Het Arresthuis Hotel, Roermond – Netherlands

February 25th, 2013 by retail design blog

Het Arresthuis is a 19th-century-prison turned luxury hotel in the Netherlands. The newly re-purposed jailhouse has been completely redesigned with chic, spacious, modern motifs while maintaining its rich history as a former penitentiary. The building’s new function invites visitors to take advantage of the hotel’s unique Deluxe and Comfort suites while indulging in the venue’s relaxing amenities—a sauna and a fitness center. Doing time never sounded so good!

The facility’s 150 holding cells have be transformed into 36 luxurious rooms and 7 suites, including four special suites known as The Director, The Jailer, The Lawyer, and The Judge. These notable quarters are situated across the establishment’s former warden chambers and sports area. Though they all offer similar perks like a comfy double bed, a rain shower, air conditioning, a flat screen TV, free WiFi, and even a personal coffee and tea machine, each suite is said to have its own character and style.

Additionally, the hotel has several communal areas that include a bar and restaurant. With a good sense of humor, the establishment jokingly assures visitors that they’ll be offered a scrumptious menu that consists of more than just water and bread.
