We are celebrating over ten years of being one of Amsterdam's most highly rated Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam with a move to a new location. Our newly renovated home is located in Amsterdam’s scenic canal district on Pieter Jacobszstraat, a quiet picturesque street just a short walk from Centraal Station. Pieter Jacobszstraat lies close to one of Amsterdam’s oldest and most enchanting canals in the heart of the old city and is close to one of the oldest universities in the Netherlands.
Our new home is located on a private street (no cars or traffic ), just a block south of the Dam Square and the King's Palace and just west of the Sofitel legend The Grand hotel ( one of Amsterdam's most prestigious hotels). Our new home was built in the 18th century, and while it retains great charm and character; it has all the modern conveniences of a 21st century home.
In Boogaard’s BnB our luxurious romantic bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and queen size beds are located on first floor with access to a wet and desert bar. Each roomy bedroom has a large flat screen television, seating area with comfortable leather chairs, writing desk complete with a laptop with free wireless internet, beautiful antique armoires and a bookcase filled with guide books and maps. Guest have access to the wet and desert bar filled with free soft drinks plus tea and coffee service.
For the first time we are offering central air-conditioning in our rooms to ensure the perfect sleep during the summer months. The rooms are decorated very much in a classic but comfortable style that Peter has become know for and will have luxurious larger bathrooms with large walk -in shower with rain shower feature, marble wash basins , heated towel racks and a roof top terrace where you can enjoy the view of the old city; relaxing in our beautiful deck chairs around our roof top garden and enjoying the outside wet bar.

You have private access with your own keys. We offer free laundry service, maps and guidebooks to all of our guests. Your en-suite bathroom is supplied with fresh towels daily, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, hand cream, Tissues and a hair dryer.
We are still close to all the main tourist attractions and still just a 10 minute walk from the popular Jordaan quarter, famous for its many restaurants, cafés, galleries and shops. On Saturdays, there is wonderful open-air market with the organic market in the large square in front of the Noorderkerk, and the larger, general goods portion of the market is just a short half-block away on the Lindengracht.
Just North a few blocks north is the market square named Nieuwmarkt, has been a centre for commerce and socialising in Amsterdam since the 17th century. Created by filling in the surrounding canals, the square's location just inside the old city gate made it a popular spot for traders and shoppers looking for fresh produce. Today, Nieuwmarkt still holds a daily market as well as an organic fare market on Saturdays, but arguably its biggest draw is the amount of true dutch cafés and restaurants that surround it, making this square a perfect place to spend a sunny day sitting on a terrace.
The Waag which is a stately building Dominates the square and means the Weigh House. This was originally St. Anthony's Gate, and was a major entry point to the city before the old city walls were torn down. Since then it has been a weigh house, a guild hall, a museum and is famous as the location where Rembrandt painted The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp.
Nieuwmarkt has traditionally always been a market square, and that tradition continues today. Throughout the week, stalls can be found usually on the west side of the square. On the saturdays , there is a lively market, selling organic fruit and vegetables and the antiques on sunday with its selection of clothing and homemade decorations.
Just west of the Nieuwmarket , one will find Amsterdam's chinatown and the buddhist temple making it the perfect place to enjoy Chinese, Malaysian , Indonesian, Vietnamese and Thai restaurants. Most of these Asian restaurants must not be missed when visiting Amsterdam.
All of Amsterdam’s most visited attractions are easily accessible by foot or by public transportation. The Anne Frank House, Jordaan, Westerkerk, Noorderkerk, Dam Square and King’s Palace are all within a few minutes walk. The Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Historical Museum, Leidseplein, and Flower Market are all easily reached on foot or by tram. Tram and bus lines are located just a four minute walk from Boogaard’s.
In our family we have two Jack Russells named Pepe and Curly. Pepe is at thirteen years old still playful, sweet and very friendly. Curly is our new addition, aptly named for his curly coat, and at six is full of energy yet a very sweet dog too. Come and spend a few days in beautiful Amsterdam with our family.
Please keep in mind that Boogaard’s is a non-smoking establishment.
