I stayed there a couple of times, had one of the converted cells and a really good night's sleep. I ate in the brasserie which doubles as the reception and enjoyed both the food and the view of the harbour. The hotel is very good value and close enough to use as a base for wandering into the old town.... More

if you travel by car, drive around the building and all the way in the back you will find a secure parking; just press the right button. Building includes hotel and cinema so can be a bit noisy. Rooms are small. Downstairs gives you the real prison "room" experience, upstairs is more normal rooms. still a good experience. Check your... More

The old prison in Hoorn has been converted into a hotel, brasserie and a cinema. On the lowest floor, a number of cells have been transformed into guest rooms. It really is cool to spend the night in the cell - the huge iron door closes behind you and you get an impression of what it must have been like... More

What once must have been a place to punish criminals, has now been reshaped and redesigned in a remarkable hotel-cum-cinema-and-museum on Hoorn's top location, i.e., a little island located just before the city's harbour. The hotel is fairly straightforward, but comfortable - the beds deserve an extra compliment, they were very comfortable. We had the top rooms of the third... More
