In the early 20th century, six shipping companies decided to join forces to build a shared head office, from where they could sell tickets for voyages by sea to the Dutch East Indies, Africa and other destinations. Prins Hendrikkade proved to be the perfect location as it was close to Oostelijke Handelskade, which was the quay from where the trading ships docked and departed.
The envisaged building was required to exude splendeur and strength. In 1912 architect Van der Meij is appointed to design this symbolic structure.



Rooms25 is a boutique hotel tucked away on the Marineterrein (navel base), once a navy area and now a hotspot for locals. Sit back and enjoy watching the action on the water from the waterfront terrace with possibly the best cocktails and views in Amsterdam.
