Sharing is caring
Our dedicated Sustainability Team’s core task is to constantly reflect on the question: ‘How do we as Hotel Casa contribute to a more sustainable use of the earth?’ A challenging question, with many different possible answers. At Casa we use the BREEAM Certificate as a guideline to organize our business operations as sustainably as possible. The main topics we focus on are:
We are proud to collaborate with GiveMe5, an initiative dedicated to supporting economically homeless individuals who have faced financial hardships, such as divorce or bankruptcy. These individuals often do not earn enough to secure housing and are not yet eligible for social housing due to limited registration. GiveMe5 combines the resources of the hospitality industry with the expertise of social organizations like De Regenboog Groep in Amsterdam to provide these individuals with a lifeline.
This student season, Hotel Casa is honored to dedicate one of our rooms to a GiveMe5 participant. By doing so, we contribute to their mission of offering a safe haven where individuals can recover from life on the streets, access support, and take steps towards employment and permanent housing for only €15 a night. Together with GiveMe5, we are working towards a more inclusive and compassionate society, one room at a time.
On Request Housekeeping
Hotel Casa offers a on request housekeeping service. Your room will be refreshed every fourth day of your stay as a part of our standard service, no need to ask. You can request additional housekeeping service by placing our doorhanger on your door or by calling reception on the phone in your room (dial 9) before 12.00 noon.
With the implementation of the on request housekeeping service, we can save up to 23.000 liters of water and 1060 kwh of electricity per year. We invest those cost savings in sustainable projects such as Hotels for Trees. Together with Hotels for Trees, we actively support the transition towards a more eco-friendly hotel industry by planting a tree for each day a guest chooses to skip room cleaning.
Thank you for supporting our sustainable mission!

We are on a green mission! There is no daily cleaning as per standard, except on the fourth day of each stay. This way, we can save up to 23,000 liters of water and 1060 kwh of electricity per year. We invest those cost savings in sustainable projects such as Hotels for Trees to make the world a little greener. Together with Hotels for Trees, we actively support the transition towards a more sustainable hotel industry. Let’s unite for a greener world.
We rather use glass! Anything poured from a glass container when compared to its plastic counterpart simply tastes better. Period. Also, glass is non-toxic, free from potentially harmful chemicals, and generally not associated with a negative impact on your health and the environment.
We’re proud of our ‘tasty’ Dutch drinking water. Bring your water bottle and enjoy it too!
This way we keep the hotel cool in summer and warm in winter.
Hybrid or electric.
So that a tap is never left running unnecessarily.
An organization that helps young people with a disadvantage in the labor market to make a flying start. Our colleagues can register as a career coach or, for example, to provide job application training.
We entered a sustainable partnership and during the renovation of all our 520 hotel rooms, we also renovated one of the rooms of the Amsterdam Ronald McDonald House in the same style.
On a socially responsible cause. Every Casa employee is given the opportunity to propose a goal and devote working time to it.
Did you know that...
53% women and 47% men.
30% of the total has a non-Dutch nationality.
11% are under 20, 47% are between 20 and 30 years old, 19% are between 30 and 40 years old, 16% are between 40 and 50 and 7% are over 50.
This division is the result of a natural course of functions. With a vacant MT role, we always look for the most suitable person for the position.
Regardless of gender, age, origin, culture, sexual orientation, or other factors that may be discriminated against. We find it particularly important that a new colleague fits well into the Casa family and that every applicant has a fair chance.
In this way we also give students who live in the Netherlands as status holders a chance. We teach these students the intricacies of the hospitality industry, but we also help them learn the Dutch language.
That is why we give students with a physical disability the opportunity to do an internship with us, but we also work together with Emma at Work, a meditation agency for young people with a physical disability. Our facilities are easily accessible for people in a wheelchair and our employees like that there is room for people from the entire society!
