A nice hotel with a good party atmosphere. Stayed in room 029 which was well laid out but needed some maintenance under the stairs. Not yet quite four stars. Will return as location excellent and staff very helpful and pleasant. Housekeeping was also efficient.

We stayed for two nights at the end of July and were very pleased with the hotel. It definitely exceeded our expectations! We had absolutely no issues with the stay and have nothing bad to say. The staff were very helpful, there was a nice bar and restaurant attached and the room was great for us. We were in a... More

Dear Micheal, Thank you very much for your kind review on Tripadvisor. It is a pleasure to read your experience at our hotel and we are very happy for the rating that you gave us. It is true that the sizes of the twin beds (90 × 200 cm or 35 × 79 inches) in Europe are smaller than in... More

We arrived about 2pm knowing the check in time was 3pm but on the off chance our room was ready. No big deal, it wasn't, so we were actually offered a suite for an extra €50 per night if we want to check in immediately. Not a bad deal, actually, but we decided to come back at 3pm. We actually...

Stayed at hotel arena having never been to amsterdam previously. Very efficient book-in and room was spotless. Decor was unusual but interesting. The beds were very comfortable and everything was provided. The staff were very professional and nothing was a problem and always with a smile. Quick service in restaurant, plenty of choice at breakfast (15E) and bar and lovely... More

Just returned from our trip and had the most wonderful stay. The hotel isn't in the centre of Amsterdam, however we found the location ideal, not too near all the hustle of the centre but near enough to walk to all the attractions or to hop on a tram just around the corner. You can get to the centre walking... More

This hotel was pretty good value, and I would stay there again if my budget was the same. It's also quite refreshing not being in the very centre, particularly in high season, when it's so crowded. It's close enough to walk anyway. Oosterpark is gorgeous too. We upgraded to a studio and we were glad we did, though there was... More
