“Convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2010

Overall a decent hotel. Rooms are small but are expected. Like its location as it's very close to JR and MTR station. There is also a convenience store on on the ground floor of the hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2009

We stay at Century Royal almost every January. A group of 10 or 12 of us go skiing at Niseko and usually stay in Sapporo 2 days just for shopping. We love Century Royal as it's only 2min walk from the underground shopping arcade. Shopping during snowing season would be a mess as you have all your coat, scarf, hat, gloves, boots, bags.. we simply walk down from the hotel in sweater and sneakers and when we carry big and heavy bags after shopping, we can simply go back to the hotel without worrying the weather condition.

Hotel itself is not the most beautiful and elegant one; however, with Japanese standard, you won't be disappointed with its cleanliness. Hotel room is big enough including a little table and 2 sofa chairs. Everything else is just normal yet comfortable. We never had breakfast there as it's way too convenient to walk downstairs for various choices.

Century royal hotel is a very convienient hotel located just a street away with a 5-minute walk to the JR Sapporo station. The facilities were well designed and the rooms were well decorated. However, the breakfast was not very appetizing, with very little selection of food. They should try to improve in this area.
I would stay there again if I visit Sapporo.

The Century Royal Hotel is a short 5-minute walk from the Sapporo train station. Also, its location serves as an excellent starting point / base to explore the attractions of Sapporo since you’ll probably be using the train station to catch a train or subway to the various visitor attractions of Sapporo (i.e. Odori Park, Clock Tower, TV Tower). Last, the Old Government Building is a short 10-minute walk from thiis hotel.

Pros;
1) Check in and check out went very smooth.
2) Close to the Sapporo Train Station.
3) Bell staff provided excellent service.
4) Room appeared to be clean.

Cons:
1) Small room.
2) Room was dark
3) Room was older.

Stayed May 2008
