The Hotel Villa Fontaine Tokyo-Shinjuku is a simple tourist-friendly business hotel with rock-bottom rates in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district.
About 10 minutes from Shinjuku Station in East Shinjuku’s Kabukicho district (Tokyo’s red-light district), this hotel offers a convenient location (as long as you don’t mind walking through a slightly seedy area to get there).
The rooms are small, the breakfast is basic and the service is simple, but if you’re looking for a bargain, this is one of the cheapest hotels in Shinjuku. It’s not great for families, but for couples and singles who don’t mind the location, it’s a good bargain.
