Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #13 of 338 Amsterdam B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2011

We stayed at Boogaard’s for five nights early this spring. We were so delighted with our experience that we have already recommended Boogaard’s to friends who are headed for Holland. First, the place is perfectly located, about 8 minutes’ walk from the train station and within walking distance of just about everything a tourist wants to do in Amsterdam. And, when you don’t want to walk, it’s a short hop from Boogaard’s to the clean, quiet, economical tram. Langestraat is picturesque and Boogaard’s red door easy to spot. Second, Peter is not only an articulate, engaging, and very attentive host, but also a good cook! There is a different, typically lavish, breakfast everyday—bagels, pancakes, Dutch omlettes, and always with “all the fixings.” When you want to eat out, Peter knows where to send you. We loved the food we had in restaurants. In addition, the rooms are large, comfortable, and quiet. Every two rooms share a sitting room with a full, well stocked kitchen. There is beer and soda in the fridge; a coffee maker with tea, coffee, milk, and sugar; and Peter almost daily adds a freshly baked dessert. Then there are real foods—pasta, cereal, soups,…the list goes on. Peter even does your laundry! There is absolutely no doubt that we would happily go there again.

Room Tip: We liked the back, off the street.

Boogaard's B&B is a scenic and relatively short walk from the Amsterdam Central train station. The directions provided by Boogaards's were very easy to follow. Upon entering the B&B, the steep stairs at first appeared daunting, but then that's the charm of an old Amsterdam home. Shortly, we were going up and down the stairs like we had been born there (and I'm 67). We had the Jack room on the 3rd floor, which was very comfortable and quiet. There was a sitting room which the shared with the Pug Room (also on the 3rd floor) with comfortable chairs/sofas and a little refrigerator which was stocked every day with soft drinks, beer, and Peter's delicious baked goodies. This was a perfect place to come and relax after sightseeing. The breakfasts were delicious with a different menu each day. We viisted with the other guests and planned our days with Peter's guidance. Allow plenty of time for breakfast as it starts at 9 AM and is an experience not to be missed. Peter and Dave gave us perfect travel tips, printed online tickets so that we wouldn't have to wait in line at the museums, were eager to meet or even anticipate our every need, and offered excellent suggestions for restaurants. The location is within walking distance of many sights and restaurants, and the tram line (numbers 2 or 5) to the van Gogh and Riks museums is only a short walk. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It was an experience not to be missed and we were thoroughly pleased.

Just returned from a short stay in Amsterdam. Chose this wonderful b&b based on reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. Peter is a charming host. This is how all b&b's should be. We were welcomed every morning to the large breakfast table. The food was excellent and plentiful and we enjoyed some wonderful conversations with our fellow travellers. Peter gave us advice on where to go, what to see, and how to get there. He really cares about his guests and nothing is too much trouble. We would love to return to Amsterdam and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Thank you Peter for a memorable first trip to Amsterdam. Don't just take our word for it - see for yourself !!

Jim and I stayed 9 nights at Boogaard's. The room: nicely decorated, spotless, great mattress. The location: small, lovely side street near the central train station, quiet. The amenities: use of kitchen, laundry service, massive and thoroughly tasty breakfasts, guidance on places to see, restaurants, always perfect suggestions. The host: Peter, what a delightful individual! Smart, kind, knowledgeable and fun to be around.

If you are an early riser, go for a walk first. Breakfast begins at 9. Don't think you will eat and run. The meal is family style, not sad little silent table islands. At the end of our stay, when thinking of our most memorable times, we agreed sitting at breakfast with our fellow tourists and Peter was at the top of the list.

We were sightseeing in Amsterdam on a budget, but we needn't have worried; breakfast was so huge that not once during our stay did we buy lunch! We would look at our watches, 4:10 pm, nope, not hungry yet.

Jim and I will be returning to Amsterdam; how can we not? And you can be sure we will book at Boogaard's.

Room Tip: All the rooms great, acccording to other tourists

We absolutely loved our stay at Boogaard's B & B. We felt taken care of by Peter in every way. The other reviewers have stated in detail all the wonderful services provided by this B & B. The #1 rating is well deserved given the unusual care and attention that we received. For example, we almost made a mistake when booking a train to Bruges which would have required inconvenient two change of trains with all of our luggage. Fortunately Peter asked us about our plans and redirected us to a better departure time that avoided the second change. The ticket agent at the train station did not alert us to these important details.

Thank you Peter for the delicious food, fine hospitality and your time and attention.

We would highly recommend Boogaard’s. The place itself is charming and perfectly situated on a beautiful residential street close to the train station. Peter was an amazing host: gave endless sight-seeing and restaurant advice, made dinner reservations for us, left fresh baked goods in the shared living room, did our laundry, the list goes on. Breakfast was fresh, delicious, and generous to the extent that we rarely ate lunch. We felt completely at home and pampered at Boogaard’s.
