The best hotel in lalibela, with friendly staff and fantastic scenery. Be it watching the sun set, the stars at night or the breath taking misty scenery early morning, the hotel is ideal for urban fatigued holiday makers

Nice hotel near downtown Lalibela with lovely views over surrounding valley. 3-4 star max, but "adjusted" for area. Do not think there are any hotels in the area, seriously, that are any better. Lalibela is very rural! Bathroom adequate. Restaurant very good.

Positives: the staff at Mountain View Hotel was very friendly, the room was quite clean, and the views are stunning. Negatives: the bed was very uncomfortable and a foam mattress would have been much preferred. We purchased a package deal through the hotel's owner (lodging, transport, meals, tickets, etc...) and realized later that we were substantially overcharged when seeing the... More

On our tour of this fascinating and beautiful country we stayed two nights at the Mountain View Hotel in Lalibela. First of all our positive impressions: The view is fantastic, the hotel building very beautiful and decorated with a lot of taste, the rooms are quite ok eventhough not up to the standards that you can expect for this price...

The views from this hotel are amazing. The room was basic but fine. The staff were helpful. The breakfast was quite good; the other meals were not very interesting. I couldn't get WIFI in my room, but it was fine in the lobby.

A dramatic location and a handsome and servicable hotel. The bed was firm, the television in the lobby large-screen, the wi-fi acceptable. A stoat or its Ethiopian equivalent came to visit my patio. One fault was the dining room, which is quite depressingly lit at dinnertime (though lovely in daytime), and the dinner was average (though the breakfast delightful). As... More

The rooms were very nice, clean and modern with some nice additions like an WIFI. The WiFi is fast enough, reachable in my room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We found the location ideal. The negative point for us was the breakfast time. The service was also a bit slow. Overall, we had a nice stay at Mountain... More

3 stars that may be 4! Very good looking building, from outside and inside, and extremely pleasant stay: the room was quite comfortable. Toilet and bath clean. We had breakfast at the hotel and it was excellent. Also the position is very convenient for rest. I got low season discount for this place and the prices seemed reasonable with the... More
