Concierge.com's insider take:
In the heart of the Pijp neighborhood, the cake shop De Taart van m'n Tante (My Auntie's Cake) is much loved for its style, its taste, and, let's be frank, its kitsch. The owners' B&B takes it to the next level—actually up two stories. The three rooms were stripped down to the floorboards and painted blue (as in Delft), green (dog motif), or orange (for the saffron hues of Asia). Rooms have orthopedic beds, wireless Internet access, and thick windows to keep out the noise of the busy neighborhood below. Guests get a voucher for coffee and cake downstairs (try the poppy seed cake or Dutch apple pie). And there's a common kitchen in case you want your breakfast at 6…p.m.
