Hegra Hotel

Herengracht 269, Amsterdam, North Holland 1016 BJ, The Netherlands

Karin Engelbrecht

Hotel Hegra offers unpretentious accommodations with a great location on handsome Herengracht canal – all for a gentle price tag.

YOU SHOULD KNOW There is no elevator, but staff will help you get your luggage up the steep, narrow stairs.

room

Small rooms have simple beds with blue and white plaid bedspreads and basic furnishings with dated curtains and wallpaper. Rooms in front have a view of the Herengracht canal.

bathroom

The gray-tiled bathrooms are tiny but clean and contemporary, with curtained showers, hanging toilets and small washbasins, though very few amenities are provided and there’s little space for your own bathroom products.

lobby

Not much to speak of: a dated reception desk filled with brochures, maps, and magazines. The walls are covered in dated ratings from various booking sites.

dining

There is no on-site restaurant.

There’s a breakfast room where a basic, well-priced breakfast is served daily (not included).

LOCATION

Getting Around

Situated in the Western Canal District, this hotel gives you excellent access to the Canal Belt, Jordaan, and 9 Streets shopping district, and to the rest of the Old Center. There are also plenty of trams nearby to get you wherever else you need to go.

Restaurants

For some of the best pancakes at town, you can’t go wrong at Pancakes! (5-minute walk from hotel). Sustainable seafood specialist, The Seafood Bar (5-minute walk), offers smoked fish varieties from Volendam, delicately-battered fish and chips and four varieties of oyster. If it’s comfort food you’re after, La Perla Pizzeria (12-minute walk), is famed for its authentic wood-burning oven Pizza Margherita, and convivial vibe.

Bars

Drink in the authentic old “brown café” atmosphere at Café ‘t Molentje (2-minute walk), which has been around since the 1870s. Popular Café Gollem, a dark and cozy Belgian beer café with more than 200 bottled brews and 14 on tap, is only a 3-minute walk away.

WHY WE LIKE IT

We don’t really, but it’s cheap, clean and well-located, so there’s that.
