This summer we traipsed through Sri Lanka, Bombay, Mangalore and a little bit of Goa. The hotels we stayed at had bookshelves full of dusty paperbacks, left behind by other travellers. A few in English but mostly in German, Spanish, some French. In Kandy, the B&B had as many cats as books, walls full of graffiti from visitors, and a pile of old architectural magazines going back all the way to the 90s.
None of the 'libraries' looked like this. We've clearly been staying at the wrong places.
Here are some more beautiful libraries in hotels. Maybe it's a good thing we were not in a place like the one above (Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad). I'd probably never leave the room.
Ambassade Hotel, Amsterdam
Hotel Milano Scala, Milan
Viceroy Santa Monica, California
