“Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

Check in was fast and smooth. However breakfast is pretty pricey, if I stay here again I'd give breakfast a pass as there are TONS of bakeries around the hotel that are much cheaper. Rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is in a great location and I'd stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel at the start of December for a mini break. The location is fantastic, near to all the local attractions, good bus and tram service and the railway station is within walking distance so if you do not have much luggage there is no need for a taxi. We were upgraded to a superior room which was very nice. The beds were really comfortable and the room was very clean and certainly roomy. Good breakfast. We travelled with jet2 and when we arrived at Amsterdam airport sadly our cases did not arrive with us. We waited for quite a while with another eight or more couples who also were on our flight and awaiting the arrival of their suitcases which did not arrive. We were told to leave our details and we would be contacted once they have located all the missing suitcases. By this time we had already lost well over 3 hours at the airport. We made our way to the hotel but this had obviously spoilt the start to our mini break. We waited nearly all day for a call from the airport and we had also tried to phone them anyway with the help of the hotel staff which I cannot thank enough and especially Laura and Norah who were fantastic we eventually got our suitcases back at 10.30 that evening but we had to collect them ourselves from the airport as Jet2 said it was not there policy to deliver suitcases to hotels even though it was their airline that had lost them. I of course was very stressed about it all. So we would just like to say a special big thank you to Laura and Norah who made our stay at the hotel a very pleasant one they were so helpful thank you girls. We would definitely recommend this hotel and when we return to Amsterdam but not with Jet2 we will definitely stay at this hotel again. Excellent all round.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a superior room which was at the front and had a good view onto the Main Street...

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.
