Gappies, I’m open! 

My roof terrace is summer proof and together with my Gappies I have been working on a new menu. For comfort food and a wide choice of the most delicious beers, you are at the right (rooftop) terrace!  Will you step by soon to watch the sun go down over our beautiful city?




GAPP is a rooftop beergarden, located high above the bustling city of Amsterdam!

You can reserve a spot on my rooftop garden from now on! There is a pop-up on the right where you can choose your favorite date and time. There are a few rules we have to keep in mind: 

  • You can choose a time between 12:00-23.00 during the desired time slot and day. 
  • Unfortunately, I do not take any reservations of more than 4 persons. 
  • It is mandatory to wear a face mask with more than 2 people in the elevator. 
Follow us:
Grab my favourite beer: Gabbe!

Bring all your friends (of course we stick to the rules!) to the 8th floor and enjoy the radiant sun, the beautiful view, the extensive beer menu and the tastiest dishes.


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!
