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
