10. Book and Bed Hotel, Tokyo
There are no comfortable mattresses, fluffy pillows nor lightweight and warm down duvets. What we do offer is an experience while reading a book (or comic book). An experience shared by everyone at least once: the blissful “instant of falling asleep.” Our concept is thus a readers’ haven—an accommodation bookshop. With books as our central theme, we decided to create a hostel offering the greatest “moment of sleep.”
The space is a sort of bunkhouse, with sleeping nooks built into bookcases. Under forty U.S. dollars a night.
11. Chocolate Bathrooms
‘There are millions of Google searches for sweet related terms each month, a number of these come to our web site. Why? Because people are regularly searching for “bathroom sweets”. Were people looking to find loo-specific treats, or was this just a simple case of bad spelling?
The answer is pretty obvious. Clearly people wanted bathroom suites, and they just got it a bit wrong. But that got us thinking: just how do bad spelling, a love of confectionery and bathrooms come together like that?”
This site holds the answer. (Thanks for the tip Brian!)
