Hotel Arena Architecture (1)

Architecture Adrianus Bleijs

The first stone was laid in 1886...

but the architect soon ran into financial troubles and wasn’t able to complete the plans as intended. After Paul Hermanides took over the project in 1992, the last two wings comprised the final puzzle pieces of the original. The structure has assumed a number of socially minded identities in its time and today is a blissful union of old and new.

Interior design Tank

Oak wood, marble, cast iron, and natural stone provide a feeling of permanence inside the hotel.

Many ceilings tilt to harness natural light that spills in through large windows, illuminating vintage and bespoke furnishings—including pieces by Zuiver, Moooi, HK living, Ferm Living, and Kave Home. The hotel’s gallery space has showcased names such as Teo Krijgsman, Max Kraanen, Marjolein Blom, and Tim Hoekstra to date.

Art, community, and commercial events abound...

Thanks to an abundance of event space, the hotel plays host to a number of community-driven get-togethers from spring markets to monthly exhibitions in the gallery space. The concierge also has a wealth of knowledge concerning the goings-on around town, from concerts to restaurant openings and beyond.​

Reborn & Converted Wonders History in the Making

A building with a socially minded history...

Built in 1886 as the Sint Elisabeth Gesticht orphanage for catholic girls, the structure was then occupied by the German Nazis from 1944 until the liberation in 1945, and then became a nursing home for the elderly, a care home for people with dementia, and a “sleep-in” for people experiencing homelessness. Before becoming Hotel Arena in 1992, the building also hosted the International Youth Center for Culture and Tourism from 1992.
