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.

With a street front location it is great to watch the people pass by in the busy centre of Amsterdam city.

Good location, nothing special

Walking distance from train station and centrally located. No air condition working. They say they are fixing, and as compensation offered 25% discount at their restaurant. I did not take them up on that.

better outside than inside

This hotel looks great from the outside, and also has a beautiful breakfast room and - much appreciated - free and convenient Wi-Fi access. Unfortunately, my room was not up to snuff; a stain on the wall, empty soap/shampoo bottle in the shower. Sleeping was tough as the airconditioning did not work (they did apologize up front for this apparently temporary situation due to refurbishing)and street noise was loud till 3am, and then restarted with cleaning at 6am! Moreover, I have never witnessed such a slow check-out line. When communicating that the one person at the reception needs help around noon, the answer I got was 'yes, but it is also lunchtime for the employees'. On the plus side, that one person at check out ([...]) was the friendliest you can imagine.In sum, the hotel did not live up to my expectations (partly set by the splendid exterior), but has many fine qualities.

Great stay in Amsterdam

This was a nice hotel for a very reasonable price. The city tram had a stop immediately in front and it was only about a 5 minute walk from the central train station. The food at the restaurant on site was delicious and they had the best pancake and ice cream dessert! The one downside was that the hotel was renovating the air conditioning system at the time, but they provided a large fan that was sufficient.

Great place

The hotel is a perfect location for exploring Amsterdam, close to major attractions, good tram service right in front. I did not dine in the hotel, as the prices and quality looked like typical hotel stuff.

Decent Value

Not a bad place, clean, good location, good breakfast. A bit pricey for the room size and amenities, very slow elevator. I would probably stay here again, but would look for a lower price first.
