Amsterdam hotel rooms don't come any sleeker than the ones inside this ornate brick mansion redone in contemporary chic—they're all gleaming surfaces and sharply contrasting tones, stark black-and-white furnishings softened by natural wood accenting. For bursts of real color, simply look outside the windows, as front rooms have fine views of the Vondelpark (always in demand) and those in the back look out over the garden and terrace. The P. C. Hooftstraat, the Concertgebouw,
and major art museums are nearby.

We loved the Piet Hein! I wanted a room with a tub and my TC wanted breakfast included. We were very happy on both counts. The tub was long and deep and breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect for us. The lounge/bar area is comfortable and there is free internet access. On our last night I tripped on a nearby curb and injured my knee. The staff called a cab and I went to the ER. All ended OK. I mention this only to say the staff was helpful
and concerned. I loved Amsterdam and the Piet Hein.

We read rave reviews about this place and were very disappointed in what we got as a superior double room. Perhaps they were out of the best rooms and we had the bad luck of being assigned room 121. It did have hot water and heat and CNN. Otherwise, room 121 looks directly out at a brick wall (no trace of a green tree or any other foliage ANYWHERE from our room), the walls inside the room were painted dark brown, not a cozy, inviting place). The bathroom
was tiny, barely any room to move inside the shower, no bathtub. If you decide to stay here, make sure you ask for a view and stay away from room 121!

Having been to Amsterdam four times and counting, the Piet Hein is easily the best value in town for the $$. It reminds me of a boutique W hotel. The theme is nautical yet tasteful. The best rooms are those facing the park so make sure to ask for one of those. It's across from Vondelpark and a short stroll to the Leidseplein.
