We had a wonderful time staying at the Collector. Karel is a great host - he communicated well before the stay and made sure we had everything we needed during the stay.
He stocks the fridge and cupboards in the guest kitchen and we had more than enough to make our own breakfasts at our leisure. If you are lucky you will get eggs from his own chickens.
The rooms are well-presented and a generous size with balconies.
The location is great - just south of the Museumplein, Vondelpark and the Concertgebouw, and lots of shops and restaurants are just around the corner. On a main road so easy to get to with public transport (bus 197 from the airport) but so quiet in the room at night.
We will definitely be staying again the next time we are in Amsterdam.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
