1st stay here on business and can't fault this place at all. I stayed in a previous guards room, beautiful room and high quality rooms. Super value at under €100. The hotel is full of history... don't hesitate I'm booking this hotel

Loved this hotel. Looks fabulous, room was spotless. The breakfast was great too. the only part I did not like so much, was not having a door on my bathroom, which is of course how a jail cell would be, so a little authenticity I suppose. My room key was deactivated by accident one evening, and although there is no... More

after a lotto of publicity we went to see Huis van Hilde . The place looks professional and is setup roomy. But they mist the opportunity to make a inspiring exhibition. The tags are unreadable , the audio soloed and boomy the narration not to understand. All the fancy ipads give the same dull info. There is not realy something... More

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.
