    Great experience

    Very unique prison converted to a hotel. Great views in the morning Only mention is its a bit of walk from the train station to the hotel especially if you are dragging your suitcase on cobble stones

  • 8.0.Very good

    I like the price, location, cleanliness, restaurant, would have been nice to have a small bedside table, a larger bathroom mirror, bath towel bars. Perhaps a “curb” on the bathroom floor to help keep shower water contained. I would stay here again as it’s is because of price, location, free parking, cleanliness, comfortable bed, friendliness and helpfulness of staff. Please don’t change a thing if it means raising the price.

    Prima hotel, fijne locatie

    Mooie locatie aan het IJsselmeer en centrum van Hoorn. Kamers zijn schoon, bedden lekker, verder basic. Echt een hotelkamer om in te overnachten, niet om gezellig in te zitten. Ontbijt lekker, vers gebakken broodjes, lekkere koffie. Vriendelijke ontvangst.

    Nachtje in de cel met een top ontbijt

    Het is eenvoudig maar erg leuk om in een echte cel te slapen. Erg gastvrij en een top locatie.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Opfylder ikke kravene til et hotelværelse. Vinduet kunne ikke åbnes og der var meget varmt. Ingen dør til badeværelse. En regulær fængselscelle, hvor man ikke kan kigge ud af det lille vindue og hvor der var mørkt og klamt . Vi valgte derfor et andet overnatningssted. Vi fik kun halvdelen af beløbet tilbage og vi beder Expedia om at refundere resten .

    Una pena

    Curioso hospedaje pero las habitaciones abuardilladas una pena, inutilizan la mitad de la habitacion y haciéndolas muy incomodas. Sin aire acondicionado gracias q ponen unos portátiles porque desde q amanece y le empieza a dar el sol es imposible aguantar el calor. No hubo servicio de habitaciones y el desayuno buffet algo pobre pero bien el primer día, el segundo nos lo sirvieron en mesa y peor porque hasta q nos pusieron todo fue lento (una sola persona para prepararlo todo y atender las mesas de la terraza) una pena.

    leuke lokatie in een oude gevangenis. In het zelfde gebouw zit ook een bioscoop en een museum.

  • 4.0.Fair

    sehr störend empfand ich keine Tür oder Vorhang zwischen Schlafraum und Toilette. Leider auch alles ziemlich Dreckig.Das Konzept mit den alten Zellen ist schon gut, könnte aber besser umgesetzt werden,Auch die Außenanlage ist sehr ungepflegt.Wir haben 2 Nächte dort verbracht und auch die schmutzigen Zimmer hingewiesen, aber keine Änderung am nächsten Tag schade eigentlich.

    Leuke ervaring

    Het is een leuke ervaring om in een voormalige gevangeniscel te overnachten. Veel leuke authentieke details. Ondanks de zeer hoge temperaturen een top service van de dames in de bediening.
