This hotel was a jail before which makes it kind of special. This makes both the overall structure and the rooms different than any other place I have been. It is modernly furnished with a real design feeling. Clean rooms and common areas. Average breakfast. Kind service. Only drawback the lighting in my room (ground floor) was really not strong...

Hotel located within a relative walking distance from train station. Hotel is similar to other boutique hotels I've stayed, rooms are different size and decor, room I got was not big but had a small table and two chairs, no AC but was this was no issue due to weather, no phone in room, a bit odd was that the...

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...

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...

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...

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...
