“It was ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Stayed here for one night on my own in one of the single bedrooms. Like all hotels in the centre of Amsterdam, it is very overpriced, though compared to some of the others it appears reasonable. The location is nice - right next to Vondelpark and not far from Leidseplein and the museum district, a nice, up-market area.

The bedroom was very basic for my €99, just a single bed, small bathroom and fairly beaten-up wallpaper. However, it was pleasant enough, though breakfast wasn't included.

Overall there were no problems with the hotel, it just left no impression. If it's in your price range and in an area you like, then sure, stay there. If not, don't. Nothing else to say really.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this boutique hotel in April. Chic entrance and lobby. Small rooms but that was expected. Accommodating staff. Great location. Walking distance to night life and shopping.

Good location - we stayed for 3 nights in April 2013. We booked a deluxe room however the room was very small and the small safe was not attached to anything in the cupboard so you could just have walked out with it. The room had windows which you could open, the bed was comfortable and the reception staff friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Check out which room you will be in before you go.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

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.
