... to grasp how life in this specific place is, it gives you a unique insight you would otherwise never get. You see and experience their habits and customs first-hand.
One summer I was living with a family in Vienna as an au pair: one summer afternoon the children and I were playing at the beautifully decorated balcony in the middle of Vienna, aromas of freshly baked Sachter Torte and the mesmerizing sound of someone playing the violin drifted ...

So many beautiful buildings such different architecture than in Australia. Had an Argentinian mixed grill for dinner which was quite nice. There are lots of 'meat' restaurants in Amsterdam. Reminds me a little of Prague, though less ...

We packed our bags ready for Brussels tomorrow and headed out to the same place as our first night for our last meal. Again delicious. Amsterdam has been awesome, it's a great city. It seems truly unique, just the way of life and the acceptance of people as they are. I'd like to come back in the summer and see all the beautiful flowers, but maybe I'll get some bike riding practice in before we come next ...

we had a gorgeous afternoon tea and then made our way into Amsterdam city. We stayed at the mercure Amsterdam, not far from the airport. We made our way into the city, via tram and bought travel passes. During our stay we visited so many amazing places, including, the museum with the I Amsterdam sign, a night time dinner canal cruise, tulip flower market and museum, cheese ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Piet Hein Amsterdam
Just returned from a 5 day stint at the Hotel Piet Hein and I am anxious to return -- not only to Amsterdam but to the hotel itself. I enjoyed a most pleasant stay and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel's facilities, not to mention its location (across the street from Vondel park, a stone's throw from Museumplein and Leidseplein, and a short walk to Rembrandtplein). The accommodations were clean, modern, fashionable and quite comfortable, both physically and psychologically. The rooms are quintessential European (ie -- small), but such is life. They are utterly functional and come complete with all that you need. The complimentary breakfast each morning is a real treat (again, typically European but delicious!). The lobby is replete with flat screen monitors for web access, an array of white leather sofas for lounging and relaxing, a large bay window for viewing Vondel Park across the street, a bar with a most congenial bartender, Martin, a 42" flat screen monitor on the wall for watching television and plenty of reading material.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Hotel Piet Hein and neither of us could fault anything about the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and approachable and the rooms were exceptionally clean and well maintained. There were always fresh, clean towels in the bathroom when we arrived back in the evening and housekeeping kept the room looking spotless! The size of both the room and the en-suite was surprising; both were more than adiquate for two adults with plenty of baggage.
I stayed here in June 2004 as my base for a business conference and found the hotel to be more than acceptable. Whilst it was never a real quality hotel, I found it to be clean, quiet and good value for money when compared to other Amsterdam hotels.
I unfortunately only had the pleasure to stay there one night. After a long transatlantic flight, it was great to stay in a quiet hotel, in a quiet area just across the street from the park. It was very easy to find and the staff was so pleasant and eager to help. As much as I love the action of the city, it's nice to have a quiet place to place your weary head at the end of the day. I would not stay anywhere else!
My wife and I recently stayed at the Piet Hein for two nights and had an excellent time. A tram station is just a couple of blocks away making the city centre just minutes away. Many of the best museums are also just a couple of blocks away. The neighborhood seemed very safe even at night. I recommend sitting on a bench in Vondelpark (Across the street) and watching the interesting people walk by.
The Hotel Piet Hein, seems to have been recently redone. Fresh bathrooms, good sized, everything clean and bright. Rooms while small were what I have come to expect of European Hotels. Always be prepared that a single is indeed a single. (Twin bed)
I am 6'3 and had no problem with the extra long bed. Room was again not that big but the bright window at the end of the room made for a pleast experience.
Staff was effective, and Multilingual. In Fact spoke far better English than the hotels that I have been to in The UK. Breakfast was sufficient to get your day started with.
Close to the Major Museums.. and the Tram lines.
Americans with a Starbucks Caffiene habit be forewarned. None to be found in Amsterdam.
Hotel Piet Hein, is an excellent buy.
Very Pleased With this Hotel - Would Come Here Again!
My family and I were searching for a reasonably priced hotel in Amsterdam where all four of us could be in one room. We looked at Piet Hein's website and decided to take a gamble.
What a pleasure! Great location - across from Vondelpark, five minute walk to the museums and Leidseplein, around the corner from PC Hoofstraat, immaculate throughout, affable staff, nice hearty (free!) breakfast.
If you're looking for quiet, quality, and quaint, this is the place. We would visit here again in a heartbeat!
