City garden for the AmsterdammerThe story of Hotel Casa begins in 1957, with four friends and one dream: creating affordable housing for students in Amsterdam. One of those four has an extra special place in our hearts; Gabbe Scheltema. Founder of Casa, real Amsterdammer, our gap (Amsterdam slang for friend) and been involved with us until the last moment.
Now, 64 years later, he lives on in this green roof garden, high above the bustling city.
The roof terrace is to be enjoyed during the summer months. GAPP is like coming home. Coming home in your own garden. Where you wake up in the morning among birds, you completely isolate yourself from the city or enjoy a balmy summer evening with pure and natural food. A magical place that you always want to return to! At beer garden GAPP you can enjoy more than 30 local craft beers while the view of Amsterdam is at your feet. What are you waiting for...?
GAPP is open every day from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the summer months when it sees the first rays of the sun from April unless it rains! If you want to be sure that you are not faced with a closed door, keep an eye on our Facebook page for current opening hours.
