We were attending a conference and stayed a couple extra days in Amsterdam. As our family was 5 adults and one infant we were looking for an apartment close to the city center. Boogard's 2 bedroom apartment definitely fit the bill. Although a sitdown breakfast was not included, the apartment kitchen was well stocked and ready to go for our own private breakfasts when we arrived. Peter checked us in himself and gave us a tour of the building and a history of the city and the Jordaan area.
Briefly, the apartment has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom. The rooms are small but tastefully decorated. The kitchenette had a microwave, stove, refridgerator, diahwasher and coffee maker. This was all most people wil need. The common area between the bedrooms had a couch and two chairs with fresh flowers and a table with a laptop for guest use. The staircase up to the apartment is narrow and steep, but common for most in Amsterdam. Those with mobility issues may have trouble as there is no elevator.
Peter's welcoming and friendly personality immediately puts you at ease and enhances the charming surroundings. One drawback to the apartment is not being able to enjoy sitdown breakfast with Peter and the guests in the lovely breakfast room.
A nice touch was Peter's offer to do laundry for us, which was a generous and appreciated gesture. His helpful suggestions were also great for sightseeing. He also booked several restaurants for us that we were unable to do from home before we left.
Overall, Boogard's was an excellent choice and we have no hesitation in highly recommending it for a nice stay in Amsterdam. We would also suggest the smaller rooms for the full B&B experience.
