Fogera features prominently on all Gondar's travel agents' maps. For some obscure reason Lonely Planet put it in the category "Top and Mid Range" hotels.
Very nice view from the garden. That's it. Main building has not seen renovation for at laest 20 years. Breakfast: falling apart toasts, burnt eggs, no juice, no butter. Ask for pancakes, expect caked flour all over. Table cloth will come at request, ironed and creased, with crumbs from past meal and stained all over.
We stayed in bungalo.
Decided to open one of the wardrobes, it was a mistake, never closed again. Door to bathroom never closed in its lifetime. Flash in toilet did not work, bucket was provided. You fill it in, pout into the seat, and level of water on the floor increases proportiuonally. Water is always there, by the way. Bolier did not work. "Chandelier" hung from the celeing on a cable... Towels of intensive grey colour came wiht holes through which I could squeeze my head. And eventually, believe it or not, we brought lice from the place - pubic ones, to make it worse.
Manager tried to cheat us on airport transfer (150 brr vs 100 br in the market).
Oh, yes, they have restaurant, "best in town", we gave it a miss... During night, staff was heard talking vividly and giggling till late, thus disturbing our sleep. Since they were oblivious of what they were doing, we never complained.
Good thing was the whole exercise cost us USD29 for three of us........
We excaped next morning.
