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.

Stayed 1 night in the hotel, very nice refurbished old building with a long history. Despite all the Covid-19 rules our stay was made very comfortable. Nice breakfast as well as dinner served in the room. The rental bikes were also comfortable and we travelled in 20 min from east to west Amsterdam. The hotel is near the Oosterpark, nice to walk or enjoy the sun.

Hotel's Favorite
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.

Me and my wife stayed in the Arena Hotel for a week during the Corona Summer in August 2020. We arrived by car and had not trouble finding the hotel. The parking garage is directly "under" the hotel and is affordable and secure! The hotel is located next to a beautiful park and a small skatepark - both were a big plus as we are avid inline-skaters. The staff was super friendly and we felt very welcome and safe as every one was working with masks on and handgel for disinfection your fingers was stationed at every corner and lots of space to avoid fellow travelers. The breakfast selection was really good and fresh but perhaps a bit limited. A big plus was the possibility to rent bikes form the hotel for a fair price (not much more expensive then anywhere else). The room was very stylish and comfortable, the bathroom a bit small but oh well. Two things that bothered the us was a.) the hotel is really big and has several buildings and dozens of stairs and elevators. The walk from the lobby / restaurant to took an eternity and with all of our bags was a bit much. The hotel definitely needs to work on repairing their aircons and elevators, as most of both were broken and did nor work which of course is less then perfect in the middle of summer with temperatures above 28 degrees. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the hotel to family and friends.

Dear Onniska, Thank you so much for leaving behind your review! I am very happy to read your it regarding all the positive aspects! Unfortunately we were also surprised about our elevators that had some challenges regarding the temperature...But we luckily we solved this issue. However I can imagine this was definitely not convenient for you. I have noted your point regarding the AC for our maintenance manager. Despite these points I am happy to hear about your experience and hopefully we can welcome you back in the nearby future! Warm regards, Evelien Helder Front Office Manager

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 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!
