Today we navigated the Dutch train system and a local bus and took a day trip into the countryside to see Kinderdijk, which is a UNESCO site of the largest number of original windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills were built around 1740 to drain the water from that region (20%) of the Netherlands is below sea level).
To get there from Amsterdam we had to take a train to Utrecht and then a bus for over an hour to ...
... at the Rijksmuseum in time for lunch at the cafe, a Dutch 'ploughman's platter of typical meats, cheeses, breads with relish and that heavenly dark yellow Dutch butter. (In the cafe too, as well as in the bookstore there are enormous displays of fresh tulips in elaborate Delft tulipiere.) This trip we visit the third floor where there is an early bi-plane, a De Stijl exhibit, a modest collection of Karel Appel (I learn that I was not too far off when I said that the image in our ...
... 8221; I’ve noticed that just about everybody here is incredibly friendly, and I’m lucky that the word for “hello” in Dutch is the same as in English (same case for “sorry”. What a great language.). Just before noon, I stopped for a coffee on a barge café in the middle of a canal and then grabbed an ice cream (sense a pattern?) to fuel further wanderings. I cringe at using the word because I ...
... I'm not the best tour leader, and then when we got to the highway that goes under the water we realised we weren't allowed to ride down there and that there was no way across the water so we headed back the way we came to Vondelpark.
In the park we found the most amazing jungle gym which we climbed up and then walked along the beams high above the ground and encased in rope so we couldn't fall. When we were done being little kids we headed out ...
It is common knowledge throughout the world, that in Amsterdam you may just enter a 'coffee shop' and buy marijuana legally. I really didn't know much more than that, why would I? But it's a fascinating trade even for one who doesn't partake. Unbelievably, the Dutch are the second biggest coffee drinkers. They drink no less than 140 litres of coffee a year on average. That's 3.2 cups a day and nearly double the beer they drink. Ironically there are 700 'coffee ...

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!!
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!!!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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-
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.
