We stay at the clock room for 5 days and 4 nights. Personally, I am so amaze with the interior of the bnb, it’s so unique and interesting since it has display of Karel’s collection all over the place. You can find interesting stuff right the moment you are entering the bnb (at the foyer). It continues until the stairs, the room and the kitchen. Room was amazing, huge, clean and has a nice little balcony with flowers. Kitchen has been our favorite spot since we can do all the cooking and chatting here. I just love the way things are arranged. You can find lots of kitchen utensils, fridge full of juice, milk, and what makes it better; they actually provide fresh eggs from their little chicken coop at the backyard. So cool! Fauzan, the guy who assist the bnb is really nice, informative and helpful as well. He really help us on many things, such as providing information on favorite places to visit, where to shop and little other things. The location also superb, it is so near to the museumplein and the tram station is just in front of the bnb. Really love the place!
