    4/5 Good

    Beautifully located right on the park. A little bit of a walk to the best parts of the canal. Great restaurant. Overall the hotel could do with a refresh.

    New Favourite Amsterdam Hotel

    We had the most amazing stay in hotel arena. We visited for our 5th anniversary and was gifted the most beautiful suite (we cant thank you enough!). We had been here prior to renovation and now complete this is definitely our new favourite hotel in Amsterdam. Perfectly located, in a quiet local area with easy access to the metro. The hotel restaurant/ bar is the perfect setting looking out over the lake. If you want to avoid the tourist areas of Amsterdam but still have easy access to them this place is perfect.

    Dirtiest hotel I’ve stayed in and terrible service

    I travel extensively for work, and this was the most disappointing hotel stay I’ve had anywhere in the world. The hotel room was run down and dirty, with water stains in the ceiling and a pervasive smell of mold in the sitting area, bedroom, and deep in all of the bedding, including pillows. Housekeeping left a wet, very dirty towel on top of my clothes INSIDE my suit case. Housekeeping walked in on me without knocking, and the repair person walked into the room without knocking while I was in the bathroom to “fix” something I had not complained about. Ultimately, we canceled housekeeping service and just asked for fresh towels, glasses, coffee and tea to be delivered to us in the room. Housekeeping came with half of those things. I told the front desk, and they did nothing to remedy any of these things until they offered a free drink at check out.

    Beautiful hotel with a great restaurant vibe. Every room is very different (and a bit strange) but has its charm. Bathrooms need a renovation (some mold and water leaking). Great stay overall

    3/5

    Don't be fooled by the Instagram-worthy photos - Hotel Arena is just ok. The location is fine. It's easily accessible by public transit, but a bit of a hike with a suitcase. We arrived around 5pm to find out our room wasn't ready. The person who checked us in wasn't very helpful - she told us to wait 10 minutes and then left. After 30 minutes of waiting with no updates, we decided to lock up our luggage and head out. When we came back around 8pm, the same person checked us in and made no effort to apologize for the inconvenience. Not the best first or second impression. Hotel Arena must've spent their entire design budget on the lobby and restaurant. While they're beautifully designed, our room was not. Zero privacy for the toilet - I don't care who you're traveling with, no one needs to be able to see in to the restroom from every angle. There were also several cracked tiles on the bathroom floor, everything seemed a bit dingy. All that to say, I'd spend a little more and stay somewhere closer to the center.
