Hotel is in a quiet street walking distance from the subway (exit A5). The room was a standard size for Japan (not huge like in North America but it was decent). Staff was friendly despite their English being limited for some of them. We did not order breakfast with them (so we can't comment about it). While the hotel is... More

My room at this hotel has clean with en suite bathroom and everything was working the way it should. The breakfast was not great. There are coin laundry machines in the hotel. I got to borrow an umbrella for free when it was raining. The staff was helpful. Even if I checked out 30 minutes late they did not charge... More

I have stayed at many of the Villa Fontaine properties in Tokyo and have always written top-rated reviews. Sorry, but the Jimbocho property does not meet my expectations. I had booked a non-smoking room including breakfast. When I got there I had to wait for an hour because their check-in time is 3pm, not 2 pm like the other HVF's... More

The room was very clean and neat, a big plus! The room was a very small but just like other hotels in tokyo. staff was friendly, the location is in a backstreet which is very quiet, and just 8 min by foot to the JR station "Suidobashi". Will stay there again.

Great hotel in the heart of Jimbocho, walking distance to Tokyo station and Akihabara. The hotel is extremely clean, new (or newly refurbished) and we were so pleasantly surprised by the overall experience of staying there. The staff is really helpful and they understand you well and speak okish English, which you do not find everywhere in Japan. Lovely amenities... More

Very friendly hotel staff with good enough English, helpful with direction and stuff. Hotel location is close to a lot of good places, like Tokyo Palace, Akibahara electronic shops, and even the shopping streets in Ueno. We pretty much walked everywhere. Only when we were tired and took the metro back to hotel that we realized, Jimbocho station closest to... More

We spent 10 nights at Hotel Villa Fontaine Jimbocho, and our experience was really good overall. The staff might not speak the best english there is, but they try hard and were amazingly friendly towards us during our visit. They let us store our bigger luggage in their hotel for few days, while we went to visit Kyoto and Nara,... More
