With so many vibrant neighborhoods in Tokyo to choose your accommodation from, it can be a difficult decision! The most popular areas tend to be expensive and with often shockingly small rooms, while the more spacious hotels may be intolerably inconvenient. Hotel Villa Fontaine in Shinjuku, however, offers up the best of both worlds, with a reasonably sized room, downright spacious bathroom, and the convenience of a Shinjuku location.
A new facility with a modern look
From the outside, you already know that this hotel is going to be clean, modern, and efficient. The location is accurately represented as Shinjuku, but it is just a touch to the periphery, which is not a bad thing at all. From your hotel’s front door, you could easily be at half a dozen train stations within a ten minute walk. Now that’s convenience!
Quick and easy check in, with equally easy bag storage
Your 24-hour manned front desk makes check in a breeze, and the staff is happy to store your luggage at no charge for the hours either before or after your stay. English speakers are on staff, so there is no need to worry about having to awkwardly stumble through a cross-cultural check in process. It should be noted that this hotel, like virtually every other in Japan, will be a stickler about their 3 p.m. check in time, so if you arrive early in the day, just drop the bags and get exploring the city.
Spaciousness that speaks of value
Most hotels of any repute in Shinjuku will run you a fair chunk of change, but the Hotel Villa Fontaine is more than fairly priced, especially considering the spaciousness of the rooms. If this doesn’t look spacious to you, consider yourself fortunate in your Tokyo hotel experiences! Yet, more than just relative spaciousness, the room offers comfort and quality, both in the bedding as well as the furnishings. Naturally, a well-sized TV is at the ready, but the scenes outside the hotel are sure to be more entertaining!
Oo-la-la, look at that bathroom!
Again considering the affordability of this hotel, you should be anywhere from pleasantly surprised to downright shocked to see as grandiose a toilet and bathing area as this. Spotless, spacious, and sparkly new, there is nay another superlative to which succinctly summarize. Hot water gushing, blow dryer a-blowing, and beauty products lined up awaiting your command, you will be hard pressed to think of anything the hotel could have done better with this bathroom.
Low cost comfort in a colorful, convenient conclave
The area surrounding the hotel has so many colorful things to see, that you may not want to waste any time in the room! Once you’ve explored the city to the point where you just can’t go no more, however, you’ll be happy as a clam to come back to the Hotel Villa Fontaine in Shinjuku. So much comfort, relative spaciousness, and convenience is a rare find in the high-rent Shinjuku district of Tokyo.
