5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at hotel arena for four nights. Received a free room upgrade which is always a bonus! Bed was extremely comfortable, with a nice bathroom and lots of space. Location is very good as it keeps you away from the chaotic city centre, while it still being easy to get there via a tram or walking. Would stay again

My partner and I stayed at Hotel Arena in July 2016. The hotel itself is quite nice, the rooms are large, bar has a good atmosphere and we were given a free upgrade when we checked in. The issue at the moment is that the front of the hotel is undergoing a fairly extensive renovation which resulted in quite a... More

We stayed at this hotel 24th-27th July 2016 and it was a pleasant stay. On arrival to the hotel we were a little apprehensive as to the entrance however, it was a good entrance considering all the building work that was happening which was not disruptive to us. The staff were quite helpful with directions and booking our taxis when... More

We attended an international conference at the University of Amsterdam, and the Hotel Arena was a 10 min stroll away. Weused our museum caard (59.90 euros) to visit many museums by tram. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. They sold transport tickets and organised an airport transfer in an electric taxi (44 euros). Our room was unusual. The hotel... More

We decided to spend a weekend in Amsterdam from our home in Italy. We chose the Hotel Arena from its great reviews and the good deal we had. The only reason this does not get an excellent is because of the construction being done on the premises now, but I assume it will be wonderful when done. The room was... More

Great hotel although when we arrived were alarmed to see building works going on, however there was no noise & very comfortable room. Very tight staircase up to the bedroom so not suitable for less able people perhaps & bathroom was a smoked glass box off the lounge area so privacy an issue, nonetheless would stay there again as we're...

Chose this hotel as location was good and we've seen good reviews. Rooms are newly renovated but construction is still on going in other parts however this does not affect you. Restaurant is reasonably priced and serves good food. 100% recommended for hassle free relaxed stay.

Nice dinner on a warm summer night on the terrace. What is excellent is the generous set up with the tables spread out on the terrace. Staff very professional and friendly. I had a disappointing minestrone as a starter but my friend's Vitello Tonnato was great, as were the two main courses (Cod and Confit de Canard). When commenting on... More
