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

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
