Clean, spacious rooms based on the traditional local round huts that overlook the center of town and the rock-hewn churches (I could see the top of St George’s from my downstairs room). The grounds are lovely. However, the wifi didn’t work, at least in room 20, and it only occasionally worked at the restaurant. The food lacked variety and was... More

The rooms are comfortable, the location good, the staff friendly. No internet in the rooms, only in the public area . the restaurant is somewhat basic. Nothing grand here, but quite acceptable for Lalibela. No opinion on prices, as this stay was integrated in a larger safari package.

The rooms in this beautiful hotel are large and, for a change in Ethiopia, they are well maintained. In the large bathroom, the shower was great. The decorations are traditional, and still modern. The breakfast and traditional food in the restaurant are excellent. The staff was helpful and friendly. The hotel is in walking distance to the main attraction in... More

Beautiful large rooms set among the trees. The area is quiet and peaceful at night, and the bed was comfortable so I enjoyed great sleep. The shower was the best I had in Ethiopia with instant warm water. The room and bathroom was very clean and decor very warm, giving a relaxed peaceful atmosphere. It was also nice to sit... More

A nice place to stay in Lalibela. The manager was very helpful, rooms large and quiet. This hotel (together with Lodge du Chateu in Gondar) offers the best postcards available in Ethiopia. You even get 2 for free!

I was skeptical about staying somewhere a bit pricey as I'm used to roughing it in Africa, but this was a family holiday and a nice excuse to experience the other side! Tukul consists of several luxury two storey huts set out in gorgeous gardens at a quiet end of town - a bit further from the churches if that's... More

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
