We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Piet Hein and consider ourselves lucky not to have contracted some exotic disease. We stayed in room 247. What a shameful place. With no exaggeration for effect here is what we encountered. When we entered the room the dark blue carpet was covered in white bits. The room carpet remained this way our entire stay. Not once did the housekeeper vacuum the room. The hairdryer is held together by 2-inch wide scotch tape. The top of the hairdryer and toilet paper dispenser are covered in an 1/8 of an inch of dust. Disgusting ! The grout between the shower tiles is black/green with mould. Some water from the shower got on the bathroom floor. We wiped it up with a white towel that was black as the ace of spades afterwards. The floor probably hadn't been washed in years. The plastic drinking cups, which we didn't touch, were cracked. The Do Not Disturb / Clean The Room sign was torn and wouldn't stay on the door handle. It was never replaced. Within minutes of showering the bath tub fills with water 6 inches above your ankles. The shower head was broken making it almost impossible to shower properly. When we came to check out, the women at the front desk couldn't generate a receipt staying we had paid in full. We didn't leave until they gave us something handwritten and signed. OMG ! This place is a DUMP and should be closed down by city health inspectors.
P.S. For those of you who are driving. Every morning we came out onto the street several parked cars had been keyed overnight. On our second to last morning, besides the usual keyed cars, a van had its passenger side windows broken—shattered glass everywhere inside the vehicle and on the sidewalk.
