A chic new hotel just opened in Amsterdam, with amenities including a luxurious pool and a tennis court. Unfortunately, you can’t stay there – but your fish can!
Located in the city’s Schiphol Airport, the Goudvissen Hotel holds finned friends for Dutch families heading off on trips. According to the news service NRC, vacationers who book their travels through travel agency D-reizen, which sponsors the hotel, will have access to the service. Each fish will get its own private suite (the fish swimming around the pictured tank are for display only) in order to keep them healthy and prevent them from getting mixed up.
And if your fish is to – gulp – die while you’re away, hotel employees won’t try to pull a switcheroo; instead, they’ll wait until you return and offer to replace it with one of their display fish. The service will continue for as long as there is demand and plans for expansion will be based on how popular the service is. Be sure to send your fish a postcard!
Would you check your fish into this hotel? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
