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.

Why not spend the night in your own personal book nook?

Opened last year, the Book and Bed offers bibliophiles the chance to stay in their very own book nooks, with 30 sleeping compartments (complete with a curtain for privacy) hidden amongst the library shelves.



For less than £30, you can hunker down with your pick of novels, and enjoy free wifi and a locker service for storing all your bags.

Cosy up with a good book

If small spaces aren’t your thing, you can even curl up on one of the library's plush sofas.

The ultimate location for book lovers?

The concept of the hotel has been so popular in Tokyo that a second location is now planned to open next month in Kyoto.

We’ll see you there, book lovers.
