Really enjoyed staying here. Very friendly staff, clean well maintained rooms. Lower the mirrors though as we are all not 6ft plus lol. Very close to bars / restaurants. Train station about a 5 minute walk away

This hotel/B&B is a former prison. It lacks the hospitality of a B&B, and the perfection of a boutique hotel. If you want a bathroom inside your room, the cellblock may not be your room of choice. We stayed in the former office of the deputy head of the facility. The toilet and shower are inside the room, without the... More

Having been many times to the lovely region of Twente in the eastern part of the Netherlands, it was a nice surprise to discover this new hotel in the centre of Almelo. An old prison that has been converted into a hotel with former cells turned into nicely decorated rooms - two cells make one new room. The entire place... More

Beautiful building on the inside and the outside. We had a large room. Unfortunately the bathroom missed a door and hooks for towels, but did have one of those shower curtains that sticks to everything. Breakfast was your typical continental affair, with pre-packaged everything. A little bit disappointing for this price.

We decided to spend our first anniversary in one of the bigger rooms in this hoel and it was a great choice. The room was super comfy and very stylish. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The hotel is within a walking distance to the city centre. The breakfast was fresh and tasty. The only downside would be the lack... More

Don't be fooled by the exterior, this place is fab! Literal translation is prison hotel! Recommended by a friend I'd stay here if I was anywhere remotely close, town centre is a short walk, so restaurant no problem, and this hotel oozes character. Beds are comfy too. Breakfast is adequate, could do with a little more hot choice, but given... More

I found this place by accident some time ago - I was tired of other hotels in the region. The HvB and it's owners look after you well, and are lovely to be with. I have stayed in a number of different rooms, each has its own lovely style.

I stayed there on business over 30 times over 2 years and would go again if I could. Each room is decorated with care and kept spotlessly clean - some of the rooms are very impressive, particularly the shower/bath facilities. The staff and owners are friendly and helpful. Breakfast isn't much but it's good enough - the selection is a... More

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
