Patrons who are staying at the 25 Hours Hotel Bikini Berlin, in Germany may find that taking a bathroom break might not be a private matter anymore.
Architects at the Monkey Bar, inside the hotel, installed the toilets right next to floor-to-ceiling windows, so anyone passing by can see patrons in all their glory. Awkward much? The hotel is only 10 stories high, which isn’t high enough to hide guests from public display while using the toilet.
The contemporary hotel, which claims to have some of the best city views in Berlin, is located near the Berlin Zoo and is designed with “the contrasts of nature and culture,” according to their website.
The hotel does not seem to mind that pictures of patrons using the toilet are appearing all over the internet. The hotel management simply posted signs to warn patrons: “Please be careful, not only the monkeys are watching,” reports the Daily Mail.
Personally, I like my privacy, especially when using the throne. Therefore I don’t think I’ll ever stay here!
