Cliff edge has a lot of potential - it has a great location, very nice and helpful staff, and tastefully decorated, comfortable rooms. The bathroom was probably the best on our entire trip in Ethiopia. Our stay would have been perfect, had it not been for the construction site right in front of the hotel (to add a restaurant). The... More

The rooms and bathrooms are good and the view from the balcony nice, however the rest of the hotel is currently a building site. I was not informed of his when I booked so I would advise asking them if it is finished yet (they thought a month but looked like it would be more). In the end they gave... More

We stayed here three nights and enjoyed it greatly. The view was totally amazing, the staff helpful with great breakfasts as well. While construction was underway (and behind schedule) the hosts did their best to overcome these inconveiences. I would highly recommend staying here.

I liked staying in the hotel, it offers a lot of luxury if you are used to the basic hostels and hotels in Ethiopia. I cannot complain, the hotel was still being constructed in a way but that did not bother me. The neighborhood is not too nice and it is a longer walk to the churches, but security is... More

The view is spectacular, the bed comfy and the shower works well. The staff are very friendly and the service is great. I stayed here after learning my reservation at the Mountain view hotel could not be honoured as they were overbooked. I'm glad I did get the chance to stay at the cliff edge, sitting and enjoying the view... More

Cliff Edge is located at the top end of Lalibela near Ben Abeba and Mountain View hotel and restaurant, affording good eating opportunities and great sunset views nearby . The hotel is small but service is great and the team is really friendly. Rooms are comfortable and all have a balcony from where you can watch the sun set. The... More

This is a great hotel, with clean, spacious, quiet rooms, and AMAZING views into the valley. I loved staying here and would return without a moment's hesitation if I were to return to Lalibela. A guaranteed good choice

If you are looking for somewhere simple and friendly to stay in Lalibela, this is the place for you. We stayed three nights in a comfortable room with great views. Our evening meals were delicious and presented very nicely on the plate. One of the main assets of this hotel is the staff, from cleaners to kitchen staff to office... More

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
