Although It is written breakfast included but indeed not inclided. 15 Egypt Pound will be added.
Luxor can truly drain the enthusiasm from even the most hardened travelers. Maghdy & Mohamed (his eldest son) were gracious & went above & beyond. A reprieve from the pushy, arrogant scam touts that roam Luxor w/ it\'s brash, dusty streets; Fontana was an oasis. Maghdy aided with well priced tours, advice & eating reccos. Bottom line, we felt that Fontana truly cared for it\'s guests, were appreciative for the business; even walked to the train station to greet us and walk us back. Shukran.
Mr. Magdy and his son, Mahmoud, were extremely helpful throughout our stay and the rest of the staff was friendly as well. This was my third time over 16 years staying at Fontana and while the neighborhood gives a rough first impression, one soon realizes that the people are warm and decent. Probably the single greatest thing about our stay was being able to return to the A/C in our room every afternoon as Luxor was HOT by midday. Thank you to everyone at Fontana for making us feel at home.
The manager is quite nice as he helped me to get my train ticket. Mais la quqlite de l'hotel est assez sommaire.

The whole hotel is clean, bright and tidy. It hides itself in a an alley so the noise from the Main street could be avoided. Water is hot and big. Internet is fast but no wifi. The owner is helpful but pushy, his son, Mahmoud Magdy, is talkative and also helpful with good attitude. Thanks for his recommended restaurant, good and cheap. Hotel's hardware is definitely good, and the staff are nice too (be in doubt when owner says \"the price will be higher tomorrow\" or something like tha
the staff was very friendly and helpful. the location is good. 10 minutes walk from the train station and 2 minutes walk to the main street. the room was clean and the price is more than good. we rented some bikes and the price for them was okay. in opposite to other hostels they didn't try to force us to buy a trip. they just offered a trip. they informed us which things we should do on ourselves and were very helpful in these things.
Very good place to stay, all the staff are very kind and helpful people but avoid to buy there the trip to the Valley of the kings and Valley of the queens, it's much cheaper elsewhere.
clean and basic. Will satisfy the average backpacker`s requirements. Manager was helpful to answer all enquiries and to arrange for trips to Valley of the Kings. Overall pleasant stay.
