Hotel Arena is very beautiful, it's literally in a big and green park. It's under renovation so it doesn't look so good. We have a good time there, workers on the hotel are nice. I wouldn't repeat my stay because the room was dirty, the bathroom was a mess and the stairs were mortal.

Second time visiting Amsterdam - this time with my best friend. First impressions of the hotel were amazing! It was under renovation but this didn't affect our stay. The staff were lovely/helpful and the room was insane - modern décor and 10/10 cleanliness. It was a fair distance to travel to the centre but there are tram stops/metro down the...

We absolutely loved the style, the furniture and the overall look of the Hotel and our room. We just were not too happy about the fact that you can hear absolutely every noise your neighbors make. Furthermore the bathroom was not perfectly clean and completely surrounded by glass walls (very pretty but not so practical). Apart from that we really...

Long weekend for myself and girlfriend (early-late twenties). We were kindly upgraded on arrival from a standard double to a studio. Great to start off the holiday. The room was clean and large. The staff were friendly and helpful. The setting and location was brilliant (yes a 20-30 min walk into "centre" but it was nice to stop off at...

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for his birthday. The room we stayed in was a standard but more like a studio! Staff were all so lovely and helpful. For an extra 30 euro they decorated the room with balloons 2 bottles of procecco and a birthday cake! Breakfast was great and wasn't too far from Dam square, would definitely...

Although they were rebuilding the hotel we had a very nice stay. And from the things I've seen so far, it looks very promising. Our room was very modern and clean. Very good and big bed. The location is great. I think that once it's finished it will be the place to be. We'll sure be back one day.

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...
