OK, this hotel is a somewhat different -- in its history, it design, its room layout, etc. We're fairly traditional when choosing hotels, but booking Hotel Arena worked out very nicely. The room was spacious (we had a loft room) with a good bed and furniture. The loft area doesn't offer much vertical space and is unsuitable for people who... More

Although every time i spoke to some one at the recep. About any problems including this one, they started off giving me a reason and excuse first and... More

Lovely hotel, beautiful interior. We were offered a free city map and a free drink each on arrival. There is construction work going on but other than the appearance of the front entrance you wouldn't know it, we didn't hear any noise at all during our stay. Not sure I'd describe it as 5-star but it was certainly nicer than... More

Hotel Arena is a very classy five star hotel at 3 star prices. A beautiful building with original features and VERY large rooms. The double shower is a rare find and a nice bonus. Not the most central of hotels but still highly recommended. When I stayed they were undergoing renovations so the entrance was quite obscure, but as soon... More

The hotel is under construction but it didn't impact us at all. They have a temporary walk way up to reception. The building is old but it is clean and some part are historically beautiful. Check in was efficient and we were given information on how to get around. We walked a lot but found a quaint little area to... More

The hotel is a little farther out than I would have chosen had I'd been given a choice. The hotel was nice, although breakfast was ridiculously pricey. We weren't informed that the hotel was under construction prior to our arrival

The hotel was kept clean, with huge windows so there was plenty of light at all times. It is not very centrally located but the area feels safe with plenty of access to trams and buses which are very regular. Also, dappermarket is very close by (restaurants and shops). Overall a good experience.
