We stayed for two nights. The highlights were location, staff professionalism, cost, and wifi access. Downsides were room size, age of rooms, and fact that room temperature cannot be regulated. The last issues is one prevalent throughout most large hotels in Japan. Sendai itself was great!

As with most Japanese hotels, the rooms are very cramped, ditto for the bathroom. I wondered how a large size European would fare in the bathtub, which was really quite cramped. Limited television channels, only one English channel. The air conditioner was very stuffy, only heated air. Not everyone likes to sleep in a heated room even if it was... More

This is an excellent Hotel with english speaking staff. Rooms have big windows to have a view of the city very rare in Japan. Walking distance from Sendai Station and Bus stand. Nearby grocery stores and Malls are there for daily need. Room service is excellent. Front desk is very helpful and goes out of the way to help. I... More

I visited sendai in May 2013. The hotel was nice and clean. It's easy to access from Sendai JR. The hotel said about 5 min walk but I spent 10-12 min :P Anyway, the room was clean and provided facilities e.g., hair dryer, towels, shampoo, soap etc. Staffs were friendly and spoke English well.

This luxury hotel is situated downtown within walking distance from the train station and central shopping district. I had a double room which was relatively spacious and included free internet although I was told that rooms on the seventh floor did not have wireless. Wireless speed was slower than desirable, but acceptable for email (and writing reviews for Tripadvisor!). Overall,... More

This hotel features "western style" rooms, but Japanese style food and hospitality. Excellent Japanese breakfasts were included in room price; the room itself had twin beds and a large, well appointed bathroom. Some desk staff spoke enough English to be very helpful in finding us bookstores, restaurants and attractions. One caution: don't have a nightcap in the lobby bar unless... More

The hotel is very modern looking. The rooms are very small but clean. The hotel is located about 5-7 minutes walk from JR Sendai Station. There is a convenience store located just outside the exit closest to the station. Some of the staff at the front desk spoke limited English. The front-desk staff seemed unorganized as one staff told us... More

This hotel is within walking distance of the JR station. It's nice and modern but the rooms are miniscule. Unless you have a suite or single, a double is out of the question as the bed is smack against one wall and the foot can accomodate one chair. They did not even have drawer space. For the price you can... More
