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, with no fees whatsoever.
Once we got back, we realized that we had made a mistake with the booking, and arrived in Tokyo without a room for one night. The lady at the desk called different hotels and tried her very best to get us a room at any hotel nearby she could think of.
We managed to get a room at a different hotel for one night, and they let us leave our extra luggage with them until we got back there. That made everything so much easier for us.
The location is really great, a subway station is located just one block away, and there are lot of restaurants located very near to the hotel. The rooms are extremely clean and you even get bathsalt with the normal ameneties. I've been traveling around Japan for plenty of times, and this hotel was one of the better ones I've been in, if you think about the price/quality.More
