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.

Hotel locates close to city center (could be rich by tram or walking about 25 minutes), opens directly to nice park. Quiet hotel in old building with non-standard plan. Clean rooms, welcome staff, good breakfast and bar/restaurant at the evening on terrace looking to the park. Good place for staying far from main city crowds. Remark - some rooms are far from entrance or elevator. Huge building waits more investments (the owners try to do they best).

We were a visiting group of cyclists from the UK. The support vehicle could have been an issue but staff were very helpful in securing a spot right opposite the Hotel. Rooms were luxurious and the breakfast was fantastic. Unfortunately we chose to follow a recommendation and eat at Clos nearby. That's another review! As it turned out it would have been better to eat in house and I am sure on the basis of the rest of the experience it would have been very good.

beautiful location, nice building. Few remarks: - the wash-hand basin was stopped up - the wire connecting the watercooker and power socket was too short - the temperature in the room was on arrival 25°C (november!). How about some energysaving?

All through a very nice place to relax and enjoy time. Food and accommodation were excellent. Only negative point is, that it is a pity, that the bar closes at 01:00 even though a lot of barguests still had a good time in the bar and was not yet ready to go to sleep. This resulted in ending of a fine evening quite “unpleasant”.

We stayed for 4 nights and the hotel was amazing. We were on the 3rd floor in the eves with great views of the courtyard and park. The hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. We ate at the hotel once and just had drinks and bites in the bar which was lovely. As it is not in the centre of town it feels like a great place to escape to after a busy day explore the city. We would highly recommend staying at Hotel Arena.

We stayed for 3 nights. The hotel is well located and offers a standard service. The deposit of 150€ was a surprise. I would suggest the hotel to revise the cleaning procedures in the rooms. When I went in the room the impression was that it was not “shining”…. The amenities were very good. I would recommend my friends to stay there

The Hotel itself is stunning, no issue with anything during our stay. The restaurant attached is appalling. I ordered a wagyu burger and my girlfriend ordered a Caesar salad. The egg in the salad (odd choice anyway) was undercooked and horrible. The burger (ordered as a medium Well) was still raw in the middle and cold. When we received the food we then waited 20 minutes for service in order to tell them about the issues I was informed I’d ‘ordered it medium rare so it was fine’ When we finally did get the chance to query our issues the manager came over and told me (argued with me) that it was completely normal and the kitchen had approved this. I don’t profess to be a connoisseur, but when the burger is stone cold and barely cooked I’d say that’s not normal and if it was I’d have serious worries about my restaurant. We were then offered a ‘discount’ for less than the price of a Pint when we had only eaten the chips that came with the burger and we’d barely even touched them. All in all a horrendous experience and would definitely not recommend to anyone staying in or near the hotel.

just got back from a 3 night visit, and This hotel was amazing, check in was easy but you had to pay 150 euro deposit which was fine but they didn’t expect cash so we had to use our card so make sure you have your bank card and we got it back 2 days after we got home 😁 you have to pay hotel tax which was around 60 euro (this goes on what room you have) but they just minus this from our deposit which was easier for us. The staff was lovely and polite (read a review where they said they were rude) but they were so helpful and friendly. We had the standard suite and I mean WOW… we was in room 275 (this is one of the better ones we was told) which was on the corner so you can see the view of the park which was lovely. Even had an egg swing upstairs so you can just watch the night away 😍 the rooms were cleaned every day and the bed was so comfy. The only thing we was expecting was a bath but only had a shower which wasn’t a massive deal. The park is a lovely walk. The city centre was 30 min walk or a short tram ride which was cheap enough and there is a shop just down the road by the tram stop Everything is pretty close so we manage to ram in as much as we could visiting several things in just a day! We would definitely come back to this hotel. This is the nicest hotel I’ve ever been in 😍 my only tip is that most of the Amsterdam don’t expect cash so you will need to take both with you! :)

We both really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Very nice location near a park, aprox 10 min walk to the nearest metro station which brings you into the city centre (3 stops). Staff were friendly, we had dinner 1 night in the hotel and it was lovely. Only negative is that our room was on a split level and very hot in the upstairs area. There is an air con unit but based downstairs.
