The owner/manager is very trustworthy and answers my emails/phone calls promptly. We stayed during Ethiopian Christmas and the rooms were fully booked. They offered camping on their ground. The camping was what I considered "glamping". Although it was very basic, the tent was very nice and the mattress was more comfortable than most hotels I stayed at in Ethiopia. The... More

Walking into the reception office you will find a picture of the entire hotel staff with George Bush. Apparently the president stayed here on a visit, This is not a luxury establishment, but I would consider it nice.... My room had a porch with seats overlooking the city, The walk down to the churches is reasonable and there are nice... More

I had two nights booked at the Lalibela Lodge but then had to change one of the rooms from the double to twin. Unfortunately they were fully booked so could not accommodate us for one of the nights but the main reason for this review is to say that the service I received from Habtamu in trying to accommodate us...

We stayed here after a rather traumatic traffic accident. The manager and staff were all very kind and concerned. The room and facilities were good and the setting ideal - close enough to the sights but quiet and peaceful. The balcony was a lovely place to sit. Food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.

We spent two nights and found the Lalibela Lodge to be very pleasant. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and dinner (actually joined a nice couple from Panama one night) and would highly recommend it.

The lodge was just what we needed partway through our trip to Ethiopia. It was quiet, friendly and had good food. Coffee outside mid afternoon was perfect. Our room was clean and a nice size with a balcony.

I really liked staying at Lalibela Lodge. The double room was spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet, and had a nice sitting area at the porch from which you could see the torches at the churches during Christmas night and even hear the singing. An unforgettable experience! The staff were all very friendly, from the girls at the reception to the gardener.... More
