Clock Tower Hotel Room: Alone Time

This is a torture chamber designed to give nightmares to people who hate alarm clocks. Just kidding. It’s actually a one-room hotel where guests get to have an entire train station clock to themselves. In other words, it’s a torture chamber designed to give nightmares to people who hate alarm clocks.

Hotel Gent is actually a temporary room set up 75ft from the ground and built around the clock tower of the train station in Ghent, Belgium. It’s the work of Japanese artist Tazu Rous, who wants people to experience the clock tower – which has become a part of the city’s landscape – in a new way, in a private space.

Just you and the clock. In your own world. Hold it close and never let it go. Hold tight. Because its hourly bells will probably blast you clear through the window.

You can stay at Hotel Gent for €105 (~$131 USD) a night.
