- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Established in 1963, Atelefunge is simply ANTIQUE and AFFORDABLE!! Atelefugne is composed of a local bar, a traditional restaurant and 23 rooms. Most of the rooms share a bath and there are some rooms with en-suites. Atelefugne is a work in progress and we are constantly making improvements on the 50 year old property. Atelefugne is not a four star, it's not a three star, it's not even a zero star but a well-liked, local, budget hostel. It's not a high rise, it's not even a mid-rise, it’s a mini-ramp rise. It's not fancy but you will be pleasantly surprised! Atelefugne is located in Kera, Bulgaria area. Long ago, the Bulgarian Embassy was around the corner, consequently, the surrounding area is known as Bulgaria. If you Google map Atelefugne, it is number 418, Tanzania Street. Distance from the airport is about 7 kms. Atelefugne has a traditional restaurant (no hamburger or pizza) that proudly serves mouth-watering meals. The most popular is the spicy Yebeg wot (lamb stew) among many meat dishes and Beyayenetu (veggie combo) on Orthodox fasting days (which are Wednesdays and Fridays). Tegabino (pureed cheakpeas) is excellent and always available. All meals are served with Ethiopian flat bread, injera, unique to Ethiopia but known around the world.Atelefugne has at its centre, a casual but friendly bar where many local beers are served - the most popular being St George, followed by Dashen. But there is also Harar, Bedele and Meta. Also served are local wines, variety of local gins as well as many of your favorite soft drinks. The bar is an easy-going place where foreigners can mix with Ethiopians of all stripes. Free wi-fi is available in the bar, terrace and rooms.Atelefugne has clean rooms with a full bed in smaller rooms and queen-sized bed in the larger ones. Rooms are decorated with traditional bedcovers, curtains, and local paintings. The original wooden floors and interesting wooden chairs and cabinets make the space warm and comfortable. Atelefugne provides toiletries. Please note: Atelefugne does not provide two beds in a room or extra beds for children. Once you get a key to your room, it is yours until you leave. No one will enter it unless you request cleanup. The room will be cleaned in your presence or if you feel comfortable, leave your key with management.Atelefugne is a nice local hostel and although we do not provide airport pickup, we would be happy to arrange one for you. Airport taxis are also readily available. Please be aware that although the owner and some of the staff are fluent English speakers, a little patience with those that only speak Amharic would be greatly appreciated.Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to be of service to you. ... more less
