A stay at Het Arresthuis, is certainly a special experience. This historic location was never voluntarily visited between 1863 and 2007. But now, since April 2011, guests gladly come here to enjoy the luxury and comfort.
Het Arresthuis used to be a detention centre before slipping into disuse for some years. In 2002 it was used once again as a makeshift building to detain so-called 'body packers'. The jail was permanently closed in 2007, and was swiftly followed by structural renovation, transforming this prison into a hotel.
The prison used to have 105 cells, which have been converted into comfortable hotel rooms. Four suites were created where the prison manager's chambers used to be. The names of the suites refer to the memorable jailhouse era: the manager, the warder, the lawyer and the judge. Three former cells were used to make each comfort room and the recreational areas were converted to make deluxe rooms. Both types of rooms are fitted with all conveniences, such as a double bed, desk, sitting area, safe, minibar, flat screen television and a private bathroom with a rainshower and toilet.
