Heads up: Don’t expect to stay in Amsterdam centre and have huge rooms as everything is extremely narrow in the city, roads, houses, shops, stairs you name it. If you like a lot of space in rooms stay outside the city and travel via trams...More

I love the bulldog Café. It’s seriously a gym in Amsterdam. But the best part about the hotel is that not many people end up going into the café so it’s quite easy to find a place to smoke and have a nice hot coffee.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
