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 rooms welcome guests with cozy yet modern décor, 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.

Good hotel in great location right next to Dam Square in Amsterdam. Needed Superior room to fit an extra bed in for our daughter - it was a good size with good bathroom. Didn't use restaurant as breakfast was extra and expensive. There is a food supermarket very nearby, so bought fresh food there for breakfast. Hotel bar was very atmospheric. Staff were very helpful - would stay again!

Meer Liefde

Hotel is located in very good location in close reach of everything. amenities in room are perfect. I had a superior room and would recommend that. The only two items that needed improvement was WIFI was weak and dropped very often. Add a repeater on each floor to increase strength or add a switch on each floor. Most staff were nice except for one who forgot the guest are on vacation they flew hrs across the ocean and are tired. If you have no room ready its fine but maybe hotel can offer a drink or a discount to lunch or a nice kind you know what we will try our best to help. I told them i worked in a hotel before and was not kidding you treat your guest kindly with hope not dry character. Yes check in is at 2PM many hotels accomodate because they know flights don't follow that and you check out way earlier anyways. For the rest its a great hotel

good way to end our vacation

Location was great and staff was very helpful in recommending and helping us get reservations. Use their recommended restaurant list it would be nice if they had a weight room and also for a single sheet for those who don't like the duvet.

Disappointed

We were especting something magical - give the hotel's history and promotional copy - but were disappointed. The location is excellent - close to Dam Square and the shops & restaurants as well as being in walking distance of 'must-sees' like Anne Frank's House. Our room was extraordinarily small: my wife and I kept bumping into each other when moving around the bed or trying to get clothes from the wardrobe. This really spoiled the whole hotel experience for us. We had intended dining in the well-promoted Restaurant but when we arrived there were just two tables occupied and a dreadful lack of atmosphere. Instead we had the 'numbered steak' in the bar - which had marginally more activity. The staff generally were pleasant and helpful - but the items mentioned above meant a special birthday surprise fell flat on its face.

Ideally situated !

Had a 2 night stopover. My cousin was allowed to share my room at very little cost! Staff were excellent, even helped this 76yr old with her wifi ! The hotel is beautifully situated near everything, we had a wonderful 2 days stay. Would certainly recommend to anyone. High standards throughout. We had a very hectic day with 2 coach and a canal trip, but a great way to see Amsterdam. Even took a walk around the Red Light District at night! Very safe, and a real eye opener for 2 old ladies! Only thing wrong...not enough time, MUST come back again soon!

Red light district is a must for newcomers to Amsterdam. Also a canal trip at night is wonderful. Walking shoes, an umbrella and dressing in layers is a must but fun!

Great start to a vacation

This hotel was great! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The dinner in the hotel restaurant was excellent, with great service. The hotel is conveniently located in downtown, an easy 20-minute walk from Central Train Station. The room was small (some might say cramped) but well-equipped and very clean. We were very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Amsterdam.

Perfect Stop

Aside from the tram track construction happening directly in front of the hotel, it was perfect. My 11-year old son and I walked from Centraal station to the hotel with our baggage - easy and close!! It is the perfect location for sight seeing, shopping, museums, etc. the room was small but comfortable, extremely clean, and perfect for jet-lagging travelers. The staff is fabulous and the breakfast was delicious. Great location, great staff, clean, lovely. Enjoy your stay!!
