We booked The Collector based on the reviews and it lived up to all of the comments. If you want somewhere individual with character, relaxed and a friendly, helpful host then this is the right place. From the outside you wouldn't know it's a B&B,...More

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
