Booked Fontana seeing it being rated #1. Never regret it! Beautiful room, complimentary mini bar plus great breakfast and we'll equipped gym. Only down side it's not near kuta main area and nearby has no nice places. But still if u r on a budget and want a beautiful hotel. Choose Fontana!

Dear Arnold H,

warm greetings from Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Thank you for your time putting a good comment on Fontana Hotel Bali. I am happy that you were enjoying your stay with us.
Actually, we are not that far from Kuta. Yes, we are not in a walking distance to Kuta area, but we provide hourly shuttle (drop off and pick up) service to that area. Just contact Front Desk for the arrangement.

For your next visit to Bali, please check our website for more information and I am looking forward welcoming you back to Bali.

Really nice hotel, really modern and clean. Buffet breakfast was average, pool rarely got sun, wifi doesnt work well inside rooms, have to sit out on the corridors for good reception. Balcony small with no table or chair & overall room size is average, but very nice bathrooms. The location was out of the way of main Kuta and taxi drivers did not recognise where Fontana Hotel was as its brand new. Staff nice & helpful :) Probably would stay here again as the price is very affordable.

Dear Catherine W,

cheers from Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Thank you for your time reviewing us during your stay in July 2013.
There are lots of changes happening from July 2013 until today, especially the internet connection. We have fast internet and easy access throughout the hotel premises to allow our guests to connect easily.

In July 2013, we were just 7 months old establishment that, automatically, was not really well known. But, I assure you that now, every taxi drivers know us well.

Once again, thank you for your comments. I am looking forward welcoming you back to Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Sincerely yours,

Andreas LALENOH

We visited Bali to spend time during our son's holiday. We just visited Bali 3 months before with bigger group and this time only 3 of us.

We chose this hotel since my wife went to their spa on previous visit. She impressed with the place since it's relatively new, so we decided to try the hotel for our visit. Our concern at the time was the location since it's relatively far away from the beach area that normally we would like to have when we visit Bali. But since we plan to rent a car during our holiday, then we decided to try this hotel.

After we arrive in the airport ~ 8pm, we took taxi to the hotel. The taxi driver knew the place, so we can be at the hotel in 15 min (time could be difference depend on the time of the day). It's relatively close since it's near to main road (Sunset Blvd) prior to go to Kuta center. The only problem, the sign it's not too clear so our driver missed the turn.

We checked in relatively fast, and the receptionist is helpful. Our room was quite far, but it's still ok. The room itself is not too big, but enough for 3 of us. We can add 1 extra bed, but we decided not to take it. Our room is facing the pool, so it's quite nice view. The bathroom is good, clean and tidy, no bathtub only shower. The hotel size is not big (not sure how many rooms) so we can easily go the swimming pool. They have restaurant, and we just tried their daily breakfast buffet since part of our deal. Breakfast menu is good, enough to fill our appetite and it changes some of their menu everyday during our stay (3 days). You get special hot drink (cappuccino, espresso, etc) with this breakfast, don't forget to ask for it. Close to the hotel, you can find also some restaurant within 200-300 m.

The location of the hotel is relatively quite. It will be convenience if you have your own car (rent). The hotel has some parking space in the basement. Alternatively, you can get taxi, and as far as our experience no problem to get a taxi (ask receptionist to do it for you). Recommendation is to get Bluebird taxi. The hotel has a shuttle bus to go to Kuta center, but not that often. The distance to Kuta center is around 2-3 km only. If you need Bali's souvenir, you can go to Krisna store which close to the hotel (we walked there couple times), ask anybody from the hotel to get direction, they can show you the way to go there (from the side of the hotel).

Dear icedrag,

a very warm greetings from Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Thank you for your positive remarks on Fontana Hotel Bali, Portabella Bistro, and Suma Spa.
There are many advantages being far away from the beach: comfort, security and quite. And, you get those aspects when you are staying with us. We provide drop off and pick up shuttle service to Kuta area as well for guest conveniences.

Chef Vittorio Negri and his team have arranged daily rotation for our breakfast to ensure that our guests feel differently on breakfast menu items. Another cafe you miss actually our 24/7 Sunny16 cafe. Maybe on your next visit, you can sit there and enjoy the best coffee in town.

icedrag, I will share your comment to our team member to let them know that their efforts are rewarded.

I am looking forward welcoming you back at Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Sincerely yours,

Great small hotel.
Located a fair way from the busy areas of Kuta which is why I chose it.
The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and a reasonable size.
Even if you do not stay here their restaurant is well worth a visit.
The only fault that I would mention was the lack of chairs around the pool.

Dear expom1,

Cheers from Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

Thank you for your kind note about the Hotel. I am glad that you enjoy the surroundings and the location.
I understand the need of pool chair, especially in the nice weather like this. However, considering the size and comfort level of the pool area, the current setup - I must say - is the best one.

expom1, thank you once again, and looking forward welcoming you back to Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.

This was a superb hotel. The staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We were there for New Years Eve. the hotel threw an excellent party with superb food and lively entertainment , all the staff joined in with the guests was a really fun evening.
The only thing that we had a problem with (and this was out of the hotels control) was getting around because it was such a busy time of year the taxis were not keen to come to the hotel because of "traffic jams". They also switched off their meters and charged anywhere from 50000 to 150000 rupiahs for a 200.000 trip. I personally think the hotel could provide a better shuttle service at present it seems to go at 9, 1 and 4 every 4 hours. I think at the busier times of year such as this the shuttle should be increased.
One other suggestion for the hotel is to have perhaps more games and cards available we experienced 3 torrential rain days to be expected this time of year but limited things to do in the hotel and nothing close by.
But we had a wonderful time and loved the hotel and staff :)

Dear Kaneko1,

a very warm greetings from Fontana Hotel Bali managed by Topotels.
Big thank you for spending your New Year's celebration with us. It was a fantastic party, wasn't it?

I am very sorry to hear that you were overcharged by Taxi around that time. In that time of the year, Bali Police always closed the road in Kuta Beach (and surrounding areas) from afternoon time to after midnight time to control the traffic flow. Therefore, on 31st December, The Hotel must limit the scheduled shuttle up to 1PM only to avoid caught in traffic jam.

As for the board games, we actually provide variety of board games and cards - also two computers for Internet station - at Sunny 16 Cafe located at the side of the Hotel. Sunny16 cafe is Fontana Hotel Bali 24 hours cafe.

Above of all, we are glad that you enjoy your staying with us. Please do let us know the next time you plan to come to Bali. And also, you may check regularly on our website for further promos/information.

Sincerely yours,

Andreas LALENOH

The hotel is located away from Kuta Beach, so there is peace. Little city traffic in peak season.

The ambiance of hotel is awesome. Very clean and well maintained.

We went on our honeymoon here, had booked via makemytrip. it was worth it. The rooms where nice, friendly staff. Breakfast was included. Breakfast has lot of options so make sure if you are vegetarian have lot of stuff, else its very hard to get vegetarian food in Bali.

There is spa as well, which we could not try.

The swimming pool is awesome. Well cleaned and I was surprised, it had hot water in it so you can swim in night as well. They clean it regularly. Even after rains in the evening, it was cleaned next day.

The best part here was Sunny16 Cafe. We had dinner here, It has amazing coffee. Delicious Pizzas and bread. Must try. It is open 24 hrs. So you can walk in here anytime.

The hotel has free shuttle service every hour. So, if you need to go any where they will drop you to nearest point on their route. We took Free shuttle to go Kuta beach.

Dear rahulssg,

Thank you for your memorable honeymoon time with us.

It is our intention to always make our guests' stay, like yours, memorable one. I wish you made time to visit our Suma Spa. We have honeymoon package as well at the Spa. Maybe next time you come to Bali, you can try one.

Sunny16 is becoming the talk of the town as her characteristics as 24-hours cafe with good coffee and good selections of pastries - bakeries.

Thank you for sharing your experience - especially with our shuttle - while you were staying with us. Please do let us know when you plan to visit Bali again.
