The best thing about this hotel is its location, right in the middle of Kabukicho, a very funky neighborhood. This might be one the very few "normal" hotel in this place, clustered with love-hotels. Strolling around the hotel, in the day and of course at night, is an interesting experience, because it's quite happening and photogenic, especially at night after... More

This was a decent stay. The hotels room looked very nice and I would say had the best shower heads I've ever experienced. However, Internet is about 500 yen a night which you would rent. Unfortunately, there's only a few that could be rented out and we couldn't because they were out. Internet should be free. The location is not... More

The hotel location is in the heart of Kabukicho (red light!) and it can get confusing finding the hotel. One can take the south exit from Shinjuku station or exit from Shio-Okubo (about 10-15 min walk). As the red light district can get colorful, when choosing this hotel make sure you are comfortable with the idea and know what to... More

While planning a two-week stay in Japan our only worry was the accommodation, as everybody says that hotels are quite expensive to stay in and the rooms are quite small. After days of research we managed to find the perfect mix - Hotel Villa Fontaine. The room was quite a decent size (if you can open the luggage on the... More

Stayed two nights last weekend. We booked a week out on the website directly at 18,000 Yen per night all in. Excellent location in Shinjuku. 10 minute walk from the JR station. We used the JR station to go EVERYWHERE. There are other lines that are closer, but they are different, offshoot lines and not convenient for other areas like... More

We booked the hotel through Expedia at an awesome rate. As we were staying for 8 nights, and not planning to spend a lot of time in the room, we shopped more on price than anything else. We did read plenty of other reviews and warnings saying that the hotel was in a red light district. TAKE MY ADVICE AND... More

Location is directly in the red light district of Shinjuku so lots going on 24 hrs. The hotel is very modern and comfortable. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Hotel is tricky to find so be sure to look it up on a map before arriving.

I'll start by saying that all hotels in Japan are small compared to Western standards. I do not count this against them. If tons of space is what you need, you should go to one of the major chains and pay a fortune. Villa Fontaine was surprisingly good for how cheap it was. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from... More

Was a bit unsure about staying here after reading that it was in the red light district, but this has to be one of the tamest red light districts in the world! Not once did we feel unsafe or threatened, in fact it was more intriguing than anything else. The rooms are tiny, barely space to put your bags, but... More

The location of this hotel is excellent - it's about a five minute walk from the main areas in Shinjuka and just under ten minutes to the main train station. You don't walk through the prettiest of areas to get there but it's fine and you see some interesting sites, especially at night. What you don't see on the website/materials... More
