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.

I stayed in Tukul Village for one night on June 27th. My room was very clean with all the necessary amenities. Nice view of Lalibela from the Balcony. Friendly hotel staff at the restaurant. They stand and watch you till you finish. Always ready to serve (Bose and Atsede). Food was excellent. In general, a clean, quiet and comfortable hotel.... More

Our room was comfortable and had a lovely big bathroom. There was also a nice balcony with a great view across to the market and of the area around St George's. The restaurant wasn't great, but we were close to lots of other restaurants and could walk there and back easily. They provided a great guide for the Churches.

I stayed 2 nights here whilst working in the area - it was the cool , rainy season so very quiet , in fact I was the only guest on the second night. The picture on the website is misleading - the gardens are now mature with lovely bougainvillea and other climbing plants round the Tukuls- so humming birds, butterflies... More

We were advised this is the best hotel in Lalibela and probably had our expectations built up. Pros: Gardens are mature and very attractive. Staff are very friendly, English was fine and any requests dealt with quickly. Breakfast is included and enjoyable. WiFi very good in the reception area. Rooms are clean, with good shower pressure and hot water. Cons:... More

Each hotel room is one floor in it's own bungalow. Room was very clean and had a balcony overlooking the churches. Wifi worked well in the main area and in the restaurant. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Lalibela.

My friend and I stayed here in a twin room for a couple of nights in late May 2016. To begin, the gardens are a lot more mature than they were when the photos on trip advisor were taken, and our tukul (we had the top floor) was at the end of a beautiful walkway of fragrant flowers and bright...

My cousin and I stayed here for just one night after a long trek outside of Lalibela. Our room was very clean and spacious and was exactly what we needed after our long hike. The receptionist was super friendly and saved the day by letting me use his iphone charger. Meals were good and staff were extra friendly. Definitely one... More

Very nice and very well kept hotel, the rooms were large and comfortable, the bathroom was good with well pressured hot water. The mattresses were too soft and there was some sort of local discotheque below our room which was somewhat noisy. The restaurant service was also good, particularly the terrace for breakfast/lunch. I think it was quite good and... More

The location of Tukul Village is close to the churches. Walking to and from the churches was great. They have staff that will try to help make your stay pleasant. Rooms are spacious. On the flip slide, the food in the restaurant is below average. Eat at other places for lunch and dinner. There is only wifi outside of the... More
