We visited Ribe on our way back from Copenhagen to Germany. We found the town lovely and really enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately, the two nights we stayed at Gamle Arrest were a real low point.

The owner/proprietor was not really interested in our custom and there was no brochure or explanation of the place - just a... More

The hotel is a converted old prison, which we thought was quite interesting. The rooms were a bit small though and split into two mini floors, the top 'deck' having a small table and 2 chairs. the room had a sink but you had to go to the end of the corridor for the showers and didn't have any hot...
