A little Gem of a Hotelfrom LilBeethoven
Breakfast was a good and varied continental buffet, but for the last day we decided on a full fat option and went along to the Irish bar at the end of the road. If you want a slightly different meal experience then I would suggest the evening canal cruise with meal. Its about 40quid each, but you get a 2 hour trip, 3 course meal and as much beer or wine as you can drink in the time. Excellent value and the food was surprisingly good, the best we had in fact.
Amsterdam is a beautiful city with lots to see and do and the people are really friendly. I was pleasantly surprised
Good for city breakfrom Bizness Travel
Hotel was clean, modern and the staff were very welcoming and helpful with advice and information for our excursions, which could be booked from the front desk.
We were in a deluxe room in the new wing overlooking the rear courtyard, delightfully landscaped with chairs and tables. Room was well equipped, light airy and modern - pity there were no tea & coffee making facilities in the room.
We were on the second floor, but there was noise from doors slamming at night, particularly midnight onwards.
Breakfast was a very pleasant, buffet style experience.
Thoroughly recommend to anyone.

The staff were friendly, polite and helpful and the place was clean as were the rooms - nice white linen and a bright, clean, modern bathroom. The hotel is also located right next to Vondel Park, great for strolling around and watching the locals run, jog and walk their dogs (sometimes at the same time!).
I would definately go back here when next visiting Amsterdam.
Great Hotelfrom mightywease
We arrived at midnight on a snowy evening in March, having been delayed for five hours on our journey, to find a friendly, comfortable warm and inviting hotel.
First impressions were of a stylish reception/lounge/bar area. Wooden floors, subtle decor in cream, white and a sort of grey/khaki colour. Leather sofas, a raised bar (open until 1.00am, a blissful discovery for two thirsty travellers who arrived at midnight!) area and extra decoration provided by the displays of white tulips dotted around the place. Sublime!
The room itself was small but, like the rest of the hotel, simply and stylishly decorated. The bed was incredibly comfortable with just the sort of softness you wanted to ease weary feet and legs after strolling round the city.
Breakfast is continental – breads, cheeses, meat, eggs, cereals – but very tasty and served in an attractive breakfast room just slightly below street level. Sit in the window and you can watch the bottom of people’s legs – and the whole of small dogs – walk past!
The location is great, on a quiet residential street with a park opposite. Okay so you are not particularly in the centre of things – it is a fair hike or a 15-minute tram ride to Dam Square and Centraal Station – however you are just round the corner from the Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum, a short-ish walk across Singelgracht to the Leidseplein and very close to Vondelpark. It is blissfully quiet – another aid to a good night’s sleep – although occasionally we could hear latecomers or early risers heading up and down the wooden stairs in the hotel.
As for the staff, well, they were great. Friendly, helpful, efficient and another credit to the hotel.
You’ll probably have guessed that I rather enjoyed our stay at Piet Hein! I did and I would certainly go back. Very, very recommended
s Eggfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Having said all that, the room itself was spotless. There were always fresh towels, mainly because used towels wouldn't dry in the bathroom, but they were large and fluffy and welcome. The bedlinen was all white cotton, which was a joy, and the TV was a decent size for moments when the kids needed to chill out. The staff weren't particularly friendly but they were fantastically efficient and the common part downstairs was very pretty and had everything from a bar to internet access. The hotel is right by the museums and walking distance of everywhere, though we got trams to save time. Ultimately the good outweighed the bad, really it did, and I'd recommend the hotel, but three nights in a small space with fag smells in the air was enough.
Lovely hotel, brilliant location A+++++from A TripAdvisor Member
The location of the hotel is perfect. On a map it seems a bit out of the way but in actuality the hotel is only 10 minutes from the rijksmuseum and van gogh museum and 5 minutes from the Leidsplein. This was especially good as the the Leidsplein seems to be the centre for eating out - plenty of fantastic restaurants to choose from, all with outdoor seating for summer. Just down from the Leidsplein is the waterbus stop which gets you to all the tourist attractions in the most scenic (although most expensive) way, and there are also plenty of tram stops. Behind the hotel is the most fashionable shopping street, and in front is vondel park which holds open air concerts in summer.
The hotel itself was nicely decorated with a nautical theme. The rooms were fairly basic but comfotable and modern with tv and a/c. Breakfast was a simple continental buffet, with boiled eggs, cold meats, cereal, toast and a vending machine for tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc.. this we found delicious and more than adequate. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were cleaned daily.
All in all, excellent value for money and we would certainly stay there again.
Simply great, affordable, clean, friendly!from A TripAdvisor Member
This place was very clean, and although my room was small, i loved it. it had a nice view of the courtyard garden, and clean and modern bathroom and all the necessities.
I got a great rate on Expedia.com, and would most definitely stay at this wonderful hotel again.
It is about a mile walk from centraal station, hotel piet hein is located in a lovely and quiet neighborhood near vondel park. tram stops are very close, as are shopping.

Museums Definately vist the Van Gough and Rijkmuseum - even if you are not especially into art (like me) make sure you go some of the work is breathtaking !
The ORIENT restaurant Orient had excellent Indonesian food
rental cars most in city rental places close by 6pm , remember to get full insurance, parking is hard and very expensive 3.6 euro per hour in Amsterdam, car rentals get broken into all the time!!! we only found out about this when we left a $2000 camera ( in trunk out of view) in the car for 10 min. beware and be safe... the theives watch you and know which cars are rentals.
