Expert review of Boogaard's Bed and Breakfast

A strong contender for Amsterdam's very best b & b in a private home.

Peter Boogaard, an opera singer by profession, has modernised his 17th-century house with panache. But what makes the b & b really special is his generous hospitality.

Location: 

Fantastic - on a very quiet street hidden away between the Singel and Herengracht canals, five minutes' walk from the Centraal Station.

Bedrooms: 

Pug and Jack Russell, the two bedrooms up on the second floor, have prints of dogs relating to their names on cushions, Persian rugs on boarded floors, wrought-iron beds, and smart black-and-white bathrooms. On the floor below lies a two-bedroom apartment of similar standard, with its own spacious sitting room. Ideal for a family or set of friends, it is let out for stays of three nights or more.

Public areas: 

Pug and Jack Russell share a big, relaxing sitting room, with leather armchairs and a sofa, piles of local literature, and a computer with (free) Internet access.

Eating and drinking: 

Guests rave about Peter's lavish breakfasts, which might include pancakes or banana fritters, and are sociable affairs, eaten round one table with other guests. The rates also include home-made cakes at teatime, and beer, soft drinks, and tea and coffee round the clock, in the guests' sitting room.

Service: 

Peter is interesting, chatty, a mine of information on good, local restaurants, and faultlessly helpful - he will even do your laundry for you at no extra charge.
