Stayed here for two nights during our visit to Labelia. Very clean with excellent shower and good sized bathroom. We took a second floor room which had a fine view. Food was OK (but then people don't travel to Labelia for culinary reasons!). The village market is well worth a visit if you are there on a Saturday.

Nicely decorated, spacious room and bath room. Highlight was the nearby Saint Mary Festival (May 9) at the Rock hewn church area- amazing! Great birding on hotel grounds as well. Water or water heater made some noise. Good power and hot water. Elevation: 8025'. Good food but service is slow. Bring earplugs for the religious chanting. Light in entryway is... More

Rooms are clean, nicely decorated and have a fantastic view. The location of the hotel is pefect. The only point for improvement is the food which is uninspired and sometimes even tasteless (especially the soups).

This place is great value for money! During the low season (I visited in late May 2012) beautiful, spacious rooms overlooking the ancient rock-carved churches can be gotten for USD 40/night, including breakfast. We were told this was a reduced price, and it's definitely less then adverstised in Lonely Planet, so it seems worth it to negotiate the price on... More

Tukul Village did not disappoint in any area. You will be greeted by the charming Mel at the front desk and then be lead to the most beautiful flower covered staircase to your room. I suggest you ask for a second floor room. We had room 19 and the view was amazing. The sites of the churches can be seen... More

The accommodation at Tukul Village is fantastic. The rooms are spacious, everything seems new and if you're on the top level, you have a view of the area which is well worth it. On the top level, you have a nice balcony and there are floor-to-ceiling windows allowing you to take in the nice view from the bed. The wifi... More

I agree with the other reviewers. I really enjoyed my stay here and found it to be a well-run hotel with pleasant surroundings. The hotel even arranged for the glasses that I left in the room to be sent back to me.

Your tukul is definitely in another league from the locals but nicely and thoughtfully done. It's smaller size makes it nicer than the neighboring Lal Hotel. The food was only average and a bit on the costly side. The service was above average. Internet access was only adjacent to the lobby. After seeing its competition, it remains the place I... More

Rooms of this hotel are decorated with ethnic motifs which creates a nice and cozy ambiance. Honest restaurant. Wonderful surroundings : the incredible Lalibela's rock-hen churches, one of the most incredible and marvelous things I've ever seen around the world.
