Hotel Arena is a business-friendly hotel located in Amsterdam's East Amsterdam neighborhood, close to Tropenmuseum, Royal Palace, and Artis. Additional points of interest include Magere Brug and Nederlands Scheepvaartmuseum.
We thought the hotel was great! Our room was very nice and beds comfortable. Reception were very accommodating and they addressed issues promptly and responded with great customer service. I would certainly stay at this hotel again. A more reasonable bed and breakfast rate would be welcomed as I felt it was a little pricey without breakfast. Looking forward to seeing the renovations of the hotel in the future as the exterior was looking a little tired in places. All round great hotel!Comment of B. Rebecca , United Kingdom the 2015-03-23
"Again for sure. "
The staff is very friendly - rooms are clean and spacious - I was a bit unsure about the location but it's actually not far from the city at all. The Hotel bar is also very nice to sit at. All in all very good 👌🏼 for sure coming back.
"Compact meeting in church like loft feel"
Large meeting room was an old church with beautiful paintings in the ceiling. Something old, something new - very nice details in interial design. Mimosa for breakfast together with bacon & eggs, croisants and fruit sallad. Loved the room where 2 floor hotel room wit veery high ceiling. Loved the athmosphere. The hotel is located next to a pretty park with optimal jogging conditions. Also close to city center, tram, walk (2 km) or taxi. If you want to experience something different -try this!
"Fantastic beds, great hotel, good value."
My partner and myself stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. After some poor reviews due to building works we were a little worried. This was completely unwarranted as we had a fantastic stay with no complaints whatsoever about the hotel. We were accomodated in a loft room and have to say it was fantastic. The room was spotlessly clean fitted with a large bath and walk in shower and the bed was by far the comfiest bed I've ever slept in. This hotel is set in a fantastic park and is only 6 tram stops from central station, making it ideal location wise as it isn't too far away. To summarise we will be coming back to Amsterdam and most certainly will be staying at Hotel arena. Thankyou.
"3 Night Stay"
This hotel was a children's orphanage years go so it is under going some construction work, despite this our stay was fabulous, from the young man on Reception, Jake who greeted us on our arrival, who was very informative, helpful and pleasant. Our room was small, but comfortable, very clean, and the room was cleaned and tidied each day, with fresh towels left each day also. We were disappointed with the breakfast choice, found it expensive for what was on offer! This aside Would love to go back when all the work is finished.
The room isolation was very poor. Walls looked like paper. The room was not warm after fixing an issue with the heat pump. In general i was expecting quite more for a more than 100€/night hotel. The location was ok.
