What an amazing hotel, this former prison! Friendly welcome with a short tour and escort to my 'cell' :-D Would love to come here again, although the city isn't very exiting. Tip: when parking on the corner bring € cash, the machine doesn't accept cards!

A perfect blend of a unique building/interior, caring, personalized service and pragmatism (= all you need but no luxury) - I have been staying in this hotel a couple of times and just love it. Highly recommendable!

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
