I picked Amsterdam as my FIRST trip to Europe and was told that the only true way to get the complete experience was to stay at Boogaards! All I can say is "WOW!". They were right! Despite traveling 4000 miles to Amsterdam, they made me feel right at home from the moment I walked through the door.
The Jack Russell suite was more than comfortable for the two of us AND our two big suitcases, and carry-ons. The extended space with a desk and lamp was a nice touch. It proved more than helpful when organizing all of our maps and accessing the free wi-fi and lap top. There were plenty of outlets that kept our phones and cameras charged. The extra long dresser allowed us to unpack our suitcases and make good use of the generous drawer space. Two comfy leather chairs sit in front of the fireplace and really provided a nice place to set a cup of tasty coffee, snack on a quick breakfast muffin and plan the day!
It is located in the heart of it all! A short 10 minute walk to Central Station and only a hop skip and a jump to Dam Square. From there, your options are endless! The local Tram literally takes you from one end of the city to the other where you can absolutely get lost in the beauty of the city's museums, open air markets and canal front bistros. The location couldn't be better! Boogard's is a soft spot to land after a long day of sight seeing, wine/cheese tasting and canal touring.
I had looked at many other B&Bs in the area and honestly, I would never stay anywhere but Boogards. Thank you Peter and Thomas, and Curly and Pepe for making my first time a memorable one. I promise to be back.
