Toilets without proper door, frosted glass doors instead of neat wooden models; Hotels obviously want our relationships - and put our sphincter to the test …
The long-awaited spa weekend with your loved one is approaching, finally away from everyday life and office stress … you know that. Everything could be so easy for four or five days, if it weren't for the rather idiosyncratic trend that has been going on in hotels around the world spreads a few years ago: There are no longer proper bathroom doors and walls. Thanks for nothing!
In other words: The greatest luxury in a holiday hotel is no longer being served champagne at breakfast according to the free-flow principle and not removing the butter-croissant flanks from the 2x2-meter bed yourself; no - lately one has only been shouting for joy when there is a toilet in the hotel room that can really and properly be locked.
Nice anyway. In terms of privacy, but rather difficult
At the same time, semi-transparent frosted glass and thin sliding doors are extremely hostile to privacy. When traveling, you no longer just share the bed, but everything else too … and sorry, love can't be that big. Prudish? Maybe. But is it really too much to ask not to want to be observed during bowel movements … and not to HAVE to watch (and listen) to anyone else doing big business?
We say NO, plead for toilets separated from the bed and lockable bathrooms, which are ideally also soundproof. Until then, we will no longer choose our accommodation based on spa size, gym equipment or brunch buffet, but will first ask whether we can really go to the bathroom in peace in the hotel.
And dear hotel owners of the world, while we're at it … there are a few more things that we just can't understand:
- Windows that cannot be opened
- Air conditioners precisely aimed at the headboard of the bed
- Only one head cushion per person - we are princesses on the pea!
- XXL double blankets - we want our own, sorry
- Bad light in the bathroom - unfortunately, the funky ceiling lighting does not help us with contouring!
- Walk-in showers - hello, flood!
- Sockets in strange places - we need the parts NEXT TO THE BED !!!
- Curtains that are only decorative and do not darken
So please do us a favor and consider these things before or at least WHILE you are planning a new hotel. It would help us all - especially our relationships!;-)
