The location was great, it is placed near to the Central station, which was very convenient for our transportation, furthermore there were plenty of shops/café/bars around the area, which area to my opinion is the place to be if you are visiting Amsterdam. Now regarding the hotel itself the rooms were spacious clean and functional with good amenities. I really...

Have stayed here several times in the past and with the new renovations (still ongoing) the view of Oosterpark from the Park Bar & Restaurant with its the new frontage is so relaxing. Look forward to returning again and seeing the completed job.

The hotel is beautiful and is inside a very nice park, nice clean cozy room. I really liked the clear bathroom the very good care of the hotel staff. The only downside is that it is a 35 minute walk from the center. Which is perfectly managed taking two trams that pass near the hotel you can take a card...

Loved the hotel, a great experience for all 4 of us. If there is a word for being classy yet a bit different then that's what I would use to describe Arena. The in house dining facility is also first rate and we had a great meal there the night before we left.
