Beautiful tukuls in fantastic garden. Airy rooms and big bathrooms. Hot water available 24 hours. From my balcony, on the first ( and last) floor I enjoyed fantastic view on St. Georges church. From garden - amazing view on mountains. The best restaurant in Lalibela with great Ethiopian wine ! Nice people. As whole hotel has 24 room, athmosphere is... More

Tukul Village consists of a number of thatched rondavels nestled in bougainvillea offering high levels of comfort. The rooms are spacious and decorated in local materials. The overall appearance is pleasing. The beds are comfortable though the mattresses are oddly squashy, almost like water beds, and not to everyone's liking. The rondavels have large balconies offering far reaching views (from... More

Tukul Village is located within walking distance from both clusters of the churches. The manager was extremely helpful with arranging transport and guides. The rooms (traditional style tukuls) were nicely furnished and the showers were the best showers in Ethiopia (no exaggeration). Lots of space for our toddler to run around and a good base for exploring Lalibela. The food... More

Pros: - Great view! - Comfortable spacious rooms - Accommodating staff. The main manager was a serious guy, but efficient, and got our plans arranged which is all we needed. Also set us up with a passionate guide who was always enthusiastic, church after similar church. - it's also walking distance to the churches and market (although you'll be huffing... More

We were dissapointed with Tukul Village for the following reasons. The reception organised our guide for a visit to the churches, they quoted us 600birr for two evening visits and one morning visit, but the guide said the price would be 800birr which we were then forced to pay so they had misquoted without checking first. The food was also... More

Have a look at the latest photos ; the shrubs have grown and the place looks like a botanical garden ! The rooms are great and the view from the rooms on the 2nd floor is quite interesting . It is very quiet in the ''Village'' even if the main building is located on one of the major streets of... More

The gardens and rooms are wonderful. The meals, just "ok". However luckily the Cultural Center down the street serves some of the best food in this part of Ethiopia at great prices - so the combination is perfect,

We had a very pleasant stay here, our room was on the ground floor of one of the Tukuls and as a result very dark and rather disappointing. The bathrooms are enormous. The grounds are beautifully lush and pleasant to sit out in. The dining room is rather basic, as is the outside area where you can have a drink.... More

We stayed here recently and although the room itself was very pleasant we found the staff not very welcoming or helpful. Coffee was very expensive and breakfast the most limited we experienced in Ethiopia. The outdoor sitting space comsisted of a few tables and chairs , and a small covered area where the television played old European football matches; none... More
