Situated in a lovely park, our first impression was 'wow!' this is a beautiful place and ain't we lucky to stay here for a whole week! Slowly though, we started to encounter little problems. The first one was our room. What they call split level, is one room as you go in and very, very steep stairs to the bed,...

I've been here countless times despite the building works, but they are almost finished and it's a great transformation and the staff are charming, efficient and very accommodating. The rooms are big, lots of style choice and the bathrooms have hot water!

Nothing is to much for the people at front desc. Cheerful, friendely and helpfull. A special place to stay, it used to be an orphenage and lies in the middle of Amsterdam, with the entrance in the parc! I felt like a queen in a palace, such beauty, space and view. If you need to stay in a city but...

Visited the hotel during the Hotelnacht. Nice entrance in the park. Great and helpful staff and cool (new?) restaurant with nice view on the park. Will definitely return during summertime! The neighborhood is great too with lots of nice restaurants and shops.

Hotel Arena is very beautiful, it's literally in a big and green park. It's under renovation so it doesn't look so good. We have a good time there, workers on the hotel are nice. I wouldn't repeat my stay because the room was dirty, the bathroom was a mess and the stairs were mortal.

Second time visiting Amsterdam - this time with my best friend. First impressions of the hotel were amazing! It was under renovation but this didn't affect our stay. The staff were lovely/helpful and the room was insane - modern décor and 10/10 cleanliness. It was a fair distance to travel to the centre but there are tram stops/metro down the...
