“Best B&B in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We were so lucky to find this special B&B in Amsterdam. All the rooms are beautifully appointed and newly remodeled. Everything is kept so clean and comfortable. The breakfasts and snacks are amazing. Peter helped us with dinner recommendations and reservations and was a fantastic host. He and this B&B set a high bar. We'd definitely stay there again for another Amsterdam visit.

We were so fortunate to have found this fabulous B&B. We stay at B&B's a lot and this is one of the nicest we have stayed at in a long time. The host, Peter welcomes you into his house like you are part of his family. He made us the greatest breakfasts and afternoon treats. The traditional dutch breakfast was awesome! And the homemade chocolate covered cream puffs were decadent. The bed was very comfortable as well as the pillows. The bathroom was spacious and we were able to take a bath in the huge Dutch bathtub after walking all day. The rooms are beautifully decorated and luxurious. The B&B is in a great location. You can walk to everything or take a tram or train anywhere. We took a train from the airport to Central Station and then walked to the B&B. Our only regret is that the B&B is not closer for us to stay more often. Thank you Peter for opening your home to guests around the world.

We spent a week during the April tulip season in Peter's home. We had a marvelous time. The B&B is beautifully appointed, newly remodeled. Peter is a fantastic host in so many ways. I'll try to list them. He treats his guests like family. He cooks these amazing breakfasts - have you ever had "uitsmijter"? Never like Peter's! He gauges your interests and makes "on-the-mark" suggestions for travel and restaurants. We've never eaten better in a European city. More than than, Peter is a wonderful, magnanimous person and very entertaining. He even does your laundry! If at all possible, try to stay at Boogaard's. You won't be disappointed.

Peter was a marvelous host for our first trip to Amsterdam. He was helpful prior to arrival and while we were there with recommendations for dinner, provision of umbrellas, printing of boarding passes. Best of all, the B & B was very clean and comfortable - as long as one can climb stairs, and the breakfasts were incredible. Never needed lunch. Everyone always joined together to share breakfast and discuss the previous day or the current day's plans. The location was easy to find and within walking distance of Central Station. Our room was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and had everything we needed. A laptop was available in the room. I would recommend this B & B to everyone.

Where to start? A perfect location, easily walkable from the train. This is a new place, opened in March and with fewer rooms than Peter's previous b&b--only 3 in high season and down to 2 in the winter. The whole place was completely renovated in January and February, so it's pretty brand new. It's a lovely little place on a very quiet street (in spite of the proximity to Dam Square) and at the same time in the center, so nothing is really far away. It's hard to describe how Peter's personality and his generosity and genuineness just draws you in--the abundant custom-cooked breakfasts, the little homebaked treats left for you in the fridge outside your room, the super helpfulness with tours and restaurants and train tickets--not to mention the interesting conversations and two adorable Jack Russell terriers. (It helps to be a dog lover.) Impeccable newly done bedrooms tastefully decorated (in dog themes to celebrate Peter and Tomasz's pups) with plenty of modern amenities and storage for your things. Not huge, but we're in Amsterdam where none of the charming old buildings are really spacious and it's kind of amazing how well they've used the space. Others have said it, but you feel like a welcome guest in their family and that Peter is perhaps your mom. Don't sign up if you can't climb some stairs or you don't like dogs, but you'll be missing something. A great value too.

Room Tip: Both rooms looked great--but we liked our Jack Russell room with the separate space for a desk and s...

Fantastic location around the corner from Dam Square. Spacious room that had everything we could possibly need. But as others have said, the best part is Peter, the perfect host. He really does have his finger on the pulse of everything going on in the city. Breakfasts were out of this world (homemade croissants, apple turnovers, quiches) and afternoon treats were very special. All his restaurant recommendations were excellent. He did laundry for us also.
Don't stay anywhere else!

...except my mom, rest her soul, never made the breakfasts Peter does. The location is the best and the room was amazing, very comfortable super clean and the bed, awesome! Everything was perfect and like the heading says it was like staying at Mom's (a good thing). If I had any cons it would be the steps which can be hard on the ole knees but once at the top it is all worth it to get into the lovely, comfy room and the complimentary wine and homemade desserts waiting for you. Peter is a real people pleaser and Tomas is very nice as well! Thank you both!

Room Tip: I had the Jack Russell Room and loved it, probably the more quieter of the rooms as it is in the bac...
