Ugly building is a luxury hotel - level 1

Ugly building is a luxury hotel - level 1

An old tower in Prague is very ugly. It is the second ugliest building in the world. People changed this building into a hotel.

The hotel is very good but it is expensive too. Guests pay 1000 euro for one night. The rooms are seventy metres above the ground. Guests can also look at interesting statues of babies who are on the tower.

If you don’t wanna pay 1000 euro for one night, you can still go up the tower and see the city. The view from the tower is very nice.

Interesting words: tower (tall building), ugly (not beautiful), guests (people in a hotel), statue (model, statue), wanna (want to).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
