“Chic modern room conveniently located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

I travel at least 7-10 times a year to Japan for work. No matter how many times I go to Japan, Villa Fontaine is still one of my favorite hotels. The rooms are chic and modern and most importantly clean! I had a horrible experience at another hotel in Japan that I checked out of that hotel within 2 hours of checking in and moved to Villa Fontaine. There is Internet access which is a must for business trip. I enjoy the daily breakfast which is included. This hotel is located next to Conrad and next to the train station. There is also a lot of restaurants within walking distance to this hotel. I recommend staying at this hotel for the best value for the price, clean rooms, and convenient location. I will stay here again for my next trip.

This hotel in Shiodome was a perfect last night to gather ourselves and prepare for our long journey home. The facilites were gorgeous, the food was delicious, the staff were very kind in arranging our transit back to the hotel and there were even tiny, little slippers waiting for our 1.5 year old daughter. It might not be the best location from which to sightsee, but as a easy night's sleep, it hits the spot.

I sayed here for 6 nights in January.
The location is very good but it may be a bit difficult to find first time from the train station.
I had a good experience as I was upgraded to a larger room 30m2 with a garden view.

The Service is very good, they serve a simple Japanese breakfast which is included and the entire hotel feels of higher quality.

I recommend this hotel not only for business but also for family travellers, especially their larger rooms.

Located in a very newly developed area of Tokyo, Shiodome, this hotel is a very new build and caters, I think, for the business traveller rather than the tourist. As a business traveller, I found the hotel to meet all needs of the business person on a visit to Tokyo but it does lack a few things. No. 1 Personality - it is very bland and functional - no restaurant, no bar, no business centre. No.2 Breakfast takes place in the lobby and the food is much more Japanese than Western. However, the bedroom was great and the cost was very competitive for Tokyo.

Typically a business hotel, we used this location for a private vacation. This hotel is located only a few blocks from the bustling Gina Street, where there are loads of hovel bars (small, local bars). In addition, the Shidome complex has plenty of dinning options, as well as a small grocery store. Another plus was the two close subway connections that making visiting any other part of the city easy. Breakfast was also great and staff were friendly and helped out with their limited english as best they could.

Stayed two nights at this quiet nicely appointed hotel
Staff were very helpful and courteous
Room was clean and tidy - the bed was firm and there was a selection of pillows - found that very handy with a crook neck
Slept like a log
Bathroom had all the accessories in case you forgot your toothbrush etc
Breakfast was non-western but that was handy as I tend to eat too much if there are too many goodies
Checkout was 11am and you need to pay 1500 yen per hour thereafter
Overall great location and a nice hotel

Room Tip: Be prepared for non-western breakfast On the plus side - 10 min walk from ginza

This was a very nice hotel. The rooms were a bit small but very clean and comfortable. The staff was always very helpful and there was always someone who spoke English well. The hotel was conveniently located in Shiodome near both a JR line station and the Tokyo metro (and walking distance to the fish market if that’s on your itinerary). The included breakfast was very good as well. Overall a great value pick for anyone looking for a simple and comfortable hotel from which to explore Tokyo.
