Thanks for the review. Glad the staff were there to help you out. I can imagine this wasn't their most fun evening at work !! Dorm life can be an adventure sometimes but usually ends with having a great story to tell :). Hopefully we will get to see you here again. More

First time in Amsterdam. My friends decided to stay over Bulldog and it was very good. Nice location near the canals, nice restaurants and the red light. Coffe shop in the groundfloor very good as well. Completely satisfied :)

I've stayed at 'The Bulldog' 3 times over the past few years and have never had any complaints whatsoever. The staff are lovely, and always go out of their way to ensure we have a great time. We stay in a private room and it's always clean and comfortable. The lounge is what really makes this place. It's a great... More

Free Breakfast, wonderful location, tight security and helpful staff, I had a wonderful time at Bulldog hotel! I had a dorm-styled room shared with 6 other lovely ladies! I would totally return next time when I visit Amsterdam!

There was five of us traveling to Amsterdam together so we rented an apartment that the Bulldog owns. We picked up the keys at the hostel reception and the apartment is located just above the Bulldog cafe. We were really pleased with the place. Clean, modern and just what we needed. There is a large kitchen/living room with large windows... More
