Any bookworm worth their salt will be familiar with the nightly dilemma of needing to go to sleep, but also really needing to read just one more page/chapter/the rest of a good book.

If this sounds like you, then get ready to absolve your guilt around your reading addiction and chuck out the idea of sleep altogether with a stay at the world’s first ever library hotel.

Situated in Tokyo, the Book And Bed hotel is a veritable book-lovers dream, with wooden shelves crammed full of books interspersed with cosy bed nooks and private lamps to let you keep reading long into the night.
