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. An opportunity to talk to local children over the fences who want to practise their English whilst tending to their family cattle in... More

Amazing place to stay in Lalibela and probably the best value for money of all the places we stayed in Ethiopia. Spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms, good breakfast, fantastic views and very attentive staff. Highly recommend it.

This small hotel was excellent - good location about 25 mins walk into town but with lovely views. Very helpful staff, good food and very comfortable spacious clean rooms. Would definitely recommend. We also had laundry done - very efficient and clean!

We had made reservations in the nearby cliff edge hotel, but the place looked like a construction site, so we decided to look at other options. Lalibela lodge had large rooms (compared to the valley view hotel which had small, expensive, dark and damp rooms). The manager is super friendly and accommodating and staff are efficient and helpful. Wifi was... More

Lalibela Lodge is a fabulous place to stay with amazingly helpful and kind staff, an awesome owner, a good location, and incredible views. We stayed at this lodge for 4 nights during a much-needed relaxation break in our 2-month travels. For a very good value, Lalibela Lodge provides nice, clean rooms with a balcony and beautiful views and great staff... More
