“Good hotel, simple, tourist, no luxury.”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

The hotel was clean and confortable. Location is a disadvantage because there is nothing around it. The staff was nice, we didn't have to wait for our room or for check out. Breakfast and dinner were included, and it was ok.

Room Tip: if you are looking for a good location, this is not the hotel to choose.

My wife and I stayed here as part of a travel talk tour. We arrived at 7am after a 10hour flight and expected to sit in the lobby until we could check in but we were pleasantly surprised our room was ready on arrival and we were shown to our room immediately it was such a nice change to be able to do that instead of having to wait for hours. The room was large as was the bathroom and the bed, the bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. We had good TV reception and free Wi-Fi in our room.

The restaurant was pleasant and we ate two breakfasts and one dinner there. The al carte menu was no different to any other hotel but the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. There were hot and cold dishes and plenty of breakfast pastries. Do not expect a full cooked breakfast as you will be disappointed but there were still pancakes, sausages spreads and tea and coffee. The reception area is nice and the location was good about 2 minutes to the man strip with plenty of bank machines and restaurants to choose from.

The Arena Space Hotel is a fairly simple and basic tourist hotel, one I suspect does a lot of business with tour groups. The rooms are basic, but reasonably comfortable. I spent two nights there, and had one dinner and two breakfasts, all were simple but decent. Breakfast in particular was good, lots of pita, zaatar, olives, hommos, but also boiled and scrambled eggs buffet style. Dinner was a tasty grilled chicken.

Some rooms will be able to get wifi Internet from the lobby, others will not, but there's lots of seating in the lobby to allow you to do what you need to do. There are several restaurants and shops relatively close by as well.

The positive of the hotel is that the staff I encountered were all very friendly.

The negatives:

It is located in the middle of nowhere. There are no convenience stores, restaurants or anything nearby.

The check in took ages for no apparent reason and I had to sit for at least 30 minutes to be given a room. This was at around 11pm, when I was tired after a long day of travel. Not appreciated.

The room was small and dark. The furniture and fixtures added to the darkness and need upgrading and renovation. The carpet and even the bed felt unclean, even though it was clean. The bathroom was small and terribly lit. The shower stopped working after the first 2 seconds.

The breakfast was horrid and the sitting space was unpleasant.

I couldn't wait to get out of here in spite of the fact that I arrived late at night and was to leave early the next day.

I would not recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights recently.
Room was compact, clean to an extent. The AC only blew out hot AIR, so had to turn it off.
The breakfast is easily the worst I have ever had, and I would not recommend.

I wouldn't really recommend this hotel, as there is nothing closeby at all, not even a cornershop.

What was nice is the fact that after a tiring journey we were welcomed with a cold drink. ;) And the porters were nice and polite. The selection of dishes for dinner or breakfast was very poor... Free wi-fi in the rooms is definitely a big plus. And there's a very cheap supermarket just round the corner.
