We stayed there for 3 nights, just when redecorating was going on, but did not affect our stay at all. We had spacious and very clean room with big bathroom. Owner pays attention to detail (towels/stand for drying clothes in the room, welcome drinks upon arrival, perfect signal for wifi) and looks after the place. He is very helpful and... More

1. The owner will charge you what ever he thinks he can get away with. No prices are displayed, and he is likely to try and ask where you stayed previously to get an idea of what he can charge you. You would be crazy to accept any of his tours or offers - they are awfully overpriced. 2. My... More

I'm genuinely shocked to see so many negative reviews. We found the Fontana a solid value with a super family running the place. Checked in almost at sunrise and the owner didn't fuss when we asked for four nights starting that day, so we got the room 6 hours early. Breakfast was ample for hot Egypt days when you need...

A good location with reasonable facilities and space, however avoid this hotel for a few reasons, the main one is that you CANNOT trust the owner or his son for a second, after talking and bartering about the agreed rate, it spiked up as he says the dorm rooms with external bathrooms were occupied then also added to the bill...

As the title says Fontana is a nice place to stay for backpackers, as long as you make sure you get backpacker rates. As mentioned in other posts the owner is extremely kind, and we tried to reward that, but he also changed the price of the room for us for the very nice breakfast which was really just average...

I'm sorry but this place did satisfy me. I stayed with my wife and it started out okay, smiling, friendly (we thought) owner who speaks English and cool rooms with working air con, but the beds were old and not very soft. BUT, as many others reviewing this hotel have said, you cannot trust the owner and staff at all.... More

This place is a budget option but the rooms are spotless, as the owner says 'I love cleaning.' The service is great, they can arrange tours, bike rentals, maps, bus tickets etc, and surprisingly for Egypt all at no commission. Rooms all have aircon and there's satelitte TV downstairs. I'd highly recommend trying this one out.

The hotel is clean, the facilities basic, but if you are out most of the day, it is surely enough. A basic breakfast was included in the price I paid, around $12 US per night. WiFi internet is available for free in the breakfast area, in other areas the reception is not so good, as there is only one router.... More

“Avoid a room with a window onto the main street (ie the street you enter from). Very noise all through the night.”

“make sure you dont pay more than you need to, then you will adjust to the few quirks... what you get a nice clean room close to everything...not much more”

“Rooms are spacious and plenty of towels and hot water to go around. Breakfasts are excellent rooms at back see the sunrise and warmer than front rooms in winter.”

“Rooms at the back get the afternoon winter sun, very good. In summer, probably the front is cooler and better.”
