Like many others, we booked Boogaard's because of its reviews on TA (and also Rick Steves). We can confirm that the raves are well deserved. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as welcome guests. We had the Jack Russell room, which has a small anteroom that makes it seem more spacious. The bed and linens were comfortable, the...

Our stay here was definitely the best of the entire trip! Our host Pieter was completely hospitable, effervescent, informational, and a wonderful cook. When he had to leave for a few days, his housekeeper Wilma took over in capable style. We loved our cosy, comfortable room with traditional decor and updated fittings. The breakfasts were to die for, and treats... More

The B&B is located on a small side street in the old city. One end of the street leads to a number of excellent restaurants, and the other end leads to a busy canal, with cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and the attractions of old Amsterdam. Your host Peter will serve you a homemade, bountiful breakfast, and can direct you to... More

The best part of our trip to Amsterdam was being able to stay at this amazing B&B in the center of town. Pieter, our host, absolutely exceeded our expectations. He is so warm and welcoming that we felt right at home immediately. Pieter was so interested in us and our experience in his city. He bent over backwards to make... More

My daughter and I stayed at Boogaard's for 3 nights in June and considered this a highlight of our trip. Having read the wonderful reviews, it still exceeded our expectations. The location, right off Dam Square and 10 minutes walking from Centraal Station, the lovely and immaculate rooms (with amazing beds and pillows), and the superb breakfasts each morning are... More

My husband, Terry and I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful BnB for 4 nights. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Boogards is in a great location, within walking distance of most attractions. Our room was meticulous, the bed so comfortable, and our room had so much charm. Our host, Peter couldn't have done anything else... More

Boogaard's B&B is pretty much a non-descript building on a non-descript side-street in the centre of Amsterdam. But the second you open the door and get past the ordinary exterior, the warm greeting and welcome you get is anything but ordinary. The owner, Peter, will greet you at the door and right away, you feel part of the family. He... More

This was our favorite B&B of this whole trip to Europe. Peter is an amazing host, and the B&B is charming, comfortable, and really centrally located just next to Dam Square. When we arrived after a long day of traveling, the whole house smelled like fresh baked brownies that Peter had made and put in our room refrigerator as a... More

Yes, the location is great right off Dam Square and a short walk from a number of great and reasonably priced restaurants. Yes, the rooms are comfortable and very well appointed. However, it is Peter that sets this B&B apart. He exudes a generosity of spirit. He wants to take care of his guests and he succeeds. Breakfasts have all... More

We are a "mature" couple and spent 3 days at Peter's charming B&B. He is a delightful person, willing/anxious to discuss your plans, his city and his country and a stellar cook/baker. If he makes croissants during your stay, these will be the finest you will ever have! Highest possible recommendation (although I will be ticked off when I can't... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
