Hotel Ändra pays homage to the city’s Nordic heritage with Scandinavian design and hospitality, and while the brand may not be Danish, you’ll find plenty of hygge here. Warm and cozy to the core, this elegant boutique property is highly regarded for its cooking school, the Hot Stove Society. For ultimate coziness you’ll need your furbabies with you, so the Ändra welcomes up to two pets (up to 50 pounds) at no additional charge, and they’ll be greeted with bowls, mats and blankets in the room.
Newly renovated rooms are fashionable-mod

Modern Scandinavian style defines this 119-room luxury boutique hotel in Belltown. Ändra, which means “change” in Swedish, pays chic homage to the city’s Nordic connection while also nodding to elements of the Pacific Northwest. The classic building, which first opened as efficiency-minded apartments in 1926, is tucked between Belltown’s newer glass-tower arrivals on the less-touristy edge of Downtown. Ideally located for shopping, dining, and attractions, it’s also in the heart of a small foodie empire–several of celebrity chef Tom Douglas’ restaurants are right nearby, with Lola, a fan favorite, on the premises.
Voted #6 Best Hotel in Seattle
A lovely and modern boutique-style hotel, done up in a warm Scandinavian-chic decor. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed, with a good variety of sizes to choose from: small (but thoughtfully laid-out) studios up to spacious suites. Celebrity chef Tom Douglas owns the fantastic restaurant next door (which also provides the hotel room service), and attached cooking school. (You’ll get a 20% room discount if you book a class.) You can’t beat the location – the Andra is close to Pike Place Market, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.
A stylish Scandinavian aesthetic of wood, glass, and textiles in Nordic blues and oranges greets guests at this stylish downtown spot. It’s one of the best hotels in Seattle for foodies, home to both Lola, Seattle chef Tom Douglas’s acclaimed Greek restaurant, and the Hot Stove Society, Douglas’s cooking school.
Awarded the “Certificate of Excellence”
The word ändra in Swedish means “change,” and change is what Hotel Ändra is about. The building dates from 1926, but nearly everything in this trendsetting boutique hotel—furniture, fabrics, even bathroom fixtures—comes from Sweden or Scandinavia and reflects a sophisticated and richly textured European aesthetic. The neighborhood where it’s located is also undergoing change as Amazon and other corporate giants move their headquarters into the nearby South Lake Union area. The tone is set in the lobby with its distressed plank floors, thick wool carpets, stone-mantled fireplace, and a chic-casual bar on the mezzanine. The rooms have a warm, rich look augmented by soft alpaca-covered headboards, crisp white linens with striped chenille coverlets, patterned drapery, and minimalist wood furniture. All the rooms have walk-in closets, vanity areas, and small but well-designed bathrooms with green tiled showers with glass half-walls, sloping white sinks, grey slate flooring, lighted mirrors, fluffy Turkish towels, and FACE Stockholm bath products. The hotel’s fitness center is small and basic, as is the business center. The Ändra’s central location makes it easy to walk to all of Seattle’s downtown and waterfront attractions, shopping, and restaurants. Within a two-block area, foodies can dine at three Seattle super-chef Tom Douglas’s restaurants (Lola, Serious Pie, and Etta’s), all reviewed under “Where to Eat.”
Step into Hotel Andra and be transported from bustling downtown neighborhood to a warm urban environment. Ideally located in the epicenter of the city, on the seam of the Belltown and South Lake Union neighborhoods and the thriving retail core, Hotel Andra is perfectly situated for guests to engage in the quintessential Seattle experience. Originally built in 1926, this classic brick building was thoroughly recreated as Hotel Andra in 2004, and renovated again in 2010. The distressed plank floors of the hotel lobby contrast with minimalist design elements, combining Northwest materials with a Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic. The hotel is home to Tom Douglas’ Lola restaurant. One of Seattle’s finest, the restaurant specializes in fusing Greek-style cooking with fresh Northwest produce. Assaggio Ristorante, featuring authentic Italian cuisine, is also on-site and features a wine list awarded Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence.”
