 "Good service and good time!"
Really liked this hotel. The staff were all really helpful and if you had any issue did their best to resolve it. There was a few things though that did annoy me. Firstly we weren't told that we would have a deposit taken out on the room. Only €100 euros but it would have been nice to know. Secondly, the rooms were amazing but I personally felt the cleanliness for a four star hotel could have been better. This may just be because my job has me picking up on these things daily and I may have been being picky. Other than this, great!!

 "Happy New Year"
This is the 2nd time I've stayed at the Arena Hotel and I was even more impressed with the quality. The rooms are fantastic as is the decor of the rest of the hotel. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I'd say the only downside is the location (about 10 minutes tram ride to Leidseplein) however the tram stop is about 60 seconds walk and the trams are every 10 minutes so it's so easy to get into the centre!All in all it was a hugely enjoyable stay and I will definately be looking to stay here again!

 "Excellent service, funky design, unique experience"
Stayed for 3 nights; the hotel staff was very pleasant and quite helpful. Overall our stay was excellent, clean and the rooms were uniquely designed. Although - the bathroom/toilet was visible to those sitting in the living room - not the most comfortable thing to have people watch you while you're on the toilet! The location of the hotel though isn't ideal for those visiting Amsterdam for the first few times. Not much around the hotel and it's quite a trek into town or a 15 euro cab ride (not bad, but not ideal if you're constantly heading into town). Would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

 "long weekend stay"
We had originally booked this hotel on line. The service was fantastic very friendly . The hotel es about 15 -20 Mins walk to centre or you could catch tram which was 5 min walk from hotel. The room was very modern and clean. Would recommend to stay at this hotel to anyone

 "Beautiful Hotel"
We really really liked the Hotel Arena in Amsterdam. This Hotel just looks amazing and the Rooms are really really nice.The may can improve the cleaning and also the walls are kind of thin but I think that's normal for a Hotel.The breakfast was also really good. Parking was expensive but nothing special for Amsterdam.The Hotel is really good located. The city is not very far but at the same time it is in a quiet area.

 "Enjoyable stay in a quiet hotel close to the metro and within walking distance to the centre of town"
Great to have a hot bath after getting soaked in the rain. Nice one night stay in the refurbished hotel. Went to sleep with the rain on the roof.

 "Amsterdam Trip"
My partner and i enjoyed our stay and found that the room was very quiet and ensured a good night's sleep. We also thought the bathroom and shower was very good too

 "4 stars? Not a chance"
The first appearance of the inside of the hotel is quite original, although very dark, and the outside is in construction, which at the moment does not give it a nice appearance. The room was OK - even though it was split level, which we were not told about beforehand (the sleeping part of the room is above the bathroom, which you get to from a wooden spiral staircase) - but there is almost zero space to put the clothes. The hotel didn't clean the room the next day, despite our request at reception when we didn't notice a 'Make this room' sign on our door, and despite their assurance that it would be cleaned.The TV is set up in a way that you can not even use any of the local channels, rendering it useless, unless you are willing to pay for the service. Basically there is absolutely nothing complimentary with the price you pay, other than the shampoos! We feel that for the price that we paid it was definitely not worth it, especially considering we didn't spend much time in the room. There is no way that this hotel can be classed as 4 stars.
