The views from the rooms are just amazing. And the view inside is pretty good too, rooms have been fitted to a high standard (amongst the best at this price I found in Ethiopia) with particular attention focussed on the bathrooms. Staff were friendly and helpful. Someone else mentioned that the hotel is a moderate distance from the churches and... More

We were in Ethiopia for two weeks participating in a medical mission, and this was hands down the best hotel of our trip! The rating would have been a "5" if the hotel were closer to St. Giyorgis. Otherwise, wonderful! The view from our second floor room was beautiful--spectacular sunset. There were two comfortable beds, chairs with exquisite wood carvings,... More

The Cliff Edge hotel is a great place to stay for in Lalibela. Yes, there's other more expensive places near here but these rooms were very clean, the view awesome, and the hotel staff wonderful. Simple but good breakfast, things were safe in the room, close to good restaurants like the Mountain View and Ben Ababa.

Decent place with very friendly staff. View from the room was fantastic - the hills and the road going down. Limited vegetarian food options in the restaurant. Would have been great if there was a way to join two rooms to make a family room

I can't actually review the hotel as such because they totally messed up my booking. I phoned to book a month and a half before coming to lalibela, and was assured of 2 rooms at 45 usd each, with no pre-payment necessary. I phoned to confirm a month before departure and was told that actually, I would be taken to... More

Stayed here with the Family early January. I found the service excellent. The rooms were fairly basic (eg: no TV) but spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good. It had WiFi, but it was touch and go when it worked. The guy who was running the place always had a smile on his face and nothing was ever too much trouble. The... More

Stayed at the cliff edge hotel for 2 nights. I thought the rooms were great, very clean, good views and fantastic bathrooms! But its quite a walk to get to the churches (20 min uphill) and the service was not very good. For the price i thought the breakfast was really bad.

The hotel is a simple but clean establishment with friendly staff. The attached restaurant is fine for breakfast or lunch. It is easy to walk to Ben Ababa restaurant and also 15-20 minutes walking to the churches.

For us, the Cliff Edge was a welcome surprise, as we reserved from a bus travelling to Lalibela, never having seen or heard of the place. The rooms were new and clean, the bathroom was spotless, the bedding was not only comfortable, but quite pretty,and there were nice furnishings all around... And then there was the view from the balcony...... More

We ended up in the Cliff Edge Hotel by accident since the amateurish management of the Top Twelve Hotel next door was not able to correctly record our reservation (hotel was fully booked when we arrived though we had confirmed booking per phone twice). However, the Cliff Edge Hotel has great views and the rooms are clean with very modern... More
