Lonely Planet review
With more facelifts than a Hollywood star, this building, bordering Oosterpark, has morphed from chapel to orphanage to backpackers hostel to, now, a modern, four-star, 116-room hotel with a trendy restaurant, cafe and nightclub. A recent makeover means minimalist rooms have a designer-industrial feel, and most of the chic, black-tiled bathrooms were designed by Philippe Starck.
Some rooms are multi-level, so the bathroom is on a separate level from the bed.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Arena and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Oosterpark & South Amsterdam.
