Calling all bookworms – there’s a literary themed hotel that needs to go on your bucket lists right now.

The Literary Man Hotel has everything you could possibly want for a dreamy bookish getaway. We’re talking over 50,000 books on offer, its very own library, cosy reading nooks everywhere and even a dedicated gin bar with themed cocktails.

You’ve got my attention.


Maybe we’re just all very tired, but this is honestly outrageously fun with song lyrics. (Some of our favorites include “sweet dreams are made of this, who is your favorite cat in your life,” “hot town, summer in the city, the only thing that would make my day is going to bed,” and “this is ground control to Major Tom, is there anything you want us to do or whatever?”) In fact, the only thing that could make it more fun is giving it a literary twist.
