5. BnA Koenji, Hotel, Tokyo
The B and A in BnA Hotel’s name stands for Bed and Art, the two foundations on which this hotel was founded. Size-wise, the hotel is humble – it has just two rooms – but the concept is big. The hotel enlisted the help of the city’s most exciting contemporary artists and commissioned them to paint the bedrooms however they saw fit. Founded as a way to help fund the Tokyo art scene, every time a room is booked, the artists responsible for the design receive a percentage of the booking cost, thus providing funding for their creative pursuits. The BnA group also have another hotel in Akihabara, which is a worthy choice for those who want to be right in the heart of the gamer geek action.
