#27 of 448 Specialty lodging in Amsterdam
Allow yourself to enter the historical gate next to the Maritime Museum, at number 5 Kattenburgerstraat. The lovely parkland oasis you will encounter is the former Marine Land of the Dutch Navy, located in the heart of Amsterdam and close to the Central Station. There, between the original 17th Century wall, the historical harbour and the age-old trees, one finds Pension Homeland. The former Officers Mess in building 006 has been restored preserving its original details and now houses a 31 room hotel, its own atmospheric bar and a restaurant with its own brewery.

Sorry, but I did not feel welcome here. Mostly because of the one guy in the reception who kept on harassing me. I was denied breakfast because I didn't wear shoes, and I was yelled at because I didn't want to give my credit card details AFTER I paid. If you want something more than cheap and decent enough, stay away!

Pension Homeland is a cool spot, in a great location, with a very nice staff. The hotel is nice, with views of the marina, a nice bar and restaurant. All the staff was very nice and welcoming with kind greetings and recommendations for things to do. While the room was small, but I think standard size in most European hotels from what I’ve gathered in my travels, the bed was comfy, the room was clean, and we had an unobstructed view of the courtyard and marina. Most things were walkable, if you don’t mind walking ☺. In about 20 minutes, steady pace walking time, you can get to Amsterdam Central, the Red Light district, tons of restaurants, the canal/canal rides and attractions, and stops for the Hop on Hop off bus. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed in February with 7 friends. We had 2 family rooms which were 2 singles and a large double in each room. The rooms are also partitioned so the double feels like it's in a separate room. Beds are very comfortable. The room is really spacious so we didn't feel like we were in each other's way at all. Bathroom was also clean and spacious. The hotel staff were so friendly and accommodating. Bar was good to and had lots of space to chill out. Bar is card only though!

My son and I stayed three days at the Pension Homeland after staying in the museum distract. We are both art and craft beer lovers so the Pension was a double win for us. :) The bar has several craft beers on tap and they bring in musical groups. And the walls are filled with works of art. We also enjoyed spending time by the fire looking out at the water. The staff was incredibly engaging talking about the beer, the food and the family nature of the staff. I especially enjoyed the floral arrangement at the entrance desk. I was informed it was a regular practice. Take a look at our photos to paint the picture of our stay.
