I visited b&b with my friend past September based on the reviews at this site. Everything was perfect. The location is great- the bus from/to the airport is just a few blocks away and the museum quarter is less then 5 minutes walk. The room was very clean, fresh towels every day. And the owner, Carel, is very nice.

This lovely B and B is on a quiet street in a lovely part of town. It is well-located and convenient to museums and public transport, including an easy bus ride from the airport. The accommodations are spacious and comfortable. Karel was the perfect host and helped with reservations and local suggestions. Try to stay on the weekend, as there... More

We have just spent 3 nights here and agree with all the other great reviews. Karel couldn't have been more attentive. As our flight was late in the day he even gave us a room that we could leave our suitcases in and have a shower if we wanted. The location is great and we loved being able to walk... More

Convenient location in charming neighborhood with many restaurants near by to choose from, a grocery store, and the museums & a concert hall. Tram and metro bus stop right out in front.

We were delighted to discover this B&B located just steps from our favourite Amsterdam museums and the Concertgebouw. A comfortable bed, good shower and a fridge stocked daily with fresh food for breakfast - all the details are looked after by the friendly hosts. It was a pleasure to stay at this B&B and we do plan to return next... More

I have just returned to DC after 17 days at this fine place. As usual Karel and his assitant Fausan welcomed me back. After 7 visits they have become friends and this certainly adds to the pleasure of being there. Actually everyone is treated as a friend and you don't have to visit that often for this to happen.

Perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. City tram stops right in front of your front door. You can walk within minutes to the best Museums in the city and also the world famous Vondelpark, which is great for biking, strolling, or jogging any time of the day. We stayed in the clock room and it could not have been more... More

I stayed here for 3 days during my attendance of a conference at RAI. The Collectors is located very conveniently: just in front of Tram 16 station Jacob Obrechtstraat and a few minutes walk from Museumplein. The B & B itself was very clean and simple. You could enjoy breakfast on your own in well-prepared kitchen. Its neighborhood was extremely... More

This B&B is 5 stars x 2. You will not want for anything here. Communication is superb, the location is prime and Karel is an amazing and knowledgable host. My one night stay was the most restful and peaceful of my 10 day holiday and Karel recommended an amazing french restaurant for my last nights stay in Amsterdam.

This is a great little B&B within walking distance to all that you will want to see. If you get tired of walking, then simply step across the street to the trolley stop. It will get you to anywhere you want to go. There is also a taxi stop just two blocks down the street. In a town so full... More

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.
