MUJI HOTEL FEATURES

The hotels have been designed to reflect an anti-gorgeous, anti-cheap concept. The goal is to offer great sleep at the right price, provide a space supporting both body and mind while away from home, and connect travellers to local people and places. Traveling has become a natural part of present-day living, a once-unusual activity now seen as normal. Travel preferences are shifting away from packaged consumer products to a build-your-own experience. MUJI HOTEL provides an answer to this shift in demand. Cooperating with MUJI stores, MUJI HOTEL seeks to provide a physical experience of the MUJI philosophy through the sensation of towels, the placement of outlets and light switches, restaurants and menus, space, and more.

MUJI HOTEL SHENZHEN

Shenzhen is located in the Guangdong Province. The hotel is located close to the heart of the city in the UpperHills multi-use complex now under construction. The hotel reception desk will be located on the second floor, with floors four through six holding a total of 79 rooms. The overall concept and room design is handled by Ryohin Keikaku, with management and operation provided by SHENZHEN SHUM YIP HOTELS MANGENENT CO., LTD. (China/Shenzhen, General Manager: Steven Wu) of the UpperHills developer group.

The second floor of the same building will also host a MUJI Diner. Guests of the hotel will have access from breakfast through dinner, with a bar available during certain hours. A brand new MUJI store on the second and third floors will begin operation on the same day of the hotel opening, aiming to help customers experience the world view of MUJI.

MUJI HOTEL BEIJING

MUJI HOTEL BEIJING will be located in a four-story building in a corner of the historic old Beijing district, presently undergoing redevelopment. The ground floor will feature a reception desk, café, and book shop, with guest rooms located on the second and third floors. The fourth floor will house a restaurant. While Ryohin Keikaku provides the overarching concepts, UDS Ltd. (Tokyo; Keibun Nakagawa, President & Representative Director) as well as its Chinese subsidiary UDS CO., LTD (Beijing; Fumio Kajiwara, Chairman) are overseeing planning and interior design. UDS Hotel Management (Beijing) Co., Ltd will be responsible for hotel operations. Much like the Shenzhen location, a MUJI store will be located within the same building. The ground floor will feature an open space for guests to mingle with the local citizens and participate in meaningful dialogue.
