“Good location and price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Hotel Hegra is reasonably priced hotel in a great location off the Herengracht canal. It is walking distance to many attractions although I recommend renting a bike. This is not a high rise modern building so do not expect elevators or many amenities. The stairwells a tight but you truly get the feeling of Amsterdam staying at the Hotel Hegra. They do provide free wifi and offer breakfast for additional costs. Overall the room was clean and the bathroom (all be it small) had good water pressure and a hair dryer. We happen to stay in a quad room with 3 people which provided a nice amount of space. I would stay at Hotel Hegra again but would not recommend this hotel for anyone who has trouble with stairs or wants to be in the hussle of Amsterdam.

We found Hotel Hegra to offer the most reasonable price for a 3 night trip in the beginning of August. Reviews mentioned the tight stairwell, but otherwise seemed favorable, so we made the leap of faith. A pleasant surprise! The hotel is located along Herengracht canal, fairly centrally located and close to a lot of great cafes and shops. The stairwells are very tight and steep (you may have trouble if you have a large, heavy bag), but all the old buildings are like that in Amsterdam. We had a quad on the 3rd floor in the back which was clean and basic. The shower had good water pressure and although very small, water did not make a mess everywhere. We had unseasonably warm weather, so the room did get hot, but we otherwise found it to be rather quiet (even with the windows wide open) despite the review otherwise. I would stay here again as it is very convenient and quiet. Paolo on staff was quite helpful in pointing out sights on a street map and providing directions. We did not take part in the breakfast downstairs.

lots of steep stairs though. Very clean and on a quiet canal. walking distance to nearly all main attractions. But the rooms are small, and those stairs are steep with no elevator. resident cat. good value continental breakfast

Room Tip: spring for the canal room on the 2nd floor

Reasonably priced hotel, good location. Lethal stairs but that's common for Amsterdam. Breakfast was served in the bedrooms daily. Friendly staff and overall good stay. Would send go back of staying in Amsterdam again

If you can't climb very steep and narrow stairs while dragging your suitcase this place is not for you. Good location but very small rooms and very noisy. There is no elevator so if you are in anyway physically challenged don't come here. Room is about 8 feet across and is the smallest we have been in in Europe.

Hotel Hegra is well situated on the Herengracht Canal, within a 10-minute walk of the Anne Frank House and a 30-minute walk of the Rijksmuseum. Its amenities are very basic. The people who operate the hotel are less than friendly and minimally helpful. There are several similarly situated, small hotels within a few blocks of Hotel Hegra. If you want to stay in this nice and quiet neighborhood, suggest you consider the nearby alternatives.
