Staying in Het Arresthuis is unquestionably an unusual experience. This historic location was certainly not voluntarily visited between 1863 and 2007. However, since April 2011, guests are happy to stay here to indulge in luxury and comfort. Het Arresthuis originally functioned as a house of detention. It subsequently stood vacant for years before being utilised as a makeshift detention centre for 'drug mules' in 2002. In 2007, the jail was closed for good and the former prison was transformed into a hotel.
The prison used to have 105 cells that have been revamped into comfortable hotel rooms. Four suites have been created on the spot of the prison director's former quarters. The names of the suites refer to the prison's history: The Director, The Jailer, The Lawyer, and The Judge. The Comfort Rooms comprise of three cells merged into one, while the former recreation areas were used for the Deluxe Rooms. Both room types come with every modern convenience, such as a double bed, a desk, a sitting area, a safe, a mini-bar, a flatscreen television, and an en suite bathroom with a rain shower and a toilet.Surroundings
