Nice rooms with hot showers. We stayed for 2 nights before our Yosef Abuna trek and 1 night after. Great service, nice breakfast with a view. Friendly staff, everything worked in our rooms. Would return there for sure.

With just 10 units, the Lodge is small, but the rooms were amongst the best I experienced in like accommodation in Ethiopia. The bed was comfortable, there was a private balcony (albeit with a wall to sit and see over!) and a sitting area with coffee table. The bathroom was spacious, with a good supply of ready hot water.

We stayed here mid-June 2014 for a few days. Free airport pick-up, clean, comfortable rooms, hot showers, with great views and attentive staff. Wifi is not the best but you can always walk down the road (5mins) to the hotel next door which provides fast service. We also met our guide, Bley, at the hotel (he is one of four... More

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
