Ugly building is a luxury hotel - level 2

19-04-2013 06:00

The second ugliest building in the world was renovated. The old TV tower in Prague was changed into a five-star hotel with great views.

The guests can enjoy the apartments that are seventy metres above the ground. They can also check out strange baby sculptures moving up the tower. If you pay 1000 euro for one night, you can also get a personal assistant. You can use a limousine too.

If you can't afford to stay in this expensive hotel, you can still go up the tower and enjoy the view of the city.

Interesting words: renovate (renew), check out (look at), sculpture (statue).

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