Hotel Monterey Sendai

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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 ..it was a business tip. From the beginning i had chose the right channel "hotelstravelle.com" 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.

The location is really good just 5 min walk from JR Station West Exist and near Parco II. The check in it's like all the Japanese hotels at 14:00 and you can let your suitcase in the lobby in my case when I back my suitcase was in my room. They personal speak more or less english but they try to help you a lot. My room was really good, really big and beautiful, the room smelt so good and was very tidy. The extras they they have like the SPA and the massage ... wow .. the Spa have a lovely view for the city and you can relax a lot , each sit have a tv (in japanese) but also you can eat there. The osen .. really good I spent all the morning thhat I have to back to Tokyo. The massage was in my room and the guy was so good, that night I slept like a baby. Near the hotel are a lot malls, shops and the main street that you can find wathever you want.

This hotel is a quirky mix between mock Art Deco with Showa-era styling. A pretty unusual mix. The rooms are pretty spacious by Japanese standards but all furniture is small. The breakfast, as in most Japanese hotels of any price point, is extremely poor by comparison of any country in Asia let alone the rest of the world. It's always best to go for the Japanese food.

Location: Good location with 5 min walk from JR station west exit and convenient for shopping too. Room: Stayed 1 night in a triple room. Space is adequate with comfy bed, pillow and pyjamas. Clean bathroom with no issue, I like their shampoo.

We stayed three nights in this hotel, in a quaint room on the 15th floor, with a view overlooking the street and back to the JR Station, only 2 blocks away. Although the furniture in the room was old and looked well used, the beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was really nice (it must have been re-done recently). Our package included breakfast every morning, which was one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had in Japan. There is a nice Onsenn on the top floor that is only an extra 1,000 yen. The free wifi worked well in the room, but we couldn't find any English language TV stations. When you initially enter the hotel, the lobby and the front desk are rather old and unimpressive. But once you get past that, the hotel is quite nice. We'd stay there again.
