Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #13 of 337 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 16, 2010

Although our stay in Amsterdam was a short one, with two days and two nights, we had an incredible stay at Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast while on our visit in this wonderful city. From our first arrival we were greeted by Peter and warmly welcomed with freshly baked gourmet brownies. Since we had such a short stay, Peter went out of his way to make the most of our visit and highlighted the must sees for us.

Peter is an excellent cook and prepared a delicious breakfast. We greatly enjoyed the conversations with him and the other guests in the morning. Peter is a wonderful and exceptional host and we hope to be able to go back for another visit when we will be able to enjoy more time in the lovely city of Amsterdam and to be able to enjoy the hospitality and exceptional service at Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast.

With 30 years of domestic and international travel, and a penchant for B&B’s, we finally discovered the “Gold Standard” of B&B’s – Boogaard’s Bed & Breakfast in Amsterdam. We stayed there four days and 5 nights, and each day was consistently excellent, both in the quality of accommodations, the fantastic breakfasts (a different “food theme” every day) and the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner, Peter Boogaard, his partner Tomasz, and his two housekeepers.

There are four cheerful bedrooms; two on each floor, each separated by a shared living room, in this 17th century Dutch four-story building in the historic Jordaan district. The main level consists of the kitchen and dining area. The second and third floors the guest rooms, and the fourth floor is the owner’s quarters.
Unlike many B&B’s and hotels rooms in European cities, Boogaard’s has large rooms and beds, and generous-size bathrooms, each with a large separate shower that doesn’t make the entire bathroom wet.

If you spend more than a couple of days at Boogaard’s, you can’t help but feel like you’re leaving behind family as you check out. Boogaards, in our opinion, is a must do experience, as much as visiting museums, seeing the sights, and dining where the locals eat.

If there is a magic ingredient in the Boogaard B&B experience, it’s Peter’s genuine concern and desire for pleasing his guests. Many great compliments have already been posted by other guests, so all we want to add is that anyone who leaves Boogaard’s disappointed or dissatisfied is simply impossible to please.

Boogards is the best B&B we have stayed in anywhere in the world.It is centrally located a short distance from the central railway station. It is in the lovely canal area and within walking distance of many Amsterdam's attractions.Peter is a most generous host nothing is too much trouble. Extras included laundry,internet access,beautiful homemade cakes and biscuits. Our room was very comfortable with homely touches e.g. bathrobes,toiletries,etc .Peter's breakfasts have to be experienced to be believed. No need for lunch!! This B&B comes highly recommended.Hopefully we will return one day.Thank you Peter.

Boogaard B&B deserves its #1 ranking. Peter is a wonderful host, cook, baker, tour guide. The house has a great location, quiet street off of major canals. Four rooms is about right for great breakfast conversations. Two rooms are on one floor with a shared living room/kitchen and the other two, including our room, are one floor further up, also with a shared living room/kitchen. Wifi, afternoon goodies, comfortable beds, great conversation, who could ask for more.

The bonus is that Amsterdam is such a wonderful city - more canals than Venice, more bikes than cars, easy to walk or tram anywhere, great restaurants, incredible museums. There is much more to Amsterdam than the red light district and coffee shops that I remember from my visit when I was in my 20's.

I spent four nights at Boogaard's with a friend,since we reserved two rooms we basically had a two bedroom ,two bath apartment with fully equipped..and stocked kitchen,and a large living area complete with guidebooks and a laptop!!!
Peter is an absolutely fabulous host....
Breakfast is magical...our favorite was the pancake feast,perfectly cooked pancakes,21 different toppings and delicious bacon. Every day Peter provides a different menu.
After breakfast our gracious host would inquire about dinner plans and offer to make reservations at nearby restaurants. We had great dinners at Prego,Season's and Scarpetta....would highly recommend all three for great food and an overall memorable dining experience.
As we prepared to say goodbye and depart for our train trip to Paris, Peter surprised us with a wonderful lunch to enjoy on the train, dutch cheese sandwiches on homemade raisin bread,fruit and special dutch cookies.....really does not get any better than this.

Although we only spent four days with Peter,Curly and Pepe as we said goodbye we felt as though we were leaving life long friends....

To Peter , Thank you very much for your hospitality....
Boogaard's is an experience we will always remember.
Hope to return someday soon.

If you don’t enjoy great company, exceptional food, a level of service found in 5 star hotels and accommodation of the highest quality then Boogards is not for you. However we do enjoy these things and Boogards met and exceeded every expectation we had. We cannot add anything to all the positive reviews given, they are all true. The breakfasts were superb and it’s a good job Peter does not weigh you on arrival and then departure. The quality and quantity does set you up for a day’s sightseeing of this wonderful city. Returning in the evening to an immaculately clean room, fresh towels, a restocked fridge, and home baked cakes all with an endless supply of coffee or tea. Every room is of the highest standard and to say you’re in central Amsterdam, it was great to be able to leave the window open at night and have a good nights sleep.
Peter was able to direct us towards eating establishments to suit our needs but also was directing other guests to differing establishments. He does appear to have eaten City wide, though Seasons was a regular suggestion and after sampling their food we can see why. His knowledge of the city can direct you to places you want to visit or to places you have not even considered. If you want a memorable stay in a memorable city this is the place. Thank you Peter, Tomasz, Pepe & Curly.

Just a little note for Peter, you're B&B is simply the best place to stay in Amsterdam. Nice clean rooms enough space to move around, Super homemade breakfast in the morning with interesting conversation with our host and the other guests, nice kitchen area to have coffee and plan your activities for the next day. All the advice on what to do in town and any help you'd need to get there or with reservations for dinner. Thanks again Peter and be sure we'll be back.
