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.

Perfect!

Only a short walk from the Amsterdam Central Train Station. Right next to the Red Light District. We stayed a total of 4 nights here and we enjoyed this hotel. Rooms are clean and very cute. Staff was always friendly and helpful. We were very appreciative of the staff being friendly considering we had problems with rude employees at the train station and the airport.

Great Location and good service

The location of the Die Port Van Clev was wonderful, right off Dam Square and within walking distance to all major sites(for those who like or want to walk). If you prefer to ride a bike that is the best way to get around Amsterdam. Everyone rides bikes and you can rent. Bathroom was spotless but the room carpet and chairs were stained and not very inviting. No dresser and very little hanging space for clothes. The staff was always helpful and the dining and bar service was very good. I would stay there again however I would upgrade from twin beds(double) and try for a larger room and hopefully cleaner. Being in the heart of Amsterdam was wonderful and we did not have to use a taxi at all during our 6 day stay.

The front desk was excellent and accomodating with all information needed. The hotel is in a prime spot. The location was good enough so that I didn't mind the fact that the place wasn't the cleanest.

Very poor value

Stay elsewhere. While the location is good, there are dozens of options with as good a location. If dirty rooms, shredded towels, horrible beds and linens - all at exhorbitant prices are your thing, this is your hotel. We paid luxury hotel prices for accomodations slightly better than a youth hostel, but not as clean. A horrible experience.

Small, No Electricity, Quite, No View

The hotel was average nothing that stood out. Good dinners. Didn't have electricity when first checked in. Very small room, didn't get the room I requested. The view was of other windows in a courtyard. Fairly helpful staff. Locations was the best thing. Close to many attractions.
