Sleep among books

The bibliophiles’ paradise exists, and it is in Tokyo. The Book and Bed hotel is both a bedroom and library. Its shelves are stacked with more than 3,000 works, and you can sleep on them. There are 30 beds, with shared bathrooms, and you can choose between two types of accommodation: Bookshelf, where you sleep on a shelf, in a cubicle, from 120 to 200cm; or Bunk Beds. Here, they make no promises of fluffy pillows, comfortable mattresses or feather duvets, but a moment of happiness is assured: falling asleep with a book in your hands. And for those who don’t like to read, it is simply because, as J. K. Rowling would say, “you haven’t found the right book”. This is your opportunity.
