Personally visited several Lalibela hotels on my trip and Roha was easily the best. Others were older, not as clean, had poorer restaurants and were noisier. Roha has phenomenal service, large rooms, and is very quiet. The tour staff is also incredible. They provided me with a personal tour guide, security, full use of a car, and tours to all... More

i am an experienced world traveler of matrure years, traveling alone or with friends, picky but not overly so, who does much advance research for trips, and am therefore generally happy with my hotel choices.

Our tour group stayed here for 3 nights. I had a twin room to myself with views through trees to mountains. Clean and quiet, and there was hot water once the shower had run for a while (do your laundry first!) The hotel is about 30 mins walk from town or you can get a taxi our tuktuk. There are... More

I have stayed in the Roha many times, and have a soft spot for it. The hotel itself is desperate for renovation but still has a 'feel' to it. The staff are very loyal and work hard. People have mentioned the lack of view - go up on the roof! You cannot beat the view - sit with a drink... More

We first stayed in the Roha in 1993 and did so just now once again (5 nights). Happy to say, the Roha is still going strong! It was a happy reunion indeed. Comfortable room. Friendly staff. Good food. Free Wifi. Not to mention the roof top terrace, with a 360 degrees views of the surrounding mountains and a garden filled... More

I stayed here for three nights with my family which was perfect! It is owned by the same company that owns Goha hotel in Gonder and Yeha hotel in Axum so the room design is exactly the same. However, the reception and dining areas in this hotel are wonderful. There is no pool and the landscaping is poor but other... More

I stayed here for 1 night. The location is good, near to the monolithic churches. My room was ok and decorated with ethnic style. Breakfast and dinner are average. There a small but good gift shop in the reception area.
