Following the launch of its Shenzhen and Beijing branches in 2018, Muji hotel has opened its third location in the brand’s hometown japan this April 2019. Located in the Ginza area in Tokyo, the lifestyle brand’s latest property has begun taking reservations on their website https://hotel.muji.com/en/
Throughout their stay, guests can enjoy Muji products and services at reasonable prices.
Why Muji Hotel?
Tourists in Japan who want to shell money on experiences than stay, but don’t want to end up in a run-down motel sleeping on a worn out mattress that leaves feeling more tired and exhausted when you wake up, Muji Hotel Gizza is the solution for your pocket.
The unique Muji experience
The newest venture from interior and lifestyle brand Mujirushi Ryohin, internationally known as Muji, is characterised by their “anti-luxurious” but “anti-cheap” concept. They provide a simple, soothing space for guests to relax in at a fair price. These hotels make full use of Muji products to give visitors the complete Muji experience.
The Hotel Room
Simple, stylish and comfortable, the rooms make abundant use of wood, stone, tatami reed flooring and other organic materials. The best part of being a guest at Muji hotel is that if you liked the understated aesthetic and would want to buy furniture, towels and many other items in the guestroom, simply head to Muji store on the first five floors of the building which the hotel occupies.
Muji Hotel Ginza occupies the sixth to tenth floors of the new Muji Global Flagship Store, which will also include a Muji diner and Atelier Muji Ginza, a “multi-purpose facility of design and culture” with two galleries, a salon, a library, and a lounge.
Also, on the first floor, there is a special food area selling fresh fruits and vegetables from farms near Tokyo, as well as related products such as juices and desserts.
The noteworthy thing about the Muji hotel is that the prices are fixed. There are no rate increase for weekends or peak travel seasons. The price that you pay is entirely dependent on which of the nine room configurations you choose.
The hotel kick starts from April 4, 2019. Having made all under statement about the “cost” of stay here at Muji, I must tell you that a night in this hotel costs you 14,900 yen which translates to US $134 onwards, depending on the room’s configuration.
I resonate with your thoughts. This isn’t particularly “inexpensive”! Remember the hotel’s slogan – “anti-cheap”?
But this isn’t unreasonable though, considering the hotel’s location in the heart of Ginza. It is one of Tokyo’s most fashionable neighbourhood and an enviable place to make feel like your home in Japan during your stay.
I would say spend a night at Muji Hotel Ginza to experience the Muji brand like never before!
