Places We Stay : Hotel JAL City, Sendai

Read my previous posts on hotels:
Places we stay : Toyoko-Inn Akita
Places we stay : Toyoko-Inn Kawasaki
Breakfast of the day : at JAL City Hotel

We went to Sendai on Day 9 of our trip to Japan in September, with the purpose of going to Matsushima Bay. For the night, we decided to stay at Hotel JAL City and utilising our JAL Coupons that I redeemed using my  family's pooled mileage. Another free night in a hotel for us, apart from the free night in Toyoko-Inn Kawasaki!

This hotel is conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from Sendai Station.

The hotel's building sandwiched between the two high(er)-rise building, making it easy to be overlooked. Note the small shophouse next to it.I wonder how long it'll be for the small building to stay there before development steps in.

Our room was located on the 12th floor, but not much of a view from our window as there was an office building behind the hotel.
Our spacious room, that also came with free wired internet access.

Raimie insisted to sleep alone in one of the bed, so Mommy and Daddy had to share a bed that night. Not that Mommy and Daddy minded, though. Yahaha!!!
Toiletries in the bathroom. No, none of those little bottles you can stash away provided here. Unless of course, you want to bring back that big Tsubaki shampoo. But, would you? XD
Comfy, soft pyjamas laid out on the bed for guests.

It was really nice to be in a spacious room after spending night after night in a somewhat cramped rooms at Toyoko-Inn. It's nice to be spending the night in this room and I sure wish we can spend more nights there, but with the room rate in this type of hotel  costing double or triple of what we would pay at Toyoko-Inn, it is an indulgence.


  1. Looks like a nice hotel to stay! Alamak! Why the toiletries bottles so big? Want to take home also cannot! Haha!

  2. @foong,
    That's why lor... cannot bring back toiletries. LOL Last time stayed at Nikko, we got Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries.So nice. :D

  3. The hotel room looked decent and spacious.

  4. @Mei Teng,
    It was. Normal hotel room like the one we see in KL or elsewhere. ;)

    After spending so many nightsin small Toyoko-Inn rooms (which are cheap, BTW), sleeping in this room feel really luxurious! XD

  5. A hotel sandwiched with two towering buildings!

  6. the shampoo bottles are kinda big for hotel amenities. i wonder if any guests have attempted to take those big toiletries home.

  7. @Ayie,
    Yeah, and it's easy to overlook the hotel because of it. :D

  8. @LR,
    My guess is not many. Otherwise, they would've mount up a shampoo & soap dispenser on the bathroom wall! LOL

  9. From the shape of the building, the room looks like it might be narrow. No, I would not plan on bringing those big bottles home. How convenient for them to provide pj's. Do guests get a fresh one daily? :)

  10. @AVCrteur,
    Well, it felt pretty spacious for us and didn't notice whether it's narrow or otherwise. :D

    Yes, they provide fresh PJs daily. Quite the norm in most hotels I've stayed in Japan.
