A bookstore has never been as one-stop as this: Tsutaya Book Apartment & Book Lounge has got to be one of the most unique places to stay (and do some reading) in Tokyo. Occupying three floors in the Shinjuku Minim building, it houses a sake bar in the basement, a co-working space on the fourth floor, and private sleeping booths complete with shower facilities on the fifth and sixth (women only) floor. There's even complimentary coffee and tea facilities. This being in Shinjuku, it's also perfect as a crash pad for folks who have missed their last train home after a night of bar-hopping. And yes, there's free wi-fi.
Niche-interest capsule hotels and themed accommodation are becoming more common in Tokyo in recent years, and you'll find everything from a hotel staffed by robots to a hostel repurposed from train compartments. More interestingly, there's a growing selection of accommodation catering to bibliophiles. So if you often find yourself staying up until the wee hours of the morning engrossed in a good read, you'd love these unique bookstore-themed accommodations.
Resembling a library or bookstore, these book-hotels have stocked their shelves with all sorts of reading materials from manga and glossy magazines to artistic coffee-table tomes. Most of which even have a small collection of English-language titles. Don't need an overnight stay? That's okay – many of these hotels also double as hangout spots for guests who's just looking for a few hours of peace and quiet to do some reading.
