Myself and a friend I had been travelling with for a couple of weeks arrived in Lalibela having taken the 3 day local buses strung together option from Aksum. More than a bit worn out we were happy to find room at the Asheton, and also to meet Ejigu. He gave us our room and later proved invaluable in booking... More

When we arrived, we were all impressed by the nice courtyard. However, the condition of the bathroom disgusted us after we checked in, and the wifi was pathetic...The boiler in our room was leaking making funny noises. We requested to change room, but the new room had a very small water pressure. After knowing our next day plan, the manager... More

It's one of the cheaper hotels in town, 16 rooms and it's in a good location. there's hot water, but you can't cool it down. there's wifi but it doesn't reach the rooms, the restaurant isn't great and definitely overpriced.

We only stayed at the Asheton for one night. Arrived pretty late from Mekele and despite having reserved a double room over the phone earlier in the day, were told that the only room left didn't have a working lock and did that matter? Of course it did matter, so we went for a twin room but the bathroom didn't... More

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel. The rooms are clean, hot shower works, but gives a small and too hot drizzle which wasn't really comfortable. But for this price we couldn't complain, had to bargain a lot though. Didn't have breakfast here, but heard others who said it was too expensive for what it was. Staff was helpful and... More

The inside courtyard is peaceful, it is ideally located for visiting the churches, but the hotel lack of maintenance. The rooms are not cleaned everyday, some rooms have no water pressure at all, we had to change room. The restaurant is poorly lit and took forever for a plate of plain rice. But overall i would say it is ok... More

Let me preface this by saying we stayed at the Asheton in Nov 2014. But, it seems that hotels in Ethiopia are almost always in worse condition after a year a two. Anyway, it would have been fine (not great, not terrible) except that we discovered bed bugs in our room. Guests in at least one other room had the... More

My room, like the facility, had character. Garden is charming; common room had nice decor but also a TV on all the time. The bathroom had a water leak in the shower that had been incompetently patched, so water ran down the wall and onto the floor constantly. Other times, there was no water at all besides a provided bucket-full.... More
