I stayed there a couple of times, had one of the converted cells and a really good night's sleep. I ate in the brasserie which doubles as the reception and enjoyed both the food and the view of the harbour. The hotel is very good value and close enough to use as a base for wandering into the old town....

The old prison in Hoorn has been converted into a hotel, brasserie and a cinema. On the lowest floor, a number of cells have been transformed into guest rooms. It really is cool to spend the night in the cell - the huge iron door closes behind you and you get an impression of what it must have been like...

What once must have been a place to punish criminals, has now been reshaped and redesigned in a remarkable hotel-cum-cinema-and-museum on Hoorn's top location, i.e., a little island located just before the city's harbour. The hotel is fairly straightforward, but comfortable - the beds deserve an extra compliment, they were very comfortable. We had the top rooms of the third...

“The rooftop rooms are far from spacious, are sunny, have a view on the lake but have low ceilings. I recommend to orient yourself to the other rooms that the hotel has to offer, as there are even (upgraded) prison cells among them!”
