The appearance of a "tiger viewing room" at a zoo hotel in the eastern province of Jiangsu have sparked interest online over its unique decorative style.
Staff say the room gives wonderful views of the caverns, and the room is protected by explosion-proof glass.
This hotel is a parent-child hotel located in Nantong Forest Safari Park.
The rooms available to watch other kinds of animals are open and many of them have been booked as China's Spring Festival approaches.
The topic has gained over 100 million clicks on China's social media Sina Weibo,
with many netizens expressing their sympathy for the animals and their concern for the safety of tourists if visitors are allowed to stay in rooms from which they can gaze at a tiger.
"Both the tiger and I wouldn't be able to fall asleep, as it probably wants to eat me and I will be thinking about being eaten," one netizen wrote.
"What is the difference between this and an animal show?" another wrote.
Some said the tiger might be depressed as it is being kept in such a small space.
A working staff from the Chongchuan bureau of culture and tourism in Nantong said it's an experienced program developed by the hotel
and the tiger was fed by the zoo based on related government regulations.
