Situated right next door to Oosterpark and within easy walking distance of various tram lines, this hotel is in a great quiet location for a city break to Amsterdam. If you want to be in amongst all the action then this is not for you. There are only a couple of restaurants nearby, otherwise its best to hop on the... More

Hotel is under renovations but staff and hotel was excellent. It will be even better when complete. Nice courtyard to relax and have a drink. Close to trams, eats and grocery store. Easy walking to and from sights.

We have just returned from a three night stay here with six friends. The hotel is quirky and when the refurb is finished it will be great. Bedrooms were very comfortable, clean and well furnished and also very spacious. Nice modern large bathroom too. Restaurant and bar area good although drinks prices pretty high. We paid for breakfast on the... More

Usually pretty good at choosing hotels.....still haven't made my mind up about this one! A bit further out of centre than advertised. Some inconvenience with building work, such as no electricity so couldn't check in, have a drink until evening. Rooms clean and staff friendly. Twin beds a bit hit and miss.....mattress toppers kept slipping off and my daughter ended... More

The Hotel is currently under construction, and is located in a nice quiet area 15 – 20 minutes away from Dam Square.

We decided to visit Amsterdam for 3 days and stay in the hotel Arena as the reviews seemed really good for a 4 star hotel. Although the hotel is having work done it didn't effect us. We had read previous reviews so we knew what to expect and that the front of the building was going to look bit like... More

This lovely historic hotel has kept its old original features inside and out and has been sympathetically modernised. We had a loft deluxe room, with a king-size bed, which was very clean and comfortable. The modern room was also very clean and comfortable, with air con, and had good reception for the free wifi, but due to its quirkiness and... More
