Prison becomes luxury hotel
A Dutch prison has been turned into a luxury hotel.Similar to the English hotel Malmaison Oxford (which used to be Oxford Prison), the Netherlands' Het Arresthuis is now a classy inn that you arrive at in your Bentley instead of fleeing by tunnelling out.
The old cell doors still remain but the prisoners are long gone (I hope). As the Het Arresthuis website says, "Today, people can enjoy a care-free and casual stay here."
I'm sure it's 100% Not Haunted At All.
From its opening in 1862 to its final shuttering in 2007, Het Arresthuis was one of the Netherlands' most feared prisons. According to the Daily Mail, Het Arresthuis "quickly established a reputation as an intimidating jail." As opposed to those soothing, mellow, welcoming prisons I keep hearing about.
