We first stayed at The Collector 4 years ago and this time and it felt like returning home. Karel is the perfect 'host' available when you need advice or want to chat but leaving you free to enjoy your beautifully appointed room. We had a lovely outlook onto our long balcony and into the trees. The very cute well stocked breakfast room/kitchen has everything you might want, Karel even provides fresh organic bread if you prefer. Everything is high quality - fresh fruits, cereals, mueslies, pancakes, yoghurts, cheeses, cold meats, jams, juices, chocolate, coffee & many teas.The eggs are from the hens in the garden! It is in a lovely neighborhood, architecture, trees, good eating & boutique shopping; perfect positioning near Museum Platz, the canals and Vongel Park, with buses and trams on the street outside (which connect direct to trains & airport), but we walked everywhere. Need some laundry done? No problem & no extra charge. This was best place we stayed in on our 5 week tour of Netherlands, Germany and France. Makes us want to visit Amsterdam a 3rd time!
