“Good feeling and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

Piet Hein has small but nice and very clean rooms. Also had some good service in late night when I arrived. The staff was also very friendly and proffessional. Great location with many choises of busses and trams. ..........................

I loved the location.is very close the all the main museums and the voldenpark.the hotel it self is very small yet is very cosy.its clean,warm and trendy.there is a bus service from the airport with a taxi costing only 16.5 euros which is ideal if you have lots of luggage or cant be bother using the public transport.ther are also several night life spots that are worth checking out

Piet Hein is really nicely located on a canal next to the Vondelpark, a short walk from the Rijksmuseum, Heineken Museum, some fancy looking shops and an amazingly good fish restaurant. It's away from the tourist hell but within easy reach of the centre of the city.

The hotel's been recently refurbished in a sort of contemporary aspirational black-and-white style; the rooms are pretty small, but this is kind of normal for Amsterdam. My single bed was a good size. The staff are really sweet, relaxed and professional. There's good free internet and a nice comfy bar with big sofas.

Negatives: an unpleasant smell in the hallways (thankfully not in the rooms) where the carpets have not been part of the makeover, and the lovely breakfast room would be much improved by proper coffee and not just freeze dried from a machine (Amsterdam sets your coffee standards very high!).

I can't comment on value as my room was organised on my behalf.
Thanks Piet Hein people for a lovely stay!

Bus 197 from Airport is the easisest way (20 min) to get to the Museumplein and then less than five minutes walking to the hotel.

Piet Hein is a rather small hotel with perfect location. Staff is extremely helpful, my double bed room was very cozy and "design"-hotel kind of a room beds were good (rather hard madrasses) and bathroom was small but very functional. Rooms are in good condition, everything works and hotel is very clean.

My room in third floor is silent with a window to inner yard. Road side rooms should not either be very noicy as the windows have double glass and the road heads to Vondelpark - not much cars.

Outdoor terrace area was not very posh as it was +5 Celsius and raining in October :(. Only negative point is that the elevator was broken when I came - that happens. :)

I stay four nights in the hotel and visit RAI (the fair centre) for two days - just an easy tram trip to take.

Stedelijk museum is my favourite museum, Van Gogh museum is good to and for all who visit The Netherlands first time it is essential to visit Rijks Museum (Rembrant Night Watch etc.) all these and Konsertgebouw are less than 10 minutes to walk from the hotel.

Excellent choice!

Nice hotel in a good location near museums, and only a short walk through the park from more livelier part of the city. The room we had was not large but fine for a few day's stay. Didn't try the breakfast for 15 euros however plenty of places to eat nearby for breakfast and any other meals. Staff friendly & helpful, would certainly use this again.

Room Tip: Rooms over the gardens are very quiet.

This is a very nice boutique hotel with a well trained, friendly staff. The rooms are clean and are air conditioned. Windows also open for fresh air. Valuables can be kept in the room safe. The rooms do not have a refrigerator, but the bartender was kind enough to keep a bottle of wine chilled for us. The hotel is a short walk to the Rijks Museum, the Van Gogh Museum and Vondel Park. The morning breakfast was excellent as well.

For a major trade show this year we decided to stay at a hotel that had more of a local feel and settled on the Piet Hein. The staff are lovely and attentive, especially the gentleman who mans the bar, and the rooms are efficient, clean, and cozy. The breakfast that is included and is excellent, and the decor has an inviting contemporary feel.
Overall, it had been a very nice stay and is a quick walk to the tran and local restaurants. We ate a few nights at Seafood Bar around the corner, and at Bicken down the street. Close by there are some excellent shops.

Room Tip: There are many different room sizes so be sure to ask about sq. footage and bed size or number.
