet the overall impression is of a higher caliber. Call... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
