I don't mind it, and perhaps I even like it though I wonder what it might be like after a year or so. I grew up within earshot of the bell on a country church that tolled the hours, though it was a couple of miles away and pretty faint (the church is still there), I wonder about the bells?). I suppose I thought that was okay, though I suppose that it was mostly just part of the background noise.
But I have to confess, in Muslim country, when I get waked by the muezzin, I get annoyed: why can't they just shut up and let me sleep? Is this pure cultural chauvinism? Or well-grounded musical taste?
