Winter is coming… 

The last days of the season were sunny; a perfect way to end our rooftop terrace year. From October till March we will be closed, prepping for a fresh new summer season. 

Looking forward to see you in 2022!

WHAT's In a name

The story of Hotel Casa starts in 1957, with four friends and one dream; creating affordable student housing in Amsterdam.

One of those four holds an extra special place in our hearts; Gabbe Scheltema. Founder of Casa, purebred Amsterdam, our ‘gap’ (typical Amsterdam for ‘buddy’) and involved with us until the last moment.

Now, 64 years later, he lives on in our green rooftop garden, high above the bustling city.

Wait?! GAPP? Wasn't the rooftop named HOPP before?

Excellent question! Well informed we must say! We decided to honor one of our founding fathers, Gabbe Scheltema, by naming our rooftop to him. GAPP, derived from Gabbe, is also Mokums (typical vocabulary from Amsterdam) for friend or buddy. Get it? In case you want to know more, please come to GAPP and we’ll tell you more about it!
