BOOK AND BED TOKYO: Themed Hotel Has 1,700 Books And Sleeping Shelves Next To Them


Some people love books, while other get put to sleep by them. Book and Bed Tokyo, a bookstore-themed hotel located on the seventh floor of a high-rise in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro neighborhood. Designed by Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida of Suppose Design Office, it promises to be the best place to curl up with a good book and fall asleep. 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 per evening can be 3,800 to 6,000 yen (US$32 to $50), depending on the size of accommodations. On opening day, there will be 1,700 English and Japanese language books available, but the hotel plans to eventually expand its library to 3,000. 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). 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. Our concept is thus a readers haven – an accommodation bookshop. (Books aren’t sold, though. It’s just an expression.) Dozing off obliviously during your treasured pasttime is the finest “moment of sleep”, don’t you agree? With books as our central theme, we decided to create a hostel offering the greatest moment of sleep”.For more information or reservation just visit the link below.
