Het Arresthuis was previously one of Netherlands feared prisons for a period of almost 150 years. It was not a place anyone wanted to stay. Following its closure and a huge makeover, the hotel is now a hotspot and people are paying lots of money for a night in the cells.

If you visit the place, you get to enjoy services like a fitness center, sauna, central patio that has olive trees and a garden of organic herbs.

The prison also features lots of bars-some you just can’t get past and some where you just sit and have a drink.

Het Arresthuis after opening in 1862 had gained the reputation of being an intimidating jail. It was later abandoned for some years only to reopen in 2002. It was closed permanently in 2007 and construction of the luxurious hotel began.
