My Auntie's Cake is the cake bakery or "parlor" at street level below this B and B. It is just a colorful fantasy of cakes! A visual feast, but even better are the actual cakes! The place in the Pijp is listed in the National Geographic Traveller's Amsterdam book, but I can't find a listing on Trip Advisor just for... More

Confortable and very clean rooms in the heart of the city, very close to the Heineken Experience, walking distance from the most famous museums of Amsterdam. Below the B&B you can also delight of a delicious piece of cake! For sure it will be my sleep adres during the next visit to Amsterdam. I recommend!!

I don't understand what's the sceret of this place reading other reviews. First of all it is a bed and breakfast without a real breakfast. There was some cheese and breakfast products in the kitchen but I wouldn't call that breakfast (see my photos). The location is not perfect about 15-20 minutes walk to the city center. Yes there is... More

Cake under my pillow was a delight to stay at for my daughter and I. Beds were comfy, well stocked fridge (to share in common kitchen), clean rooms, washroom, with shower and toilet, was a bonus, and the staff and management were friendly and helpful for directions, etc. The very narrow and steep stairs up to the rooms were always...

Stayed for a week at "cake under my pillow" it is a very nice, clean B&B. it is located a short tram ride from Central Station and near a small gallery district. It is atop the "taart van m'n tante" which provides a coffee and cake voucher to guests; a very nice touch as the cakes are world famous and... More

Cake under my pillow is a bed & breakfast situated on the second floor of an ancient building just south of the centre of Amsterdam in the "Oud zuid"-area. The Heineken Experience is just around the corner and the Albert Cuyp market and the Rijksmuseum just a few streets away. There is no elevator, so you should be aware that... More

We loved our 3 night stay at Cake Under My Pillow. Completely unique and light hearted fun place that is very handy to the tram. The daily treat of cake and coffee was absolutely deliciously good and a welcome break after an afternoon seeing Amsterdam. The staff were great, welcoming and helpfull. The stairs were a challenge on occasion, but... More

My husband and I stayed here over New Years and had a great experience. If you are a fan of chain hotels, or want luxurious accommodation, then this is probably not the place for you. But, if you are looking for an affordable, unique hotel experience in a hip area with a real neighborhood feel, then you're likely to enjoy... More

Difficult to imagine a more relaxing place. The green room is large and airy, with fluffy down comforters that look like meringue. Street noise is nonexistent when the windows are closed, but it can be chattery during open-window weather. Delicious fixings in the kitchen, candies in the living room, and best of all, daily coupons for cake and coffee! I... More

My husband and I stayed in the orange room. It was small by most American standards, but cozy for us. It had it's own bathroom with a shower. The bed and linens were very comfortable. The staff at the bakery downstairs were very friendly and helpful. The best accommodations was the all-access kitchen with the fully stocked refrigerator and pantry... More
