“Really nice hotel”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at Die Port van Cleve, especially as it is so central within the city. The room was very nice, with plenty of space and a lovely balcony looking onto the city (we suspect it was the only room with a balcony). Staff were helpful and were great at answering any questions we had. The lift was broken down but when it was fixed it was extraordinarily slow so just use the service lift beside it instead. The food in the restaurant was pricey but nice, though we usually went elsewhere to eat. The whole place was clean and well maintained (despite the main lift being broken down, though that wasn't much of a problem as there was an alternative), and overall we really enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: Our room was 601 (top floor) which had a balcony, and was a nice size.

Very small rooms with a view to the other rooms in a backyard - no privacy at all - it is not worth more than 2 stars - it smelled of marihuana when we arrived - too expensive - the only posive thing is the very central location

Just got back from 3 night stay in this hotel. The hotel has the amenities of a 4star but as far as comfort goes only a 2star. We had room 229 which faced into a courtyard and other bedrooms and this meant that you had to have the curtains drawn on a night or provide a peep show. During the day we had net curtains which stopped people walking along the corridor looking into our room. The room had very little natural daylight. The room was lit by table lamps which were screwed down and couldn't therefore be moved around. The bathroom lighting again was poor - my husband found it difficult to shave and I found it difficult to apply make-up (we both wear glasses). The air conditioning was broken and the window only opened about 5 inches. All of this I could have put up with had the bed been comfortable but alas it wasn't and I had sleepless nights tossing and turning trying to get comfortable and even sleeping on a folded duvet did little to aid comfort and a stuffy and hot room added to the misery. Why do hotels put such hard mattrasses on beds?

On the plus side, our room was quiet, hotel staff helpful and friendly and it was nice to sit in the old bar and have a quiet drink.

Would we stay at this hotel again - No.

Room Tip: Don't have room 229

This hotel is in a great location in Central Amsterdam. When you go out of the hotel, the tram stop is literally outside the building. The Centraal Station is about a 10 minute walk or a 3 minute tram ride. I would suggest that you buy one of the "I Amsterdam" city card so you'll get a free canal cruise, unlimited tram and bus rides, and it even gives you free stuff or discounts at other shops and restaurants. The concierge is very helpful and honest. When I asked them if they exchange foreign currency, they suggested that we go to the market since they have better rates and doesn't charge fees. The rooms are small though but you're never in there anyway, At least I wasn't and if you are in your room the whole time and you're on vacation, then you've got serious issues! I would definitely stay here again!

Had a great time staying here. The location is great. Close enough to the train station and right next to the Dam and the city center. Next door is a shopping center with a store that sells tickets for bus rides and events for a cheaper rate than usuall. The room is nice and clean. A pretty nice place to stay in Amsterdam.
