It is a hotel with few rooms and a great view. The people are very nice. You can rest well in this hotel and have a nice break. It is very clean and comfortable. There is wifi in the hotel not necessary working from the room but in the reception/restaurant area. It has also the advantage to be within walking... More

Stayed here two nights in May. The rooms were huge, fantastic decor and nice touches. The massive clean bathroom was a bonus - the best we saw in Ethiopia. The price is hard to beat and breakfast included - basic but extremely adequate. Dinner options were limited so might be best to eat somewhere else. All the staff were super... More

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the beautifully located, quiet and small scale Lalibela Lodge, with its splendid view of Lalibela and the Simian mountains. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and we would certainly recommend Mario as a guide. Don't forget to visit some of the old churches and monasteries outside Lalibela- either on foot or in a...

We stayed at Lalibela Lodge over Easter weekend, and really enjoyed it in general. The rooms are great and the view is fantastic. I really wanted to love everything about this place, but we were in for a rude awakening when we went for dinner. We ordered fried fish, but got grey, boiled fish in a plate of cold rice... More

Lalibela Lodge was comfortable, yet quaint. It has an incredible view of the town, a very good restaurant, and an excellent location. The terrace is a breath-taking place to eat breakfast, although service is faster inside. The staff are very helpful and spoke excellent English. The pick up from the airport went smoothly and the hotel set me up with... More

Booked this hotel very last minute based on a friend's experience and were very pleased by the prompt reply to an email. Airport transfer was swift and a beautiful drive up to the town with knowledgeable staff to talk to on the way. Lodge itself is built to a high standard, set well into the hillside overlooking the churches on... More

Made the booking on the basis of the reviews and was not let down. The Lodge processed the booking very efficiently unlike other hotels I approached and delivered on its promises. The Lodge has a lovely setting and unlike most has a great view from its restaurant and whilst a little bit away from the Churches is well positioned ............... More
