Belgian Hotel Offers Goldfish Rentals to Lonely Guests

A hotel in Belgium offers lonely customers the opportunity to rent a goldfish to keep them company during their stay. When you come into the hotel a sign offers goldfish rentals for ($4.17 USD) per night. The Hotel near Brussels has offered the fish rental service to guests for the past several years with great success. According to the hotel manager, the idea was to surprise the guests and people really react to it, posting to social media. The idea first began just to keep guests entertained during check-in, but the fish became so popular they expand the service. Each fishbowl has a name-tag attached so you’ll never forget the name of your new bubble-blowing friend. The gold fish are well cared for, many having lived at the establishment for over 4 years. The gold fish are housed in a big fish-tank in the housekeeping department, with a shelter, oxygen and plants…….Ed
