変なホテル henn na Hotel は変じゃないホテルー仙台

先日オープンしたばかりの「変なホテル 仙台国分町」に泊まってきました!

まず、何が変かというと、ホテルに入るといきなりロボットのホログラムがお出迎え↓

変なホテル henn na Hotel

非対面式のチェックインです。最近、病院とかでも多いですよね。

タッチパネルに打ち込んで受付は簡単に済ませられます。

これ何がいいかと言うと、コロナ感染予防はもちろん、いちいちホテルに出入りするときの鬱陶しさがない!

受付の人に「行ってらっしゃいませー」とか「お帰りなさい!」とか言われるの、サービスだとわかってはいるけれど、見張られているようで嫌な時ありますよね?

それがないので、泊まる身にはストレスフリーです。

さて、お部屋の中はこんな感じです。全然変じゃない!

それどころか、最新鋭の設備で超居心地いいです。

まず、枕が最高。LOFTYというブランドのホテルピローを採用しています。

身長154cm、頭は平均的日本人絶壁型の私が数年ぶりによく眠れたなーと思いました。

正直、お取り寄せも考えています。

もう一つは、クリーニングマシーンのLGスタイラー。

着た洋服をハンガーにかけておくだけで、嫌な臭いやしわを蒸気が除去してくれます。洋服をリフレッシュして翌朝は出発。旅先で洗濯をする暇がない時など、便利ですよね。除菌コースもプラスできるので、コロナ禍での旅では心強い味方!

変なホテル henn na Hotel

ということで、「変なホテル henn na Hotel 」は全然変なホテルじゃありません。

オープンしたての今は、ダブルルーム1泊1名 5,063円~。(2021年9月現在)

平日ということもあり、学生や若者のゲストが多かったですが、サラリーマンや大人のカップル旅にこそ使ってほしい。コスパ最高のホテル、お薦めです!

Noren in Tohoku

Noren in Tohoku

Tohoku (東北) is the name for northeast Japan. The region consists of the following prefectures - Akita, Aomori, Fukushima, Iwate, Miyagi, and Yamagata.

Sendai, the largest city, on the Tohoku Shinkansen from Tokyo and Ueno stations is regarded as the main gateway to the region.

Tohoku is known for its apples in Aomori, rice and sake in Akita, fine food, craft beer (hops are grown here), beautiful women, and largely impenetrable accents.

The noren curtains you will see outside shops and businesses in the area reflect Tohoku's distinctive culture and its many festivals. In particular, Tanabata in Sendai, Neputa in Hirosaki, and Nebuta in Aomori city are major annual festivals. All draw thousands of visitors in a normal year.

The goldfish nebuta lanterns seen in the first and last photograph are believed to ward off bad luck. The lantern floats of the Nebuta festival itself are a common motif as are dragonflies and the mon (crests) of the one-time feudal lords (daimyo) of the region.

Noren curtains hung outside a shop or restaurant indicate whether it is open or not. They also define a transition from a public to a more private and intimate space.
