“oh my god - glad I got out alive!!! frightening experience”
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
