Hotel Monterey Sendai

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is very nice and the staff are very friendly and did their very best at dealing with our language barrier. We traveled with out three kids ages 4,6 and 12. The room came with three twin beds which is common in Japan. We pushed two twins together to make a king and my husband and I took the other twin. We had breakfast in the hotel which is nice but is very traditionally Japanese. It is very close to Sendai station and there is a family mart one block away. Parking for bigger vehicles or if they are full is tricky and they will send you to another garage about a block away as well. It will cost you 1000 yen a day to park. They gave all of the kids cute little gifts to include slippers, washcloths and bath toys. The rooms are nice but to American standards they may seem outdated. Overall we were very impressed with our time here.

Connected by an elevated walkway, this hotel is very close to the JR train station. They provided a kids' amenity upon check-in, which was a nice surprise. Breakfast in the hotel was very good. Being so close to the train station, my kids enjoyed watching the bullet trains arrive and depart the busy station. Closest convenience store is located across the street. No vending machines in the hotel, which is strange for a japanese hotel. We enjoyed the baths located on the top floor (nominal fee for hotels guests).

Near the Station , Restaurants and Shopping. A typical themed Monterey Hotel ! This one has some art nouveau elements and mixed into the castle like facade .... hmmmm ( strange ? ) Good sized rooms and bathrooms. Comfy bedding, pillows and very clean rooms. Kind helpful efficient staff. Each floor requires a key card for entry so there is some extra security .... for singles and families with young kids ( although Japan is tops in being Safe)

great find!! almost across the street for JR Sendai station, close to Clis Rd covered mall, great breakfast, front desk always very nice, helpful! stayed 2 times, stayed 2 times, both rooms were nice.

Hotel has an old charm. It is in a great location, right next to the Sendai station and the shopping malls. I prefer modern hotels. However I cannot fault the hotel, it is well maintained and has a charming lift. On the lift you feel like you have gone back in time. Staff in true Japanese style were friendly and helpful. The reception area was tiny. Again I have to complain about lack of English language entertainment and news channels. This is a problem in Japanese hotels I have been too. Seem to be focused on entertaining local travelers.

I had booked to stay at that hotel during the period from 01.04 - 5.04.2017 was a business tip. From the beginning i had chose the right channel "" to book my accommodation there with the lowest hotel rates . Then , the welcoming of the staff from picking me up from the airport till the end of my stay. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. Thanks ...I will come back again sure.

Within a few minutes walk from Sendai station the Monterey charmed us with its uniqueness and excellent in house French style restaurant. It also has a hot springs onsen which guests can visit at a discounted rate to public. Close to shops and restaurants and an inexpensive 5minute cab ride to an incredibly long arcade of shops and restaurants in Jozenji - Dori Avenue. Alternatively you can buy a ticket for the Loople bus and hop on hop off.

Hotel Monterey Sendai is a couple of minutes walk from Sendai Station, and this is the very reason I chose this hotel. As a foreigner in Sendai, it's very convenient to recognise the hotel building from the station. The check-in was smooth and the room looked okay except the basin. It was wet even before I used it (maybe the water came out loose from the tap?), and although it was hard to see, there were some black/brown spots. In fact, I booked a double room because I'd like to sleep on a bigger bed, but my reservation was amended to a twin bed room without my having been notified until check-in. Even though I preferred to have one bigger bed rather than a twin beds, I was too tired to mention that after a day of sightseeing and walking around. That was kind of disappointing. Breakfast was served at the banquet room in buffet style. There were plenty of selections and local food as well, and I enjoyed it. The staff there were very kind and caring.

The hotel is only a few minutes walk from Sendai Station. Just use the overpass walkways and take the stairs down pretty much in front of the hotel. The hotel has kind of an antique/european feel to it which makes it different to most Japanese hotels. The room was spacious, clean and the wooden flooring something different for a hotel in Japan. The roof top onsen (hot baths) seems a bit expensive if you have to pay (think 1,000 yen/visit) - luckily I had a free coupon included in my stay. A bit of a walk to the bar area of Kokubuncho but being close to the station was a plus.

We stayed in Hotel Monterey Sendai for 5 nights and the Hotel is very close to Sendai station which is the very closer to the shopping district of Sendai. The hotel rooms are reasonable size and interior looked quite old. The hotel was very strict in check-in time (2 PM) and when we arrived at 1.15 PM, they counter staff asked us either to wait till 2 PM or pay JPY 1000 for early check-in. We were travelling almost 24 hours and felt really not so happy with this treatment. The breakfast is mostly Japanese but they maintain good amount of continental food varieties for International guests. There is a live kitchen providing nice hot omlette. My favourite was the smoothie with 14 ingredients.
