We spent four nights at Hotel Arena in February 2017. It's a lovely hotel set on the edge of a beautiful park. The room was nice and the restaurant seemed good, although too expensive for our budget. The hotel is set near great transport links to the centre and the museum square. There are also lots of local places to...

The hotel was very nice, located in a park. Big and spacy areas, like the restaurant and lobby. The location was a little of, but it was close to the trams so it didn´t become a problem. I would recommend it to my friends.

Beautiful place with high potential but unfortunately a disappointing experience. Rooms not perfectly kept and need to be refurbished or at least better cleaned. But the main issue of the is the service. We had reserved a “deluxe” room what was obviously not available. As compensation we got an upgrade to a very strange suite, dark room directly giving to...

When you eat out in Amsterdam you accept that the service is not good. It's a sad fact of life. It's rubbish generally. Which means that when you visit a place that is dreadful even by Amsterdam standards then you know you are close to rock bottom. We tried to have lunch today in the Hotel Arena. It looks great....

Lovely hotel, currently under renovation but from what we could see of the work being done and the areas open to guests it has the potential to be really good, located in a nice area next to the park, and not too far to travel in order to get to the centre, ideal for a quiet night.

Our stay at Hotel Arena was very nice. We were upgraded to a suite in a tower upon arrival which was a nice surprise. The service at the front desk was very professional but with at personal touch. Unfortunately we did not spend much time in the surrounding neighbourhood, but we did not experience the geographic location of the hotel...

We stayed for two nights. I would like to come back when the weather is better and enjoy the outside area of the restaurant and the park. Helpful staff and the perfect breakfast. We were very happy to get a bathtub in our room which we hadn't expected to get! Thumbs up!

Quirky and cool, i really liked it and the restauarant is really great. Ensure bathrooms could do with more privacy somehow. Location is fine there are 2 nearby trams that get you in to Amsterdam quite easily.

Spent 3 nights here as a base to explore Amsterdam. Great location in a lovely park and easy access to trams in all the directions that we wanted to go. We bought a transport pass at the airport,which lasted us 96hours and cost 22€ each and caught trams everywhere, this was a perfect arrangement. The hotel was clean, great decor...
