“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Clean, comfortable, modern, very friendly, helpful staff. Stayed 4 nights. Lovely breakfast room,plenty of food. Room had good balcony although view only of other houses etc. Very handy to trams and easy walking to lots of attractions. Lovely park right at the door. Local drycleaner does laundry at good price (reception helpful in this regards). Plenty of cafes etc within walking distance. Entry steps steep but staff were helpful.

Simple, but stylish, decor in the room. The room was basic, but comfortable, quiet and very clean.The lobby is very lovely and calm. The location next to Vondelpark and close to Leidesplein and Museumplein is excellent for sightseeing.

In room 246, there is a large hanging light fixture over the pillow end of the bed that a taller person might bump his/her head on.

Stayed for 2 nights in top floor. Bathroom spacious and clean, room itself on the small side, got a bit stuffy at times. The front reception and lounge area very well appointed however rooms and corridoors need a refit. Breakfast was good with a good choice. The location was great, right next to Vondel Park and restaurants. Quiet neighbourhood away from the bustle of other streets.

Stayed for three nights in a single room. Room was on the ground floor, no view to speak of. Room was small, though a good sized bathroom with bath. However, given its location, it is a good hotel when all you need is a place to sleep. Right next to the beautiful vondelpark and very close to the Van Gogh Museum area, it is a great spot to get to the main sites. Tram stop very close by to get you around including back to Central Train station. A short walk to shops and nice restaurants. Free wifi was of benefit. Staff were friendly and breakfast was very good.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Piet Hein hotel. The location, next to Vondelpark, is perfect for touring around the city. We walked to museums, restaurants, antique shops, upscale clothing stores, and the boarding point for a canal tour. The staff at the hotel are friendly and very helpful in providing recommendations. We began and ended every evening in the chic hotel bar where we enjoyed drinks and talking with Maarten the bartender. Our room was tastefully decorated with a sophisticated, modern feel. The bed was especially comfortable with soft pillows and plush linens. We will definitely stay at this hotel on our next visit to Amsterdam.

My husband, myself and my son stayed here for 2 nights last week. First impressions were good as the place looks very contemporary and modern.Husband and I had a double room and our son had a single room.Carpet on the stairs and landings very shabby. Our rooms were basic but adequate. The bed was very comfortable and clean and the bathroom was spotless with lovely white towels and red hot water. Some of the furniture was chipped in places and the net curtain at the window was very dirty.It's a pity that more attention to these small details hadn't been given as it would have made the room so much better.Our sons' room was quite small for a single but he was more than happy with it. The breakfast cost 15 euros extra each on top of the room price which added to the expense. I must say though that the breakfast was lovely and you could have as much to eat as you wanted. As well as bacon, egg and tomotoe there was the usual continental choices.Around the corner from the hotel there were many beautiful designer shops and it made my sons' day when he saw a famous footballer from England in the Burberry shop. The canals and museums and all nearby and you can stroll around the Vondel park opposite. I must say be aware of the bicycles in Amsterdam as according to the information there are 555000 in this city alone. They are absolutely everywhere.On the whole we found the Peit Hein to our liking and we would definitely stay here again..

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is my first review of a hotel in Amsterdam. We found the location ideal for cruising Amsterdam as it is very central to most of the sights. The room was small but quaint and served the purpose.... sleeping. We needed to open the windows a bit as the room was stuffy (No aircon). The breakfast was good & enough to charge the fuel cells for the start of the day. The service was very good and the staff were friendly and happy to assist. The price I feel was a bit high but then I don't know what you get for the price else where in Amsterdam. All up, we would return again purely for the location & friendly staff.
