This is the smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in, but you expect that i think in a budget hotel in one of the most expensive cities in the world. It was in a good location for the city sights and the transport system. Food and drink options were limited, but quality was high. No room-based WiFi, but good connection in the reception area. All the staff, without exception, were brilliant. Friendly, courteous, efficient. Could not fault them.

I come to Japan often for business, I stated at the Villa Fontaine for two nights, the rooms are immaculate, the beds are great with down pillows and the AC gets nice and cold. The rooms are a little small but this is Japan after all, free internet however its hardwired in the rooms there is Wifi in the lobby. The hotel is located right next to the Shimbashi train station which makes it very easy to get around the city.

My only complaint about the hotel is the “free” breakfast, its pretty bad and very limited in what is served. If you like OJ, coffee milk and rolls its fine but the cooked food is not very good.

The hotel get’s an A in my books if your looking for something simple and right to the point. The hotel is located inside an office building which is a little odd but the entry is beautiful.

Modern, clean hotel, with rooms bigger than the standard in Japan. Breakfast is very good and relatively diverse.
The only issue is the location - it is super convinient for the fish market. But- for virtually any other destination - you have to walk ~900 meters in underground passages of office spaces to the subway / rail line. Nothing in the immediate proximity. In late evenings ( especially week ends), it isn't so fun.
So - if walking 9 minutes several times a day ( in nice passage) and nightlife isn't your thing, go for it. Value is very good for this part of Tokyo.

The hotel is new and conveniently located next to the shiodome subway station. Walking distance to shimbashi station 10 minutes (difficult to find the way).

Rooms small. Bathroom ceiling very low (approx 2 meters). Claustofobic.

Breakfast is poor (for me as european).

Park hotel tokyo is a better hotel for somewhat same rate.

If there's anything negative to be said about Hotel Villa Fontaine, it's the breakfast, which leaves a lot to be hoped for. But outside of that, the hotel works very well, rooms are quite big, clean and service works perfectly. It's not mind-blowing, but it's located in an area where there's two nice parks close by and metro station rather close as well. Free cable-connected Internet in the rooms. Only rather annoying thing especially if this is your first stop in the city after a long flight is that the access to the rooms is 3pm. Not the cheapest place, though.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms facing the Japanese Garden in the back, it's quite nice view.
