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.

Kattenburgstraat 7, 1018 JA Amsterdam The Netherlands
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

We were overall happy with our stay. I always prefer something a bit different from the usual chain hotels so we went for this. I usually like to be walking distance from wherever we arrive to a city and this was borderline as it was...More
