Marking the end of a long transformation, Amsterdam’s Hotel Arena has finally unveiled its brand new wing, just in time to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

Designed by local studio Team V Architectuur, the property fully embraces its secluded location at the edge of the city’s Oosterpark with double-height glass walls that give the new rooms a calming outlook. This continues downstairs at Park, the hotel’s recently renovated restaurant and café, where a no-frills menu, with crowd-pleasers such as falafel sliders, draws locals and guests alike.

Interiors by Tank design studio highlights the features of the hotel’s original 1886 building and restored chapel, while making the most of its new extension, bringing the property firmly into the 21st century.
