An unusual hotel in Tokyo for people who like to read in bed

Many people like books, but there are some who even fall asleep holding a book. For such people Japanese designers created a unique “Book and Bed” hotel that opened its doors to guests on the 5th of November, 2015.

At first sight the hotel, which is more like a hostel, resembles a book shop with numerous wooden shelves filled with literary classics and modern best-sellers.

Inside the bookcases there are special boxes where one can lie and read or sleep.

The hotel is located on the 7th floor of a skyscraper in Ikebukuro, a commercial and entertainment district in the Tokyo suburb of Toshima.

The prices vary from 3800 to 6000 yens (32-50 dollars) per night. At present there are about 1700 books in Japanese and English.

And what about you? Would you like to spend a night in such a hotel? Share your opinion below!
