When we sat down to book the hotel we went to the hotels own website. Everything looked nice and modern. When we arrived we got a room that was nothing like the pictures we saw. This was the kind of room that made Harry Potters cupboard look like a presidential suite. So, if you're looking for something good, I suggest... More

I am very happy about my 3 nights at Arena Hotel. The room was silence and clean. The receptionist very kind and nice with everyone. The breakfast was good as well. It is very close to the central station.

We stayed for 2 nights. it was so clean and nice. The only problem is that they have no elevator to the 7th floor. It will be an issue if you have heavy bags. It was 10 minutes walking distance to the central. The price was fairly good. The reception was present all the time.

I usually pick that hotel for 1-2 nights when on business trip to Gothenburg. It's economic choice. Clean with regular breakfast stuff. Nothing extraordinary nor luxury, just a good bed and breakfast.

Hotel Arena is only 5-10 minutes walk from the Central Station and has two supermarkets and a number of bars close by. It looks a little shabby from the outside but the bedroom was immaculate. Staff were friendly and helpful. During my stay a lot of the guests seemed very young which gave the place more of a "hostel" feel... More

I stayed for four nights. Only at arrival did I see staff at the reception desk. Unfortunately I forgot a slik blouse in the room when I check out the hotel. It was brand new I had never worn it. I called the hotel, they said they would call me back - it never happened. I called them again, they... More

I'm wary of showering too much praise upon Arena Hotel as we visited in March and were lucky to get one of the seventh floor rooms that give onto the terrace. I would imagine that in high season you pay lots for those. In summer, too, the small single elevator serving all seven floors might well get a bit clogged.... More

I visited here for 3 nights and think it was a great find! Inexpensive yet offered everything I needed as a solo traveller. Room on 6th floor was cosy, modern and had everything I needed including hairdryer, flat screen tv and a very comfortable bed. Heating was on throughout entire stay as far as I could tell, so it did... More

We paid for a standard double room, when we arrived it was very basic with 2 single beds pushed together and the bathroom looked and felt very much like the type of bathroom you would expect in a hostel (more like a wet room). The pictures are only of rooms on the upper floors, all of the lower floors are... More

Also they have a huge error in their reservation system and this happened wz us and wz other customers infront of us. Location... More
