Belgian Hotel rents goldfish to guests

The Hotel Charleroi Airport in Belgium is offering a very unique service to provide comfort to its guests...by offering a goldfish renting service! Located in Gosselies, the hotel allows guests to rent a goldfish in their room for company from just £3.20 a night. So solo travellers will never be lonely again.

The hotel has been providing the service for quite some time, however gained popularity after a picture of a rented goldfish went viral on social media.

In a statement to The Independent, the hotel's manager David Dillen provided assurances that the fish were well looked after and that they have a big fish-tank in the housekeeping department with a shelter, oxygen and plants for when they're not keeping a guest company!
