Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Piet Hein

A little Gem of a Hotel

from LilBeethoven
Recently returned from a weekend break at the Piet Hein. I'd booked based on the reports here and they were all spot on. This is a little gem of hotel. Very modern boutique style hotel, but small and friendly. The public areas are a real treat for such a small hotel. Some of the rooms are small, our friends had a top floor room with a half size wardrobe under the window!, but that’s European city centre hotels for you (we actually had a great room with a balcony overlooking the park). The location cannot be faulted. It’s a short walk from the hotel to all the museums, the canal bus, tram , restaurants and unfortunately the shops.

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 break

from Bizness Travel
Hotel Piet Hein is conveniently located in the museum quarter of the city, away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, overlooking the Vondelpark. Travel to the heart of the city is easy, either on foot, tram or canal bus.
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.

Becoming my favorite place to stay..........

from A TripAdvisor Member
I recently stay at Hotel Peit Hien with a friend. It was my second time I stayed here. We were greeted with smiles and welcomes. Even though we arrived early our check-in took about five minutes. As expected our room was clean and neat. We had twin beds this trip. I don't know why but the cover they use on the beds are soft and comfortable. And once your underneath them it's so warm and cozy. Nice clean bathroom with plenty of hot water in the shower. Room service was pretty quick. By the time we returned from our great included breakfast, the room was already made up. The hotel is right above Vondel Park. The park is great for a early morning or late night stroll. I feel this hotel is in a prime location. Your away from the city noise but yet close enough to get from a to b fairly easy by either hoofing it or taking the tram. I'm returning to Piet Hien again in May and I'm thinking about my next year trip as well. Departing took just long enough to place my keys on the counter.

clean, stylish and a good value

from SEH7
We were pleasantly surprised to find the Piet Hein -- a three star -- so well appointed. Furnishings and plumbing were modern and relatively new. The decorating was sleek and stylish. The small lobby and bar area were lively, service was good and the breakfast swell. Beds were comfortable, and the garden area is a delight. We also liked the location in a quiet residential area next to a large park but an easy walk to canals, shops, museums and restaurants. A cab ride from the Central Station cost under $20 and a trip to the airport by taxi was about $35. The only problem at the Piet Hein is noise. From our ground-level room we could hear doors slamming and people tromping up and down the stairs. Some carpeting of the stairways and brakes on the doors could turn this fine inn into a true Dutch treat.

Treat in Amsterdam

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Piet Hein with my boyfriend for 2 nights in March based on the user reviews posted on Trip Advisor and wasn't disappointed. This area of Amsterdam is great as it's out of the main hustle and bustle, near the museums and close enough to be able to hop on a tram and be in the heart of the action.

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 Hotel

from mightywease
What a wonderful hotel!

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

I visited with two children during the February half term 2005. At 150 euros a night we were disappointed to find a triple room was effectively a small twin with a third bed pushed into the corner. The bathroom was unventilated, and barely lit by a 40 watt bulb. It was cold and dank and malodorous after heavy use... Whenever we increased the heat in the room the hot air that came through smelled of cigarettes. Horror!!

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
Our family stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in July last year, and had a wonderful time.

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
I stayed here Feb. 18-21, 2005 and loved it. They were kind enough to allow me an early check-in, and the breakfast they serve (included!) was very yummy, especially when compared to hotel breakfasts i sampled in Paris/London later in my trip.

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.

Delightful confirmation of Reviews

from BarbaraJerusalem
Because of unexpected last minute trip changes, we turned up two days before we'd reserved our room. We were lucky and there was a cancellation, so we got the only empty room. The staff was friendly and helpful, even showing us how to trim the tulips we purchased at the nearby Flower Market. The location is excellent. The Rijks Museum and the Concert Hall are literally around the corner. We walked everywhere in the Center, and there are nearby tram stops so that we effortlessly kept appointments in the suburbs. The room was simple , comfortable, very clean, with a new, nicely appointed bathroom. We're already looking forward to going back.

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam

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.
