Location is superb - walking distance to pretty much everything, including Central Station, the palace square, red light, Anne Frank, churches, canals, museums... everything! It's a block removed from the palace square, so you have all of the convenience of being close but with none of the noise. Several tram lines (great system, liked it much better than subways despite my initial doubts) go right in front of the hotel and make it even more convenient to get to farther away spots. Hotel room itself was surprisingly spacious, especially for a European hotel, and comfortable. Nothing particularly fancy or lavish, but it was nice, functional, and clean. As other reviewers have said, most of the decorating effort went into the common areas, which have nice dark wood furniture and display original Delft blue porcelain items (same motif used with prints to decorate the rooms) that are worth a look. We did not eat or drink at the hotel given the huge range of nearby options, but it looked nice and probably would have been good. The Corner House (across the street) has good Dutch pancakes in the morning for breakfast, and Trappist beer on tap (just 5 euros) for later.

- Hotel Die Port van Cleve is a famous Dutch hotel located directly behind the Royal Palace & facing Dam Square. Due its central location, you will find many touristic and cultural sites within walking distance. Hotel Die Port van Cleve has a rich history. Heineken opened its first brewery in this building in 1864. Brasserie ‘De Poort’ is famous for its numbered steaks and Bar-Bodega ‘De Blauwe Parade’ has an unique Delft blue tile fresco dating from 1887. At the beginning of 2012, rooms were soft refurbished and all rooms were redecorated with references to the authentic tile fresco in the bar. ... more less
