A nice hotel on the edge of a beautiful park. The rooms are modern but ours was too small for a double room. Very tight space. The staff were helpful but were not that insterested in helping with our booking query.

This hotel is in a beautiful location of the edge of the park. It was being upgraded while we were there but this did not detract from our experience. Close to the Metro and the tram it was convenient for getting in to the city centre. The local markets is a great place to browse. The staff are friendly and...

Very friendly staff, but the hotel itself is only acceptable during summer. It was cold all over the place. The room had a far too tiny radiator, the air condition was not able to warm up the room but made the air very dry. The quality of the breakfast was poor. I'm just glad that the personnel was ambitious, helpful...

I booked Hotel Arena based on the guest reviews on trip advisor, the aesthetically pleasing photo's provided and its 4 star ratings.This was sadly not the case when we stepped into our room, where we were shocked at how constricted the space was. We were also shocked to find that our white bathroom sink had a huge stain within it....

What a beautiful place to stay, it started whilst walking into the park where the hotel is located. A fantastic serene place in a busy city. The restaurant is located at the front with a very natural feel making use of a lot of wood, plants and flowers. Apparently the hotel is refurbishing a bit, but we did not sense...

Got a great deal on the room no complaints. However, the location was hard to get to centre and would require a lot of Uber's in order to get to and from the centre. The two floor rooms were great and the size of the rooms are excellent
