Die Port van Cleve is located in a great part of town. We were able to walk to and from the train station, as well as Dam Square, and the Red Light District. The front of house staff were helpful, but my friend and I were a bit confused about the cleaning services. The first day we didn't want our room cleaned and put the "do not disturb" sign up, but it was cleaned anyways. Then, our trash was never emptied and was overflowing by the end of our four day trip.
Besides that, the hotel is also near two popular landmarks and off the tram, which makes it easy to locate on the map. A great area to wander is behind the hotel where you can a liquor store, cafe/bar, cheese and chocolate stores. It's also located close to the Anne Frank House and Royal Church which are two very popular destinations.
Overall my friend and I (two women) agreed it was a great stay for the cost and we both felt safe staying in the area and had a wonderful time in the city. The location was the best part, and of course the history of the hotel is impressive (even mentioned in the Heineken Experience).
