“Centrally located but not without compromises”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Located in the Dam Square area and with easy access to local attractions and public transport it is located conveniently. However, the rooms are noisy and small. The noise is a combination of groaning timber frame construction (which amplifies every step made by your neighbors and the staff) and street noise, which varies in intensity throughout the day. The rooms are small and with few amenities. The heating system was impossible to use and we found ourselves sleeping in long underwear more than once. Nonetheless, I would return here again as the staff was excellent and the location ideal for us. However, I would ask for a room facing Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, and not the street behind, if available.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal to avoid evening and early morning bar noise.

The hotel is in a great location, we found it with ease and it is walking distance from the train station and Anne Frank's house. It's right by Dam Square and a tram stop. There are plenty if cafés and restaurants near by. The rooms are small but who spends that much time in a hotel room anyway!? The hotel and bar had lots of character and helpful staff.

I cannot praise this hotel too highly. It is a beautiful place with delightful and skilled staff, who all try very hard to keep their guests happy. It would be my favourite on a return to Amsterdam. I can only say that I have no hesitation in strongly recommending it. Professor Frederick Toates, Milton Keynes, UK.

My wife and I stayed here for few nights over the weekend and our stay was made complete by the fantastic customer service - jugs of cold milk brought to our room for cups of tea, provision of travel adaptor plugs, and warm and welcoming staff.

The hotel is full of history, charm and the character of the old building has been well preserved and restored by the owners. Although our room was small, it was well equipped with a powerful shower, an adequate hair dryer and again, charming character. It did get very warm during the night but that's probably our own doing for not utilising the air conditioning.

The location of the hotel adjacent to Dam Square is ideal for exploring and is a ten minute walk down Damrak from Grand Central station.

Would recommend for a short exploring break such as our own. Pancakes! on Bernstadt is a must!

we returned from a 6 nights vacation in amserdam at the die port van cleve hotel.
there are no words to express our vacation. we were my husband and i with our 13 years old daugther.
the room was very big. the bathroom was also huge. the mirror was very specail with led lighting inside the mirror.
the room service was eficient. the royal palace and the church are opposite the hotel but we were like kings at the breakfast room. the breakfast had many kinds of fresh fruit, vegetables, several saussages, several chease, many kinds of rolls and bread, few kinds of coffee,. each table had a nice lamp and the staff.... so kind and helpfull and we spoke with karim, kay, and all of the others were so friendly.
the hotel can not be more better located than it is. one minitue walk and you are in dam sq and one min to the right and you have a food plaza supermaket with good prices and we took there water, apples ece.
i defintly recommend this hotel and come back.

Room Tip: we had room 325 to the street but we did not hear the tram at all.

This hotel is very handy for sightseeing, shopping and restaurants. It is comfortable, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar was particularly nice, with good ambiance. We wanted to visit the Ann Frank House, but unfortunately we were unable to book on-line before we left as it was fully booked and when we got there, the queues were unbelievable so we didn't get to see it. Next time we will book far in advance to going

Die Port van Cleve is simply in the center of Amsterdam, couple of minutes walking from the impressive Dam square.
We had a very nice room, very spacious, with a lovely view of the main street: however, other standard rooms are smaller and the view is reduced to the internal courtyard.
Toilets are bit dated, but the hotel is quite clean overall. The staff is kind and we did not experience any problem.
Good value for money compared with the high prices of Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Rooms by the main street are the best
