    Fabulous

    The staff was very nice and helpful. The disco of the Hotel is very good and allows free entrance to hotel guests. The surroundings are quiet, but with easy access to public transports. The rooms have a nice, modern design.

    The only thing that we think could be improved is the sound isolation of the rooms, because inside the room we could hear noise coming from the disco, until 3am.

    We stayed for a week and got an upgraded room which was nice. The staffs were very polite and helpful. Location is excellent, my 2 years old son liked it very much, very close to oosterpark (near by) and artis zoo. Not far in wetteringschan, we have an extremely generous and cheap (so many customers, check their website!) Indonesian/Suriname restaurant, warung Sreneng Makmur. With Holland Pass practically we explored Amsterdam and excursions to Volendam/Marken/Delft/Den Hague/Madurodam all started at Damrak which could easily be reached using Tram 9 from the hotel. Other central of attractions, Leidseplein is reachable by Tram 7 and 10. Albert Heijn minimarket is very complete and just in front of the tram stop, 5 minutes walking. Overall: excellent experience

    A small thing, the bathroom will always be wetty as the water splash from the shower is not 'well-contained' by the floor construction

    We liked all of the hotel, from arriving at reception we were treated perfectly. Our rooms were lovely, clean and very modern. The bathroom was great, the two televisions were an added bonus. Breakfast was delicious and the food on offer was lovely. We loved the variety and the staff who served us were very polite, helpful and interestting. Saturday was busy in the hotel with a wedding and hen party but we were still served quickly and did not have to wait long. In fact the hotel was buzzing and the atmosphere was great. Overall a great weekend and we would reccomend the Arena Hotel to anybody. I am sure they would feel the same as us. Thanks to the Arena for a great stay!!

    They put us in a room above the main entrance to the hotel & directly opposite the entrance to the nightclub that ran until 8am Saturday morning. The noise was unbelievable it was impossible to sleep. The staff were rude & unaccomodating. They offered no compensation for a night of no sleep. They moved us to another room for thd final night of our stay. I would not recommend. They have not responded to our written complaint either.

    The man at reception the morning we checked out was not like the rest of the staff. He came over as grumpy & abrupt.

    The deluxe room was really nice. We loved the bathroom that had a nice big bath. The decoration of the hotel is beautiful. Possibility to lock our luggages in the hotel for free.
