Conference venue and hotel accommodation

Scam warning!

You may receive an email from fraudulent agencies, such as Expo Hotel Services, offering the booking of hotel accommodation for the 9th Beneficial Microbes Conference. This is a scam. We have no agreement with any agency. The hotel booking has to be arranged by the participants themselves (see below under ‘Hotel accommodation’).


The 9th Beneficial Microbes Conference will take place at Hotel Casa Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Thanks to the hotel’s unique location near the Amstel Station, the whole city is at your feet.


Amsterdam provides all you need for an unforgettable getaway. The 17th century historical atmosphere combined with the mentality of a modern metropolis creates a friendly and relaxed environment. The city has the highest museum density in the world and is home to cultural highlights, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Hermitage Amsterdam, and the Rijksmuseum with Rembrandt’s world-famous Nightwatch. Other well-known places of interest in Amsterdam are the Palace on the Dam, the Artis Zoo, Jewish Historical Museum, and the Rembrandt House.

How to reach the venue

Arriving by plane, it is most convenient to take the train from Schiphol Airport to the station Amsterdam Amstel. The train is leaving directly from the airport. You can plan your trip at http://www.ns.nl/en (enter from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Amstel; travel time about 30 minutes). From the train station Amsterdam Amstel it’s a 5-minutes walk to the hotel. Please do not take a taxi from the airport to Amsterdam. This is very expensive and very often unlicensed drivers are involved.

Going to the venue by car is not recommended. The parking space is very limited in the area; in addition, the area is a paid parking zone.

Hotel accommodation

Participants are responsible for making their own room reservation. Hotel Casa Amsterdam is holding a block of rooms for the conference (code: BMC2022) at a reduced rate. You can make your room reservation here.
