Piet Hein is really nicely located on a canal next to the Vondelpark, a short walk from the Rijksmuseum, Heineken Museum, some fancy looking shops and an amazingly good fish restaurant. It's away from the tourist hell but within easy reach of the centre of the city.
The hotel's been recently refurbished in a sort of contemporary aspirational black-and-white style; the rooms are pretty small, but this is kind of normal for Amsterdam. My single bed was a good size. The staff are really sweet, relaxed and professional. There's good free internet and a nice comfy bar with big sofas.
Negatives: an unpleasant smell in the hallways (thankfully not in the rooms) where the carpets have not been part of the makeover, and the lovely breakfast room would be much improved by proper coffee and not just freeze dried from a machine (Amsterdam sets your coffee standards very high!).
I can't comment on value as my room was organised on my behalf.
Thanks Piet Hein people for a lovely stay!
