Hotel Die Port van Cleve consists of three special monumental buildings that are connected to each other and therefore all 122 hotel rooms vary in size and layout. Our hotel rooms consist of four different room types: standard, superior, executive and business rooms.

All rooms have been designed to provide you with modern comfort in a classing setting with a Dutch historical accent and reference to the Delft Blue tile fresco in our Bar-Bodega 'De Blauwe Parade'. The rooms are similarly decorated, but still remain unique in their own way.

150 years for better or worse

Dear guest,

Our hotel is not getting any younger. To be precise, it’s turning 150 years old. Unique, for sure, but to be able to receive guests with the same boundless love as they did around the opening, we have to give some love to this historic building as well. That often goes with an endearing coat of pain, but sometimes a firm tap is needed as well. It could be you might notice these tapping noises so now and then, although we will try to be more gentle before 10 a.m. We count on your understanding and encourage you to ask our staff about the rich history of our hotel.

With warm regards,

Herwin Otten
Hotel Manager at Die Port van Cleve

Our history

The rich history of this classic Amsterdam centre hotel dates back to 1864 when G.A. Heineken opened his first Heineken brewery on this location. Due to the city council filling in the canal in front of the building in the name of modernisation, Heineken moved his brewery to the present location on the Stadhouderskade in Amsterdam.

The Hulscher brothers continued the business and on 5 September 1870 a unique beer house opened its doors, called Die Port van Cleve. The name Die Port van Cleve comes from a memorial stone with the inscription 'Die Port van Cleve' which was found during the renovation of the building by the Hulscher brothers. The beer house was a popular place for business men and artists to get together. It did not take long before it expanded into a restaurant with the Brasserie 'De Poort', serving typical Dutch dishes and what were to become the famous numbered steaks. The numbered steaks have been served at this location since then. With the arrival of the travelling salesmen, the restaurant soon changed into a hotel, Hotel Die Port van Cleve Amsterdam.
