“A Wonderful Oasis in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

My wife and I stayed at Boogaard's over this past Christmas and it was outstanding in every way. Peter was a great host, from his delicious breakfasts to his unsurpassed knowledge of Amsterdam. We routinely sat at breakfast for over an hour, luxuriating over the food and delighting in the company of Peter and the other guests. Peter gave us great dining tips and enough sense of direction that we took public transportation or walked everywhere in the city.

The room we had was very comfortable, clean and quiet and to top it off there was always a great baked good to return to after a long day touring Amsterdam.

We will only stay at Boogard's on our next visit.

We stayed at Boogaard's B&B for 7 nights and enjoyed everything about it. The location was great making it easy to get anywhere in the city. Peter was the perfect host, a great cook, and very helpful. Every morning we had a large wonderful breakfast and every afternoon Peter would make sure we had a pastry treat. Peter and Tom both went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam. We would definitely stay at Boogaard's again.

We rented the apartment of the B&B for the five of us. It doesn't come with the 'breakfast' part of B&B (we knew that ahead of time, no surprise there); however, the kitchen of the apartment was very well stocked allowing us to easily fend for ourselves without needing to go shopping.
The owner, Peter, was very nice and helpful when we needed to ask for directions or pointers on where to go, see, and eat. He directed us to some very nice restaurants nearby. He was very helpful with other questions that we had as well. When we first arrived he gave us the grand tour of the entire building and his renovations; a very interesting insight into Amsterdam housing!
The only vague drawback was perhaps street noise; but that isn't really a specific problem with this establishment. Even just a few pedestrians talking loudly would be noticeable. But this was very intermittent and frankly easily overlooked.
The beds were very comfortable; the sitting area of the apartment was very nice; did I mention the well stocked kitchen? The rooms were very clean. The location is an easy walk from the train station (about 10-15 minutes). It was also within walking distance of many attractions itself, or rather close to public transit lines (i.e. back to the train station area).
We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The apartment was on the 1st floor (i.e. 2nd story); the actual B&B rooms were on the next/2nd f...

Four of us stayed at the apartment of Peter Boogaard for 4 wonderful nights. The reviews that we read before booking this B&B are totally right - this is a brilliant place, with excellent personal service by the owner himself. Although we were in the apartment, and not in the bed and breakfast rooms, we still got lots of goodies in the fridge, additional cakes, a welcome drink - all as a genuine welcoming gesture.
The house itself was stunning with loads of christmas decorations, lights, and more. A real festive spirit to start our pre-Christmas holiday.
The apartment is totally equipped with everything you may need, and the beds have more cushions than you can cope with - a real "plus" for my wife. We all cuddled up on the chairs and sofa each evening, as if we were in our own living room.
Peter's knowledge of Amsterdam is better than any guidebook we read (he has lots of them stacked on shelves in the living room), and you should ask him about Indonesian restaurants - fabulous!
What else can we say? Just go and see for yourself!

I stayed at boorgaard's in November 2013. Our host peter is a lovely man who made us feel very welcome.

He baked us some lovely breakfasts such as home made croissants.

The bedrooms were nice and a reasonable size for a 400 year old building in Amsterdam. Loved the sitting room between the 2 bedrooms as well. If you're lucky, you can meet Peter and tom's badger!

Peter is awesome! A fantastic host, a wonderful chef, and a fount of tourist knowledge. The property is well decorated, impeccably clean and it is a vibrant community of people coming and going interacting with the locals. Plus their two Jack Russells are quite entertaining as they protect the perimeter from dangerous postal incursions and menacing dogs and cats passing by in the little street.

Be prepared to climb the typically Dutch-style stairs.

A very highly recommended adventure in B&Bing! And Peter is moving the B&B to a new location in January, so I look forward to seeing that also, as the plans look marvellous.

Room Tip: Two words: Good shoes. And that applies for going about Amstersdam in general.

Boogaard's is a great B and B in a wonderful location. Our lovely room faced a charming and quiet street and I enjoyed people watching from our window. We also shared a beautiful sitting room with the one other room on our floor. There is a fridge in an alcove stocked with drinks, wine, a couple of beers and coffee and tea making things. Peter is a gracious and friendly host who goes out of his way to make you feel at home and get the most out of Amsterdam. I can't say enough about the extra care he provided--his restaurant suggestions were excellent and his suggestions about museums spot on. Thank you, Peter, for suggesting the Museum of Bags and Purses and The Yellow Bike Tour. He is a fabulous baker and his breakfasts and afternoon treats in the sitting room were one of the highlights of our stay. We spend 4 nights at Boogaards and I wish it could have been longer. Peter is friendly and a great story teller, who knows the Amsterdam and America well. I hope we can return some day soon. Best location, best host, best breakfast, best attention to detail! Emily and John
