Hotel Review: Hotel Casa Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands 

Posted by

Looking for a hotel in cycling distance from downtown Amsterdam? Hotel Casa Amsterdam is great for that! You can leave your car safely there and go explore the city by bike.

 

This hotel is stylish and clean but it still has some hipster vibes like rooftop yoga and downstairs bars with long opening hours. If you don’t want to dig in too deep in Amsterdam hipster life and their coffee shops this is a nice soft landing to the city.

Location

 

Location ★★★★★★★★☆☆

 

The hotel is around 2 kilometers from the downtown. That makes driving and parking significantly easier, so if you’re traveling by car this is an excellent choice. The hotel also rents bikes so if you’re interested in exploring the city like a local without traffic jams this hotel offers you a chance to do so. The bikes are 15€/day.

Big rooms with bed(s), couple chairs, tables, and TV. There is also an own tea / coffee making corner, and some magazines about Amsterdam available. You can also expect to have an ensuite bathroom with shower, sink, table, and toilet.

 

Everything was clean and there sure were some interesting details in decorating. We didn’t hear any noise from other rooms, outdoors or from the hallway. Overall, the room was very comfy and great.

Other notes

 

If you want to have breakfast at the hotel, it’s 13.5€/person. However, the downtown Amsterdam also offers plenty of pancake places and other places for breakfast so we didn’t try the hotel breakfast.

 

If you’re traveling by car the hotel offers parking 20€/day in hotels private parking space. In front of the hotel, there are parking lots that are free from 9pm to 9am. During the day those are 3€/hour.

 

No gym, spa or pool. However, there is a gym in 10 minutes walk from the hotel. It’s 10€ for one day pass. We didn’t try this one but I assume it has to be good with that price.

Overall

 

Overall ★★★★★★★★☆☆

 

Hotel Casa Amsterdam was a nice experience. It is a stylish hotel with big enough rooms, nice rooftop and a good amount of parking spots nearby. Easy to enter with a car but still in cycling distance from the downtown.

 

This is you’re to go place if you want don’t want to stay in downtown but still want to be able to explore it. The rooftop of this hotel is also one reason to stay here. The views were great and they also offer some local specialty foods and drinks.

      1. Aww, thanks, I will! 🙂 There is plenty of reviews from our roadtrip last summer coming and couple other posts too!

  1. Spot on review! I always read anything about the Netherlands as that’s still a bit like home. I am from germany, (now it’s getting complicated LOL) , but very close to the dutch border. So I have spent so much time in Holland, as we call it. Your formatting is awesome, really great job!

    1. Haha, thank you! 🙂 Nowadays we’re living in so international world that these homeland and where you live things are getting a much more complicated. For me, less than half of my genes are from Finland though I have lived here most my life. However, I feel that my persona fit better in the US than here haha! 🙂 And hey, thanks for reading and comment, Klaudia! xx

  2. You had me at rooftop yoga and downstairs bars! On another note – do you work in partnership with the hotels you review? IE) Do they comp your stay, etc? If so, would you consider offering any tips on how to approach hotels with partnership opportunities! I’d love to hear your tricks of the trade. xoxo

    1. I’m sad we overslept and missed the yoga haha! I’d love to share some tips but I’ve paid everything myself. I was too busy before planning this trip so I just decided to take the easy way and just paid all our roadtrip hotels. These all were 70-150€/night. I always mention in my post if those are done in collaboration or sponsored. 🙂

    1. It sure is an interesting city with a lot to explore! 🙂 It wasn’t the easiest city to explore with car though – next time I think I’ll take a bike! I hope you can get back there soon, Tadeja!

  3. The view does look great. I know I would love that part the best. I am just not sure how much I would like the bed. Just doesn’t seem very big to me. Maybe it’s a personal preference.

    1. Well, I’m a small one and fit into any bed basically – so most hotel beds feel huge to me. My fiancee wasn’t complaining though so I guess this one was quite big. 🤔But yeah, probably it’s a personal preference. Thanks for your thoughts David! 🙂
