I stayed at this hotel for 2 days. This hotel is in the city end. The staffs of the hotel were very kind, and room was clean. The meal was delicious and especially it’s "meet and tomato pasta" was very delicious. If you arrive at a Lalibera airport, the staff is waiting and he will take you to a hotel... More

Everyone at Jerusalem was friendly and helpful. i lost my cellphone on the day off my trip. the hotel staff immediately contacted me and send it to Addis Ababa. I appreciated their care and... More

Some of the rooms in this hotel have good views towards the mountains, but don't expect any frills. The Ethiopian food at the restaurant was of reasonable quality, although better can be found elsewhere in Ethiopia. Staff were pleasant and efficient.

Great views of the mountains, good size clean rooms with twin beds, restaurant food is great if you go for the local dishes, European menu not so good. Lots of hot water, much needed after a day visiting the churches. Downside, window frame in my room, second floor, had a hole in it, only a shower no bath, but it... More

just outside the center of Lalibela is this fantastic hotel, overlooking the mountains around Lalibela on one side, and a pretty garden with a restaurant on the other side. We always felt a warm welcome in this hotel; the staff is great and you will really feel at home. The rooms are clean and perfect. we really recommend this hotel... More

I have been staying every year at this wonderful family hotel since it opened over ten years ago and can not recommend it more highly. There is such a friendly atmosphere with superb attentive unobstrusive staff who can not do more for you. This is a true Ethiopian built and run enterprise with traditional Ethiopian hospitality. This has nothing of... More

Beware! Some of the rooms are very nice, others are literally in the dungeon. My room's only window was onto the hallway whose light shone into my room. I had to keep getting up to turn off the light as other guests arrived in the evening. It gets worse - the waste water pipe was in the room so I... More

Deceitful. Had long standing reservation through our local travel agent for the "best available" room for a three day stay. We arrived early evening, in the rain, after a long road trip to be greeted by the manger who said that he would personal show us our room. He proceed to take us to a squat side building where he...

Stayed near and used the hotel for coffee and wifi. Wifi is locked and is super fast. The rooms looked lovely and have an amazing view over the mountains and is stunning for sun set. Restaurant is nice but overpriced, like everywhere in lalibela!

We came here to see the churches but were a little underwhelmed being far more blown away by the staggering natural beauty of this part of the world. The hotel is fine - functional and very well managed. In fact we were extremely impressed by the management of Moges. Food wasn't up to much, there wasn't anywhere nice to sit... More
