Ever dreamed of staying in a library after hours? To curl up between two books and dive into Morpheus’s arms? To read while being in the most absolute comfort?
Here is the Book and Bed Hotel, a Japanese hotel that offers to sleep in a room that looks like a library in every respect, with walls lined with books at the disposal of travelers.
Concretely, the establishment looks like a large room bounded by books. Since there will be no rooms per se, tourists sleep in cabins and bunks nestled between books to rest. Intimacy is therefore not the key word of this Japanese hotel concept. By cons, curtains are still installed here and there to offer a little respite to tired travelers or just readers who want a little more comfort.

It is commonly said that the book is our best friend, If you’re a book lover or just want a quiet, homey single-bunk hostel experience on the cheap, you should definitely check it out next time you’re in Japan.

This hotel may not have the luxurious amenities of a five star hotel, but the Book and simplicity make it clear that the experience is more about dozing off with a good book than sleeping on a plush mattress.
