Book and Bed, Tokyo, Japan
This concept hotel is a bibliophile’s dream. The Book and Bed Tokyo is designed to resemble a used bookstore until a bookshelf is opened to reveal a comfy nook big enough for just one person, with a bed, reading light, and electrical outlet. This simple hotel is definitely not for the claustrophobic. This space has only 30 stacked cubicles, and shared bathrooms. The bookshelves are lined with over 3,000 titles in both English and Japanese. Couches stationed around the bookshelves provide a communal area for reading and socializing.
Treehotel, Harads, Sweden
Your inner child will feel right at home at this hotel. Treehotel architects have given the childhood staple a futuristic makeover. Opened in 2010, and located in the middle of the forest, each of the seven treehouse suites has its own look, whether it be a flying saucer, a bird’s nest or nothing at all. The “7th Room” is covered by a life-size photograph of the treetops so as to be hidden in plain sight. Each treehouse is warmed up by underfloor heating and build from sustainable materials. The property also sports a 1950’s themed restaurant and bar, sauna and relaxation area.
With accommodations like these, you may just find it difficult to leave your room.
