The hotel is situated at the end of the road, so there's no traffic or noise. The hotel rooms overlook the fantastic valley and mountain range opposite and what a view that is. The colours change over the course of the day and at night the headlights from cars going up the mountain illuminate the scenery - just fantastic -... More

Accommodation - decent rooms, clean and comfortable. Not luxury, but decent. Food - decent for local and European cuisine. Hotel location - best view I've ever had form a hotel and close to the rock churches.

I have stayed at the Mountain View three times in the last three years. It is a beautiful hotel and I have always looked forward to staying there. This year I added an extra day for relaxation. Sadly, I got my first case of bed bugs this year, June of 2016. The staff must have known about the problem when... More

The only really good thing about this hotel is the view. Extremely poor service, smoke alarm battery dead and could not replace. No shower gel or shampoo, just hard soap. Poky and primitive bathroom with dodgy plumbing. Telephone was not working. WiFi was variable & only worked near the reception. The food was variable: fresh fruit was good but some... More

I had a night at Mountain view and it was a peaceful stay with a beautiful view. Good food and nice and quiet. Simple but comfortable rooms. Staff went above and beyond to help me sort out a few problems with my trip and were so friendly - much appreciated ! Definitely recommend.

Perched on the mountain's edge in Lalibela, this hotel is a great spot to take in this magical city. Restaurant was decent. Wi-fi only available in common area. But, the allure is the view from the room, out of the hills with monkeys and birds paying a visit below.

We were there for two nights and I think it was a good choice. The views were breathtaking. The room was somewhat basic and quite small, as was the bathroom. The food was a little disappointing, uninspired and offering little choice. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a comfortable experience. Recommended.

Room was basic, but staff was very helpful, food excellent, and views unsurpassed. I was breathless, and not just because we were at 8000 feet! Lalibela is a gem not to be missed. I really appreciated my guide, Hailu, who was one of the best guides I have ever had.

Stayed one night here and then switched to Maribela Hotel. At the The Mountain View Hotel the views are wonderful, as the hotel is at the end of the road. This is the good. The negatives were that the bed was like sleeping on a concrete slab, which compromised sleep and mobility the next day. The other room that my... More
