Jersusalem was clean, staff attentive and pick-up and transfers from airport were punctual and friendly. Hotel is very well placed within Lalibela itself with main churches within a short walk. Our guide, Destaw Ysmaw, who seemed to be affiliated with hotel pick-up from airport was very knowledgeable and gave us a first class tour around both the churches and the... More

I wish I could've stayed a week to enjoy the magic of the churches and surroundings! First impressions were good as guide Morges from the hotel greeted me enthusiastically at the tiny airport and launched into the intro to Lalibela while I was trying to take in the scenery. I was told it was the low season so I think... More

I stayed for three nights and am glad I chose this hotel in Lalibela. Although my room was very basic it opened onto a verandah with superb views towards the mountains, and I loved sitting and watching the dawn and the sunset. There were thunderstorms with lightning flashes across the sky, too, and rain, during the evenings, so it was... More

Sitting on the room's stoep, watching the thunderstorm come in at sunset. Wow. Yes, we got lucky, because we were only in Lalibela one night, and had the most amazing visit. The churches aside, this was such a nice place to stay. We first had a nice clean 'fasting' lunch at the hotel after being picked up at the airport,... More

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...
