This hotel is located outside the small town of Lalibela. The building is very well designed so every room offers great views of the monuments, mesas, buttes and spire rocks. The facilities are simple but comfortable. Rooms are well-appointed and average size with spacious bathrooms. Beds are comfortable. Wi-Fi signal in the room was very good. All rooms have balconies...

We really enjoyed this hotel! The room was very clean, and we had a beautiful view from our balcony. It was a very relaxing location, the hotel was quiet -- and the food was quite good. We were also set up with a wonderful guide through the hotel -- Andy. We would highly recommend both Andy and the hotel if... More

The spectacular views alone would justify a stay in the Mountain View Hotel but the added bonus of good food at a reasonable price, comfortable rooms and helpful staff make it a wonderful antedote to the challenges that travelling in Ethiopia can present. You can nearly become immune to being charged extra just because you are a foreigner so it... More

What a wonderful place! The rooms are comfortable and very clean. Big bathroom with everything you need to refresh after visiting the churches. However, the best is the breath-taking view from the terrace! You can even enjoy this amazing panoramic when laying on your bed. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant has a nice food to offer. I... More

This hotel is located on top of a cliff with a stunning view, seen in every room. Like in most of Ethiopia room is very basic, but very spacious, clean and comfortable. We came through low season and received a discount. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

The room was simple, but clean and sufficient. The view from the room was magnificent. The food was delicious and we had every meal at the hotel. The staff was always available to... More

The view is great!! Lovely evenings on the terrace, silent nights, good food, kind staff, clean rooms - one of the best experiences in Ethiopia! After visiting amazing sites in Lalibela, this is what you really need.

I arrived to a peaceful retreat wide open spaces and towering ceilings Check -in was fast , welcomed with fresh squeezed orange juice. My bags were taken to my room which was quite spacious with a stunning view of rugged mountains in the horizon. I could spend all day gazing at the view. No phones or TV to distract you,... More

After having endured the Yeha Hotel in Axum, we were ready for another frightful experience. Surprisingly, this hotel turned out to be quite good. Although not 4 star as the rating would suggest, it had lots of good features and was probably the best in Lalibela. As other reviewers have said, the views from the hotel are magnificent as well...

We stayed 2 nights during our trip through Ethiopia. Nice and clean rooms. Good food, friendly people and good wifi in the restaurant area. But the most impressive was the view from the hotel. Second picture is the hotel seen from the Ben Abebe restaurant.
