Hotel Green Park Sendai

A budget hotel with spacious rooms and a great location

Choosing the right hotel is very important in a trip and many aspects must be taken into consideration. In my case the price is a priority, and in Sendai I found a very affordable place to stay – Hotel Green Park Sendai.

The hotel offers many conveniences such as an en suite bath with free toiletries, a flat-screen TV, an electric kettle and free tea bags, a fridge, a hairdryer and air conditioner, and free Wi-Fi. There are also dry cleaning and laundry facilities provided for an additional fee. Detergent can be purchased at the 24-hour front desk. An internet PC and a coffee station are available in the lobby.

Another important aspect of choosing a hotel is the location. Hotel Green Park has a very convenient location – it's right near Jozenji-dori, known for its alley of tall trees. It's approximately 15 to 20 minutes walk from Sendai Station and there is the choice of walking along the green Jozenji-dori or the undercover Hirose-dori shopping street, which is a good choice on a rainy day. From the hotel it's possible to walk to the historical district of Sendai along Nishi Park, a very popular spot in spring due to the many sakura trees. Walking up to Aoba mountain is also quite picturesque and easy.

The neighborhood location of a hotel is important, too. Near the Hotel Green Park Sendai there is a branch of the big discount store Don Quixote, a few convenience stores including 7-11 and Family Mart, as well as some good restaurants and shops. It's also in close proximity to the entertainment street Kokubuncho-dori for anyone wanting to explore Sendai's nightlife. On the whole, the surroundings are quiet and nice.

I stayed in the Hotel Green Park for a week. The room was quite spacious, breakfast was included in the price, and the staff were friendly and helpful. I was very happy with my choice!

Getting there

Hotel Green Park Sendai can be reached in 15 to 20 minutes on foot from Sendai Station. The closest Subway stations are Hirose-dori and Kotodai-koen.

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo!

Agree! I always look for hotels that are easy to find as I don't speak Japanese. ; )
