“A fab base to explore Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Four of us stayed at the apartment of Peter Boogaard for 4 wonderful nights. The reviews that we read before booking this B&B are totally right - this is a brilliant place, with excellent personal service by the owner himself. Although we were in the apartment, and not in the bed and breakfast rooms, we still got lots of goodies in the fridge, additional cakes, a welcome drink - all as a genuine welcoming gesture.
The house itself was stunning with loads of christmas decorations, lights, and more. A real festive spirit to start our pre-Christmas holiday.
The apartment is totally equipped with everything you may need, and the beds have more cushions than you can cope with - a real "plus" for my wife. We all cuddled up on the chairs and sofa each evening, as if we were in our own living room.
Peter's knowledge of Amsterdam is better than any guidebook we read (he has lots of them stacked on shelves in the living room), and you should ask him about Indonesian restaurants - fabulous!
What else can we say? Just go and see for yourself!

I stayed at boorgaard's in November 2013. Our host peter is a lovely man who made us feel very welcome.

He baked us some lovely breakfasts such as home made croissants.

The bedrooms were nice and a reasonable size for a 400 year old building in Amsterdam. Loved the sitting room between the 2 bedrooms as well. If you're lucky, you can meet Peter and tom's badger!

Peter is awesome! A fantastic host, a wonderful chef, and a fount of tourist knowledge. The property is well decorated, impeccably clean and it is a vibrant community of people coming and going interacting with the locals. Plus their two Jack Russells are quite entertaining as they protect the perimeter from dangerous postal incursions and menacing dogs and cats passing by in the little street.

Be prepared to climb the typically Dutch-style stairs.

A very highly recommended adventure in B&Bing! And Peter is moving the B&B to a new location in January, so I look forward to seeing that also, as the plans look marvellous.

Room Tip: Two words: Good shoes. And that applies for going about Amstersdam in general.

Boogaard's is a great B and B in a wonderful location. Our lovely room faced a charming and quiet street and I enjoyed people watching from our window. We also shared a beautiful sitting room with the one other room on our floor. There is a fridge in an alcove stocked with drinks, wine, a couple of beers and coffee and tea making things. Peter is a gracious and friendly host who goes out of his way to make you feel at home and get the most out of Amsterdam. I can't say enough about the extra care he provided--his restaurant suggestions were excellent and his suggestions about museums spot on. Thank you, Peter, for suggesting the Museum of Bags and Purses and The Yellow Bike Tour. He is a fabulous baker and his breakfasts and afternoon treats in the sitting room were one of the highlights of our stay. We spend 4 nights at Boogaards and I wish it could have been longer. Peter is friendly and a great story teller, who knows the Amsterdam and America well. I hope we can return some day soon. Best location, best host, best breakfast, best attention to detail!

Wow - we really landed on our feet with this choice from the internet. The B&B Boogaards is owned and operated by Peter Boogaard who is the loveliest landlord ever. The building is situated in a quiet street (we rarely saw any cars going through), and consists of a 2-bedroom apartment which can also be rented as 2 B&B rooms, then there are another 2 B&B rooms upstairs. It is about a 10 minute walk to Dam Square, and just a few minutes to great restaurants. To say the rooms are exquisitely and tastefully decorated is an understatement, and soooooo comfortable. We had the 2-bedroom apartment which comes complete with a full kitchen, and I mean a FULL kitchen - complete with food, drinks, cleaning products etc etc. We have never stayed anywhere before that has been so thoughtfully outfitted. Peter can't do enough for you, and will advise on restaurants, attractions etc. The steps up to the rooms may be a problem for anyone physically challenged. We absolutely loved this place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous.

Boogaard’s is undoubtedly the best B&B I've stayed at. Peter is the consummate host, making you feel like you’re part of the family from the moment you arrive. The house is an easy 5-10 minute walk from Centraal Station on a quiet street between two beautiful canals, and a 20 minute walk from the Bloemenmarkt and all the major sights.
Peter’s attention to detail really sets Boogaard’s apart. He goes above and beyond to ensure his guests’ comfort. The house is spotless and our bed in the Pug room was large and comfortable. All of the amenities you could want are provided: laundry service, a guest fridge stocked with drinks, afternoon treats baked by Peter himself, toiletries in the bathroom, and the incredible breakfast each morning. I could go on and on…
Peter was so helpful with information for things to do, restaurant recommendations, and even booked reservations for us. Everyone we encountered at Boogaard’s was warm and friendly. Chatting with Peter and hearing about his life was one of my favorite things about our stay. He really has a gift for making you feel like you’re visiting an old friend - without being intrusive on your privacy while staying.
You really must go and experience Boogaard’s for yourself! I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Amsterdam!

I cannot say enough about Peter and his second-to-none service and friendliness. This is the best B&B my wife and I have ever stayed in. The day we arrived, after a long flight, Peter let us drop off our bags since it was still too early to check in. When we came back later, Peter offered to launder our clothes for us and place them in our room the next morning. I have never had that offered anywhere else. Peter also stocks a refrigerator with cold drinks, even a few beers, at no extra charge. He also makes a special dessert each afternoon that is kept in a dish near the room that you can enjoy after your day of sightseeing. Just when I started thinking it couldn't get much better, Peter makes breakfast each morning, completely from scratch, and he's an excellent cook! One morning we had ham and cheese croissants, chocolate croissants, fresh fruit etc. Another morning we had Dutch pancakes with about 25 different toppings to choose from, and I'm not exaggerating. Peter even took the time to show us where he and his partner live inside the building, I have never had that offered before. Other touches like a razor and toothpaste in your bathroom really just ice the already delicious cake here. I cannot recommend this place highly enough if you are staying overnight in Amsterdam. Book early, it's popular for a reason!
