“"A little bit of heaven"”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

This was my second visit to Boogaards B & B and I cannot wait for the third. Two nights was definitely not long enough. Peter is the most gracious of hosts, and a fantastic baker. There seemed to be an endless supply of baked goods and the breakfast he prepared was fantastic. The home is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The location is superb and within walking distance of the train station. If you do not stay here it would be a big mistake. I cannot wait to come back.

I just spent 3 nights there with my husband and it was just as described in Tripadvisor: the beautiful house, the best location, an incredibly comfortable bed, the best breakfasts ever and Peter's help with everything. He even packed the breakfast we couldn't finish every day so that we could have it as a snack later. The last day of our stay he made delicious brownies and gave us 2 for us to eat at the airport. I wouldn't be able to stay anywhere else in Amsterdam and have already recomended Boogaard's to all my friends and family, as it was like home away from home. Thanks again for everything, Peter!

Room Tip: All are great!

I have nothing but positive remarks to make in respect of Boogaard’s Bed & Breakfast where my husband and I spent 3 nights recently, (wished we could have stayed longer!) What a uniquely fabulous place, a beautiful 17th Century town house, ideally placed, down a quite pretty street. The house is immaculate, very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Peter, the owner was so welcoming and a perfect host, so helpful in what to do in the wonderful city of Amsterdam and recommending places to eat etc. The breakfasts were out of this world due to Peter’s excellent cooking and baking skills. The two dogs were beautifully behaved and added to the warm ambiance of this truly remarkable home. Thank you Peter, Tomasz and the boys for letting us share your home and giving us such a memorable stay in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Choose any of the the rooms they are all excellent.

We were lucky enough to book into Peter and Tom 's b&b for our 4 day break between christmas and new year- what a great choice. Boogard's is situated in a typical old Amsterdam house in one of the few streets that does not overlook a canal. This was a bonus - no traffic at all except bicycles and the odd pedestrian, so we slept really well every night (assisted by a very comfy bed & the odd beer or three). It's right in the hub of the old town and convenient for the station and anywhere you might choose to visit. Peter is an exceptional host who makes sure you eat well and rest well - his breakfasts are quite something and include stuffed croissants, pancakes (with 20 or more toppings - I lost count) as well as fresh fruit, cereals, fresh baked rolls etc etc . Everything is home cooked by Peter - and he is a good cook. The house is beautiful and being Christmas, extra pretty with lights and tree etc. We had our own lounge to use which was nice and we appreciated the cakes, cookies, coffee, tea and even beer which Peter left each day, should we find ourselves 'peckish' - which was hard as he definitely enjoys feeding his guests. All in all, we felt very fortunate to be staying at Boogard's for my first ever trip to holland. We would recommend it to anyone (unless you can't climb stairs - a problem in all old Amsterdam houses). Fab place to stay in a magical city!

Room Tip: I suspect they are all good- best ask for first floor if you don't like climbing stairs

Excellent location. Beautiful rooms. A very generous and knowledgeable host. The most incredible food. What more can we say! Possibly the nicest place we have ever stayed (and certainty the nicest place we have stayed in Europe). Thankyou Peter!

We stayed for only three nights but would have loved to have stayed longer. Even though it was early December and cool and windy in the city, Peter's welcome and generous hospitality meant we enjoyed the city regardless and with his guidance we fitted a lot into a brief visit. The house is attractive, the neighbourhood wonderful but it is your host's thoughtfulness (and baking!) that will make a stay here a one-off you will treasure. Worth booking ahead and fitting the rest of your trip around when he has a room available.

Room Tip: All the rooms were fine but just book ahead so as to be sure of getting one

This was our first visit to Amsterdam and thanks to Trip Advisor booked the most amazing place to stay. Peter was the perfect host with a great knowledge of Amsterdam to guide us on our way together with local books and maps. He greeted and welcomed us into his and Tomasz's gorgeous home and was patient, witty and could of course advise us on how best to spend our few days there with our two children. We took over the second floor which suited us perfectly - my eldest being thrilled with the laptop and internet access! My youngest even more thrilled with the two beautiful dogs!! The house is decorated with immaculate attention to detail and the beds and pillows superbly comfy. The guesthouse is centrally placed, a really short walk from the train station and almost around the corner from anywhere you want to go. That said, its down a very quiet street so you won't be disturbed. The daily cakes and huge homemade breakfasts were absolutely fantastic, such choice I only wish we could have physically eaten more (Peter gave us a doggy bag of his freshly cooked filled bagels one morning because there was so much over!) Much appreciated Peter, children are constantly hungry!. Thanks for the great hospitality Peter and Tomasz. We cannot recommend you highly enough. Merry Christmas.....
