Build like an Ethiopian village. large and nice rooms. Comfortable beds. Very good service . The dinner (buffet) is excelent but breakfast very basic. don't count on Wi-Fi in that hotel (Generaly, in Ethiopia). No TV at room, but we liked it that way!

Spent two nights in #20. This was the most modern hotel I stayed at in Ethiopia (except for in Addis). Really lovely room with a patio. Not a super view but there are some birds to watch in the trees. There is wifi at reception; the password is written on the board. Plenty of hot water. The mattress feels like... More

It was really as described on Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet, best room in town, and nicely located. Churches were all at walking distance. Nice restaurants at Bajaj (tuktuk) distance, tukulhotel organize it, for less than $10, it takes you and come back to pick you. I'll surely go back to same hotel when I'll go back, I understand that... More

To start out, let me say I'm basing my hotel reviews for Ethiopia on world standards, not local standards. Tukul Village certainly merits four stars either way. The rooms are charming with tasteful local handicraft furnishings, comfortable beds and reliable hot water. The views across the valley are wonderful. The staff was consistently pleasant and attentive (forget what it says... More

This is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are semi-circular and have panoramic views. The decoration is local - weaving, dark wood, textiles - and we thought lovely. Bathrooms were fine with loads of hot water. The reception area is pretty low key, but you can use a computer, get your laundry done and get assistance. There's a nice... More

We moved from another local hotel to this one based on other trip adviser reviews. When we first arrived reception was very basic looking and we were that we had made a terrible choice. However once we were shown to our rooms we were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation is in little round houses. They have a front door leading into... More

Supposed to be the nicest in Lalibela. Since we only stayed here, I am not sure to compare. But, it was fantastic. Great welcome at the airport, then transport to the hotel, which is about 30 minutes away. It is in the center of the area of Churches and quite close to most things in town. Very large, clean room,... More

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
