Nothing deluxe about this hotel and rude management

Would not recommend Wed, Feb 3, 2016
I was extremely disappointed with this hotel, room standards-shower flooded bedroom, location- very far from centre and above all the fact that huge renovations were underway which we were not aware of even after making enquirys with the hotel direct-appalling service and several staff need some serious trainings including the female manager with no customer care skills at all. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

Long Weekend

Would recommend Fri, Jan 29, 2016
First time in Amsterdam, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel its self is very large, and is currently under construction, which had no effect on us and we were actually compensated with a free drink for the trouble. We were given a large room, with a seating area downstairs and a large double bed above, which was very comfortable. The room also contained a large bathroom with sunken bath, which was lovely. The location of the hotel is out of the city centre, but is easily reachable via a short tram ride. We were rented bikes with the help of the staff and rode into the centre from the hotel on a daily basis, which was a great way to take in the city. Great hotel and fantastic city!!

Unexpected trip, great results

Would recommend Sat, Oct 24, 2015
Hotel Arena was such a great place to stay - the rooms were excellently presented and the staff infinitely helpful! Definitely planning to stay again next time I visit Amsterdam. The building work that is going on right now at the site had no impact on my stay at all and I cannot wait to see how it turns out!

great place to stay

Would recommend Thu, Oct 22, 2015
This hotel is outside the busy center of Amsterdam but easily reached by the tram. It is on the canal, and is a very interesting old building that has been very strikingly and creatively transformed. The bar is great and you can sit outside by a fire pit. Feels very upscale and a very reasonable price. The staff was wonderful.

A grown up weekend away

Would recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2015
The hotel for us was a distance from the city which we travelled each morning and evening by tram. We would have preferred to have been closer to the City. The hotel itself was a delight, and staff were very good and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was on the second floor built into the eaves, cool and comfortable, but being all in white had a cold effect. The furnishings were comfortable but cold looking. The bathroom was the most disappointing, none of the usual accessories were there, the soap and hair shampoo were in an attached container in the shower and by the wash hand basin. There were no sanitary bags, cotton wool or tissues, towels were not changed unless you requested same. Breakfast at 15 euros was plentiful but we thought expensive because it was ordinary, although plentiful, some of the ingredients in the hot dishes were not so and rather spoiled the breakfast, for the price the breakfast was limited. Everywhere was clean and tidy and generally efficient.

Lovely hotel

Would recommend Sat, Sep 12, 2015
The hotel arena was a perfect hotel, lovely staff, clean room, super comfy bed, lovely decor . This hotel is only a 10 minute tram ride into central sq, close enough but far enough away to get a peaceful nights sleep. Will definitely stay here when we come back to Holland.

A Little Spooky, but Fun!

Would recommend Wed, Jan 7, 2015
The hotel is a renovated orphanage with a lot of history. The building itself and our room had a lot of character and it was fun to explore, albeit a little spooky. The morning breakfast is a pretty good deal, and the on premises night club are a plus. We had two dinners at the hotel. They were both quite good, however I would recommend exploring other restaurants for a more authentic feel.
