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.

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.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

We walked everywhere, including to the Rijksmuseum, Rembrandt House, Anne Frank House, and Resistance Museum. While some, like the Rijksmuseum might be too far for some people, it is doable on foot.

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!!

Great hotel and Location

Would definitely stay here again. Great Dutch ambiance in the old Heineken Brewery. Right near the Dam. Breakfast is a little expensive.

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.
