A very short walk after getting off the shinkansen. A fairly large hotel with spacious, comfortable rooms. Excellent work area for those using computers. Free WIFI in the rooms. A very convenient location with easy access to the main sights of town, shopping and restaurants. Being at the train station and with a JR railpass I was able to zip... More

Stayed for one night and would highly recommend this hotel. It is extremely convenient for access to the Shinkansen and is centered in Yamagata city. The staff were pleasant and professional and the room was spacious for a single. The restaurant served a great dinner and the bar had a happy hour with reduced prices. Will definitely stay here again... More

One of the nicest hotels we stayed in during a trip to northern Tohoku and Hokkaido. After a long flight from Singapore and shinkansen from Tokyo we were pleased with the enormous room and mountain view on an upper floor. Reasonably priced. Friendly reception albeit limited language skills. Good internet. Easy to do day trips around region since it's attached... More

This is a modern hotel geared to the business person in an ideal location. One entrance is at the ground level, a second on the floor above just a minute's walk past the entry to the platforms of the Yamagata Station. We had free wifi, a very clean modern room with excellent bath and toilet, comfortable bed, and about all... More

We selected the hotel because of its location, it's attached to the Yamagata train station and the rental car office was across from the hotel. Good size room, comfy beds and pillows, good size bathroom, great shower and ample amenities like toothbrushes, toothpaste, razor, hairbrush, etc. Friendly staff at check-in desk, few English speaking staff, but all trying their best...

Stayed here for 3 nights on business. Best location because it is connected to the JR station. Supermarkets nearby and friendly staff. Everything you may want is in the room. Good view from the hotel seeing the mount Zao. Also, if the heat is too hot, you may even open the small window for some fresh air.

Yamagata City is 3 hrs from Tokyo on fast train. The Metropolitan Hotel is in a perfect location both for the centre of Yamagata City and for the conference centre which is a 5 minute walk. The hotel is physically attached to the train station but it does not feel like a 'station hotel'. It is light and airy and... More

Stayed two nights for the trip to Yonezawa and Ginzan Onsen. Ideal stop over that fits a three days visit to the Yamagata region.

Saw an ad for this place inside the train station, and is really is a solid business hotel. Good staff, good location, has its own breakfast service, and a great price for a pretty decent room. Definitely recommended.

“English speaking travelers should learn just a few Japanese words -- please, thank you. BAnk machines with Plus Card access are not as prevalent in Japan as they are in NA and Europe. The Post Office both in Yamagata City and Tokyo has machines with Plus access.”
