The good: Free coffee and free midnight noodles were cool features, as was the proximity to Family Mart and the Shopping Tunnel where all the action was happening. Room was basic but comfortable. Good shampoo was available (Pola brand). Good selection of toiletries in room. Their parking structure is well marked once you are on the right side street, otherwise one cannot see it from main thoroughfare.
The bad: Communal bath was men's only ?!? what about he women's sento/onsen? Parking Fee was not explained at time of charging card, as I was presented with a bill that was quite a bit higher than confirmation email charge. The bill needed a better explanation from staff. I requested parking in advance of stay and requested to know what the fee would be but never received a response, yet they already had me on their list of guests with cars. I feel like if hotel knows that if someone is arriving by car, that they need to give better directions to their parking lot, since we had to go to the wrong Dormy down the street to get this instruction. There are 3 other Dormy Inns in Sendai and access to this one was complicated by busy thoroughfares with very aggressive drivers and one way streets.More
