Staying at hotels can get lonely if you’re traveling alone. Well one hotel in Belgium is hoping to curb those lonely feelings by offering up something odd for its customers…

David Dillen, the hotel’s manager, says they’ve been renting fish to customers since 2013 and now the “gimmick” gets them a lot of attention on social media.
But while a lot of people responding to the tweet found the idea funny, there were also some concerns raised about the wellbeing of fish! Dillen stressed that the hotel takes “very good care” of their fish.
“They also have a big fish-tank in the housekeeping department, with a shelter in it, oxygen and plants,” he said. “When we think it’s necessary, we put them there for a few days.”
Would you rent a fish at a hotel?
