Booked this through lastminute.com and got a great price! Hotel is very unique and has lots of history. Rooms large and with good design. Location is a bit out of the way but there is a tram nearby which is nice and easy (tip- wear comfortable shoes when visiting this City, you can walk for miles)!! Overall very happy with... More

Our first room we booked was very very dirty (never seen in my life!). We could change but in the morning at nine o clock we woke up because the cleaning lady (at least I'm happy to know there is cleaning staff) came into the room without excuse just giving the advice we should put the do not disturb sign...

Found this hotel on lastminute.com as a package deal along with British Airways flights for a very good price. Saw Hotel Arena was a 4* and thought I would definitely choose it. Stayed Monday-Friday and must admit, the hotel is very basic. I expected more from a 4*. The rooms were nice and the bed was great, but the walls... More

Amazing hotel and great location right near a beautiful canal and just over the bridge is a tram line that takes you into the heart of Amsterdam. If you want a relaxing & quiet place to stay this is the place to stay!

Excellent hotel for a few nights in Amsterdam. Well located to offer easy access to the town center and a quiet night sleep. Our free upgraded room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Would visit again!

We stayed 4 nights in this lovely hotel. It is an historical building finely restored, very smart and comfortable. The room had two connected floors, a king size bed and a big bathroom... This one was quite a problem, it doesn't allow any privacy because it was build by black glass( very elegant...but disturbing). The staff was helpful and nice,... More

Having never visited Amsterdam before. I booked a 3 night stay at this hotel with my partner. Getting to the hotel is very straightforward. From Schiphol Airport we took the train to Central Station, and then hopped on the number 9 tram to Alexanderplein. From there it is a 5 minute walk to the hotel. Although our room wasn't available... More

I was so surprised to arrive at Hotel Arena and find such a nice, modern, and well-equipped hotel for such a low price. The rooms were beautiful, with everything you could ask for. The staff was wonderful, both on check-in and in helping with directions to and from downtown. The only negatives of this hotel is that it is a... More

€ 250 per night is far too much for the quality, even at "SAIL" weekend in Amsterdam the service and the construction area around the hotel. Location in city is good. Our expectations have not been met.

This hotel is really wonderful. It is a completely renovated historical building with many unique and interesting features. Our room was quite large with a sitting room and large bathroom! The room had high ceilings and huge windows, lots of natural light. The front desk staff is lovely. Very accommodating and helpful. The restaurant in the hotel is convenient and... More
