This hidden gem in Lalibela is located about a 10 minute walk from the church and market place. The restaurant is wonderfully decorated , as well as a spacious room, and is designed as a typical traditional Ethiopian grass house. The rooms have a beautiful scenery overlooking the African landscape from the balcony. The food here was delicious. The breakfast... More

The best hotel we've stayed in so far. Why? The rooms are clean but basic, with a fantastic view. What makes this place thoroughly enjoyable is the welcome from all the staff and the delicious home cooked food. We have had 3 days here- the first night we were the only folk in the place, thereafter the hotel has been... More

The Jerusalem Hotel manager arranged a day for me in Lalibela that will always be memorable. With just one day for pleasure after traveling to Addis Ababa for business, I didn't manage to arrange a tour guide to tell me the story behind the city's eleven rock churches. The manager arranged one for me and told the guide to take... More

This is a charming local hotel that offers short access to the market and or stone churches by a good walk or short tuk-tuk. While maybe not as picturesque as one of the other hotels, this hotel provided amazing service with helping me with charging devices, checking on flights, early am meals, very good meals (you HAVE to try the...

We stayed here while visiting the churches. They are about a 20 minute walk from the hotel. Our room was large and clean. The wifi worked well. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Located within walking distance of the churches and close to restaurants and souvenir shops, this hotel is spotlessly clean with large rooms each with beautiful view from balconies, a good restaurant serving meals and good breakfast options. Friendly staff. Can organise tours and airport transfers etc as necessary.

We visited the rock churches of Lalabelia in Tanzania. The location is very convenient for seeing the churches, and seeing the other sites near the town. The room was comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the town. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The menu was fairly basic and simple. But the preparation of the food was outstanding.... More

The hotel is just fine. Very clean, quiet, rooms are nicely furbished and balcony is looking at the hills. It was a wonderful view for January 1st.)) It is not far from the curches, however there is a lot of dust in the city, so you might want to get some transport even for such short distance. There is a... More
