Guests at a popular hotel in Berlin, Germany, are baffled after realizing that the public has a full view of the toilets.

For some reason, the architect who designed the Monkey Bar restaurant at the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin, thought that the bathrooms should be placed next to the floor to roof windows, despite the fact that the building is only about 100 feet high.

The hotel, which offers magnificent views of the Berlin Zoo, also provides pedestrians with views of gusts doing their business in the toilets.

Several passersby on the street below took snapshots of guests using the toilets, which has led the hotel to post signs saying: “Please be careful. Not only the monkeys are watching.”

However, the sign does not convey the message clearly, and guests are still using the toilets oblivious to the public below.

So if you are staying at the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin, and feel a sense of urgency, maybe just wait until you are back in your room where the toilets are not situated at windows.
