“Experience pays off”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013 via mobile

Great hotel managed by the Van der Valk group who are fous for their value for money concepts. They now have also this luxuruous concept that is syill affordable. Welcone with prosecco, sleeping in former prison cells and a nice breakfast. Evem they had the phone charger I forgot. First time I rate 5 stars in Tripadvisor

We stayed in cell #12. A perfect stay. A quirky, unique and fashionable hotel. This hotel was once a working prison, so the renovations could have taken on a cheesy tone but this hotel was so classy yet quirky, right down to the bathrobes with inmate numbers on them. Great beds, amazing amenities (the shower gel smells like coconut!), friendly and professional staff that go above and beyond, huge breakfast buffet and even a welcome glass of bubbles.
I loved it and would recommend it for a lovely, fun, quirky stay to anyone.
Thank you!!

Room Tip: There is a little but of construction going on next door, so we heard some noise in the early mornin...

Stay here quite frequently on business, certainly stands out from today's standard fare from mundane chain hotels. I always look forwards to staying here and will continue to do so every couple of weeks when I'm in Roermond on business. Rooms are like nothing else I've stayed in, really unique and have a great feel. They don't feel at all plush but nevertheless are very comfortable, immaculately clean and perfectly presented. It would be so easy for the hotel to rely on the uniqueness of the building and neglect the detail but every little detail seems to be attended to.

Food is very nice, the tasting menu is certainly as good as some of the better restaurants at home but a little pricey to have every time I'm here at 67€+ for 6 courses. The a la carte menu has some expensive choices with starters at around 20€ and mains about 30€, that said I have had some fantastic food off the short menu which is more reasonably priced with plentiful portions.

Stay here, it's an experience that as to be done at least once!

Really enjoyed our recent one night stay in Cell #9. Our room was made up of three cells, with the middle having one of the most comfortable beds I've slept on. The other two cells form a small sitting room and the en-suite; two showers in one. This is a brilliantly designed hotel and the whole thing has a stylish feel rather than one that feels like a prison theme park. The staff are excellent with a glass of Prosecco on arrival a very nice touch. Breakfast was great, drinks were reasonably priced but dinner looked a bit pricey so we headed into town, which is minutes away. A great place to stay and Roermond is well worth the visit; it has the best chocolate shop 'La Bonta' with delicious hot chocolate you make yourself.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor which was fine. As an old cell block, the second floor could have indu...

Together with my friends we stayed here for a night, and combined it with shopping in Maastricht on Saturday and the Roermond outlet center on Sunday. The hotel is on 5 minutes walking from the outlet which is great, because we didn't need to take the car to go there.
The hotel has a very friendly staff, the interior is great and really in style of what the building used to be, i.e. a jailhouse.
We also had dinner in the restaurant of the hotel, i.e. Damianz, which was superb!

Room Tip: I believe all rooms are great!

We travelled to Roermond with friends and to enjoy Carnaval with my step-daughter and her boyfriend who live in the city.
The hotel is well situated, just a 5 min walk from the centre of town, but in a very quiet location. There is free secure parking on site.
The staff were wonderful: polite; friendly; helpful and more than willing to recommend other restaurants. Although we were told that we couldn't go into the restaurant in fancy dress, they had no problem with us coming and going in an assortment of daft get-ups!
The rooms were very comfortable, retaining the essence of the prison, although I would have liked a door for the toilet (there are some things that one prefers to do in private!).
Breakfast was excellent, a lovely choice of bread, pastries, cheese and meat, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, sausage, bacon and scrambled egg on the buffet, various other egg dishes cooked to order and as much tea or coffee as you can drink.
We ate in the restaurant twice and whilst it's a tad on the expensive side, it was absolutely delicious and very well presented. The waiting staff even wear gloves to handle cutlery and crockery!

Nice, friendly and modern hotel that makes you smile. Enjoyed our stay here when visiting family and were surprised by the quality and service. Nice room (#012) which was three former cells combined, with a great shower but NO bathroom door... Really? Send your roommate for a walk when you need to do your no. 2's.
