The hotel is located in an old prison, which gives it a special experience. The old cells are transformed to hotelrooms, and the central hall with the galleries and castiron stairs are still in place.
The rooms are nice, try to get one in the prison block, as there are also rooms in other buildings which probably were guard wards. Also nice, but you 'll miss the "escape from Alcatraz" feeling.
Rooms are well equiped, bathroom with bath / shower, mini bar, TV and airconditioning.
Breakfast Is very good, eggs are made to order any style you like, fruit, salmon (of course, it's Scandinavia) etc.
There is free Wifi, but in the outer blocks coverage is not good, but you can sit in the lounge (where there is also a computer you can use for free).
Hotel is located 15 a 20 min walk to the city center, but there is also a tram stop in front of the hotel. Then you're in the center in 5 min.
