I stayed at the Hotel Piet Hein while attending a trade fair at the Amsterdam Rai. The hotel was well-placed for this as it is just a fifteen minute tram ride from the Rai. It is also really well located for those wanting to visit Amsterdam's many museums....walking distance from the Van Gogh, the newly refurbished Rijksmuseum, and the technology museum. The hotel faces directly onto the leafy Vodelpark. Although it is ten minutes away from the city centre itself the location is ideal for seeing the city. Like most hotels in Amsterdam it is not cheap for what it is. However it is well organised, the staff are friendly and courteous, and my room was very clean. Breakfast was not included in my room rate but it was well worth the fifteen euros. If you wanted to be picky you could point to the lack of tea/coffee in the room and soap dispensers in the shower room (no little bottles) Against that you have a decked garden area to sit in in the evening and a very good experience overall.

Room Tip: A few of the rooms must look on to the Vodelpark. Try asking for one of them.

I stayed for 4 nights in this charming little hotel right next to vondel park. It has a nice little bar area and a very friendly staff. the only warning i would give is to try avoid being in room 241 or 242. its right over the kitchen and close to the bar so the noise can be a little overbearing. That aside, i would strongly recommend this hotel for singles or couples.

A mixture of good/very good and not so good at this hotel, with positives outweighing the negatives. Three major positives: Location in upscale district in close vicinity to Concertgebouw and Rijksmuseum is superlative and could hardy be improved upon. Staff is attentive and helpful. Third, hotel is quiet at night - you will sleep well. Although this is a nice hotel, details of property management have not been attended to - for example, the carpet in the elevator is filthy and should have been cleaned or replaced (I pointed this out to them and was told, "We are aware of it" - well, golly gee, if you're aware of it...do something!). Rooms are sparsely decorated, and the little furniture in them is old and beaten up. Would these factors keep me away - no.

The hotel is very well located, near the major museum attractions, easy transportation access and also a supermaket nearby (be vareful, however, that this Albert Hein market has very strict rules for the use of foreign credit and debit cards, I was unable to use my Brazilian ones and have to pay chas all the time). Also, it is nearby the shopping streets (expensive ones nevertheless). The staff is always ready to help and very polite and nice, from the reception to the breakfast parlor. Breakfast was good, European standards, and my only complaint is that sometimes it took a while for refilling products (fruits and cheese) and you have to ask for it. Rooms are small, again European standard, but very comfortable, and cable TV has several options. The bathroom is kind of even smaller, and there is no box in it, only a curtain (at least in the room I stayed), so if you are taking a shower, the floor gets all wet and for wahing your hair it is even worse, so there is some kind of gymnastics required on our part (the hair dryer is great). I would definitely stay here again.

It's several time I stayed in Piet Hein Hotel, the reason is
1) location. The hotel is closed with Rijk museum, Van Gogh museum, concertgebouw, supermarket Albert Hein, just walk in front the hotel is Vondelpark, restaurant/cafe, Cornelis Houffman street which so many branded shop, and easy to get tram number 2; 5 to goes to central station.
2) Price. The price is logic .
3) Services. The hotel can give us early check-in, and up grade to higher room without charged.
4) Staff. The staff is friendly and helpful. And I know well the staff in receptionist, bar, breakfast room, and cleaning service. It's great because you're feel save like at home.
5) Room. The room is clean and minimalism modern, I like the decoration, even the room is small.
The bed is comfortable.
6) Breakfast. The breakfast is continental, simple but delicious. I like the scramble egg and bacon. And of course the cheese is good.

Room Tip: Try to ask vondelpark view.

Just returned from Piet Hein for a 3 day break. The hotel is next to Vondelpark, and at the end of the street you reach you can reach the main tram lines into the centre of Amsterdam. On arrival the staff warmly greeted us, and couldnt do enough to make our stay a good one. Contemporary styling, breakfast continental, but plenty of it for the hungriest of travellers. Room standard size, clean , free safe for valuables, bar and reception area welcoming. Hotel perfect location for van gogh, rijk , trams just around the corner, 5 min walk through vondelpark to hard rock cafe and blue boat canal stop. In quieter location, but totally accessible to the centre of amsterdam. Definitely would stay again and would recommend this little gem to anyone. Thank you again to the staff for their customer service.
