    Comfortable Elegance near the Museums


    I have stayed here twice on the recommendation of my Dutch friend. I got a better deal the first time. It's not cheap, but it's perfectly located for museums & music and right next to Vondelpark.

    Rooms vary. The first time mine was teeny, but very elegant. The last time it was a very spare room under the eaves, but much bigger and very comfortable. Service is good. Breakfast is nice, but not always included. Desk is good. The lobby bar attracts a varied clientele, most very chic in an unfussy way.

  • great accommodations hotels in amsterdam


    This is a good traveling city in Amsterdam. It is a tourist destinations city.

    Unique Quality: This city is most historic, wealthy, influential, and most popular for its attractions, destinations, nightlife, and accommodation facilities like hotels.

    Extremely helpful nice pleasant staff
    Hotel was very near the Casino, got lost for 5 hours strolling the bridges and toured on foof most of the city
    Arrived during the Queens celebrations during May
    Everything was orange
    Huge celebrations and concerts
    Would recommend the 3 star hotel, nothing to write and say WOW but very pleasant

    Unique Quality: Most of if not all rooms have poor views but who cares, the life is outta the room, you definately don;t go to Holland to stay in a hotel room, even if its a 5 star

    Hotel Piet Hein


    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!

    Unique Quality: The lift - which you work yourself by pressing a button - is just great!

    Directions: Take the tram - Nos 2 or 5 to the Van Baerlestraat stop (near the Van Gogh museum) then it is a short walk from there.

    Good inexpensive hotel


    Stayed in a single room which was small but very inexpensive. Location was near Vondel Park near the museum. Breakfast was included and had a good variety. For the price, I would recommend this hotel.

    Unique Quality: Adequate facilities but inexpensive price

    Directions: Vondel Park area

    Great Little Hotel


    I stayed 5 days in a single superior room. The room was small by US standard but all you needed. The staff was real nice and the place was quiet. Its real close to the museums and Voldel-Park. I will stay there again when I return in June. I highly recomend this hotel.

    Unique Quality: Free breakfast!!

    Directions: Museum Quarter

Wonderful Vondelpark View

by Birsen about Piet Hein Hotel

The hotel is located in the center of the city. 5 min walk to museum plein. the tram stop is 2 min walk. The hotel is very modern, the staff is very helpful. The breakfast is great. The room had a park view with the balcony. (n:120) I highly recommend it. I connected my netbook with free wifi in our room. Also there was a safety box i kept the laptop and the valuables.

Also they are very prompt for answering e-mails.

Piet Hein Rocks

by A TripAdvisor Member

*"Hotel Piet Hein"", ------------- Great hotel with newly renovated rooms, crisp bedding, great air conditioning in deluxe rooms, elevator, nice breakfast and sparkling bathrooms. Very clean and neat, modern lounge with large screen computers and internet access. Location is fabulous - short walk to museums, Leidseplein and Vondel Park. The more expensive rooms are in a new annex in the back overlooking beautiful garden. Cheaper rooms are in the front older building - slightly less modern and sparkling (no air conditioning), but clean, comfortable and huge windows overlooking beautiful Vondel Park.

Nice hotel tucked away near the park

Good location

by TripAdvisor Member raggyann

This is a pleasant little hotel, friendly and very clean. The staff were friendly, polite and approachable.
The location is very good, quiet, but within walking distance
of the liveier parts of Amsterdam.
We didn't part-take of the breakfast (beds too comfy) so cannot
comment on this.
The deluxe room we had was kept very clean and, if a little on the small side, was adequate, but only had a very tiny window overlooking the windows of the other rooms. We got a good deal on the price of this hotel but I would have been disappointed with the room if we had paid full price!
The rooms also need tea and coffee making facilities.
The hotel can be a little noisy with doors slamming and noise from the uncarpeted stairs. Also the maids appeared to start their cleaning very early. Having said this, we would definitely return to Hotel Piet Hein.

A great find in Amsterdam

by A TripAdvisor Member

After searching for an Amsterdam hotel on the web, and seeing what others on Trip Advisor had to say, I chose Hotel Piet Hein for an early June stay and was not disappointed. The location is excellent - across a quiet street from the lovely Vondelpark, around the corner from the Van Gogh Museum & Rijksmuseum, a short tram ride away from anything else we wanted.

We booked online ahead of time and got a good deal - $206 CDN a night. I emailed separately to request a child's cot in the room for our toddler but they didn't receive the message. Nevertheless, the front desk instantly upgraded us to a room that could accomodate all three of us, and set up the cot right away with no fuss and plenty of smiles. The room was tastefully decorated, very clean, comfortable and quiet, too. The breakfast was more than we needed.

There's a supermarket a few blocks away, a canal cruise company three minutes walk away, and a bike rental place just past that. There's also some very high-end shopping the next street over (as the driver of our airport shuttle said, you'll need a credit card with no limits to shop there).

Our travel agent had recommended other hotels in the same price range, but they were all a bit rundown or out of the way. The Hotel Piet Hein is neither, and it made our short visit to Amsterdam very peaceful & comfortable. We highly recommending this hotel.

If you put the names of each hotel in a search engine you will find that two have them have there own website and a third you can get information about. The sites are quite informative.

In fact all 4 hotels have their own webpages; see below.
I think Estherea (central located) and Piet Hein (quiet) offers the most.
But you may have other preferences, so explore the websites.

Hotel Estherea. A great quiet canal location at a central spot; see:

Bellevue Hotel. Renovated and located at one of the busy entrance streets from the Central Station into town; see:

Hotel Zandbergen. A B&B Hotel in the lower Vondelpark area. A tram ride of 10 minutes brings you in the city center; see:

Hotel Piet Hein. Located at the East side of the upper Vondelpark area. Museums and Leidseplein at 10 minutes walking. Quiet location; see:

Enjoy your stay at Amsterdam,


RE: hotel


BANKS MANSION (4-5 star)is my personal favorite. All inclusive...(computer use, liquor,cable movies, FULL buffet breakfast, treats throughout the day) and it's nicely located. FAR better than the others with a similar rate.
