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.
