A friend of ours stayed here before and recommended it to us. We had a problem with another hotel (which we refused to stay at), and the staff at the Bulldog were able to accommodate us straight away with no hassle! The only apartment they had left was for 4 people (we were 5), they gave it to us for the normal price and when the manager heard about it, he personally dragged a mattress up to our room!
The apartment and the rest of the hotel were fantastically decorated (really funky), the bar / lounge were great for both chilling out and for heavier drinking-which ever you wanted. The staff were very friendly and helpfull, some of whom we are still in contact with!
The location is perfect, close to everything Amsterdam has to offer. It is situated in the red light district but is only at the edge and you wouldn't really notice it if you wanted it that way. There are apartments, and both private and shared dorm rooms. There are no children allowed in the Bulldog, for obvious reasons. Because of the smoking ban, cigarettes are not allowed to be smoked on the premises but everything else is!
When I go back to Amsterdam I WILL DEFFINATELY be staying here- I haven't stopped reccommending it to people sonce I got home.
