Perfect for a stay in Lalileba - lovely large, clean rooms, with balcony. Large bathroom with good shower and plenty of hot water. Wi-fi worked in my room as well which was a bonus. Can sit in the outside reception area for a drink/coffee after a day of trekking. Breakfast was good, and I could not have asked for more.... More

Tukul is well situated near the churches. The rooms are, as others have mentioned, quite large and nicely appointed. Second floor accommodations have views of the town and mountains. Restaurant is fine - nothing special, but fine. Wi-fi was advertised as being only in the lobby area but it worked in our room. Reception area is a little off-putting (a... More

We spent one night and enjoyed our stay significantly. Rooms were very large with a comfortable bed and individual hot water heaters in each bathroom. Cleanliness was perfect. We did not eat at the restaurant, though we did have drinks on the terrace. Breakfast was included and there were several options. Service was attentive and speedy. Wi-fi doesn't really work...

AS you travel through Ethiopia, and visit the cities outside of Addis Ababa, you will come to Lalibela. The reason to come to Lalibela is to visit the Ethiopian Churches carved out of rock. But, that it is another story. Nevertheless, you must stay somewhere, and Tukul Village is perfect. The rooms are large, clean, and close to a lovely... More

When coming to Lalibela from the Airport you can't but notice the newly built cottages for the local people and you start thinking how finally you've come to a place where the locals participate in the money from tourism...well, when you hear a lot of them have been moved from the surroundings of the churches the picture slightly changes, but...

The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated plus mine had a stunning view. The beds are very comfortable, plus a large bathroom with plenty of hot water! The grounds are lovely and well maintained. Perfect location. Staff is helpful and friendly. We used the hotel transport to and from the airport. Highly recommend. All bank machines and ATMs were out... More

Relaxed and charming, with pretty courtyard bar area and a reasonable restaurant. Helpful staff and an airport shuttle service (for 70 EB each). Rooms were spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable - and everything worked well, including the shower. Not far from the churches. Breakfasts were good and on the one evening we chose to eat in it was a buffet... More

I thought the rooms were very comfortable. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water. Well maintained property. I recommend that you order Ethiopian food if you eat at the restaurant there--it was solid. The staff did their best to be helpful. Highly recommend.
