why it isn't "nhà tù đó là một cái khách sạn" "một khách sạn" doesn't make any sense :'(

Are you sure "cái" is required here? I know classifier "cái" can accompany almost every noun but are you completely sure cái must always go with places like cái bệnh viện, cái công viên, cái bảo tàng... and that without "cái", it does not make sense?

that's just my opinion, i am not so sure about that. However, i think that "nhà tù đó là khách sạn" or "nhà tù đó là một cái khách sạn" would sound more fluently than "nhà tù đó là một khách sạn". Can you guys help me??? :'(
