“Good location for exploring Tokyo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This hotel is modern and very clean. We had a superior room which was a good size (we had heard horror stories about tiny Japanese hotel rooms so we were very pleased!) and comfortable. The area around the hotel is right by the main road so it is not particularly scenic but the hotel is actually very quiet. It is also in a great location right above the subway station and only ten minutes walk from the main nightlife of Roppongi. The breakfast is pretty good, there is a lot of choice but you do have to eat in the main lobby which is a bit odd. We found the staff to be very nice and helpful.

On a recent business trip to Tokyo I stayed here. It was fine, clean and functional with no frills. Breakfast was ok for the 2 days I was there but may have been a bit samey had I been there longer. I arrived just after midday after a long flight and transfer and they wouldn't let me check in, not impressed! Ok but not amazing.....

The hotel is conveniently located near the underground/metro station and is close to the centre of Roppongi. The staff speak excellent English and are very attentive.

The bedrooms are small by European standards but not by Japanese standards. There are controls in the bedroom for central heat and air conditioning. The bathroom is very modern and the bath and shower are very good. Clean pajamas, robe and slippers are supplied daily along with fresh towels and linens.

The breakfast buffet is sufficient. It was very busy on weekday mornings.

There are a number of places to eat dinner nearby, some within the same complex. It is not far to walk to restaurants in the centre of Roppongi and we felt very safe walking back to the hotel late at night.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again or try another of the chain's locations in Tokyo to get to see another part of this fantastic city.

We were introduced to Villa Fontaine hotels via our friends in Tokyo. We made our reservations via Hotels.com. This was our second time at a Villa Fontaine property; our first time in Otemachi. I am a frequent business traveler in the States. I highly recommend this property. First, it is in a prime location. Roppongi is a beautiful area that offers a bit of everything: restaurants, nightlife, Embassies. We stayed in a Queen-bedroom. While the hotel does not offer incredible views of Tokyo the hotel is very comfortable and accessible. The hotel is near many different train lines that are within walking distance. It has just the right amount of amenities: tv, small desk and two chairs. There is not a big drawer for clothing so we kept our clothes in our bag. The rooms are not very big but I suspect most of the guests are business travelers or families on holiday and therefore not spending much time in the rooms. The mattresses at both locations were harder than typical hotel mattresses but so comfortable. The bathroom has a heated seat and is a full sized bath. Guests receive complimentary toothbrushes and hair brushes in the bathroom. We also really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast each morning. The staff was very polite and allowed us to keep our bags up front as we arrived hours before check-in from an international flight. Highly recommended to business travelers or those looking for an affordable hotel as they sightsee the wonderful city of Tokyo.

I had stayed at Villa Fontaine Roppongi hotel last week. It wasn't my first visiting at this hotel. And VF Roppongi is always one of the hotel in my mind when I planning a vacation to Tokyo. I chose this hotel is because my friend is living around that area and the reasonable room rates with breakfast (altho, not so good but at least free). Free wired internet. The room size is OK according to Japanese standard. One bad thing is there could be very noisy at night for the room which is faced to taffic streets and a big tour group of hotel guests. This hotel is located at the top of the metro station Roppongi 1 chome(business area) in Namboku line. So it is convenient enough to go anywhere. And there are number of restuarants just around the hotel property. So it is not a bad choice for business traveller and tourists who wanted to stay away from center of tourist & shopping area. Besides, there is about 20 mins walking distance to Roppongi Hill or Midtown if you know the way to go.

The hotel location (there are several) is Roppongi in central Tokyo, so convenient to subway lines. The Villa Fontaine's market niche can only be described as a business hotel. That is, basic, clean, frills free rooms for what in Tokyo is a very modest price.

The front desk staff are always polite, and at this Villa Fontaine location, fluent in English. The rooms are modest in size, but not as cramped as other Japanese business hotels. The mattress is fairly hard, but larger than average so good for tall foreigners. The chair at the desk is not comfortable (and no height adjustment), so working with a laptop isn't optimal. An example of the no-frills approach is that rooms only have wired ethernet access, which is free and fast. There is also free wi-fi in the lobby area.

The bath-shower are comfortable with plenty of hot water; small but not as cramped as many. All the basics are present. There is free coffee and tea in the room, but no room service, only vending machines on each floor. However the hotel is part of a subway station building complex with a variety of restaurants and convenience stores, and a short walk from the major (but noisy) Roppongi Crossing entertainment district.

Breakfast comes with the room price, and it Japanese oriented (rice, miso soup, etc.), with a few western items, and self-service. While not luxurious, it's filling and guests can go return for more.

Hotel Villa Fontaine Roppongi is a very good japanese hotel hence the rooms are small and the beds are hard. The room was really clean and was well kept after. Some of the staff spoke good english and they were eager to help. The rooms were quiet and well equipped with amenities.

I can't give this hotel a five since they serve the japanese breakfast in the lobby and your clothes catches a bit of that aroma. I had the breakfast while my wife wanted something more Western so she went to Maison Paul on the backside.

Rooms has free available internet by cable, free WiFi in the lobby so bring your Macbook and if you want to have free WiFi in the room as well.

The hotel is well located, the underground stops under it and taxis were queueing outside. The cherry trees were in bloom while we were there.

I will stay here next time when I am in this part of Tokyo.

Room Tip: The rooms with number x30 x31 have a view to the back so you do not look straight into another build...
