Stayed at the Piet Hein many years on a holiday in Amsterdam and enjoyed it, so decided to come back again on a recent holiday. Arrived early in the morning (had booked an extra night to guarantee the room on arrival). Receptionist was wonderful. Gave us four room keys and let us take a look at different rooms and then select the one we preferred!
We ended up taking a room on the upper floor overlooking Vondelpark. Was wonderful. You could open the windows in the morning to hear the birdlife in the park, or close them later in the evening when the crowds decend on the park for a night out. Windows are double glazed so you don't hear much at all when they're shut. Rooms also have blockout curtains to cut out the sun when you want to sleep.
While the bathroom is small, the shower was very good - great water pressure. Enough room in the room itself for all our cases and bags.
Breakfast in the ground floor dining room is a basic continental style breakfast. We stayed 4 nights - and the only minor criticism I'd have is it would be good to see a little bit of variety in what was offered every couple of days. You get bored of eating the same things for breakfast by day 4. But really only a very small room for improvement comment.
Best thing about Piet Hein of course, is the location. Directly opposite Vondelpark, a short 5 minute walk to the Museumplein (Van Gogh, Stedelijk, Rijksmuseum, Concertgebouw) and trams running at both ends of the street.
Would very happily stay at the Piet Hein on future trip. Great staff, good rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast. Everything you need for a short stay in Amsterdam.
