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...

Stayed here for a few nights in January. The rooms were very clean and comfortable beds at a rate I found very cheap. Did many tours no problems with staff or security. The breakfast were plentiful and all rooms have air conditioning that works. Wi-Fi is free and works well. Thank you to the cleaning staff and breakfast staff all... More

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.

Hey friends, Naim here. I have been to Luxor in the month of June and stayed at Hotel Fontana. I really like to say that the hotel is good enough to make your stay comfortable in comparing with other hotels around. The charge was reasonable. The hospitality of hotel stuffs are also mentionable. They also offer package tour to different... More

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

Mr. Magdi, the owner, has obviously been around. He's very helpful, courteous, but as in most of the other reviews, the almighty $$ rules everything. He offered the price we were looking for, not wanting breakfast, but then tried to up the rate by breakfast suddenly included for only 20LE more. We refused. I found his bicycle rentals, tours, and... More

I spent around eight days at Fontana Hotel and was very happy, secure and comfortable. The location is great, mid-way between the Nile and the train station, with plenty of good restaurants nearby, and I liked the friendly neighbourhood. Mr Magdi and his family were all very helpful and made me feel welcome. I found the mix of guests, both... More
