It's long (for an Amsterdam street), so Herengracht 1 will give you a different atmosphere than Herengracht 627, but it is pretty much prime location from end to end.

As mentioned above the Herengracht is quite long so unless you can specify the street number can't give you a lot of details. If you look at Google Maps you will see it is very central and near the main attractions/restaurants.

I just noticed we have another clue: postcode "1015 BR" is Herengracht 66-80.

It's a great location.

Herengracht is Dutch for Gentleman's Canal. It was built to house the city's rich merchants in the Golden Age of the cities prosperity.

It's some of the best real estate in the city , a bit like living in the upper east side of Manhattan. Does that answer your question?.

Very close with a beautiful view of the canal:

Closer yet with an Indonesian flair - top rated:

In my mind (and many on here will disagree) Amsterdam's top "must see" restaurant - many will say it is too touristy and there certainly are restaurants with better food, but still................

Typical Dutch, unique, a little more "down market", also near:

Last November we stayed in a B&B at Herengracht 21 and it was a perfect location for us and a very pleasant area.
