It is a well-known fact that book lovers will not give up on any chance of being surrounded by vast libraries and rows over rows of books. All such people love having their own collections, but at the same time, adore even more being able to go to libraries or bookstores were they are surrounded by books on all sides. A hotel from Tokyo used this particular love as inspiration and created a bookstore style hotel. Book and Bed Tokyo will open its doors on November 5th and book lovers will definitely not want to miss it.
“Book And Bed is ‘an accommodation bookshop.’ The perfect setting for a good nights sleep is something you will not find here.There are no comfortable mattresses, fluffy pillows nor lightweight and warm down duvets. What we do offer is an experience while reading a book (or comic book),” wrote the owners of the bookstore themed hotel on their website. “An experience shared by everyone at least once : the blissful ‘instant of falling asleep’. It is already 2 am but you think just a little more… with heavy drooping eye lids you continue reading only to realize you have fallen asleep.”
The Bed and Book hotel can be found at the seventh floor in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro neighborhood. It was designed by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida of Suppose Design Office, and promises to be the best place to cuddle to sleep with a book. The hotel offers more than 1.700 books in both English and Japanese. Each traveler can opt for a Compact or Standard compartment among the books. The ‘Compact’ compartment measures 205 x 85 centimeters (80.7 x 33.5 inches), and the ‘Standard’ is 205 x 129 centimeters (80.7 x 50.8 inches). The price for the first one is $32, while the second goes to $50. The owners of the Bed and Book hope to increase the number of books up to 3.000.
