Modern Muji on the Med

Sarah Lonsdale August 15, 2013

We love this concept, hotel apartments outfitted with stylish, utilitarian furniture and accessories from Muji. Whotells in Barcelona offers four distinct lodging options in different neighborhoods of the city, all furnished with Muji products (in four palettes: blue, green, orange and gray); think simple, functional Japanese design. The apartments are available on both a long and short-term basis and can accommodate anywhere from three to nine people depening on the unit. For detials, go to Whotells.
