The Huis Van Bewaring was recommended to me by a colleague from work. I typically prefer to stay in smaller hotels when I travel for business so I get at least some feel of the local culture, Huis Van Bewaring is all that and more. The jail was completed in 1926 and was opened by the owners as a hotel... More

Het Huis van Bewaring is an old prison, very nicely renovated into a B & B. Different types of rooms all tastefully decorated with eye for detail. The lady of the house receives her guests warmly. I slept very well in the comfortable bed. No restaurant on the premises, only breakfast. Definitely worthy.

An award winning hotel for design. Using an old prison building. The rooms are all individually designed to a high standard, if not a little unusual. The breakfast is continental, but very well executed. The dining room used to be the prison chapel, and has original stained glass windows. Hotel owners and staff very friendly and helpful.

Hidden in a old jailhouse with a lot of details kept, it's thé place to be and to stay in Almelo. Business or pleasure wise. Very nice welcome and friendly. Well decorated in the jail house style but very warm and cosy. It's breaths nostalgia, warmth and style for a affordable price. Breakfast is very good.

Good use of an old prison. Locacted in the city center near bars and restaurants. Familiar cosy atmosphere and good rooms. Easy to find and nice staff. Good breakfast. Will return if I have business in the area.

I was here only for a night because I had to work early the next day. But still the experience was excellent. A warm welcome, a reserved parking spot and the atmosphere of an old prison. A very nice cosy room with plenty of space. You can sit and relax in the luxury seats, work at the small desk or... More

Highly recommend the Huis Van Bewaring. From the moment we entered the building we were welcomed. Shown all the facilities including the coffee machine and breakfast room. The decor is impressive and unique. The toilet with no door was easily overcome with the other person going to get a coffee. Breakfast was plentiful and by candle light who could resist... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this rather unique hotel which was formerly a prison, the owners have done a wonderful job doing it up. Our room was quite luxurious and very comfortable. The free wifi was very good and the breakfast menu more than adequate. We really appreciated the care the owners gave us, they were very helpful and... More

Super warm welcome from the owner who made sure that I knew where I could help myself to coffee whenever I wanted, how to get out and back into the hotel (it really is so much more than a B&B), quick tour of the breakfast room (which was the chapel used by former inmates). I had a super room the... More

This hotel, created from a former prison is an experience that is worth visiting. I was there for a business meeting, but it would also be a good vacation destination. Fine room, with the bonus that they DO NOT close the huge steel prison cell doors when you sheep. The location, near several restaurants is also ideal. With all of... More
