Hotel staff helpful friendly appraochable. Surroundings stunning and beautiful for walks and bikes alike. Great setting for a wedding, anniversary or just relaxing. Great shopping, great food, fabulous people. Will come again....Downfall the renovations but it was not too disruptive. So well done guys👍🏼

I booked Hotel Arena based on the guest reviews on trip advisor, the aesthetically pleasing photo's provided and its 4 star ratings.This was sadly not the case when we stepped into our room, where we were shocked at how constricted the space was. We were also shocked to find that our white bathroom sink had a huge stain within it....

What a beautiful place to stay, it started whilst walking into the park where the hotel is located. A fantastic serene place in a busy city. The restaurant is located at the front with a very natural feel making use of a lot of wood, plants and flowers. Apparently the hotel is refurbishing a bit, but we did not sense...

Got a great deal on the room no complaints. However, the location was hard to get to centre and would require a lot of Uber's in order to get to and from the centre. The two floor rooms were great and the size of the rooms are excellent

We were very excited to stay here. When we arrived, the place was clean and looked like it had lots of history. The room is nice, just like the pictures, and has stairs that lead to a loft where the bed is... that's where the bad part comes in. Heat rises, and the hotels A/C WILL NOT BLOW COLD AIR...

By day this hotel sits in front of a beautiful lake in a park, by night the twinkle of lights and glass fronts entice you into a scrumptious hotel restaurant. The restaurant has an industrial feel, modern and full of greenery. The staff throughout the hotel are friendly. The rooms are clean and light too. However it is undergoing construction...
