After launching locations in Tokyo’s Akihabara and Koenji neighborhoods, BnA (Bed and Art) Hotels has now opened its doors to the BnA Alter Museum in Kyoto that features 31 permanent art exhibitions that guests can sleep in. The ambitious undertaking saw 15 Japanese artists having collaborated with 9 art directors to transform the new establishment’s hotel rooms, a 10 story vertical staircase gallery called SCG, the museum shop, cafe, lounge, and bar.

Highlights include digital works by Daito Manabe, a sound and light installation by EYE, and 360-degree murals by longtime BnA collaborator Mon Koutaro Ooyama. Not to mention the SCG’s opening exhibition entitled “TO SELF BUILD” features works by Japanese artists Akiyama Buku, Muku Kobayashi, Taro Komiya, and Yumi Nakata.

Guests who book rooms at the BnA Alter Museum are patrons of art. “A percentage of each room booking is direct income for artists who has created permanent exhibitions,” said BnA Hotels in a statement.
