In the heart of Sendai, a 12-minute arcade walk from the JR Sendai station and 2 minutes from Kotodai Koen on the subway, this may be the best deal in the whole city. After 5 nights over two trips to Sendai, and having lived in the city for a decade years ago, I give this a great rating for service,... More

I stayed here overnight and was very impressed. The room was clean and spacious. They provided pyjamas to use which were really comfortable. The bathroom was a decent size which is unusual in Japanese hotels. The breakfast buffet had a fairly decent selection of food and was an all you can eat buffet style for ¥1000. Overall, I was very... More

I was staying here for a conference and found the place friendly and the lobby/restaurant a great place to sit and have a drink or unwind after the day's work. It's close to good shopping and on the main street so lots to see and do nearby. The breakfast was fantastic. Great selection, excellent quality and good balance of authentic... More

We visited Sendai during Golden week in May 2012 and stayed at the Library hotel. The room was cleaned each day and there were fresh sheets and towels. There is a small kettle and cups for making a brew of your choice by buying supplies from the local Lawsons "Combini" situated close to the hotel. We were on the 7th... More

Nice hotel, lovely rooms and bed. Great breakfast although this is Y1000 extra. Very centrally located, near the market and railway station. A bit expensive compared with some other hotels, though this is reflected in the generally good quality.

A very nice hotel - room was quite modern and very clean, with all the necessities, except an ironing board - in fact, no ironing facilities to be found at this hotel even in the laundry room. Conveniently located and central. The breakfast was pretty good, with a selection to suit both western and Japanese tastes.
