Good location in Ueno, basic breakfast, good hotel for the price. Tokyo can be very expensive but this hotel is good value for money. Breakfast not that great but nice for it to be included as it's not included in many places. Rooms small but adequate with internet available in rooms via LAN cable.

Villa Fontaine Ueno is in a good central location with a short walk to the subway station. We paid a very reasonable rate for our 6 night stay in Tokyo in January 2010. The provided breakfast was pretty good but it got boring by the last few days we were there, some variety might help. The rooms themselves are clean... More

Reservation dates: 10/01-29/01. The hotel is located about a 15 minute walk from the main Ueno station. There are lots of little JR/train exits/entrances dotted around the hotel so you won’t always need to walk all the way to the main station. The Shin-Okachimachi entrance is just down the end of the road. Just across from the hotel is a... More

This hotel is an excellent value to stay in a city known for its expense. Within walking distance of Ueno and Akihabara stations (15 min), but then again I was there for the Tokyo Marathon and knew Japanese. The rooms are small, but very clean and suitable to my needs. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was... More

We are still staying at this hotel - we are here for three months at least, visiting with my Japanese wife's family - just down the road. The room is well provisioned, exceptionally clean and quiet. The room size is compact with a good sized bathroom. There is a small desk area. The room has a good sized TV and... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights for our visit to Tokyo. Do not expect this hotel to be a grand feature of Tokyo as it is not somewhere you spend all day in. This is ideal for business trips or city visits where you will be away all day and evening and returning to sleep. The room... More

This is an hotel just for sleeping, and in this respect it resembles many other "budget" hotels in Tokyo. On the plus side: . the room (1106) was not so small, and also the bathroom was a decent size (fitted with a normal size bathtub !!). The room was very quiet and the bed comfortable. On the minus side: .... More

This is my second time staying in Villa Fontaine; the first one was Nihombashi Hakozaki. Nearest station to reach here is Shin-okachimachi station which is under Toei Oedo line (E10). Take the A2 exit (I believe that's the nearest and easiest). Turn right, walk until you reach the crossing line, cross the street and turn right. Walk along until you... More

In the US, this hotel is probably comparable to a Motel 6. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of what you are getting yourself into. The staff is nice. Breakfast is generally free. I would not recommend this hotel unless your budget is limited. I did not find it a very relaxing environment. This hotel can be hard to... More

The hotel is well located, 15 min. walk from Ueno station which is usually the arrival station if you take the Skyliner from Narita airport. Even it was the first time in Tokyo for us (me and my husband), the hotel was easy to find and to get by walking (provided printed maps from internet). Even we came one hour... More
