“Boogaard's is "the" place to stay in Amsterdam”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

My wife and I had the great pleasure of staying at Boogaard’s last month on our first trip to Amsterdam. The home is clean, cozy, comfortable, and located such that a majority of attractions are within easy walking distance. Each morning began around the large dining room table downstairs with a different, but equally scrumptious hand-prepared breakfast with leftovers offered as a sack lunch for the day.

You can expect some sort of delectable treat awaiting your return in the afternoon/evening to snack on at your leisure. A large sitting room separates the “Pug” and “Jack Russell” rooms complete with computer, tour books, frig and selection of hot beverages.

Peter was both gracious and informative, helping us lay out our excursions and setting up dinner reservations as needed. He is a delight to be around and you quickly feel a part of the family, which includes Pepe’ and Curly, Peter’s two adorable and well behaved Jack Russell’s.

There is no doubt we will make every attempt to stay here on future trips to Amsterdam and, at the very least, stop and visit what I am very happy to now call one of our second homes. Thank you Peter for an absolutely wonderful experience.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights and had the most amazing stay. I only wish we could have stayed longer. The bedroom, bathroom, and common room between bedrooms were spacious, very clean, and cozy. Peter was so helpful and recommended great places to visit and eat. He was also very patient with us when giving directions. I am definitely missing the wonderful homemade breakfasts and afternoon baked treats Peter made for us (pancakes, croissants, apple cake....I miss it all). The building the bed and breakfast is in is beautiful and you can tell a lot of love has been put into it. The location is also very convenient (near the Anne Frank House) and within walking distance to most things. Peter's dogs, Curly and Pepe, are adorable too. Peter also offered a free laundry service to us, which we were VERY grateful for considering we had been traveling for about 4 weeks and were very low on clean clothes. I'm pretty sure they came back cleaner than when I wash them at home.

Thank you so much again for everything, Peter, we will be back hopefully in the near future and will definitely be staying with you :) I also have to thank you for introducing me to cookie butter, it's quite life-changing.

The only thing better than the location are the folks who run this place. Seldom do you find a host with such love of life and his clients. Peter, Thomaz and their "boys" (two extremely well behaved terriers) are a blessing to travellers looking to get a feel for the real Amsterdam, not the sex/drug tourist. Any baked goods not freshly prepared in house are from an excellent nearby bakery. We found that after one of his wonderful breakfasts we could easily tour on foot until late afternoon when a short pub break was easily enough to carry us to dinner around 8 pm. Between advice from Peter and Martin Ribbens on what to see, where to eat and shop, the only down side is that most of us will not schedule enough time in Amsterdam to fit everything in on one trip. This is an experience best suited to social beings as Peter loves to share his city, the culture, and discuss events both grand and personal. We thouroughly enjoyed returning around 5/6 PM to refresh, discuss the day and plan the evening in the common living area.

Room Tip: The "Jack Russell" room is away from the street and a bit roomier. But both of the second...

Just returned home from three weeks in Italy and Amsterdam. Stayed at Boogaards for six nights and it was a wonderful experience. I am having serious Boogaards withdrawal as I sit in my kitchen this morning and no Peter to bring all those wonderful breakfast treats and great conversation! Peter is extremely knowledgeable about what to see and where to eat in Amsterdam. All his suggestions were great! Our room was lovely and I enjoyed getting up early and having coffee in the lovely living room awaiting yet another fantastic breakfast. Peter spoils his guests and his doggies are adorable and very friendly! Bravo, Peter and Tom,

My fiance and I stayed at Boogaard's Aug. 7-10, 2012. It was recommended by a friend and we had no idea what a treat was in store for us! We stayed in the Pug room and it was absolutely adorable, as well as impeccably clean. There is also a common area on the same floor which is to be shared with the other bedroom, however when we were there there was another couple in that room for only one night and we never encountered them. So basically, it felt like our own private living room, complete with comfy sofa, fireplace, coffeemaker and complimentary sodas and snacks. The location is perfect, near the train station and many restaurants and shops but just enough off the beaten track to make you feel like a local (and give you some peace & quiet). Peter, the owner, is incredibly hospitable and an excellent cook. Every breakfast we had there was top-notch and VERY generous (read: Bring your apetite!). Not to mention the welcome little baked treats he would present us each afternoon upon our return after a full day of sightseeing. He also offered up great insider tips for getting around the city and into all the very popular museums (very helpful)! All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend this charming little B&B. Peter, please never go back to NY- Amsterdam needs you! :)

Stayed five nights (Sep 2012) in the apartment. All the positive things said about Peter are true - he has tremendous knowledge and always willing to help. This location, on the edge of the Jordaan, is perfect for access to good restaurants and sits in a friendly neighbourhood away from the "tourist noise". It is also a short walk back towards the central canals and rail station. The apartment has everything we needed.... believe me when Peter says its well stocked with food to start you off I think the only thing we brought was milk! Each bedroom (with TV) has a good size bathroom which gave our daughter her own space. Internet was fast and extremely reliable. Given the opportunity to return to Amsterdam we would definitely stay again.
