“Recommendation”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days, from the very start of booking in the staff were extremely helpful. The room was spotless and the bed really comfortable, we were on the 5th floor and had a lovely view of the park, the museums were just around the corner and if you enjoy walking we could walk virtually everywhere if not trams, buses and boats were all near at hand. I would highly recommend this hotel. Excellent value for your money.

Room Tip: Higher floors at the front have a lovely view of the park

Hotel Piet Hein gets a star for very friendly service at the reception and another one for free Wi fi in the room.

Bathroom extraction fan cannot be turned off. It's not as loud as a jet engine... But it's pretty damn loud.

Room smelled of drains.

Opened window to hotel courtyard and a steady breeze of cigarette smoke came in...

I am writing this from the hotel. I am staying on my own in a superior double.

Would not stay here again. Even marketing itself as a cheaper alternative does not excuse the woeful quality.. I have 4 nights left. Ugh!

On my quick trip to Amsterdam this hotel was a great option, it was a reasonable price and location was super convenient to museums, the center, transport (trams lines 2&5 and bus 197 to/from the airport stops nearby) and the Vondelpark. The hotel is clean and well-maintained with a modern look. However, this doesn't correspond to a 'luxury' rating -- don't expect toiletries, robes or your choice of pillows. Do expect a very small bathroom, and fairly tight room, but decent beds (I had two twins pushed together that 'passed' for king size). The breakfast buffet was better than similarly-priced in other hotels I think. And the staff truly was helpful and friendly all-around.

This hotel has the most helpful and courteous staff. It is in a fabulous location. We wanted to go to all the wonderful museums and all were within walking distance. Our room was very comfortable. The lobby is great with a nice bar as well. We would definitely return.

We only stayed here for one night in December and we were not disappointed. Great rooms with views of Amsterdam (both the suburbs and the Vondelpark). The buffet breakfast was also delicous.The hotel was close to the Museum district and about 20 minutes from the city centre.

We stayed here in April for a few days to explore the city. The room we were given was on the lower floor. The room size was quite big, very basic but clean and we only had a tiny window so the light was quite poor. All in all an OK hotel room. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location was good (but quite a walk into the centre) with a park opposite the hotel.

I have stayed in the Piet Hein numerous times over the past year, and have never been disappointed.

The hotel is well located, in the Museum district, and alongside the Vondelpark. The rooms are well-appointed, if sometimes on the small side. As a tip, I would say ask for one of the rooms starting with "3", as these are the newest, although the rooms beginning with "2" are the quietest.

The staff are very friendly and breakfast is good, but starts at 7:30, a little late for some business trips! The bar and lounge are also good. Be aware that the hotel has no restaurant for lunch or evening meals; you can order a takeaway to be delivered, or use one of the local restaurants.

A big plus is that - unlike most hotels - the (very reasonable) price never varies with supply / demand. Rooms can also be cancelled with 24 hours notice at no penalty. That can be very useful.
