My sister and I stayed at Lalibela Lodge for two nights while exploring Lalibela and before our TESFA trek. The staff at LL are full of smiles and give a good taste of Ethiopian hospitality. I chose this place because, well, GWB stayed here and it was a great price. And I am so glad that we did! Booking was... More

I stayed here for a night in June 2015 when on a tour arranged by Ethio Travel and Tours (highly recommend). The twin room we had was lovely, spacious and clean with comfortable beds and a nice view. The location is good, walking distance to the town. Friendly staff. Wifi in the restaurant area. No complaints.

nice location, and views, quiet area, but yet not too far from shops, and restaurants, Ben Ababa restaurant isn't that far either. The rooms are really nice and the service you get from all the staff is great, my room had a balcony which was nice. George W Bush stayed here for two days when he was president so its... More

Stayed a couple of nights here with my family. The rooms are very comfortable and attractive, without doubt the best we came across in Ethiopia. The staff are very competent and, as always in Ethiopia, friendly and helpful. The hotel has a covered terrace with a decent view (a new building in front of it may mar that if it's... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Lalibela Lodge. The staff is lovely and very helpful. I've had a very cosy room with a balcony and a big bathroom. And I just loved sitting on the terrace a little below the Restaurant. From there you have a nice view, even though the construction of a new museum is spoiling it a... More

My trip to Ethiopia was as much about the people as the place and the staff at Lalibela Lodge were the cherry on the cake in this respect. They were always happy to help, greeted us always with a cheery smile and we enjoyed taking time to chat to them. It's a nice place, particularly for the price. We were... More

I spent only two half days in Lalibela but it was very pleasant and impressive. The lodge is very cute, the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The balcony gives you a beautiful view over Lalibela and the surrounding mountains. The restaurant is also very nice and particularly the breakfast is delicious. The staff is extremely freindly and helpful.

Lalibela Lodge was the cleanest, most finely decorated, new constructed hotel I stayed in out of 5 others in Ethiopia, and had the most professional staff who made me comfortable and happy to be there. Belay, the guide recommended to me by Habtamu, the owner, was thorough, polite and provided an experience tailored to my interests. I highly recommend the... More

Owned by Italians (albeit non resident), a really nice property and a nice surprize as the only decent lodge we stayed in Excellent staff, wonderful location and views, a lot of land including domestic animals wandering around.
