13. Book and Bed, Hotel, Tokyo
Any avid reader will agree that there’s something inherently comforting about curling up surrounded by piles of dog-eared paperbacks and study hardbacks filled with pages ready to transport you to a whole new world. The team at Book and Bed know this love of comforting books all too well, so they decided to make an entire hostel dedicated to it. Book and Bed is a library-bookshop-hotel hybrid where guests are invited to crawl between their endless shelves of much-loved novels and drift off into a literary slumber. Positioned just a four-minute walk from Ikebukuro station, it provides easy access to the rest of Tokyo – if you manage to drag yourself out of bed, that is.
