Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 2, 2009

The room we had was new.It was very clean and spacious with very nice black and white contrast.The staffs were helpful and friendly.We didn't try their restaurant but it it was quite popular esp. in the evening.The hotel is far from the noise of the lively city but it's accesible to most of the main attractions of Amsterdam.So you really get a good night sleep;)

Directions: Take the tram 9 from Amsterdam Centraal Station,get off at Alexanderplein.Then you can either walk or take the tram 10,get off at K.Graversandestraat.

Guesthouse with the luxury of a 3* hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 7, 2007

I only stayed here one night and I loved the place. This used to be a hospital, an old age home and since the '80 a guesthouse and now it is a fine 3* hotel in the middle of Amsterdam. Breakfast is included, juices, coffee, thea, cornflakes, bacon and eggs, croissants, honey, jam,..... a lot of choice. This is a hip place on a good location in Amsterdam, easy accecable with the tram.

For a standard room you pay 119 euro.

For fans of Design Hotels

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 19, 2006

This is among many so called design hotels that are springing up as competitions to the Hiltons and other chain hotels. You can find many at This one is a little outside the city center in the home of a former orphanage. The church is now a nightclub that makes it convient for a late night of partying followed by a quick try up some stairs and down a hall to crash in your room. Then rooms were very basic though judge a vast improvement over the days when this was an orphanage. All the furniture was in the minimalist style favored by many design hotels. The room had a tv though it was small with few channels but then you are not coming to Amsterdam to watch TV. The only improvement was to create a lip around the shower as you had to be careful not to flood the decent size shower/bathroom combination. The breakfasts were basic but good with the same selection of breads, meats and fruit drinks. If you plan is spend your late nights at different hot spots be prepared to either walk or do a taxi as mass transit stops early in this city and other than the club at the hotel there is not much other nightlife.

Unique Quality: Church that was turned into a club and a beutiful courtyard where in nice weather would be perfect for eating breakfast at(we were there in April and it was still a bit chilly).

Directions: North of city near the 20 tram that loops the city.

A Great Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 13, 2006

Nice clean rooms in this former Roman Catholic Orphanage.

It started out as a youth hostel in 1982 and then went a bit more upmarket as a hotel in the 1990's.

One thing I do remember is that when you had a shower and weren't very careful, the whole room was flooded. Hopefully they have improved the rooms since I last was there.

Decent breakfast though. It definitely had that student hostel vibe going on.

Hotel Arena
This hotel is so nice !!!! Maybe in your guidebook they tells you it's a youth-hostel but it isn't anymore. They renovate the building and now they have 121 rooms with nice furniture...
