Hotel information
The rich history of the hotel started on its location when G.A. Heineken opened his first Heineken brewery between 1864 and 1870. Due to the city council filling in the canal in front of the building in the name of modernisation, he moved to the present location on the Stadhouderskade.

The Hulscher brothers continued the business and on 5 September 1870 a unique beer house, called Die Port van Cleve, opened its doors. It did not take long for it to evolve from a beer house into restaurant with the De Poort brasserie serving typical Dutch dishes and what were to become the famous numbered steaks. Since 1870 these steaks have been served and in 1997 the magic number of 6,000,000 numbered and certificated steaks was reached.

Evolving from a beer house to a Dutch steakhouse, it was not long until the first rooms made the building the Die Port van Cleve hotel. The name Die Port van Cleve comes from a memorial stone with the inscription ?Die Port van Cleve? which was found during the takeover by the Hulscher brothers. Some unchanged features include the unique frontage, which has listed building status, and also the unique interior of De Blauwe Parade bar-bodega. The Delft blue tiles in the Bodega date back to 1887.
Food & beverage
In De Poort brasserie (seats up to 130 people) you can enjoy a combination of traditional Dutch and international cuisine. For all of the dishes served, the restaurant uses as much produce from Amsterdam as possible. The unique ?no-nonsense? style of the executive chef creates a pure culinary adventure.

Get the real Dutch feeling in De Blauwe Parade bar, surrounded by genuine Delft blue and white tiles. Here you can enjoy a drink, a jenever (the traditional Dutch gin-like drink) and Dutch liquor tasting. The bar is also a great place for an informal diner.

In the peaceful and modern De Hooiberg corner bar you can watch people pass by. Here staff will gladly welcome you for a coffee, appetizer or a digestive.

Just in front of this 4-star hotel you will see the Royal Palace and Dam Square and it is next to the Magna Plaza shopping centre. There's much to explore in this area and the many streets leading away from the Dam can take you to every part of the city. You can shop until you drop on the Rokin or at the Kalverstraat, but a more hip area is the Damstraat with loads of coffee shops and hippie stores.
