The 25h (Twenty Five Hours) Hotel Bikini recently opened in Berlin. The ten-story building is one of many from the 25Hours group that designer Werner Aisslinger describes as "designed-oriented boutique hotels." At the top floor, one can dine in a 360-degree, panoramic-view restaurant appropriately named The Monkey Bar, and take in the scenery of the Berlin Zoo and surrounding property. Like all sit-down restaurants, this one provides restroom facilities for its patrons. But I wouldn’t recommend using them, especially if you expect any privacy, for the restrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, and pedestrians have started taking pictures of the diners using them.

And it’s not like the toilets are farther back in the rooms, either. As you can see in the photo below (courtesy of The NY Daily News), the toilets are situated right against the windows.

When alerted to the issue, management took action, but it was not exactly what you would expect. They did not install curtains. They did not set up a waist-high modesty screen. Hell, they did not even send one of the janitors to the local Real to pick up a few roles of that frosty window cling stuff Gramma used to slap on her bathroom windows, because you know, the neighbors are peeping toms and perverts are everywhere. Instead, they ordered a few signs to be put up to alert patrons of the issue: "Please be careful, not only the monkeys are watching. The hotel's half-assed decision is rather surprising, especially considering that Aisslinger was named 2014 Designer of the Year by Germany's premier architecture magazine A&W. It is hard to believe that someone with such a strong presence in the architecture world would want to be associated with this type of design flaw.

Personally, I would rather look up and see crappy frosty window cling material than someone taking a crap.

Watching attractive women lowering their trousers has always been a pleasure for me. Watching them take a dump is something I have never done and something that I would think would have little appeal.

This story makes me think of the first full time job I had as a teenager. I worked in the largest department store in downtown Nashville, Tn, which had a lunch counter called, "The Monkey Bar." Nothing adds to the flavor of a hamburger like eating it in a booth next to a screeching and smelly troupe of caged spider monkeys. They did on occasion provide high entertainment for we stock boys though.

If a woman was having her period the super sensitive Simian olfactory systems detected it and the cage immediately became an orgy of monkeys screeching in delight as they whacked away at their organs of copulation. The women would usually blush and leave. Great entertainment at lunch time.

If I had two faces do you think I'd be wearing this one?

Holy crap! You've been keeping this gem to yourself all these years? I can only imagine what else lurks up in that brain of yours.

Daphne, If my brain were open to the public and my lurid experiences were made available to all, many would run away screaming and I would probably be placed in either a jail or a mental institution for the rest of my life.

If I had two faces do you think I'd be wearing this one?

Sure, the "in your face" sight of someone taking a dump wouldn't be what even a seasoned Poopreporter would like around lunch time, but aren't these changing times? The entire human experience had been challenged several times over in the past few years. So this is barely surprising. Hope to see more stories like these in the near future. It's high time that humanity embraces the ugliness of reality...

Le Poo, are you in any way related to either; Wang Chong, Li Si, Cheng Yi, or Wang Fuzhi? I admire all you Chinese philosopher guys.

Hi Chief!

I'm Indian, not Chinese.

But a really big fan of Poopreport.
We really need to dig a lot deeper into the proverbial poophole; and uncover the secrets of the universe!

PS. I'd would like to get to know you better.
