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.

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!

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!!

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

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?

Awesome location and undergoing renovation

This hotel was at the heart of Amsterdam. My sister and I found it's location to be very convenient to all our planned acitivities. The hotel has a major tram and bus stop out front to make any length of travel within the city easy. The rooms were fairly clean, the wifi was free with good strength, and the staff were knowledgeable. The only drawback was at this particular time in January the AC and water were undergoing renovations so there were short time blocks when water couldn't be used. This wasn't too inconvenient and we received a discount on the restaurant for this trouble. Renovations aside, I would say that this hotel is a good value any time of the year.

Good Hotel...Great Location

The hotel was nice...a very decent European hotel. What it lacked in anything it most definitely made up for in location. This hotel is so centrally located that anything else does not matter. The rooms were a bit small but nothing can be done about that...the only thing that was a bit annoying was that the hot water in the shower would go slightly cold every so often but it wasn't unbearable and AT LEAST there was was hot water.

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.
