The Hotel is a nice Place to stay, but we were there in December. It was cold out-and inside. Only a Small heater was there. The breakfast was average. But they could Point throuh friendliness and calmness. So Overall a nice Place because of the nice Rooms.

I stayed here 3 nights and my feedback is positive. People are all extremely nice and welcoming. The rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfast is fine and the room is relaxing :) In the evening you can take in a good Dutch beer with colleagues or friends.

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights, last week of November. On arrival it was too early to check into our room, which was fine as we went off to have lunch & explore the city. When we returned around 4:30 pm there was a minor problem with our room, however the staff were very accommodating, giving us... More

This is, to be fair, a very nicely decorated hotel. It also sports a really good bar. However, although the rooms are nicely furnished, there are quite some small issues. First, the blinds are simply not sufficient. Light leaks through them in a rather absurd fashion. Shutters would be much better. Second, the lighting is incoherent. Lights for the toilet... More

We stayed in Hotel Arena for work and were very impressed by its contemporary feel and layout. The Hotel felt very young and funky, but yet still classy. A great boutique feel without the boutique price tag. The old staircase was amazing. Rooms were comfortable and clean even if basic. Or should that be minimal in feel. It can get... More

Lovely hotel in a location which is only a few tram stops away from the main squares. We stayed in a deluxe room on the first floor - there was no issue with noise from anywhere and the room was nicely decorated. The bathroom walls are made entirely of glass and you can see through them, however the bed faces... More
