This is the second time I visited "the Collector" and I was not disappointed. Karel and his assistant are wonderful people who will do everything to make you feel at home in the wonderful big room with balcony I received at my disposal.

Staying at this amazing Bed and Breakfast for a second time felt like coming home. The location is right in the middle of the city, a five-minute walk from Museum Square with grocery stores, the beautiful grassy Vondelpark, and tram stops all within a stone’s throw. The owner, Karel, is a font of helpful tips and insider knowledge. He peppers... More

We have just spent a lovely weekend in Amsterdam and booked to stay in the Collector B & B. This is an excellent place to stay, very central. Our host was extremely helpful and kind. Our room was great - very light and airy with an extremely comfortable bed and good bathroom with shower. Even though it is situated on... More

From the outside, The Collector B&B looked clean and comfortable and inviting. The well-tended red geraniums in the spotless windows offered a cheerful contrast to the seasoned brick of the century-old town house, and the collection of walking sticks in the vestibule hinted at the homey warmth we experienced throughout our 3-day stay. With the 16 tram just outside the... More

We had the room on the first floor (ground floor = the street level) overlooking the main street. It was a very clean spacious room. The beds were comfortable. The en suite bathroom has a shower, water pressure was excellent, and towels were changed daily. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. It is a do it yourself breakfast, but... More

walk to every major museum from this well run B+B--perfectly located in an upscale neighborhood and blocks from the museums. The tram to the Central train station is right outside your door, too. Karel and Fauzon are your hosts. The two rooms are located at the top of a narrow winding staircase. We stayed in the Clock Room--large, airy, clean,... More

Great little B&B close to the museum area and in nice quiet neighbourhood. Good size room with small balcony. Use of shared kitchen is very useful and fridge is well stocked. There are bicycles to rent. All in all a good choice if you like peace and quiet.

I returned recently from my 9th stay at this fine place. The weather for most of the visit was cold and rainy. It spit a little snow and there was hail. So it was even better returning to my specious room each evening. There have been some additions since my last visit. There is a new state of the art... More

This lovely B&B is very well located, our clean room was perfect with lots of welcome extras, the shared Kitchen was very useful. Karel was the perfect host and wants to make your stay the best experience possible. We highly recommend The Collector B&B.

Visited Amsterdam as a couple for 5 days. Loved staying at The Collector. The owner is very kind and everything is extremely well organized and managed. Price is very fair for the type of comfort and service. Decor of the hotel is very nice. Breakfast treats were amazing.

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
