The circular rooms have a lovely feel to them based on the local house style and most seem to look out over the valley pointed towards the churches. If you look closely you can see St. George's although the view is mostly dominated by the roofing compliments of UNESCO. This is probably a great place to relax but for me... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Tukul Village! The room was super cute and very spacious. But no fan or ac in the room. The food was DELICIOUS and the staff was beyond awesome! We wished we could have stayed longer. They also provided a baby bed for our son which was awesome!! Only downfall is there is... More

The lodge is extremely nice with friendly staff. The rooms are lovely and comfortable with great views of the village and from a distance (especially on Sunday when worshipers gather around the rock churches) you can see St. George Church. No television in the rooms and this makes it a great escape from the busy world.

We stayed there during our two nights stay in Lalibella. It's a great hotel, very clean, luxurious, they have HOT shower (and it's hot), never run out of electricity. Free WiFi is only available at the reception, bar, and restaurant area though, not in the room. Signal is average. The restaurant is good, offers good selection of traditional Ethiopian dishes...

Stayed 2 nights in Tukul Village in July while visiting the stone churches of Lalibela. Alex (manager) was extremely helpful when we had difficulties with booking & payment through a third party booking site. We had our 2 year old with us and the staff could not do enough for him throughout the visit. Overall a wonderful stay with lovely... More

Not only is Tukal village a gorgeous feast for the eyes from the outside with it's colorful flowers and modern Tukals (a Tukul is a round home that the people in the countryside have traditionally lived in for years, and many still do), but the inside is very romantic and comfortable. The balcony looks over the amazing views that Lalibela... More

What a delight it was to arrive at Tukul Village. After making do with charmless accommodations or places that lacked amenities or character, Tukul Village was heavenly. The huts are so cute and inside and amazing. Huge and comfortable and clean and well designed. From my hut i could see the churches and blossoming flowers were everywhere. The bathroom was... More

Stayed two nights in mid June. Heavy rains and frequent power cuts made stay in lalibela challenging but the hotel staff was efficient and friendly with decent food. Room 23 is the one. Best view, little entry way and a great shower with boiling water. The lamb tibes with tomatoe and fresh local bread was best meal.

My favorite thing about this hotel was the lush, bird-filled landscaping. The views, large clean room, and plentiful hot water with great shower were nice too. We were able to arrange transportation and tours from the hotel and the manager was very helpful.

We had a lovely 3 day stay at the Tukul Village hotel. They arranged an airport pickup for an extremely reasonable price. The room was clean, large, nicely decorated and all the top rooms have views and balconies facing Saint George church. Though admittedly all you will see is the tiny surface of the roof in the distance. If you... More
