Nicest hotel in town

Design, nostalgia
This hotel is charming in every way. What was once the town's jailhouse has been turned into the coolest BnB. You sleep in cells (with none of the discomforts of old days), have breakfast in the old chapel and take you coffee in the interrogation rooms. Put on your striped pyjamas and savour the nostalgia - it's the details that make this place unique: heavy steel cell doors, original stairs and brickwork, all updated to the standards of modern times. Location is perfect, just a short stroll to the centre of Almelo.

loveliest hotel I've ever seen

very nice, interesting environment, lovely staff (owner?)
I was welcomed by (probably) the owner, she showed me around. There's a bar with self-service coffee machine downstairs, breakfast on the first floor, rooms, or should I say cells are in the main building. I didn't know the building used to be a prison (it's trivial if you speak Dutch) (also trivial if you look around). The rooms used to be the cells. My room was on the 2nd floor, actually the size of two cells, modern Everything really nicely decorated, very well run hotel indeed. Breakfast continental, delicious.

Vlot inchecken, vriendelijk en goed hotel

Vlot, vriendelijk en goed hotel
In het centrum gelegen, mooi hotel. Vriendelijk ontvangen en grote kamers. Ontbijt was voortreffelijk. Een opmerking: in de douche geen enkele mogeljkheid om iets op te hangen, een handdoek oid.
