Overall I think that this hotel was great! It had a special atmosphere with the prison environment.
The rooms were nice and quite big. We had two rooms, so I got to see 2 different rooms. They were both basically the same, located in the (probably?) non prison cell area of the hotel. Comfortable large beds. Wifi worked really good, we got the password by calling the reception.
Room cleanliness was a little disappointment, the "feedback" questionnaire hadn't been exchanged (maybe they do not care about feedback?) So we could not fill in our opinion. We also found an old make up brush behind the trashcan in the toilet. So the floor in the toilet had most likely not been properly cleaned. Otherwise the room was (or seemed) clean!
Breakfast was good. Not the best I have ever had but very eatable. Very nice that the prison theme was to be seen the in the restaurant as well.
The restaurant was very good, very tasty food! Although the service was a little bit slow. I would eat there again!
The location is very central, you can walk to the city center in just 10-15 minutes. But you can also take a tram that stops right outside the hotel.
I would definitively stay at this hotel again! It was very nice and very cosy.
