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.

Dissapointment in Amsterdam

Although we had fully prepaid our room two months before arriving, we were surprised when we got there with the news that they had overbooked the hotel and we had to stay the first night in a different hotel way out of town. Therefore, out of our two night stay, we spent each in a different hotel and had to spend our little time in Amsterdam moving from one hotel to the other rather than enjoying the city sights. Never received any apologies from the manager nor any compensation for our inconvenience.

Die Port van Cleve, July -12

First of all, NOT really a four star hotel. So if you wish to stay in a true 4 star hotel with matching service, rooms and overall quality, this is not your best choice. Rooms are small'ish with basic equipment. During our stay it seemed that pretty much everything was broken... the elevator, air conditioning, safe, water boiler etc. Location is superb, and if you mostly use your hotel room to sleeping and showering, like me and my friend did, you' ll be happy with Die Port Van Cleve. Rooms were cleaned everyday and the staff was friendly most of the time. Remember city tax which you have to pay when you check out! Slightly overpriced 3 star hotel with excellent location.

family trip

clean hotel, friendly front desk staff. We were a family of seven travelling and had three rooms in same hall. All rooms were clean and the wifi was the best we had in Europe! Location is perfect for families, close to Dam square but far enough from Red Light to keep younger kids away. Would recommend this hotel

Die Port van Cleve Hotel Amsterdam

The location is absolutely superb right across from the Royal Palace. You don't need a taxi to get around and I was able to visit museums, red light district and various coffee shops all on foot. There are plenty of large shopping plazas, restaurants, and small gift shops. The staff at the hotel were helpful, however they tended to assume that I knew certain things about the way of life on Holland, which I did not, so don't be afraid to ask questions. The amenities were ok, although Internet was not always available and I had to go to the adjacent restaurant to get ice (no ice machine on the floor).

During the week the bars in the Red Light District close anywhere from 2330 to 0030. On the weekend they stay open much later, until 0500 so leave early during the week to make sure you are not rushing from bar to bar.

Relative to what?

From what I heard from the locals, hotels in Amsterdam tend to be a bit lacking in general, and this was no exception. The price was high, the air conditioning throughout the hotel and the main elevator were being upgraded for the duration of our stay with no prior notification, and the room was cramped. On the other hand, the space there was was quite well utilized, the location is amazing, the room was clean and the staff were quite good.

Good hotel in Amsterdam center

This hotel has the perfect location in the center of Amsterdam, close to all the important attractions. Close by also are good restaurants and good shopping. The buffet breakfast in the morning was excellent. There can be some noise heard during the night from outside, my room was in the back of the hotel near a bar. However, I would stay at this hotel again.

great city, great hotel!

The hotel was very nice and perfectly located. Friendly staff, top notch restaurant on site, bar, snacks..pretty much everything you could need. Shopping, coffee shops, red light district all within 5 minutes of walking. The rooms are a bit small, but you're not going to spend much time there anyway. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Location

Die Port Van Cleve has an excellent location just off Dam Square. Easy to find from Central Station even by foot. Near by grocery store provided snacks and sandwiches for a nice compliment to eating out. Located on a "trolley street" for easy transportation to anywhere in the city. A bit pricey for the room which was close quarters, but how much time are you going to spend in the room when Amsterdam is just outside your front door?

Splendid city centre hotel

I travlled to Amsterdam in January and have visited the city on many occasions. This hotel was ideally located in the city centre and I was given a lovely first floor room overlooking Nieuwezijds Vorburgwal. The staff were very pleasant and the amenities were top class. Would stay again.
