“Better than expected ”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel from Dec27-Jan1 and we can only say it is worth the money you pay for it.
Positive: breakfast, location and friendly staff
Negative: the room is small, pillows and mattress are not very comfy...

If you are traveling on a budget this hotel is perfect.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Room is small, but it was comfortable. I had to say I MISSED their breakfast. Their pickled cucumber are sooooo good. A distance to walk to the train station. Very near to a supermarket and few restaurants around. Located in a quiet area. Suitable for people who loves to stay in not so crowded area.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with family

For Tokyo, our deal was hard to beat.

The hotel was just 5-7 minutes from a JR station (Tamachi). There are a supermarket (we got a great deal on Meiji chocolate bars) and a Lawson store nearby.

Breakfast was included in our deal and it was excellent. The croissants are one of the most delicious croissants I have ever eaten (and I have been to France many times). And I highly recommend the Japanese breakfast of rice with pickles and miso soup. It is a great way to warm your stomach and start your day.

The staff were very efficient and very helpful, although their English is rather limited. We arrived at the hotel soaking wet with Typhoon Francisco. It was too early to check in. The receptionist took care of our luggage, giving us a receipt for the luggage as well. Very professional. Before we headed out, the receptionist promptly offered (with hand gestures) 3 big umbrellas. The hotel has everything you could possibly need: an adaptor, a nail clipper, painkillers. If it is not already in your room, you can ask for it from the receptionist.

I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I go back to Tokyo.

Very clean hotel , good size room for Japanese standards.
Very near Tamachi JR station and supermarket.
Breakfast buffet. Mainly Japanese breakfast, but also with scrambled eggs and sausages.
Wifi only in the lobby, lan in the room.
We will book this next again, no doubt.

Stayed for the first 6 days of our 2-weeks honeymoon trip. This is the best hotel I've found and booked via Hotels.com in terms of value, location, and service! It is just a 5-minute walk away from the JR Tamachi so getting the JR Rail Pass will be an awesome deal. Also, Tamachi is just a few stations from Shinagawa which is accessible coming from Narita Airport via NEX Narita Express train. Central Tokyo station is also accessible for the long-haul shinkansen bullet trains to other major cities.

Hotel Villa Fontaine is actually in a commercial building. In the morning, there are a lot of businessmen in the area. But at night, it becomes a quiet neighborhood especially on weekends. There is a combini (convenience store) and a supermarket just across the hotel. Also, a wide variety of restaurants and a hyakyu yen (100 yen) shop are nearby.

The hotel accommodation includes FREE buffet breakfast served in the hotel lobby.
Compared to other business hotels I've stayed at in Japan, this has the biggest room which is a rarity in Japan for such a bargain price.

Room has:
-double bed
-trouser press
-20"~ LCD TV; Japanese channels only
-in-room internet cable; wi-fi is available only in the lobby
-mini fridge
-a/c heater/cooler
-Japanese night gown
-room slippers
-mini cabinet
-electric pot
-hair dryer
-bathroom: toilet and shower/tub; again, it is bigger compared to other business hotels.
-drink vending machines at the hallway

Hotel also has eco-door magnets for indicating the level of housekeeping needed e.g. fresh towels/linens change.

I'll definitely recommend this to my friends.

Clean room, reasonable size. Bed a little too hard for my likening. Great view of the train lines including bullet trains and Mt Fuji when it was out. Free breakfast satisfactory, not a lot of variety. Only about a 5min walk to the train station which was convenient. Also a supermarket and 24 hour convenience store just across the road. No WiFi in rooms but it was available in the lobby. Overall I can highly recommend if you can get a good deal.

Room Tip: Mt Fuji side.

This hotel is located only 6 minutes away from the JR Tamachi Station and about the same distance from the Mita subway Station. The most popular train called Yamanote passes by the JR Tamachi and is only three station away from the Central Tokyo Station where you can take the Shinkansen to different cities like Kyoto or the Narita Expres to the airport.
When you get off the Jr. Train you just head to the east exit and as you approach the stairs you can see through the Windows the hotel building on the right (brick color). After you descend the escalator, walk a few feet and turn on the first right (you will see “Excelsior Café”) and walk a couple of minutes passing by the post office and you will reach the hotel at the corner across the street.
The hotel is in a business area and in front of the hotel there is a plaza with restaurants and a supermarket and you can use the ATM from the nearby post office to get money. There is also a convinient store (Lawson) very closet o the hotel
The room and bathroom were very spacious and clean and the view from the 15th floor was excellent. There i also Lan internet in the rooms and wi fi in the lobby
The complimentary brunch style breakfast buffet was served in the lobby and had Yogurt, Miso soup, dried seaweed, rice, salmon or mackerel, salad with Japanese or ranch dressing, eggs, sausage, marmalade, croissant, fresh bread buns, butter, tea, coffee, milk, orange juice.
The room had a refrigerator and they put cold water bottle everyday and there is an electric pot water heater so you can prepare your tea or coffee.
There was a foot massager in the room, also hair drier which my wife found it very good and a trouser press. The pillows were very comfortable and they also put sleeping gown and slippers.
