It’s inspired by none other than Doctor Who’s TARDIS. When the door is shut, it looks like a typucal replica of the Doctor’s time machine. But the door opens to reveal a Victorian-style bathroom, complete with checkered floor, a toilet, a sink, and a hand dryer.
The bathroom, aka Doctor Loo, is outfitted with motion detection sensors which turn the lights on or off as patrons enter and exit. The Loo’s creator and restaurant owner Justin Hoggars has also installed a doorbell of sorts that emits the TARDIS’s familiar wheezing sound.
It might be a loo with a view, but a newly opened hotel in Berlin is giving passers-by a bit of an eyeful.
For some unknown reason, the architect who designed the restaurant area in the 25hours Hotel Bikini Berlin thought the toilets should be placed next to the floor-to-ceiling windows, despite the building being only ten storeys tall.
The hotel, which offers spectacular views of the Berlin Zoo, unfortunately also now offers eagle-eyed pedestrians another sight if they look up.
Several passers-by on the street below have been taking snaps of the hapless toilet users, which has prompted the hotel to put up notices which read: ‘Please be careful, not only the monkeys are watching.’
