Second Muji hotel in China opens overlooking Tiananmen Square
Japan’s Muji hotel & store has just opened in Beijing in a key location overlooking Tiananmen Square.
The hotel’s first basement-level retail store sells travel essentials and everyday items, many of which feature in the guest room amenities.
Designed as an antidote to the brute gorgeousness of boutique and luxury properties and the cheapness of budget accommodation, the hotel’s understated zen-like interior grounded in undisturbed sleep is intended to stand in keeping with the world heritage sites in the hotel’s immediate surrounding district.
The property also features a Muji Café&Meal venue serving simple, health-conscious food offerings, and a diner featuring classic East Asian cuisine.
Another Muji hotel opened in Shenzhen last January.
