... were riding for transportation. Men were wearing anything from suit jackets, dress pants and dress shoes to t shirts and shorts, and everything in between. We saw women wearing, long skirts, short skirts, older women, young women, purses on shoulders, bags hanging down from the handle bars, and best of all ladies wearing all kinds of footwear. We saw just as many ladies wearing high heels and high wedge heels as we saw ballerina flats and just regular ...
... delightful time with them and exchanged phone numbers, e-mails and said our good-bys as they are leaving the ship at 6:00 am in the morning. We played one last game of spades & listened to wonderful music that was played on the piano by Tamas. Jan & I started out pretty well, but faded fast and lost again (for the 4th time) to the guys. Fun evening. We are all sorry the cruise is over, but it has been a blast.
... on didn't allow that so we walked to the city center instead. And, of course, during that walk it started to rain. Nothing crazy but since it was cold and windy, it wasn't exactly welcome.
We finally made it to the edge and found a shwarma joint, as you can tell we frequent these. This one was different then others we had been to. We were expecting a fast food type place where you get your food within a couple of minutes and you can leave. When we ordered here, the owner cooked ...

After a few hours of rest-ation, Laurence, Greg, Kim and Clayton showed up to get ready for the pub crawl that we had planned to go on that night.. I must say Claire, Kristy and I were not enthused by the whole thing. Anyway Laurence whined like a little girl, played the birthday card and forced us to join the pub crawl. There was a free drink at the first bar and then pre-mixed shots ...
... my favorite artists, so I thought it was absolutely fantastic! If only 'Starry Night" was there. The colors, texture, and brush strokes in his art are so unique and mesmerizing. The amount of people there was crazy. The pushing and shoving to get a picture was quite obnoxious. The museum was interesting too because it went through Van Gogh's stages as an artist and who inspired him. They would put Van Gogh's painting ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast Amsterdam
Great Place to Stay!
We went to Amsterdam in May and stayed at 2 different establishments. (I refuse to taint this review with the name of the other horrible place we stayed.) Boorgard's was simply perfect. The rooms were warm and welcoming, and the location is easily accessible. Peter is a very welcoming host and knowledgable about the best places to eat. The tapas place he recommended to us around the corner was a steal as the food was divine and the price was more than reasonable. Also, if you are traveling with another couple, and stay in the rooms on the 2nd floor, you practically have your own apartment with a kitchen well stocked with snacks and beer. I can't wait to go back!!
Boogaard's can't be beat!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Boogaard's bed and breakfast as a last stop "treat" after 5 weeks of backpacking across europe. This fantastic, adorable, charming, and fun B&B was the perfect way for us to end our trip. Peter was absolutley the nicest, and most helpful host I could possibly imagine. My boyfriend and I almost felt as if we were staying with an old friend. He lent us a map and guide book as soon as we walked in. He offered to have our laundry done, and let us barrow a few of his dvds (he has over 400 in various languages). Peter speaks perfect English, has excellent suggestions for places to see and go, and on top of that, he cooks the most delicious breaksfasts that I have ever tasted. It's like being hosted by a gourmet!!!
The B&B itself is lovely and cute. We stayed in the dalmation room, which was spacious and had a large bay window. Across the hall was the immaculately clean bathroom, which we shared with the room next door. We never even saw our neightbors, however, so this was not a problem. At one end of the hall on this floor is a room with a laptop, and FREE wireless internet. on the other end of the hall is a small, but full kitchen, which Peter stocks with snacks and beverages (also FREE). Even a few beers! Upstairs there is a lovely deck where you can enjoy the peaceful evening air.
If this wasn't enough, the location is excellent. It is a close walk to the Vondelpark and the Liezeplain (sp?) which is a very fun area with lots of shopping, bars, and restaurants. I couldn't possibly recommend this place more. The only downfall is that there is no elevator, and the stairs in front of the building are steep. This was no problem for my boyfriend and I, but it probably isn't ideal for an elderly couple.
To say the least, this was the BEST bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. Peter is a PHENOMENAL host, the rooms are beautiful, immaculately clean, and the place is in a great central location. For the price this has some of the best value I have ever spent money on. Men, this place was very affordable, Women, the place is beautiful, comfortable and clean. The rooms come w/ a kitchen, which if you are in the upper more expensive rooms Peter makes breakfast for you, we stayed in the lower Dalmation room for 90 Euro a night, but this includes a kitchen which Peter fully stocked w/ crepes, pancakes, meats, cheeses, juice, milk, etc, along w/ cupboards stocked w/ cereals, coffee, tea, fruit, and nutella. This is more than a bed and breakfast, it is a bed and unlimited meal coupled w/ a concierge who could not be nicer and a huge dvd collection for guests to watch free of charge. This is not a place for the red light districtors, while it is about a 20 min walk, if all you want to do is party, this isn't the place, but if you are a couple and want to see all of amsterdam, this couldn't be more perfect. I have pictures, which i will post asap. I never expected to go to Amsterdam and come home refreshed like i was on a retreat, but that was certainly the case here.
We loved Boogaard's
My wife and I just returned from our first trip to Amsterdam and we were delighted with our choice of Boogaard's for a B&B. Peter, the owner, was a most gracious host and the location was quite nice for walking to the Museums and the Leidseplein and Museumplein. He spoke perfect English and is quite knowledgable about the city. We actually walked almost everywhere in the city from Boogaard's, so the location is wonderful.
We stayed in the Dalmation room, which allowed us to make our own meals. The kitchen was stocked with wonderful Dutch foods and bread (I loved the pancakes and Nutella!)
Peter has done a marvellous job of restoring the rooms at the B&B. Everything is clean and in good taste. It was an added bonus to have a reading/entertainment room separate from our bedroom. We watched a couple of DVD's from a collection that is provided for free.
For people who like a little extra excercise, this is a great place (the stairs up to the room are fairly steep).
Overall, we highly recommend Boogaard's to anyone who wants a nice place to stay in Amsterdam.
The Best Ever!
Having traveled and stayed in many different hotels, hostels and B&B's all over the world, I can honestly say that our stay in Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast was better than any hotel yet!
The beautiful rooms and cleaner than clean bathoom was nothing compared to the personal attention we received every day of our stay. We were treated more like old friends than guests, with unexpected niceties such as candles and bath salts hand delivered by the owner because he wanted to make sure that my bath was a luxurious one to the offer of tea and snacks while watching one of the many movies available in our our room, the stay was a pure delight and we hated to leave.
The apartment is situated on a nice quiet street within walking distance to just about everything, including the Museum area.
Breakfast was delicious (Dutch Pancakes) with a different menu daily and more than enough food to last you well through the normal lunch hour.
Peter, Tomasz and Pepe the Jack Russell were the most incredible hosts and we can't wait to come back!
I booked Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast because of the reasonable rates and the great ratings on TRIPADVISOR. After travelling through 5 countries and 8 cities (in less than 3 weeks)...I have to say that Peter's B&B was the BEST!
The rooms were very comfortable and inviting. I stayed in the Jack Russell Room...which overlooks the rooftop terrace (where we gathered to eat and drink!). The bed was extremely comfortable...I slept better there than I do at home! lol.
The best part of our stay was Peter. He is so knowledgable and helpful! This was the first time we ever visited the Netherlands...and Peter was able to help us by make suggestions and plans. He prepares breakfast himself. The first morning, we had a breakfast that consisted of eggs, fresh-baked bread, ham, cheese, cake, fruits, coffee, tea and juice. YUMMY!!! The next morning was a real treat...Peter made DUTCH PANCAKES...they were to die for! (I need to email him for the recipe) We also had bacon and cakes and fresh strawberries and honeydew melon. You had to roll me out of the dining room because I ate so much! He really spoiled us...because I was comparing his breakfast to all the other hotels and bed and breakfasts...and they just weren't the same.
Did I also mention that they did my laundry?? (no extra charge!) He also lent us a laptop to connect to the internet in our room (no extra charge!) He also had prepaid cell phones for us to use!!! and so many DVD's!!!
I stayed at a couple 4 star hotels in Germany, France and England...but I have to say that Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast beats them all HANDS DOWN!!! I definitely recommend Boogaard's B and B to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
My mom never trusts me to do anything, so when i persuaded her away from the hotels in amsterdam to stay in aB&B she was worried-
however within 30 seconds of being in the apartment she was singing a different tune...
The decor is stylish, luxurious and welcoming. The rooms are a perfect size, immaculatly clean- the bathroom facilites are the same and came well stocked with everything you've forgotten to pack. The kitchen on the floor came in handy as well as the array of complimentary treats hidden away.
Peter was always happy to help out, pointing us in the direction of some lovely restaurants hidden away from the tourist traps. He was very interesting to talk to about himself and about amsterdam making us feel as though we were staying in amsterdam, not just another hotel anywhere in the world
The location was a bonus the leidsplein is a few minutes walk away, and so are a whole bundle of tram stops- but we found it easy enough to walk throughout most of the city.
We cant recommned it enough.. if your looking for, good location, clean rooms, a happy and helpful host, a beautiful room and flat (with a roof terrace), a decent sized bathroom and more then this will more than provide....
(the words "pancakes for breakfast..." topped it off)
This is truly the best b&b we ever stayed in Europe! The location is very safe, being close to all Amsterdam sights and museums and the area itself is very pretty with lots of quiet canals, picturesque sreets and little bars. The breakfast was delicious, our room was very cosy and beautifully furnished and the general atmosphere in the house - very warm and friendly with a very caring host. Next time we are in Amsterdam we will definitely try to stay there!
This palce was found at the end of a listing in the Ryanair website under hostels. It is in fact a serviced apartment with a difference. It is very well located near the Leidseplein and therefore very easy to access by tram from Centraal. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are much better than most 4 star hotels. The service was superb and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. For the price (45 euros per person per night) this was the best value I have had in Europe for years. I will definitely be going again.
A fantastic B&B
Having never been in Amsterdam, my wife and I feel extremely fortunate to have found such a wonderful place to stay as we did with Peter in Boogaard's Bed & Breakfast. The home is in a terrific location, accessible to public transportation, museums, shopping and restaurants (close to Leidseplein), and it was almost as comfortable as home. Peter is a gracious, fun, most hospitable host and provided not just great service and attention to every detail, but helped make our time in Amsterdam the fun time it was. We would absolutely stay there again.
