Four years ago when fashion designer Analik Brower opened her first B&B over her shop in Antwerp, it got a major reception among a wide swath of style setters, many of whom were friends who passed the word. In September 2007 she followed up with three rooms above and one below her Amsterdam boutique-exhibition space in the city’s Negen Straatjes area. The decor combines bare-bones charm—single walls covered in a Delftware-style toile; sleek oak beds and vintage chandeliers; and floors layered with shiny white paint—with modern conveniences like heated bathroom floors and computer-equipped rooms complete with 20-inch Apple iTVs. Breakfast can be taken in the surprisingly spacious apartments, all of which include a living room and open kitchen.

Room to book: The top-floor suite—when it’s available (Brouwer’s boyfriend, a film and commercial director, sometimes uses it as an editing room)— has original foot-wide plank floors, a stainless-steel kitchenette, and two walls of windows.

Insider Tip: Analik’s categoric knowledge of all things Amsterdam combined with her exquisite taste makes her better than any guide book. Ask if she’s got five minutes to tell you what her favorite places are these days (and take notes).
