The tower is the city’s tallest building, at the equivalent of about 70 stories high, and it was a despised symbol of the communist regime that started building it in 1985. Locals have gradually come to accept it since its completion in 1992, but a 2009 international survey placed it second among the ugliest buildings in the world.
Giant three-dimensional babies, 2 meters long, appear to be crawling on the exterior. The babies, created by artist David Cerny, were originally installed as a temporary work in 2000, but they proved so popular that they were made a permanent feature, adding a humorous element to the tower.
The room itself is decorated in a contemporary style with exposed wood and an open-plan bathroom with freestanding tub and a glass-partioned shower. Room facilities include a stereo, a computer, and a seating area with a flat-screen TV. The room also offers a mini-bar and a Nespresso machine, as well as a walk-in closet and designer toiletries.
The restaurants and bar of the tower can be accessed by a private spiral staircase.
