Just opened: MUJI HOTEL SHENZHEN, providing a space supporting both body and soul while away from home, and connect travellers to local communities
MUJI HOTEL in Shenzhen is developed around a MUJI concept: walk as much as you can, wherever you can; eat well; sleep well; stay fit. Surrounded by the sea on west and east, Shenzhen is showing an outstanding growth. Within just 30 years, it has burgeoned from a fishing village of 30,000 people to a megacity of 14 million. In this metropolis, geometrical scenery including sprawling skyscrapers and highways juxtaposed with the chaotic hustle and bustle of everyday life in an old port city. Shenzhen is a city of perpetual metamorphosis bringing forth innovation and dealing. It is our wish that MUJI HOTEL SHENZHEN will be a most comfortable base from which to both concentrate on business and heighten one’s enthusiasm for touring this great city.
Shenzhen is located in Guangdong Province. The hotel is located close to the heart of the city in the new UpperHills multi-use complex. The reception desk is located on the second floor, with floors four through six holding a total of 79 rooms. Pillars and walls of traditional Chinese houses are repurposed in interior walls and courtyards. A brand new MUJI store on the second and third floors will open simultaneously with the hotel, to help customers experience the world view of MUJI.
The hotel has 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 soul while away from home, and connect travellers to local communities. Travel has become part of our daily lives. It has evolved from the extraordinary to the ordinary, from something in which we participate to something we create. 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 texture of the towels, the placement of outlets and light switches, menu and venue of the restaurant, and more.
At MUJI Diner, hotel guests can enjoy meals featuring freshly prepared nutritious and delicious local foods inspired by home cooking from around the world. The diner is open from morning breakfast to late night bar hours. Some of the dinnerware is available at the MUJI store.
MUJI BOOKS offers a collection of words of wisdom of all ages and cultures: a source of inspiration and motivation for any reader. Our library in the common area of MUJI HOTEL SHENZHEN accommodates approximately 650 volumes.
