Check out this former prison, Het Arresthuis, in the Netherlands that was closed in 2007 and recently refurbished as a luxury hotel.
From the inside of the guestrooms, you wouldn’t really have any idea that it was a prison. The prison’s 150 small cells were converted to 40 guest rooms. I love the barrel vaulted brick ceilings.
But in the common areas, there is a distinct vibe of incarceration. I wonder what the mood and tone of the hotel is like. These guests appear to be enjoying the atmosphere!
