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.

I booked this hotel as a Christmas present for my boyfriend, I was a bit weary as some reviews said the hotel was different from the pictures but our room was amazing! I was expecting two single beds that we had to put together but we had a HUGE queen size bed, so soft and

The hotel is about a 25 minute walk from town which feels like no time among all the canals! Inside, the hotel has an upmarket feel, everything is dark wood and marble with impressive feature staircases. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. We arrived an hour

I booked this hotel as the accommodation for a trip for my friend and I to see Amsterdam for the first time. From the maps, I thought it would be a little further out but found that it was very handy to get to Centraal and the main attractions in the city. The hotel is situated

My partner and I stayed at this hotel previously and were excited for our trip back. We absolutely loved the setting, the park, the cafe and common areas and the room we had previously was great. The double level room was nice (although I agree the stairs could be challenging if

Dear Malamute6, Thank you very much for your kind feedback, pity that this time it didn't go well during your stay, I do understand that you didn't feel good about and your suggestions will be taken absolutely in consideration, but let me put some points straight, our team at the reception would never put you in a different room type and will ask more money, unless you go for a upgrade. Rooms are measured by their m2 and not how old they are as we refurbished all of them last year in july, further on, we are indeed busy with the painting and doing the finishing touches in some of those, pillows are also ordered, But some of the services like , face clothes, bottles of water, full minibar, coffee machine, will be something else, these services are of course easy to manage, but comes with a price tag, also many plastic usage while we try to make that less.... I will take all your points with love in to consideration and make sure that we learn from here, again, deep apologies. Kind regards, Ozgur Eylen General Manager

"Request a single story room if you are not good with stairs"
"Do not choose a loft room. The stairs are treacherous!"
"Very expensive for the rooms they offer. With less money you can find much better places to stay."
"Upgrade: village king suite. Park king also good but more expensive."
"Try the studios. Those are interesting."
