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. We were very happy with our stay here and would recommend it to all travelers. The best part about our stay was the large hornbill bird... More

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

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

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
