Hotel Arena

's-Gravesandestraat 51, Amsterdam, North Holland, 1092AA, Netherlands

Fodor’s Expert Review

This grand complex, a former 19th-century orphanage, consists of a sleek hotel and charming café, tucked away inside leafy and serene Oosterpark. The hotel, which uses hot young Dutch architects and designers in its continual evolution, is strikingly austere. An impressive cast-iron staircase in the minimalist black lobby leads up to the rooms, furnished with modernist furniture by Gispen, Eames, and Martin Visser. Some rooms are split level and include a lounge area; others feature Jacuzzi baths.
