“Excellent Choice for Staying In Sendai & Exploring Tohoku”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

We stayed in several hotels in Japan on this trip, and the Hotel Metropolitan Sendai was by far the nicest. Fantastic location, adjacent to Sendai station and very close to the main shopping/dining areas. My wife and I had a double room - it was large by Japanese standards, and there was plenty of room for our stuff. The 160cm bed (basically a queen-size) was extremely comfortable. There was one room for the toilet, and one room for the sink with another door leading to the bath/shower (and as with most Japanese hotels, the amenities provided were top-notch). The temperature in the room was easily controlled via thermostat, and the window did open a small bit if needed. The rooms have complimentary wired internet, but if you want wireless you'll have to go to the (very spacious) lobby. There is also a business center in the lobby with computers, but ask a staff member to show you where it is. The staff spoke passable English and were very accommodating. We did not eat at the hotel restaurant – although it looked great, the prices seemed very high and there are plenty of restaurants nearby serving all kinds of wonderful food at more reasonable prices. This hotel is a great choice for exploring Sendai, and its proximity to the station makes it a great base for exploring other parts of Tohoku. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the region.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side of the hotel provide a great view of downtown Sendai & the surrounding mo...

Location is fantastic! Right next door to the main shopping centres and train station (less than 2 minutes walk). The shops stay open until 9pm every night so easy to get your shopping in! Also close to lots of bars and restaurants, which was great for our quick one night stay. Sendai itself is a lovely clean city, bustling but not too busy, and all you might need. The hotel staff were brilliant - friendly and helpful. Would recommend and would stay again.

In the midst of the restaraunts (2 floors down in the mall), great shopping centre attached to the hotel, the main Sendai train station is also attached making it so easy to gey around. The location can not be beat.

The rooms have a semi traditional Japanese bath shower which is great at the end of the day.

Wifi in the lobby and wired internet in the rooms is high speed.

I was traveling with a group on a goodwill mission to Sendai, Ishinomaki, Kesennuma and Iwaki City. Hotel Metropolitan was our last stop, and we spent two nights there. The location was convenient to Sendai Station and many shops and department stores. S-Pal department store connects to Hotel Metropolitan. While the room was a little small, it was a typical size of other hotel rooms in Japan. I found the room to be nice and comfortable. Because our group had a lot of baggage that we needed 24 hour access to, the hotel staff was very accomodating every time we needed their assistance. And, with each request, they always greeted us with a smile and total professionalism. They really went out of their way to help our group and make sure that everything was okay each day.

I spent two nights at the Hotel Metropolitan. I booked on the internet and got a good deal that included breakfast. Breakfast is served either as a buffet in a western restaurant (pretty average) or as a set menu in the Japanese restaurant - this was a real gem -a fantastic experience and wonderful food ...and a great start to the day. The room was clean and had everything you need but nothing exceptional. There was no wifi in the room (a common issue in Japan) and all the TV channels were Japanese. The room was also hot: why do hotels always only put a doona on a bed even when the overnight temp is above 15 degrees! But the staff were very helpful and friendly and it was great value - and a great location right on top of Sendai station, so a great base for exploring this gorgeous and under-appreciated city!
