Hotel Arena is situated at the edge of the city center of Amsterdam and is accessible through Oosterpark. The hotel is situated in a monumental building, which was built in 1886. Throughout the years, the building has been transformed from a Catholic orphanage to a four-star hotel. The monumental ornaments, such as the original wooden marble staircase and the restored Chapel, have been kept in its original state. They still tell the stories about the impressive history of the building. This rich history is being combined with modern design and vibe, which is visible in the hotel rooms, PARK Café-Restaurant, the creative meeting and event Studios, the beautiful Salon and the unique Chapel. With the Amsterdam city center around the corner and Oosterpark as front yard, Hotel Arena is the perfect location. Stay in one of our tower rooms from the 19th century or in a modern duplex suite with a panorama view of both the city and the park; everything is possible.

I had such an amazing stay at the Hotel Arena, the hotel is perfectly located in an amazing parc. The room is beautifully decorated and the hotel is perfectly clean it might be one of the cleanest I've ever visited. The staff was very helpful and very attentive to my needs. I thank them for that specially with the actual Covid19 situation. I recommend this hotel for any kind of travel. PS: the breakfast was so good 😊

Not a bad thing to say about this place. Staff were so helpful and kind. The hotel itself is a great location with walking distance to the centre. The way the hotel was done was exceptional. Our room had two levels with good facilities. Could not fault it. On a separate note, the park Restaurant was amazing. The staff, the food, the atmosphere was top quality. Truly one of the best restaurants I’ve been to for dinner and breakfast. Will be coming back very soon.

I honestly do not have a bad word to say about this hotel, it’s STUNNING. Upon arrival we were set to stay in the suite which on my behalf there was some confusion with the room pictures but the lady on reception went out of her way to switch this instantly to the room that I wanted. I didn’t manage to catch her name but she had lovely curly hair and needs to be recognised for her customer service level as she went above and beyond to make our stay extra special. The room was so special and the hotel is set on the most beautiful grounds. Every corridor, every ceiling, every staircase has a piece of history that you can instantly see. I also loved reading about the hotel in the guide in the room. We would hands down recommend to everyone!! My only niggle was breakfast - I would of liked a bit more choice and maybe some things to be labelled as I poured some juice thinking it was a mixed fruits but it was grapefruit so I couldn’t drink it and I hate wasting things. But with that being said we ate and drank in the restaurant lots and couldn’t fault it!

Great Hotel with amazing staff, park view and relaxed vibes. The metro from Amsterdam Centraal takes you to the hotel within 15 Minutes with a 7 Minute walk. I started my day with a morning run through the Osterpark.

Beautiful hotel with a great location (right on an amazing park)! Very easy walk to the city center and restaurants/cafes, though their own cafe was great. The service throughout our stay was amazing (very helpful and welcoming). The room had a great view of the park and nice styling with comfortable furniture. No hassles at all, and would certainly want to stay again next time.
