The rooms were large, clean and very attractive. One of the very few in Ethiopia that are well maintained. We think due to the hotel manager who could't be more helpful and obliging. He is also the go to man if you need tours organized.

Three of us stayed here for 3 nights. We were delighted with the excellent service, especially in the restaurant. Staff were always friendly and helpful and the food was freshly made and good.. We stayed in two upper bedrooms in two tukuls and found them on the whole pleasant and peaceful with nice views.

The room phones aren't working and both my partner and I got sick and every time we wanted something , like tea , we had to walk downstairs... More

The traditional style tukul rooms were pure luxury by any standards but were by no means luxury prices. We had a top floor room that looked out across a small valley to St... More

The rooms at Tukul Village have the quality and style of a safari lodge at half the price, The floor to ceiling length windows, beautiful tasteful furniture and stone walls and hardwood floors all made it hard for us to leave. The rooms are private and peaceful and the staff are friendly and attentive. The breakfasts are also tasty and... More

My partner and I stayed here for three nights during the latter part of our trip through Ethiopia and loved it. By Ethiopian standards Tukul really is quite good. Our room was large, clean, well designed and decorated using native materials. It had a lovely balcony looking out towards Bet Giorgis and the other rock hewn churches, hot water, 24hrs... More

It was the best hotel we had in Ethiopia: rooms are all located in round tukuls. They are large, very nicely decorated and with a balcony. Bathrooms are large and clean. The staff is kind and the restaurant is OK. The hotel is well located to visit the churches.
