"they did not honor my reservation as it was made"
The hotel receptionist did not provided a room as reserved and provided a room way cheaper than what was reserved. Recetionoist very unpolite. Very bad time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"BEST HOTEL VALUE IN MEXICO CITY"
Hotel Fontan is the best hotel value in Mexico City. The location is perfect to use public transportation ( buses and metro). The staff is always very helpful. The restaurant is excellent and the breakfast buffet cannot be better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and convenient"
The Fontan has a great location to set up base camp when traveling to Mexico City. The staff is courteous, but a little stressed and undertrained. The check-in process is slow and could be improved with some pre-planning, but this is something that hasn't changed in the past 2-3 years that I've stayed at this hotel and don't expect it to change in the […] near future. The rooms are clean and have A/C. The beds are hard, but after a long day of pounding the pavement around town, you don't really notice or care. Remotes for the TV are kept at the front desk so make sure to ask for it upon arrival or you'll be making another trip back down to the lobby. However, you can't beat the location with access to transportation as soon as you walk out the front door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible Customer Service"
I called the hotel at least 10 times to confirm my reservations, each time I called I got hung up on, only once did they transferred me to the front desk only to be told that they couldn't find my reservation, when I told them I had made the reservation online they transferred me to someone else only to have that person hang up on me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel in downtown city"
I was for two nights.Comfortable rooms and good location. Ideal for short stay in DFGenuine Expedia guest review
"The facilities are terrible!!!"
Do not trust in the pictures of the website. The facilities and condition of the hotel are negatives! The personnel are very nice but it is not enough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to downtown"
The hotel was what was expected of a budget hotel. The rooms were clean although the fixtures and carpeting old and worn. The staff was not friendly did the minimum. When leaving one day for business with a large bag we were almost accosted by the staff demanding paperwork to be able to leave the property although we explained we still had several days […] still prepaid.

"Not a very nice hotel"
I was not very impressed with this hotel. I booked a king and got two singles, the carpet in the hall way was torn and the door to the room didn't open the whole way. Luckily I only stayed one night at this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are very chip furniture to They ofer wi fi in every room And is no true Wi fi is avalaible only in the Restaurant and the service is very PoorGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for the price- spend lots of time discovering"
This was our 2nd stay at this hotel. Juan and Alfredo in the restaurant are the only friendly people on the staff--- everyone else makes you feel like you are annoying them- whether it be checking in or checking out- or making a request for a tv control. They are remodeling the hotel and it looks like the rooms are quite a bit nicer. Honestly for the […] price- that include the breakfast Buffett- you can't beat it- especially since the only thing we ever do is sleep there since there is so much to see Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Recommended Hotel for budget price"
The hotel has an excellent location with easy access to both MetroBus and the Metro and is right on the Paseo de la Reforma for interesting walks. It is not too far from the Zona Rosa, perhaps a 15 or 20 minute walk. The hotel itself has a very nicely done lobby. My room was comfortable, an excellent bed, and a strong shower with lots of hot water. […] Very nice staff at the reception desk. The only drawback is that if you get a room facing the Reforma, there is quite a bit of traffic noise. I used the fan of the air conditioner to help mask some noise. I noticed that some rooms are being renovated and these may be quieter, you might want to ask for one of these rooms when making a reservation. And the buffet breakfast was excellent with omelettes made to order and lots to choose from. All in all, a very nice hotel for a budget price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent location close to main sites in the city"
The services provided by the staff (bell boy/front desk/security/maintenance) was excellent. Staff was supportive and gracious in attending the needs of my group. The breakfast buffet was great with a variety of Mexican, american dishes that satisfies the likes and diets needs of any person. The staff assigned to the restaurant (cooks/waiters/chef) […] were very friendly and applied to meet the needs to the satisfaction of the guest. A very good option for anybody interested in staying at a place close to all the sites and amenities within the downtown area (Traditional Colonial Section) of Mexico City.

"Nice - budget hotel"
Excellent location for getting around the city. Located in the Reforma Avenue, just in from of "el caballito", walking distance to the historic center of the city: Bellas Artes Palace, Zocalo, etc. Then if you walk through Reforma you will find the Independence Angel. There is a Metro Station just 20 steps from the hotel. The breakfast "all you can […] eat" buffet is excellent, with a variety of delicious local dishes, and the more traditional breakfast food (eggs, pancakes, toast, etc).

"GOOD FOR THE PRICE WE PAID"
the hotel was ok, the rooms really small, the service at the room was great, they change towels, and everything, and cleaned the room every day, so it was great in an overall, the staff helpfull. so for the proce is ok, the only thing the remote contro didn't work, of course doesnt bother me, so i didnt complain, the breakfast bufett they have was great […] and a nice price, the view of the restaurant was great as well, an the location was great.

"Center location at good price"
Location is great. Next to Alameda park and 10 min walk to Zokala. Free parking, though it was tough to get to hotel entrance because it is on a lateral, and other streets around were one way. Our room was facing Paseo de la Reforma and was noisy due to old fashion single layer wiindow glass but at the same time it was a great view. Room was spacy and […] overall fits to 3star hotel. I recommend this hotel to those who wants perfect center location at a resonable price with minor comfort restriction. The hotel is totally worth the money you pay.

"For the price it was ok"
I guess the old saying "you get what you pay for" always applies. As many other reviewers mention, the internet is indeed "free" however, just hope it's working when you are upstairs eating breakfast. Our first morning it was not and we had to go find internet else where to catch up on business before enjoying our days there. The staff at the restaurant […] for the most part is very nice. However, there is one older waiter who is NOT even close! Our first morning at breakfast we felt like invaders that shouldn't even be there... the 2nd morning was a much better experience. As for room cleanliness. There was an AWFUL smell coming from the bathroom. By keeping the door closed, we were able to keep it down in the main room part, however, it would knock us over every time we went to the bathroom. The first morning we reported it, also requesting that housekeeping keep the door shut when they were done. When we got back later in the afternoon we were upset to find the smell as strong as ever and the door of the bathroom wide open. Also, I found pubic hairs around the sink faucet in the bathroom and the bathroom ceiling in the shower was falling down. All of these things were also reported to the hotel upon departure.

"Great location, but that's about it"
They claim they have wifi. But only in the lobby and diner floor. They do have wired internet in the rooms, but it's very spotty. So, plan on depending on this internet. Staff are not empowered to help you. I arrived early in the morning, but they won't move you into the room until at least 1PM. I ran into someone with the same problem. If you are […] making the reservation thru Expedia or similar service, call the hotel directly to make sure they have received your reservation.

"no frills, budget stay"
location is good, very near metro. that is the biggest plus of the hotel. room is clean. a lot of street noise but price is low. good for budget conscience and those not picky.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A nice hotel with Jacuzzi in México City Downtown"
The only thing is that the bathroom had some hair when we arrived. So it was not cleaned well. Other than that it was a pleasant stay. The hotel is very close to Palacio de Bellas Artes and 3 metro stations away from the Zocalo.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent budget hotel"
For the price, I am extremely pleased with this hotel. If you want to nitpick, there will be plenty with which to do that, but I'm interested in visiting the city and having a decent place to crash. There is a park near by so I could hear the band playing and people enjoying themselves but it didn't bother me. Not a hotel for people who like to complain.

"Hotel fontan needs just a bit more loving from its"
Stayed here for a few nights with my gf, had to wait 3 hours the first night for room service and they still asked me to pay.The room service was much better the following few nights but that was no excuse for how things felt the first night, luckily they had a cool server. The surrounding area is poverty-stricken, and we literally almost got robbed […] less than 100 ft away from the hotel near the Sanborns. Furthermore the room's floor was unclean, black soot could be found on your feet if walking barefoot in the room. Luckily the room is updated and one could relax if you can ignore the above listed problems, at times it felt like hotel staff reacted as if they were "doing you a favor" on your requests despite advertising itself as a hotel that prides itself in service.

"The center of Mexico City"
We booked this hotel for a Marta Sanchez concert in DF about 40 min drive to the palacio de los deportes (because of traffic) was walking distance to el palacios de Bellas Artes , 5 min drive to Mexico Citys iconic Angel & El Zocalo , about 20 minutes from The Basilica of our lady of Guadalupe, 10 min from the Zona Rosa the time is because of traffic. […] As far as the hotel You have to be close to the windows to pick up the wifi on second floor. Great views of the city on the 11th floor where they have the restaurant and 10 floor where gym and jacuzzi is located. Clean rooms but cleaning ladies dont respect thr DO NOT DISTURB Sign. Free parking the Bell boys park and pick up your car in late hours of the night. other than thatWill stay here again next time in Mexico City Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is okay.... Good location. In front of bus stop and subway station. AC works like a fan not an actual AC. Beds are not very comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to tourist sites, but not after 7PM"
Stayed here for 4 days and it was basically just a place to sleep. WiFi only available in lobby and staff was not the most friendly. Very noisy even though we were not facing Paseo de la Reforma and on 5th floor. Expect honks, shouting and everything else from 6am-11PM. Bar and Jacuzzi on 11 floor, which we never used.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Excellent staff. They were very friendly and answered all of my questions and concerns. They have their own driving service to use rather than taxis. Quite nice. The rooms are not 5 star but are very adequate and very clean. The restaurant on the 10th floor has great views and good food too. Finally the location is perfect!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wi-fi works in lobby but not on upper floors."
Have stayed here several times. Beds are always comfy and the rooms usually have a good view over Reforma. Street noise can be a nuisance sometimes, and on this visit my bathroom had a sewage smell coming from the drain. This has never happened before despite several visits.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Less to be Desired"
- lacking oxygen in the room - noisy - small - door locks were not good - taps hard to use without creating spills - room service does not take credit cards/charge to the roomGenuine Expedia guest review

Best regards.
"Too high expectations for a budget hotel"
The nice areas of the hotel were the lobby and restaurant. The bedrooms and upper floors were dreary and in dire need of proper lighting and upgrading. However, the hotel is meant to cater to domestic budget travelers and cost-sensitive Europeans. The location is good in the day time for walking to the historic core and its sights, but at night if offers […] very little. One plus is that the Hidalgo metro station stops at its doorstep. For the same price, I would rather stay at the San Marino Suites in the Pink Zone. The rooms are much nicer as its the neighborhood. I only stayed in this property because I traveled with a group. The buffet breakfast was a hit and miss -- mostly misses. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It is a very good hotel.Staff some know English some dont.There is no A/C in room it is only ventiletion.So if you want a/c this hotel is not for you.Location is very good.Very safe.Resonable rate.They pay very low money transfer rate.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Fontan Reforma Mexico Thank you for considering us good option, our rooms are equipped with A/C, however do not have heating, take into account this comment in order to assess whether it is necessary to put it since in the city of Mexico, it uses very little due to different climate changes. The area where the Hotel is located is very safe and close to many tourist sites, inside the Hotel is currency exchange however close there are many money exchange with different exchange rates. I reiterate my thanks and please be assured that we are working to avoid these details and our customers have a very pleasant stay.
"Fontan Mexico City"
The hotel has gone through some remodeling and it shows. I have stayed here every time I travel to Mexico City which is about once a year or so. The staff especially bellboys and room service personal are very eager to help and make you feel comfortable. In speaking with one of the bellboys he mentioned that the recent earthquake activity did some damage […] to some of the remodeled rooms and I could see some evidence in the room I stayed in, the window had moved from it's frame about a third of an inch. If all you need is a place to rest at night that includes a good breakfast in the morning at a great price then look no further than Hotel Fontan in Mexico City. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Fontan Reforma Mexico Before that nothing receives a warm greeting from the Fontan team, I very much appreciate your comments since they allow us to identify our opportunities for improvement, in fact on the damage that caused the last earthquake already are corrected.

"Old Hotel but good price and great location"
Good price for the type of hotel, old hotel but great location. The staff is very friendly although not very flexible.... I arrived to the hotel without the printed reservation , and although they had my name and the number of guests, and I showed her my confirmation number , they made me turn on my computer, log in and print the confirmation from expedia […] , without that they wouldn't let me check in... another guest arrived when I was checking out at 1:00 pm, and the front dest told them they could not give them a room until 3 pm.... she did not even checked if she already had rooms clean and available.... just check in is at 3 pm so you wait until 3 pm, after long trip if a guest arrives early and if you have a room available.... why not??? I wonder.... Understanble if rooms are not available the guest should know that the waiting time was advised ..but just because check in is at 3.. you have to wait until 3......the rule is a rule!!!!!!! FRONT DESK SHOULD BE A LITTLE MORE ACCOMMODATING ...THE REST OF THE STAFF VERY FLEXIBLE AND FRIENDLY.. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Fontan Reforma Mexico This comment before that nothing I am grateful that allows us to know his impressions about our services and attention, are opportunities to improve and ensure that all our clients have a pleasant stay, with regard to the location is absolutely right we are close to the downtown area and many tourist attractions, with regard to staff the Front Desk in effect for power we deliver the room and make the reservation valid is essential you have your confirmation print or as well explains you asked forwarded us our e-mail confirmation and we print, you must know you are security measures that far from trying to generate a nuisance you are looking for is the security of you which is for us the more important, in fact also requested an official identification. With reference to the timetable of entry we have established that is at 3: 00 pm and if we have the room available in the moment you arrive to the hotel customer delivers the room at that moment without any additional charge, is important to mention that sometimes this situation generate us discomfort as clients, however you must take into account the departure time of the rooms is at 1: 00 pm, in such a way that the time we have is two hours pair to verify that the room is in perfect condition to return to deal, is worth mentioning that in our Web site is published check-in-check-out time. I reiterate my thanks and please be assured that we are working to avoid these details and explain to our client the why to request confirmation or itinerary which is very important. I hope to see very soon...
Centrally located, huge queen bed. Some street noise if you have a low or street-facing room, but I'd stay there again. Downstairs restaurant serves great dinners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
