It was previously a place from which people desperately wanted to leave. As one of the Netherlands’ most feared prisons for almost 150 years, Het Arresthuis was not a place you would want to stay. But following its closure and something of a makeover, people are now paying good money to spend a night at the former jail. The 105 prisoner’s quarters have been converted into 40 spacious rooms, including 24 standard rooms, 12 deluxe rooms, and four suites, all of which feature modern furnishings and chic interior design. All of the rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a flat screen TV, free WiFi, and even a personal coffee and tea machine.
