“Nice clean hotel 5 minutes walk from JR.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2012 via mobile

This hotel is probably the link between European ans Japanese standards.
Located in an office building area just 5 minutes walking from the JR line.
No tourist here, no English menus and not to many frills.
Rooms are pretty small but not as small as many Japanese. Breakfast is served in the lobby and is either Japanese (fish, salad and natto) but also European (croissant, butter and coffee).
The mix, I have to say, is not always perfect: you can not really open 2 suitcases at the same time in the room and the croissants smells a little bit of cabbage, but still I enjoyed my stay there.
Everything is spotless and the staff is smiley and ready to help: their English is a little bit limited and I strongly recommend to double (triple) check if they understood what you wanted to say before you give it for granted.
Recommended if you wish to avoid loud places and other tourists.

I have stayed at this hotel an average of 10 times a year, 2 weeks at a time, for the past 2+ years as it is right by the Tokyo branch of my company. The rooms are small by western standards but pretty large for a Japanese business hotel. The room, including the bathroom, is very clean and the fact that each room has its own AC/heater unit is wonderful as it allows you to have total control over the temperature of the room. A nice large TV, free internet (though wired), and a fridge rounds out the amenities. The bed is firm and comfortable for me, though I have heard from others that they feel it is too firm. There are also plenty of power plugs in the room for all your electronic charging needs. The room is very quiet and you rarely hear anyone else. There is a coin laundry on the 14th floor if you don't want to use the laundry service. Near the hotel is a 24 hour Lawson's convenience store as well as a post office where, if you are a foreign visitor, is a great place to use the ATM. A supermarket along with a drug store is also across the street along with some dining options as well. A short walk from Tamachi Station with more restaurants on the other side of the station. Tamachi is a more quiet station off of the Yamanote Line, one station away from Shinagawa. Breakfast is simple but convenient and good. The staff is very helpful and friendly. And the laundry service, though pricey (like in all hotels), is incredibly convenient for business travelers. Each room only has a pant press and no iron but you can rent that from the front desk if necessary. Overall, after having stayed at a number of business hotels in Japan, this one, so far, has been the best balance in terms of price, space, and convenience.

We stayed here after a late-night arrival at Haneda airport. It's a 35 minute train ride from the airport. There are hotels closer to the airport but we wanted a trade-off: Not too far from the airport after our flight (and not too expensive a taxi ride if we missed the last train!), but reasonably close to Tokyo where we work, for the next morning.

Check-in is efficient and the room was small but modern and comfortable, about 5-10 mins from Tamachi station. It has the usual small-ish but spotless bathroom typical of this kind of hotel.

If you're not familiar with Tokyo, definitely print a map before you go.

A good value option if the airport hotel is expensive.

Hotel Villa Fontaine Tamachi is located just a leisure 5 mins walk from JR Tamachi Station (which is just one station from Shinagawa) and probably another 5 mins walk to Mita Station. I wouldn't say the room was big but it was spacious enough for 2 mid size luggages plus another 2 hand-carried bags. The staff, though they spoke little English, were very helpful and friendly. Check in time is 3pm and check out time is 11am and the staff adhere strictly to these timings BUT you can leave your stuff with them and collect them later. Room was quiet and one couldn't hear any traffic though the hotel is located next to the railway and a traffic junction. Some rooms offer city view while some offer the Mount Fuji view.

Complimentary breakfast was provided during our entire stay. Not much varieties though but the basic stuff like rice, miso soup, boiled eggs, milk, orange juice, steam salmon and salad. Simple breakfast and my wife and I enjoyed it.

Not much shopping in the vicinity but there is a supermarket and a few restaurants located at Granpark Building, just 1 minute walk across the hotel. There are a few eateries located just outside Tamachi station next to the police station. If you happen to fall sick during the trip, do not worry. There is a clinic just next to the station.

I would strongly recommend this hotel and i will return to stay in this hotel again if i do travel to Tokyo again. For the price you are paying, it is top value.

Room Tip: You can choose between smoking or non smoking room There is a self service laundry. Y100 for a pack...

I stayed here two years ago by myself and I couldn't have asked for a better place. I found a deal online for less than $100/night and I got much more than what I paid for. I stayed in the Healing Room for 4 nights
Pros:
-Great view of the Tokyo Tower (though I heard it was getting blocked by construction recently)
-Attentive service by the front desk
-Foot Massager in the room (Need I say more?)
-Continental and Japanese breakfast choices and the bread is so good!
-A supermarket right next to the hotel so I bought snacks and bentos there. Very convenient
-Central location (The station itself doesn't have much to see but it is near everything)

Some reservations
-Shared with office building though separated by a glass wall. (one side of the lobby is used for breakfast/concierge area, while the other is where employees come in and go)
-Around 5-8 minute walk from the station. I didn't mind the strolls especially in the morning and evenings seeing local Japanese people go on with their everyday lives
-Tempur-pedic style beds..I liked them but I don't think everyone else does.

Overall, it was a great experience staying here and I would definitely return.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to email the hotel about the views especially with construction going on. They re...

Hotel is located close to Tamachi / Mita station. The rooms are not large (but larger than many Japanese economy hotels), modern and well designed/decorated. They provide green powdered tea, as well as good coffee which is unusual in Japan. There is free internet, flat screen tv (on english channel is cnn) and a fridge. The staff are helpful and one can use the laptop at reception for printing.
Like in most Japanese hotels breakfast is the same everyday but quite good all the same (rice, salad, eggs, sausage, miso soup, coffee, tea,orange juice, cereal, yoghurt and bread/pastries). There are quite a few japanese, indian and italian restaurants around and a supermarket nearby.
The hotel is the top 4 floors of an office building. Despite being right next to the railway line (with views of the trains passing) it is totally quiet. The blackout curtains work very well and one can control the heating / air conditioning oneself.
I will return again and would recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms on one side have view of Tokyo Tower. On the other one might get to see Mt Fuji. The corner ro...

This is a business hotel but we stay there each year when visiting family. The rates are excellent and a breakfast is included. Although the rooms are not large they are very clean and well maintained. The staff go out of their way to provide a professional and excellent service. For example we left some luggae there after check out to go on a road trip. On our return a week later it had been delivered to our room.
