A nineteenth century prison in the Netherlands has been converted into a Hotel where guests sleep in the former cells.

The prison in Roermond, which dates back to 1863, was in use for nearly 150 years until 2007.
Dutch hotel group Van der Valk, remodelled a total of 105 prisoner cells into 40 rooms and suites that open out to a lounge in the prison hallway. The Hotel opened in 2011.

The Hotel rooms are designed with modern furnishings,with each room retaining its original door. There are four luxury suites included, named The Jailer, The Lawyer, The Director and The Judge.

The courtyard now serves as a cafe and terrace surrounded by olive trees. Other facilities include a herb garden, a sauna and a number of hotel bars.

I found out that there are other Hotels like this remodelled from prisons. They are Liberty Hotel in Boston,the Malmaison Hotel in Oxford, England, and the Jailhotel Lowengraben in Lucerne, Switzerland.

I think its a very creative and stylish way to remodel the prison. What do you think?
