... comical, only because for the women it's strictly business and women trafficking is strictly off limits. There's tight regulations, with unions and all sorts. So you can have a laugh. We decided to catch a show along with another Contiki that happened to be in the area. We were in stitches as they dragged a few people up on stage and put on a show. After the show it was fairly late/early so we grabbed some chips to sober up. I think we can tick most of the boxes in ...
... say the least. Anything from guitars and gnomes to computer screens and buckets and spades adorn the various graves around!
Dinner was possibly the best food I have ever tasted from a small place in Jordaan called Daalder. If you get the chance I highly recommend it. The chef does meals from 3-6 courses, and you dont know what you will get!!! But trust me you will leave impressed by his creativity of flavours and textures.
... sure it was a different experience for me, but I think Carolyn has a past history I don't know about. On the way back to the hotel we made one last stop at "The Golden Bend" which was to be the top spot in which to photograph the canals. It was too dark when we arrived. After 34 hours without sleep, I couldn't wait to crawl into bed at 11 pm.
Oh yes, it rained twice today for a short period of time. We actually had a pretty sunny ...
Farewell to Eindhoven and off to Amsterdam, via a side trip to Den Haag to visit Madurodam (the Netherlands in miniature). If you are running short of time then madurodam is the place - all of the cool parts of the main towns in Holland built in miniature (1:25). Lots of interactive things for the kids - like cheese lifting, pumping ...
... We knew we needed to get to the P R parking garage in Bos Em Lommer on the west side of the city. We knew we needed to go up A10 and after parking catch the tram into the city center. Everything went smoothly until we went to catch our tram. We needed to go upstairs to the tram, but the elevator was out. We clunked up the stairs with our luggage in tow. Once up we noticed it was a plaza filled with tables selling a variety ...

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!
