With a stay duration of 4 nights and 5 days as a tourist during Golden Week in Japan for the very first time in my life, I was very happy with my decision to having chosen Hotel Villa Fontaine as my base. Folks at reception were professional, courteous, informed, amiable and willing to help. Hotel has a convenient location and provides easy access and did not break my middle class bank. I took Airport Limousine Bus, that dropped me to ANA Intercontinental hotel, about 2 mins away by taxi to Villa Fontaine. Although as a tourist i spent only couple hours each night in the room to get some rest and shower, it was a nice room i felt welcomed into (i got smoking room because i wanted one). Finally i donated my umbrella to the hotel because i could not fit it into my bag, use it if you want. Highly recommended place.
Too bad that the main building of the Okura is being torn down and replaced for the Olympics. This is an older property, but it is elegant in an understated way. My only complaint is that the bar allows smoking. There is a no smoking room off the bar. I think the bar should be non-smoking entirely.
The staff are fantastic! But, the polite treatment is what one expects from upper end Japanese hotels.
Food and drink are expensive, but this is the Okura. There are plenty of other fine dining options nearby.
I highly recommend.
this hotel is simply amazing. Luxury all the way. The staff are very polite and cannot do enough for you. We had some super meals not to mention the fantastic cocktail waiter who produced the most fabulous drinks before your very eyes. Great meals in restaurant too. there was a spa and pool but we had no time to use it.....regrets !!!! A real wow factor. Easy transport to and from airports. Also, walking distance to shops and restaurants and there are masses of them. Gardens close by and a stunning fountain display. We stayed for 2 nights before we travelled to Kyoto. We loved it so much, we returned there for our last day.
