The Old Arrest is a former prison, but has been converted into a hotel and restaurant.
The hotel is located next to the beautiful square around Ribe Cathedral, and next door to the old town hall, approx. 500 m from Ribe Station and Ribe Art Museum. This hotel does not have its own car park, so it is the public car parks in the city center that must be used, however, it is possible to unload and load outside the hotel.
The Old Arrests has 11 rooms, 3 of which have their own shower and toilet in the room as well as the suite with its own shower and toilet. In the old cells there is an elevated living area with 2 chairs and a table.
On the 2nd floor you will find the hotel's TV and living room for guests. The old prison yard has been turned into a cozy courtyard ..
Children of all ages are welcome.

Good to Know

Check-in on Sunday and Monday must take place at Den Gamle Arrest from 14.00 - 15.45

Check-in from Tuesday to Saturday must take place at Kolvig, from 14.00 - 21.30, which is located at Mellemdammen 13, 6760 Ribe. Here we recommend parking at Sankt Peders Gade (see appendix).

If check-in is desired at a different time than the above, please contact us by replying to this email or calling +4575423700. Or send us an email and we'll explain how to find our key boxes.

Regarding parking, we refer to the attached file, look for the blue parking marks where there are parking spaces Ps, Pn, Pø which are 48 hour parking, where you can stay freely. In the city center there is 2 hour parking from 8.00 - 18.00 Monday to Friday and Saturday from 8.00 - 14.00. Pc has 4 hours of parking from 8.00 - 18.00 Monday to Friday and Saturday from 8.00 - 14.00. Outside these times, there is free parking. You are always welcome to stop in front of the hotel for check-in, but we recommend that someone stays with the car, as checking in quickly can take 3 minutes. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the parking options in Ribe city centre.
If you have a disabled person's license plate in your car, you may park freely in the city's parking lots without a time limit.
From Ps it is 550 m to <%hotel_name%>

If there is anything we have to cater for in connection with breakfast, e.g. allergies or diets, this must be disclosed before arrival, so that we have the opportunity to take this into account and thus create the best possible stay in our Arrest.
