Enjoy elegant, old-world Amsterdam at this historic, centrally located charmer

Just blocks from the historic, breathtaking Dam Square stands the Die Port van Cleve Hotel, a classic 121-room tribute to Dutch hospitality and cozy elegance. For both business and leisure travelers, the hotel offers excellent in-house comfort and cuisine in between Amsterdam excursions. Just steps from the Die Port van Cleve, guests can take in Magna Plaza's upscale shopping, while the dazzling Dam Square along with Amsterdam's wealth of architectural and cultural wonders are all within walking or biking distance.

Highlights
  • Classic, renowned in-house eatery, established in 1870
  • Elegant, historic in-house bar featuring traditional jenever and liquors
  • Central Amsterdam location, close to premium shopping, dining and sightseeing
Rooms

The Die Port van Cleve Hotel's 121 non-smoking rooms welcome guests with cozy yet modern decor, wood furnishings and accents of royal blue, burgundy and mustard for a sense of soothing elegance. Standard guest rooms come with either a twin or double bed, while the executive level business suites come with king beds. Suites also come with separate bedroom and living room quarters and two bathrooms.


The Die Port van Cleve's rooms all feature complimentary wired and Wi-Fi access, flat-screen cable TVs with On Demand entertainment (suites come with two TVs), along with laptop-accommodating safes.

Features

The 1880s architecture and design elements of Die Port van Cleve Hotel evoke old-world Dutch warmth and charm. While modern amenities like complimentary Wi-Fi offer convenience, it's touches like the Delft blue-tile frescoes from 1887 together with the fine liquors and jenever tastings at the hotel's elegant Bar De Blauwe Parade that provide authentic appeal at the Port van Cleeve Hotel. Succulent, deservedly renowned steaks (the hotel has served more than six million) and hearty Danish cuisine are on order at the Die Port van Cleve's welcoming Brasserie Du Poort. The property also provides tour desk, reception and laundry services.

Dining

Brasserie 'De Poort'
In the Brasserie 'De Poort' you can enjoy a combination of traditional Dutch and international cuisine, prepared with fresh ingredients daily. The restaurant is famous for its numbered steaks, which have been served here since 1870 and come with their own numbered certificate. The unique 'no-nonsense' style of the executive chef ensures a pure culinary adventure.
Bar 'De Blauwe Parade'
The authentic Bar-Bodega 'De Blauwe Parade', well known for its unique Delft Blue Frieze, is an institution in Amsterdam. For an aperitif, a joyful drink or perhaps an original gin tasting, Bar-Bodega 'De Blauwe Parade' is the place to be. The bar is also a great place for an informal diner.
Coffee Corner/ Bar 'De Hooiberg'
At Coffee corner/ Bar 'De Hooiberg' the staff will gladly welcome you for a relaxing cup of coffee, tea, appetizer or a digestive. With a street front location it is great to watch the people pass by in the busy centre of Amsterdam city. This historic bar is located next to the Brasserie 'De Poort' and was once part of the Heineken brewery, which shows from the wall frescoes and wooden floors. Guests can stop in for drinks or light snacks from late morning through early evening.

Terrible room stay - poor value for your money

Worst 4 night stay ever. Room is small and confined. No sound proofing in the room whatsoever can hear people walking on the creepy old floor as well as zooming car and motorcycle noises from the street all night long. The beds are extremely uncomfortable mattresses shows severe sagging in the middle and should have been replaced long ago. Staff didn't give a care nor apologize for the bed condition when reported.

PERFECT HOTEL IN CONVENIENT LOCATION

VERY CLOSE TO AMSTERDAM CENTRAL STATION WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE AND IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO DAM SQUARE. TOURISTE BUS (HOP IN HOP OFF) PASSES FROM OUTSIDE THE HOTEL, MOST OF ATTRACTION IN CLOSE BY. LOST OF SELCTION OF DIFERENT CUSINE, THE HOTEL ROOMS VERY CLEAN BUT COSY, BREAKFAST WAS ALSO AVAILABLE BUT WE DID NOT USE IT. THE BEDS ARE COMFORTABLE AND VERY GOOD ROOM SERVICE AND HOUSEKEEPING, SMOOTH CHECKIN AND VERY HELPFUL STAFF.DEFINATELY RECCOMEND THIS HOTEL.

Family city break

Cannot fault this hotel - central location - walking distance from train station & all tourist attractions. Room was spacious & spotlessly clean -top marks for the cleaning staff :-) Didn't have breakfast so can't comment but the bar was cosy and relaxed. Would highly recommend this hotel to family and friends and would definitely stay here again. Overall rating: Excellent

Mediocre Hotel in Prime Location

Die Port is only a ten minute walk from the central train station, a five minute tram ride from the Rijksmuseum and near many restaurants and other attractions. Unfortunately, this historic property is in need of major renovation. Our first room was dark and cramped; neither the Wi-Fi nor the TV worked. The very responsive staff moved us to a much nicer room with a working TV, but no heat (remedied quickly with a space heater). Apparently, the Wi-Fi works only in the lobby. We felt sorry for the staff who tried to be responsive but were obviously stymied by management that simply doesn't care about their guests' comfort and convenience.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The canal boat tours, while very touristy, still give patrons an unmatched view of Amsterdam's many canals and the harbour. You can save money if you buy your tickets at the hotel desk.

Short Break

We have stayed here a couple of times previously and this is a good hotel very nicely located. An easy walk from the main station and convenient for getting around. However there were two issues on this occasion. The city tax seems to be on an escalator. 6.84 euros the first day 8.34 the second and 14.48 the third. At this rate what is it after a week. The second issue was the room size. I think the smallest I have ever been in. You could not walk round the bed! Previously I have booked direct and had good sized rooms. No complaint about facilities and cleanliness.

Good for city break

I was greeted by very helpful friendly staff and found the concierge a mine of information happy to book restaurants suggest trips suitable for m y needs The location of hotel is ideal for all public transport I would say the general appearance is rather shabby certainly not 4 star needing a lot of TLC The breakfast buffet was fairly basic completely self service even to machine tea and coffee and paper mats on chipped shabby tables Again not 4 star But I did enjoy my stay and survived crossing the road!
