"Nice place, but I'm getting too old for this junk!" The Bulldog Hotel Tip by acemj

The Bulldog Hotel, Amsterdam: 861 reviews and 7 photos


They call themselves a "hotel," but this place is a hostel. I paid 19.80 Euros for a nice bed in a clean room, but the location on the edge of the Red Light District attracts a decidedly young, stoned and sex-craved group. I think I'm getting too old for that crap! Half the people in my room were so high, they never knew I was there or, for that matter, where they were.

I met a few people from Dublin that were fun to hang out with. Unfortunately, they were into smoking weed and I'm not, so we didn't hang out all that long after they headed to the coffee shops.

Unique Qualities: There's a restaurant and bar downstairs that serves food, beer and marijuana. Just don't bring it in the rooms. The bathrooms are really clean, but you can't help but get everything soaking wet when you're taking a shower since there's no curtain or divider between the shower and the sink and toilet (inside a private room).
