We stayed here after reading other tripadvisor recommendations and had a wonderful time. Perfectly located away from the main touristy areas of Amsterdam but close to Vondelpark and the museum quarter, the Collector lived up to all expectations. The breakfasts were plentiful and included fresh fruit, excellent fruit toast and other breads, pancakes, meats, cheeses, yoghurts and cereals. The bedroom was enormous with a large and comfortable bed, balcony and very clean bathroom. The collections were very impressive, particularly the clogs lining the stairs. We would happily return again. A special thank you Karel for your generous hospitality.

- The Collector Bed and Breakfast offers bright, stylish and spacious rooms, each with its distinct own character: one decorated with Amsterdam School (Deco) furniture, the other one with Gispen Dutch Design classics. Both rooms have an ensuite bathroom. There's a guest kitchen for your breakfast around the clock. You will find a well stocked fridge, fresh fruits, a Nespresso coffee machine and lots more. Amenities include bath robes, a hair dryer, toiletries, a safety box, a guest computer to use for internet and email and there's even a bagage storage in case of early arrival or late departure. Here you will be able to freshen up, too. The house dates back to 1914 and is located just behind the Museum square with the Concert Hall (Concertgebouw), the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk Museum. The 17th century canal area is just a 10 minute walk from the B&B. There is direct bus line nearby for transfers from and to the airport. Your host Karel Poels is an active collector, who can tell about his different collections with lots of enthusiasm. You will find those collections in the guest rooms and the rest of the house: unique Dutch wooden skates, branded pins, chinaware, you name it! ... more less
