I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel and quite impressed on the room we got as we didn't pay much at all. The hallways were a little eery though as they were very dark but that might just be me being a wimp! It is a little out the way out of the centre and we did have to get... More

I booked this hotel through easytobook.com and got a great deal on a deluxe room. Before arriving, i already had it in my mind that if we enjoyed our stay, i would book again but i would book the suite with the bath as it looked amazing. I changed my mind once i arrived at the hotel. This is why......We... More

Motel was a little out of the centre of town but in a quiet area close to trams. Motel provided free WiFi. which was included in the room cost. Staff were helpful in providing assistance with transfers. Rooms were very comfortable and modern.

We had a great experience, in fact it was the best thing of our Amsterdam stay. In the beginning they were unable to find our booking and made us wait for 20 mins and gave us a free beverage coupons. But later when they found it, they provided us with a free up-gradation to their best room, the suite. The... More

It's not so close to the city centre but well connected (trams, metro) otherwise walking is really nice in Amsterdam to discover all cute streets so I recommend to walk if you can. Rooms are ok, comfortable, but just a little bit dirty (especially the mini bar which smell horrible and contained peel of rotting fruit). Staff was really friendly... More

Stayed in Hotel Arena for a week. Location: A bit outside the city, but well connected, at least during the day, via trams. Rooms: Some aspects of the room were nice and others just terrible. I had a "duplex" type room, with bathroom and "living room" downstairs and the bedroom upstairs. At first, it looked fine, but after a while... More

Business stay at the hotel so used the restaurant a few times, food was good and breakfast OK as well. Nice area to sit out if the weather is fine. Some of the decor and furnishings are a bit battered and in need of a change/paint. Had a top floor room which was really quiet. Easy tram and metro access... More

Myself and my husband have just returned from a short break in Amsterdam and stayed at the Hotel Arena for the 2nd time (3rd time for my husband).

The hotel as a building is amazing. Rooms are very spacious, clean and the bathroom is very well designed. The breakfast buffet was great however, they didn't serve fried eggs. I would definately choose this hotel again.
