“Brilliant location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We decided to pay more for a better hotel in a desirable location and we definitely made the right choice. The hotel was just behind Dam square so very close to plenty of attractions with a tram stop just outside. In the evenings we could wander around central Amsterdam and there were plenty of places to eat and drink. Our room was small but comfortable with everything we needed, we were out all day and part of every evening so it was really only to wash and sleep in. The concierge staff and receptionists couldn't have been more helpful or polite and the breakfast spread was amazing with little changes every day. We ate our breakfast overlooking the rear of the Royal Palace. Our only issue was the room was a little warm for us even when we turned the heating right down but that would not stop us going there again in a flash.

We enjoyed our first trip to Amsterdam at de Port Van Cleve. Excellent location by the Palace & Dam Square. Old world charm about the hotel's dining rooms & bar. Staff helpful and attentive. Room 501 overlooks the university at the back. Quite quiet on 5th floor. Paid extra for a bigger room but no extra furniture to fill it. Basic small table & chairs. Foam mattresses on the beds dipped in the middle. Extra top-up mattress was badly stained & a plastic sheet made for an uncomfortably hot night. We thought 19.50E each for breakfast was expensive. Instead ate over the road @ Milleys bakers. Yum. Martin looked after us very well indeed when we ate in the bar one evening. Would choose another hotel on next visit.

Great location,close to Central Station,a four euro single trip,buy from the ticket machines it's cheaper. Breakfast spread excellant,something for everyone. The coffee machines were a bit tempremental though. Nice room,121, with a super view. On two levels,small fridge. Bed was a wee bit on the hard side. No traffic noise even though we were at the front. Well glazed.

Room Tip: Room 121,great view,quiet,on two levels,nice bathroom.

This was our first trip to Amsterdam and it was fantastic. Hotel was in excellent location of being close to the main attractions and being a short walk away from dam square was brilliant. Staff we're lovely and couldn't help you enough very attentive. When we plan a trip back to Amsterdam Die Port Van Cleve is the place we will stay :) loved every minute

Hotel has a lovely frontage and is just steps away from dam square. It is easily walkable from central station and situated behind the palace. It is my opinion that money has been spent on the public areas such as the opulent dining room and authentic bar however my room was soulless and tired. I appreciated the fridge but the basics were missing such as drawers ,adequate coat hangers and a decent hair dryer.there was one in the bathroom but it was a hose which blew out warm air and was less than satisfactory.
The breakfast was almost twenty euros but had something for everyone and was plentiful. The staffing was not plentiful however, just two polite but overworked gentlemen. People had to ask for tables to be cleared from the previous diners and then on the same visit I had to ask for a bowl, then a plate, then to have the coffee machine replenished.
It was a hotel which served a purpose but I may well look elsewhere next time.

We really liked this hotel because of the location and the fantastic view from our room. This was a superior room on the second floor overlooking the Nieuwe Kerk. Other rooms were smaller and with backyard view, so go for the superior if you want an extra touch to your stay. Hotell staff were very attentive, we received excellent service from Laura in reception. The hotel is literally on Dam square and near all major attractions. There are several tram stops outside the hotel so you can easyly get anywhere, including two direct lines to the Rijksmuseum. The breakfast buffet is expensive so we went to Mellys right on the other side of the street which was great. The hotel has a nice bar which is great for a glass of wine in the evening.
