Other reviewers have covered the prison stuff, so I won't bother. Our room was very comfortable. Breakfast was good and the hotel is in an interesting neighbourhood about 10- minutes walk from the harbour. The price was fine also and the staff very helpful. The main complaint I would have is that the prison walls were very effective at stopping the wifi signal, so we had to use our wireless devices in the hallway. In fact, there were regularly several people in the hallway surfing the net, including one teenager who seemed to live there. Oh, and don't rent the hotel bikes unless you are used to bikes with pedal brakes and like riding heavy iron machines that are hard to manouvre. We gave up after 30 minutes and rented proper bikes from the nice store across the street.
