“oh my god - glad I got out alive!!! frightening experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2010

having to find somewhere to stay due to cancelled flight we duly consulted the lonely planet which described the fontana as kitsch - understatement of the century!! convinced this is cairo's main knocking shop - having got past the unshaven unkempt goat hearders on reception we were shown 2 rooms the1st was grim in a fluffy manner ( although who's to say what was living in all those furry bed clothes?!) but clean... the 2nd - we had to go via a second staircase past a very dodgy looking 'discotheque' where men lurked in every shadow and in a 2nd lift - gold lame and mirrors!!! to a corridor where the rooms had padded gold upholstery on the outside ..... that was enough for us a very hasty exit !!!! didn't begin to entertain the idea of the roof pool god only knows what we would have found there - avoid at all costs
