nice hotel, in a quiet area of tokyo Jun 30, 2011
This hotel is located in a quiet street in central Tokyo, located near 2 subway stations(about a 5 minute walk)and also reasonably close to Tokyo station. lots of restaurants close by.

The rooms were very small however this didnt bother us as we were gone most of the day.Rooms are really clean and has everything you need

The Staff were helpful and welcoming.

Breakfast was provided each day which was soup,bread eggs and tea and coffee.

Basic Business Hotel: Affordable with Perks May 15, 2010
We chose the Hotel Villa Fontaine Hatchobori because of its convenient location one stop away from Tokyo Station. What we didn't know when we reserved, though, is that getting to the Keio line in Tokyo is an enormous undertaking! Because it's the line at the very bottom of the multi-storied complex, it takes 10-15 minutes of walking through the station just to get to the lines that connect to central attractions, like the Yamanote. This makes coming back to rest during the day tedious enough to be considered a non-option.

However, the hotel is quite close to the station, and is surrounded by charming hole-in-the-wall restaurants. The 7-Eleven pictured on the map has been torn down, but there are Lawson and am-pm convenience stores with a wide enough selection to provide our dinners for the past few days. The streets are filled with suited businessmen and women who are somber during the day and a little raucous at night--but you should be exhausted enough to conk out despite the laughter coming from the drinking establishments.

Since we're twenty-somethings with a tiny budget, used to the standards of Motel 6, the amenities provided this hotel were a pleasant surprise. We've heard that Japanese hotel rooms run small, but our double room is perfectly sized for two travelers who just need a place to crash and do some light research. If you bring your own ethernet cable, you can connect to the internet for free. It's a little slow, so don't try uploading a ton of photos or anything, but you can access any site you would at home. A little kitchen area contains an electric water heater and small refrigerator, which isn't terribly cold but good enough to keep beverages and snacks for a night. The television is small and only accesses Japanese channels, but you can pay for English movies if you're desperate for entertainment (and I don't see why anyone would be--you're in the middle of Tokyo!)

Every day the maids provide new Q-tips, packets of powdered tea, cups and fresh pajamas. The soaps and shampoos don't come in awkward little travel bottles, but big dispensers. The mirror is equipped with a nifty defogger and the bidet toilet is something of a curiosity with heated seats that turn on automatically when they sense your presence. The hair dryer has several settings if you need to style your cut. The bath tub is enormous...but be forewarned, the "hot" water is HOT. If you want to take a hot bath or shower, turn the "cold" knob twice as far as the hot or you'll end up red as a fresh-cooked lobster. Be sure to read the warning sign on the door--the heat from the shower can actually trigger the fire alarm, so keep the door closed.

The free breakfast is a lot fancier than your typical coffee-and-donuts continental fare, if a bit odd. The staff provides an enormous bowl of greens and toppings for salad, hard-boiled eggs, thick slices of white and wheat berry bread for toasting, plain and raisin rolls, small donuts, and soup. Extras include butter, strawberry jam and orange marmalade, fresh coffee with cream/sugar at the tables, black tea, orange juice and milk.

The counter attendants do speak English, though they're not terribly comfortable doing it. They mostly just repeat memorized speeches and have to try really hard to answer question (as anyone would speaking in a foreign language they don't use regularly). But if you speak slowly, smile and nod to encourage them, you should be fine.

Hotel Villa Fontaine Hatchobori Tokyo Apr 02, 2010
The Hotel Villa Fontaine Hatchobori Tokyo is located 15 minutes from the Main Tokyo Station or 8 minutes from the Hatchobori Station. If you dislike rolling suitcases through the crowds, then you can always grab a taxi, I like doing things the hard, cheap way!

I was surprised to see a hotel room that small, but yes, it is possible! How the two of us survived off the oxygen in the room, I will never know, because it is that small! Still, it was very clean and though we never had anyone clean our room, they would leave a bag full of amenities outside our door daily.

Also, there is no place to store your clothes so you will be living out of your suitcase, though there is a hanger tree in the room that holds 6 items. The walls are a little thin, as well as we could here the guy next door sneezing and hanging up his clothes on the hanger tree in the morning and late at night. But to be fair, this guy could sneeze!!!

It is a unique set up as in the center of the hotel there is a big courtyard at the bottom and you can stare straight down from it from the top floor. We were on the 12th floor, which was the highest. The roof is open and so if it is raining, you will know it by looking down into the courtyard. At night they reflect animated clocks on the walls of various floors to let you know the time. Very unique and cool!

There is free internet included in your room, though not Wi-Fi, still, always a nice extra. The bathroom is really tiny, though the toilet is heated and amazing, so I can live with a tiny bathroom. The shower takes up most of the bathroom, but has great pressure and is big enough to move around which is a plus. The TV, is small! It is smaller than my computer monitor at home. I didn’t think they made TVs that small! Well, they do, because it was at the Hotel Villa! But you didn’t come to Japan to watch TV, or did you?

The staff is very nice and courteous and breakfast is included in the price though it is a little sparse. It included, salad, soup, boiled eggs, bread and pasta. Not the best spread, but it got you going and was free, so no complaints here. Load up on the carbs and enjoy your day!

The hotel is located within walking distance of Ginza and the Tsukiji Fish Market. It is a quieter neighborhood as it is within the financial district, but after spending all day in the busy areas of Tokyo, it was nice to get away at night as the subway was close enough for my standards. On the weekdays, don’t be surprised to see few tourists at breakfast and tons of business people. It through us for a loop but then we remembered we were in the business district.
