We stay at this place a lot. GREAT!!!!! http://www.hotelhortus.com/
Yeah, its called a hotel, but very much like a hostel and they are "smoke" friendly. Free internet and free breakfast....

Thanks for the quick reply!
Looks good, but it seems to be booked up between the 2nd and 4th of august when i'll be there
I've seen Hotel Annemarie and the Budget Hotel Tourist Inn seem to get pretty good reviews, anyone had any experience?

I would call ahead and confirm your booking....

Not a slur on the TP booking site, but my friend stayed at the Bulldog earlier in the year and booked it online and they literally had no idea who he was and had no reference to his booking!

Yeah I was going to suggest emailing the Bulldog directly but it looks like you got it worked out. Definitely follow up and make sure you have a confirmation directly from them.

Thought this might be the ideal thread to post this..

What are people's opinions on The Flying Pig Downtown? Reviews on the internet don't really seem to go into much depth. People either freakin' loved the place or despised it. Thoughts?
