Historical Traveller Reviews of Die Port van Cleve Hotel
Great Location-avoid breakfastfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Staff never apologise for poor service which seems to suggest its a regular occurrence.
Overall a three star hotel with a one star breakfast.
Not too badfrom A TripAdvisor Member
In all it's somewhere to get your head down and you won't have to walk to far to get back to it which will probably be a good job.
Great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We will certainly return again!!!! The room number was 325.
t be Fooled by the Star Ratingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
(70 euros/night) through an online website.
It was a 4 star hotel.
The location is next to none. You are right in the center if amsterdam, and a step outside the doors is a tram line. You can easily walk, or use transportation.
The rooms were very nice as well. Clean, and nice washrooms.
However, the concierge and bell hop were not so pleasant. Beware.
If you can get a good rate on this hotel, I'd book it. You'll love the location. But don't expect 4 stars. It's more like 2 or 3 stars, which is also acceptable.
Note, the pub downstairs is beautiful, with lots of old dark wood and great decoration.
I rated this hotel as 'ok' because they don't seem to care so much about their guests. Maybe they are too big.
It's that feeling you get that no one really cares that makes the difference to me. That's the reason for my rating.
I'd only recommend this hotel if you could get a rate as low or lower than the one I got. Otherwise you are better off to stay somewhere cheaper, and you'll probably find the same service.
There is a lift as we as a very nice upscale restaurant.
Again, it's all about location.
Don't be fooled by the Stars.
Enjoy your time in Amsterdam!!
it was freaking sweetfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Nice Hotel, Nice Peoplefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Avoid using their internet computer in the lobby, it costs 9 euros per 30 minutes. I appreciated that the staff behind the desk indicated to me how to go to an internet cafe very close to the hotel for a cheaper internet service.
The reason I like this hotel is because the staff are candid and nice. I remember in 1999, for my first time in Amsterdam, the person behind the desk went out of her way to help with directions. She was even very candid about pocket picking in amsterdam and was warning all guests on check-in about the problem.

Good location, but not really a 4*from gordongecko
The Die Port Van Cleve's greatest asset is it's location. Very close to Dam Sq and a 5-10min walk to Central Station (get the train from Schipol for 3.10 euros and then walk to the hotel. As long as you don't have huge suitcases it's easy). Everything is close by and accessible.
The tram stops right outside but almost everywhere is walkable. I think this location is better than hotels around Central Station, which are further away from the main sites. The room was clean and comfortable and serviced by the maid after our first night. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. We didn't eat at the hotel.
On the negative side I thought the overall standard of the hotel was more like a 3* than a 4* and consequently it was overpriced, but that may be a problem with most hotels in Amsterdam. The room was very small - just enough space for a double bed and a wardrobe. Also the roof was sloping so there was little head room in places! The hotel decor in areas besides the reception is quite old and somewhat "beat up", almost musty looking. The bathroom was very very small. When sitting on the toilet there was about 3 inches of space from my knee to the wall. The shower went from hot to cold regularly and wasn't powerful.
Overall I would probably go back because of its location. If you are there for a weekend it's great. By no means a bad hotel, but definitely not a great one either
Brilliant locationfrom Baker24
Brilliant location! Within walking distance to everything and you have trams and taxis right outside the door of the hotel.
If I was to go back I would stay there again.
Great Locationfrom Marie
