Double or Twin DUPLEX - ROOM ONLY
Stayed 3 nights in September 2018
Excellent”
Great Location, good public transit connection. Duplex rooms not suitable for people, who have problems with steep stairs. Breakfast costs 17,50-19,50€ per Person...is expensive, but Amsterdam is expensive and it is a great looking buffet. Parking is 30€ per 24 Hours....also expensive but nothing cheaper in direct area. Very comfortable bar/Restaurant, and hotel is right beside a lovely park.

Interesting hotel but room was sad”
The hotel is nicely located next to a park. The restaurant and bar looks super cool and invites to stay with open fire and homey design. The whole building has an old historic feel and displays art in the hallways- very nice. The staff was very nice too. However the room was sad. Several light bulbs didnt work. The room was very sparsely furnished and the bathroom was very small. Its an old renovated building but my room just wasnt worth the price.

The best hotel in Amsterdam”
I’ve stayed in a few places in Amsterdam but this hotel has become my favorite one. The rooms are decorated with the love for detail and are super cozy. The staff is amazing and the location is a short 5 min drive by bike to the center. Highly recommend this hotel :)

Lovely hotel ”
Great location in the park with a lovely bar and restaurant downstairs. Very clean, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival we had to pay £50 as a holding fee which we were unaware of but have been assured we will be getting this back in 5 or so days, but other than this fantastic stay and easy access to tram stops.

Pros: beautiful and Ineresting building, great location, relaxed but stylish restaurant/bar, outside seating, near tram stop, lovely big room, secure parking, address problems quickly and fair compensation for problem with lift and key card. Cons: lift broken, long way to room, key card failed, expensive parking

Beautiful hotel ”
We found the hotel was beautiful sat to the corner of Oosterpark, rooms were clean with plenty of space. Breakfasts were great, lots of choice and very tasty. We did find the location was quite out of the way from the centre, it was a good 40 minute walk into the centre, however there was trains and trams if you didn’t want to walk. Would highly recommend hiring a bike from the hotel as it’s a good way of getting around Amsterdam and seeing lots of the parks and canals. All in all a lovely hotel

What a Gem”
We stayed at Hotel Arena for three nights, the final leg of our six week European holiday before the long flight home to Australia. What a gem it is! It is located within a former Catholic orphanage, so access from the street is not ideal and there are parts of the hotel which are not in pristine condition. For us this jut added to the appeal. Our room was modern, spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff are courteous, friendly and efficient. Step out the front door and you are in the stunningly beautiful Oostpark. Here a fascinating glimpse of the real Amsterdam is on show at any time of the day, a million miles away from the regular tourist traps. This hotel carries our strongest possible recommendation.

Unbelievable ”
Was nice and welcoming at first glance. We were given a room right next to the locked corridor door. Each time guest that stayed at the same corridor as us needed to go to their room, they needed to open that door, same as us. Due to having very thin walls, each time the door opened, we could hear it and it was also bloody loud. We did not have any peace especially when we were sleeping. I felt like I did not sleep for 2 nights straight. The next issue is regarding housekeeping. After leaving the hotel for the whole day, we came back to a clean room but our stuff and wet towel was simply thrown into our luggage. Furthermore, I noticed my fully zipped backpack was unzipped for unknown reasons. Just after moments of us arriving back, a male housekeeper randomly opened our room door without knocking first to ‘ask’ us whether our room has been cleaned or not. This was also at 8p.m, and I do not think housekeeping is done around this hour. Another issue is the shower drainage. It is semi blocked and it takes considerable amount of time for water to flow out and in the end flooding our whole toilet. With all these problems, the hotel tried to reimbursed us with only tea at their cafe but we did not accept it because the damage has been done. Never coming back again. 2/10

DO NOT recommend, very bad”
We booked a duplex room for 2 nights, but they gave us a standard room. We thought it was a mistake but the staff told us that it's just the same with the duplex room. They are both "STANDARD". They can arrange a duplex room for us later now but we had to wait. We were exhausted, so we just accepted the standard room. But there were so many problems with the room. The air-con was not cool enough and the heater is always on even the air con is on. The room was very hot and stuffy. Also the fridge was not working, and according to them, it's not a fridge but a "minibar" so it's not supposed to be cold. HAHA. The hygiene of the room was also a major problem. Stinks were everywhere. The corners of the room were all dusty. Overall the room was like a 2-star hostel room but charged us for €160 a night. The two female staffs' attitude were horrible, rude and not helpful, especially the blonde one. A male staff upgraded us to a better room though, which was much better.

Gorgeous Hotel in Gorgeous Park”
I want to stay in Hotel Arena every single time I'm in Amsterdam. The rooms are gorgeous and the staff is wonderful. It's located in a park that is beautiful and scenic. It's in a really quiet area. I would say for the price you should get just one or two additional amenities (like toiletries/lotion/etc) but I'm happy to pay again for the service and atmosphere. The size of the rooms is great and the bed is very comfortable. It is a bit far away from the center - about a 30-40min walk, so if you prioritize being in the middle of all the action, this is not the hotel for you.

Not a good experience!!! You can find better hotels and spend less!”
We stayed for my birthday at the hotel Arena, the first room they gave us was on two levels, with a very narrow and steep stairs to “climb” to access the bed, We had to ask for a different one since I have a bad knee and couldn’t do the stairs all the time! The second room was on one level, but there was no clean towels for us and form the hand sink only super hot water was coming out. So we call the engineer that after 20 min mange to solvw the issue After A couple of hours, I was taking a shower, and there was no hot water, so we call engineering Again..after another 20min this issue was solved. The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable, There was this tiny mattress on top of a bigger one that was keep on slipping down. We had dinner At the restaurant downstairs where the food is average, but if you order a cockatils the waitress porobably forget about it and delivers it to you after 20 min when you are already half way trough your meal! Book Somewhere else! Not Worth it!!!
