The Muji Hotel Ginza Brings Anti-Cheap Design to Tokyo

The sedate modern simplicity of Japanese homewares and furnishing giant Muji has arrived home to the city of Tokyo in the form of Muji Hotel Ginza. Joining two other existing hotels in China’s Shenzen and Beijing, this latest outpost representing the tastefully minimal yet organic blurs the lines between retail and hospitality.

Aiming to forgo “exorbitantly priced and superfluent services”, each of the simply furnished 79 rooms within this latest Muji hotel located above the MUJI global flagship store in the bustling Ginza district quietly showcases a vast swath of the retailer’s catalog of homewares and furnishings. From mattress to bath towels to the nail clippers any guests can request during their stay, the hotel operates not only as a place to stay, but arguably the ultimate try-before-you-buy showroom.

The hotel offers 8 single occupancy TYPE A rooms that are small but unsurprisingly intelligently organized.

The hotel offers nine configurations/styles of room – TYPE A thru TYPE I – ranging in sizes from compact single person 14-15 square meter rooms up to more spacious 52 square meter accommodations more than suitable for couples.

The Muji Hotel Ginza in Tokyo officially opened its doors to guests beginning April 4th, with reservations undoubtedly a hot ticket for guests looking to stay in one of the most desirable districts of Tokyo at reasonable rates (about $135 per night).
