This review is extremely overdue but defiantly needed.
Our return to the bulldog was not a let-down.
When we arrived we was greeted in such a warm and friendly fashion- (Always the case when i travel to the bulldog) Receptionist basically gave us a quick rundown (as we've stayed here numerous times) and then advised us that she would be calling for the taxi to come and pick us up to take us over to the apartment... can you say rock star service ;).. Considering it’s not that far away I think it’s a lovely touch especially when you have loads of suitcases and the most that you want to do is throw them down and start enjoying Amsterdam .
Location: Again the apartments where like a 10 minute walk to the red light district (but then me and the ladies like to walk fast don’t like to waste any smoking time ;) .
They have a café below and considering we have been coming to Amsterdam for so many years and only just discovered that the bulldog is quite a large chain we usually always stay in the hotel. Oh and they give you free coffee in the mornings if you are staying about in the apartments (bonus)
There are many shops, and bars and around oh and places to hire bikes.
Apartment: Lovely, Historic building – Old Amsterdam stairs the first time we saw them we did all let out a gasp but once you learn how to maneuverer them you will be fine (wouldn’t recommend this apartment for any one with real walking difficulties.
Huge living room, sofa’s massive flat screen TV. Huge table, and then a lovely dining room table that I think we only used to hold our alcohol.
The Bedrooms – two bedrooms up the stairs I think there where 3 beds in each room decent size too defiantly bigger than a single bed but smaller then a double.
Toilet and sink up stairs and a massive bathroom downstairs with walk in shower. (Lush)
Good sized kitchen…only thing that I would put down is there was no oven (we only discovered this after shopping up a storm (frozen food) and having to microwave pizza…
Cannot complain loved staying here will be returning – Also this side is better for travellers looking for a bit more peace and quiet.
