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.

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.

Property 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.

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.

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!

Atmospheric

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!

Food supermarket within 100 metres of hotel. Try La Place attached to V&D department store near flower market for fantastic range of self service food - surely something for everyone there!

Great hotel

We stayed 3nights and we're very happy. Fantastic location just minutes walk from Central Station. Lovely hotel with a lot of history and style . The staff are extremely polite and helpful. Our room was clean everyday and the bathroom modern. Our only complaint is that we had 2 single beds pushed together that needed replacing - although the mattresses had been covered with a thicker layer, the originals underneath dipped quite significantly in ether middle! But overall a good stay and we would stay again.

great honeymoon lodging

We booked this hotel online and had a WONDERFUL experience. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and impeccably clean. The WiFi helped us to stay in touch with friends and family stateside. I would stay here again on trips to Amsterdam.
