Stayed here for my birthday weekend with my boyfriend. Prior to our stay I emailed the hotel as we had early flights and would land way before check in, dropping our bags at the hotel was no issue, fast responses via email from the hotel 👍🏾. On arriving to the hotel you could see that there is construction taking place... More

Super good hotel that looked really old and interesting. Unfortunately, the hotel isn't haunted and we really wanted the hotel to be haunted but other than that, we had a good time. Sander is also great. I have attached a picture of me very stoned smiling because i have fond memories of your hotel.

Assistance has been called immediately and different room has been offered with complimentary upgrade - spacious room with massive bathroom. Hotel is a historical building which is under constant...

I spent 4 nights and 5 days at the Hotel Arena and diced with giving it a 3 or a 4. The reason for a 3 is - -The rooms could have been 4 star, however they needed some TLC. -The "top floor" of the room would be unusable for anybody who is older/larger or just had too much to... More

Stayed 3 nights at Hotel Arena. The building was till undergoing renovations but we were compensated with a free standard drink. Tbe place is a little but of a maze, the hallways are dark and quiet but very squeaky. You can hear all the footsteps, especially past the rooms at night. No matter how careful I trod, I could descend... More

I'm sure that at one time, this hotel was good. Based on the photos of the renovation, I'm sure that it will be good again. But when we were there, it was not. First, our room was dirty and dated. It wasn't the fault of the housekeeping staff -- I'm sure they did the best they could; the issue was... More

We were staying 2 nights in Amsterdam before a river cruise. The hotel entrance was under renovation which was a surprise to us. The first room has a loft for the bed with very steep steps and no rail! We asked to be moved and were accommodated but this room had large wooded beams on both side of the bed... More

Just returned home from a 3 night stay at The Arena. Stayed with my 21 yr old daughter as one of her birthday treats. On arrival we were met with friendly staff who stored our luggage while we went sightseeing (too early for our room) The hotel interior is amazing, very old gothic style in the reception with fabulous old...

Top class accommodation, the room decor and staff are excellent. Location is also superb, I will be back and would highly recommend this hotel. The oosterpark is beautiful and once the refurbishment is completed this place will be unbeatable.

We LOVED our stay at Hotel Arena. Despite staying during a time of quite intensive construction and updating of such stunning and old architecture, you would not have known it. All guests during such time are welcomed with a complimentary beverage and construction generally takes place when you're not in the hotel and galavanting the streets of Amsterdam. The hotel...
