The hotel is connected to Sendai station (by cutting through the mall) and is super convenient, as Sendai station is a hub with lots of restaurants and shops.
The hotel has seen better times and the decor is dated. The hallway smells of smoke. There is a newer and more modern Hotel Metropolitan Sendai East at the other end of the station. I chose this one because of the lower price and I am fine with what it is.
The toiletries are rather basic - no cotton pads or lotion of any kind.
