Book and Bed TokyoA hotel that is located in Japan is throwing caution to the trend of digitalized books by appealing to its guests who are turned on by the feel of traditional paper books.


Book and Bed Tokyo is the name of that unique hotel.


The hotel represents a variation of the renowned capsule hotels of Japan that offer guests a closet-sized bunk that is embedded in beautiful rows of bookshelves. The ceiling, walls and a majority of the decoration of the hotel are packed with 3,200 books, all of which are in different languages.


Here, the hotel guests would be capable of sleeping in a closet-sized bunk that is embedded with continuous rows of bookshelves.


There is a common room that acts as a lounge for day tourists who might also choose to visit the hotel to explore the experience of reading books together.


The hotel had opened about 18 months ago. It is equipped with 60 cube rooms, along with a reading lamp and a mattress. Depending on the room, the overnight rates range from $46 to $58. The daytime visitors might choose to lounge in cushioned corners of the hotel for 500 yen per hour.


Kei Asai, the chief executive of Book and Bed said that he had a goal of offering his guests something that transcends the elements of a traditional capsule hotel.


He added that he had come up with this innovative hotel concept. Here, the guests can simply lie down, fall asleep while indulging in simple pleasures like reading book in a comfortable and cozy corner.
