“Amsterdam Gem”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

All of the excellent reviews are true. Peter and Tomas are charming hosts who make you feel as if you are family. Delicious food, comfortable rooms and great location. What more can you ask? I would never think of staying anywhere else when in Amsterdam!

Four of us stayed in the apartment, two double rooms, lounge, kitchen. We were made to feel welcome, and "at home" the moment we arrived. The fridge was generously stocked with cold meats, cheese, soft drinks, beer, eggs, bacon, bread, cake, teas, coffee.... Everything you would need for a few days without the chore of shopping, and more. The lounge and beds were very comfortable. The host, Peter, was very friendly and made excellent suggestions for eating out. The location is on the edge of Jordaan district, quiet and pretty, yet within 10 minutes stroll of the Central Station and main drag. I unreservedly recommend this place, and it will be my first choice on future visits without a doubt.

Room Tip: The apartment is so well stocked with food, I think it has the advantage over the B&B.

You won't forget your stay at Boogaard's. I felt as if I been to a relative's house for a few days when I left. Comfortable room with soft (yes soft bed in Europe) bed, sitting area, snacks and drinks the fridge, so many little things provided, I'm sure we didn't notice half of them. We had the room facing the front. We needed the window open for the unseasonable heat we had while staying. A fan in the room kept us comfortable. There was no steet noise to keep us awake. Peter's breakfasts were unbelievable. His advice on where to go for meals was so good, all within close walking distance. He went out of his way to help us.

I wouldn't recommend this, and probably most B&B's in older homes in Amsterdam, for the mobility challenged. If we return to Amsterdam, we'll be back.

We stayed at Boogaard's for 3 nights in July and can honestly say that it was the hi-light of our 4 week holiday. You will not find a better host than Peter! His generosity, professionalism and sense of fun made this such a memorable experience. The breakfasts really are as good as they look too. Great location and fantastic house in such a lovely suburb.

We stayed for 3 nights in the self catering apartment, which gave us the full benefits of Peter's kind and generous hospitality with a little extra flexibility. The location is perfect within a very pretty and convenient part of the city. Our bedrooms and sitting room were beautifully decorated and full of extra little touches that help to make a stay special. We were with my student daughter and friend and all of us would like to return to both Amsterdam and to Boogaard's.

Room Tip: The apartment is a good option if you travelling as a party of 4

if you are in need of a lovely apartment to rent in amsterdam, look no further. i took a group of five women of all ages---from 11 to 75 years---on an 11 day trip of europe. first stop was amsterdam. we needed a good rest and a quiet place to start our journey and peter's 2 bedroom apt in amsterdam was the perfect spot. he was a pleasure to meet...friendly, helpful and full of love for his city and home. we adored the apartment which was clean, fresh and inviting and had just enough space for us to spread out and enjoy. the kitchen was stocked with goodies when we arrived...even a birthday cake for my daughter and beer for the ladies on a hot summer day. he gave us city maps, advice on where to go and eat...tram help and even called us taxis when we needed. i cant say enough about how lovely he was and how perfect the apt was for us. we used hotels in the other countries we visited and nothing came close to the apt. please take the time to check out his website and lovely home.

Everything about Boogaard's bed and breakfast is the best. The overall ambiance is welcoming with all the comforts you could wish for. The location is convenient to all things in Amsterdam. The house is a historic gem. The rooms are delightful. Breakfast is amazing with different treats every morning. Other delicious snacks appear later in the day. Best of all is your gracious host, Peter, who is an encyclopedia of knowledge about all things Dutch and so much more. While catering to all your needs to make you comfortable, he also can help you plan terrific days enjoying the city and its surroundings. We stayed six days at Boogaards and highly recommend making your reservations as early as possible.
