We stayed for 2 nights. it was so clean and nice. The only problem is that they have no elevator to the 7th floor. It will be an issue if you have heavy bags. It was 10 minutes walking distance to the central. The price was fairly good. The reception was present all the time.

I usually pick that hotel for 1-2 nights when on business trip to Gothenburg. It's economic choice. Clean with regular breakfast stuff. Nothing extraordinary nor luxury, just a good bed and breakfast.

Hotel Arena is only 5-10 minutes walk from the Central Station and has two supermarkets and a number of bars close by. It looks a little shabby from the outside but the bedroom was immaculate. Staff were friendly and helpful. During my stay a lot of the guests seemed very young which gave the place more of a "hostel" feel...

I stayed for four nights. Only at arrival did I see staff at the reception desk. Unfortunately I forgot a slik blouse in the room when I check out the hotel. It was brand new I had never worn it. I called the hotel, they said they would call me back - it never happened. I called them again, they...

I'm wary of showering too much praise upon Arena Hotel as we visited in March and were lucky to get one of the seventh floor rooms that give onto the terrace. I would imagine that in high season you pay lots for those. In summer, too, the small single elevator serving all seven floors might well get a bit clogged....

I visited here for 3 nights and think it was a great find! Inexpensive yet offered everything I needed as a solo traveller. Room on 6th floor was cosy, modern and had everything I needed including hairdryer, flat screen tv and a very comfortable bed. Heating was on throughout entire stay as far as I could tell, so it did...

We paid for a standard double room, when we arrived it was very basic with 2 single beds pushed together and the bathroom looked and felt very much like the type of bathroom you would expect in a hostel (more like a wet room). The pictures are only of rooms on the upper floors, all of the lower floors are...

We enjoyed our visit at Arena hotel. The breakfast was very good, staff was friendly and the area around the hotel was calm. The location was very good, short distance to the city center. Nice bathroom. All in all, good hotel for the cheap price.

“We had the 7th floor, which required walking up one flight of stairs (elevator only goes to 6th), but based on our room I would say all are probably good.”

“The fourth floor is done out in black, with matching decor in the bathrooms and complementary grey in the rooms. Incredibly cool.”
