We recently stayed at the Arena for 4 days on a city break to Amsterdam. The hotel building was originally a large hospital which has been converted to a modern hotel situated adjacent to a large park. There are fairly extensive building works in progress at the moment which when finished will allow direct access to the park. These works... More

The Arena is a lovely hotel situated within walking distance of Amsterdam's main tourist attractions. The hotel has comfortable airy rooms and provides good food. We were overwhelmed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, whose aim seems to be to make your Amsterdam visit as enjoyable as possible. There is a host, Sander, who has a wealth of...

Very nice looking hotel. Our room was very nice and clean. Trendy style. Good speed wifi. One of the best 4 star hotels I have been to in Europe. I was a bit disappointed about the staff, they were not as friendly as I'm used to. The staff came into our room few times while we were in the room... More

Stayed here for my birthday weekend with my boyfriend. Prior to our stay I emailed the hotel as we had early flights and would land way before check in, dropping our bags at the hotel was no issue, fast responses via email from the hotel 👍🏾. On arriving to the hotel you could see that there is construction taking place... More

Super good hotel that looked really old and interesting. Unfortunately, the hotel isn't haunted and we really wanted the hotel to be haunted but other than that, we had a good time. Sander is also great. I have attached a picture of me very stoned smiling because i have fond memories of your hotel.

I spent 4 nights and 5 days at the Hotel Arena and diced with giving it a 3 or a 4. The reason for a 3 is - -The rooms could have been 4 star, however they needed some TLC. -The "top floor" of the room would be unusable for anybody who is older/larger or just had too much to... More

Stayed 3 nights at Hotel Arena. The building was till undergoing renovations but we were compensated with a free standard drink. Tbe place is a little but of a maze, the hallways are dark and quiet but very squeaky. You can hear all the footsteps, especially past the rooms at night. No matter how careful I trod, I could descend... More
