The 3-star Hotel Casa Amsterdam is a student-friendly hotel in the eastern district of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Originally established in the late 50s as a student housing project, it began offering rooms to summer visitors to help with the costs. This ensures that the place is always bustling with a friendly mix of young people and visitors, while a new building, opened in 2010, increases the hotel ambience. There is also a whole floor devoted to meeting space, with 13 rooms holding up to 350 people.
The Hotel Casa Amsterdam has 396 comfortably furnished rooms on eight floors, with a choice of double, twin or triple occupancy, and rooms for disabled guests. All rooms have a fridge, shower and free WiFi, and tea/coffee making facilities. The East 57 concept is a unique blend of coffee house, bar and restaurant, where you can grab a coffee to go, linger over a scrumptious breakfast or have a sociable drink. There's a tasty lunch and dinner menu, too, so you need never move from one spot! On balmy summer evenings, you can also go up to the rooftop terrace and enjoy a selection of craft beers while you admire the setting sun.
The hotel is close to the Amstel train and metro station, so it's easy and convenient to get into the city if you want to visit the famous museums, canals and art galleries. The local area is also an up-and-coming centre of activity, with many boutiques, bars and restaurants situated around the famous Amstel River.
