I stayed here for 3 nights in March, 2020. My room was spacious and charming with Ethiopian paintings, bedspread, and round tukul style design. Best of all was the large doorwall leading out to a balcony made private by a blooming jacaranda tree and various shrubbery, both visited frequently by numerous birds. The location is within walking distance of cafe's, shops, and restaurants and a short drive to many Lalibela sites. ATM is at the entrance. Breakfast and dinners were tasty with options to eat outside under a shady covering. It was well kept at high standards. Highly recommend.

We stayed two nights at this hotel, where the room was clean and comfortable, with a good shower. Meals and service were fine. Location was good. We had some laundry done and they did a very good job. There was Internet at the small reception office, but that meant sitting, uncomfortably, on a step, just outside the office. Better seating in the common Internet area would have improved our rating from average to very good.

My husband and I stayed for one night while visiting the churches. The hotel was conveniently located to the town. The rooms were beautiful, comfy bed, lovely balcony, nice bathroom. The staff spoke English really well and were incredibly helpful and friendly. They arranged several transports for us. Breakfast was fine, but if you ask you can get porridge. If we came back to this area, we would definitely stay here again.

Whether you're an independent traveller or in a group tour everyone ends up in Lalibela. There's a great deal more to the town than the churches even if they are extraordinary. It's not a tourist town. It's the heart of the Ethiopian Orthodox church. Its people are deeply devout. We were fortunate - if that's the right word- to stumble on a pubic funeral an occasion of great solemnity but also an opportunity for folk to meet and greet each other. The Tukul village is almost exclusively a tourist hotel. The 'Tukuls' - traditional Ethiopian rondavels are light and airy, spacious. Beds are OK, bathrooms a little primitive, staff as nearly always in Ethiopia, charming and genuinely eager to please. What it could really do with is more outside seating. It has a nice, shady courtyard. A few well-placed rattan armchairs and tables and a bar would be very welcome and would probably generate income because people would sit and order.

OK for a couple of days. Food in evenings fine, breakfast not great but passable. Staff friendly and helpful. Some pretty birds is the grounds (sunbirds, hornbills). Good hot showers and comfy beds. Good value laundry service.
