Who are we?
Hotel Arena is located at the edge of Amsterdam city centre, in the middle of the green city oasis, the Oosterpark. The monumental building from 1888, transformed through the years from Roman-Catholic girls' orphanage, to sleep-in to now a four-star boutique hotel. The rich history is combined with a modern design, which is reflected in the 140 renovated hotel rooms, PARK Café-Restaurant, the 5 creative meeting and event studios, the Salon which is furnished as a library and of course the showpiece of the building; the KAPEL!
PARK Café-Restaurant is the beating heart of the hotel. Here you can sit down and discover the specialities of our chef, the Chefs' Evergreens, combined with his culinary and surprising dishes that you cannot find anywhere else. The greenery is not only reflected in the design, but also in the local and fresh products we serve.
