Hotel Arena is an extraordinary city hotel with deep roots in Amsterdam and with its feet in the grass of the Oosterpark. In the green shelter of our monumental building, we celebrate the contrasts that color Amsterdam. We encourage special encounters between ordinary people and ordinary encounters between special people. Are we the place where you eat, drink, work, sleep, dance. Where you talk and listen, discover and recognize, come home, go out and push boundaries.
Back to the origin
Hotel Arena has recently been thoroughly renovated. A whole new wing with Studios has been added and the Patio is more beautiful than ever. There is also an original, restored chapel, complete with stained glass windows. This dates back to the time when Hotel Arena was a Catholic girls' orphanage.
Later the chapel became a music venue and the orphanage a Sleep-in with dormitories and bunk beds full of young people. With the renovation, the hotel has turned towards the Oosterpark. This means that part of the original plan by architect Adrianus Bleijs has come true.
