The wine bar in this Swiss hotel has 33,000 books on its shelves. Can we be teleported there immediately?

We're sure there are lots of reasons to recommend the B2 Boutique Hotel, set on the site of a former brewery in downtown Zurich.

Its tasteful architecture, for example. The spa with its thermal baths, perhaps - or its 51-odd rooms, inspired by the building's industrial history.

But there's really only one reason we want to visit.

The Wine Library.

That's right - a breathtaking space in which two of our favourite things go hand and hand amidst towering bookshelves.

As well as the 33,000 books, the library boasts a yummy-looking food menu (an antipasti plate starts from about €18, with glasses of wine from around €6.50) and chandeliers made from original Hurlimann beer bottles.

It's even got coffee tables made out of stacked books.

Sip, browse, repeat.
