We booked The Collector from a recommendation and were certainly not disappointed. It was very comfortable and homely with flowers in our room. Our room was located at the front with our own balcony. The bathroom was very nice and clean. Clean towels were left for us every day. We enjoyed our breakfasts,cereals, eggs, pancakes, cheese, meat and bread which we could help ourselves to at what time we wanted. It is very handy for the bus 197 in and out of the airport, as well as no 16 tram into Central Station, although this is within within walking distance if you wanted. It also is very handy for the Concergetbouw the Rijskmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum on the Museum Plein all about a 5 min walk. The Collector is definitely a great place to stay and we would certainly book a room on our next trip to Amsterdam. Karel the owner is very kind and helpful, I happened to mention I was going to visit my cousins in Harrlem. Karel remembered this and he left me a note out at breakfast that morning informing me of a train crash. He gave me the instructions on which tram to catch to Sloterdyke and then see bus or train from there. This was very kind of him and greatly appreciated.
