What a great place to stay if you visit Amsterdam! The rooms are spacy (our room had a balcony), the shower is great and you can use the complete kitchen. It is just outside the centre but close enough to just walk there. And it is so easy: you park your car at the P+R Olympisch Stadion, just take tram... More

The Collector is a charming three room B&B that is steps from the cultural center of Amsterdam. If you are lucky enough to book a room, you will be delighted by the charm and attention to detail as you are confronted by unusual collections of clocks, shoes, perfume bottles and other "objets". You will also enjoy the clean and crisp... More

My wife & I stayed at The Collector mid-August '14. It was booked, unknown to me, as part of a 50th birthday celebration mystery tour. The Collector was a very pleasant surprise. A simple welcome & tour of a unique place. Large accommodation with en-suite facilities. Our room, The Clock Room, was on the first floor & right next to... More

We spent a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam with two of our best friends. Karel, the owner of the B&B, is very charming and he really made us feel at home. We had two spacious rooms overlooking the garden. The rooms are very nicely decorated, the bathrooms were spacious, very clean and the kitchen is really cosy. There is everything you... More

We stayed for three nights in October. Because Karel was away, a young Indonesian man was our host. This was a special treat for me because he could recommend Indonesian restaurants. He was very, very helpful. He carried our suitcases upstairs. When my friend was unsure of where to catch the airport bus, he took us to the nearby stop.... More

There are only three rooms here, but if you are lucky enough to snag one, you now have a very comfortable place to call home during your stay in Amsterdam. It is easy walking to the Museumplein and beyond to the canal areas. It is very close to Vondel Park, one of the nicest green spaces in Amsterdam. There is... More

The location is unbeatable. Bus #197 from Schipol airport ( 5 euros 1 way ) stops nearby on the same street, just backtrack about 150m from the direction the bus came. Nearby is the museum area ( Van Goh, Rijks Museum ) and there is a supermarket ( underground ) called Albert Heijn. Lots of restaurants for all budgets and... More
