Alcatraz in Hoorn but you get the key :-)
Awesome and unique experience. The breakfast was tailor made and the hotel overlooks the harbor. A bit like a local Alcatraz.

Very Good8.0
Close to central station
The hotel was clean and comfortable for our family group. Close to centeral station and close to other activities. Our room was in the front of the building and the noise from the street made it difficult to sleep. if the window was closed it wasn't too bad, but by the middle of the night the room was stuffy and opening the window made it too noisy to sleep. we used ear plugs and it was fine. perhaps request a room in the back of the building.
