We were very happy with everything during our stay at Fikir and Ray Lodge. They welcomed us with a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, which was a very pleasant bonus. Nati was very helpful in finding us a great guide, and also helped us out when our flight home was cancelled. We would highly recommend our guide, Yohannes "John" Melkamu. He gave us a 2-day tour of all of the rock-hewn churches. Having been born and raised in Lalibela, he was able to point out many interesting tidbits, highlights and local lore of the place. He also helped us arrange very reasonably-priced transportation to Bahir Dar by private mini-bus. His Whatsapp number is +251906359488. He even checked up on us after our flights were canceled to make sure we got back home safe. The breakfast at the lodge is definitely geared towards westerners, but we were actually hoping for traditional Ethiopian cuisine.

The hotel is located near the historical area and just about 15 minuets by walk, you can enjoy the Ethiopian traditional coffee at the lobby or many restaurant around (specially Ben Abeba) we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Room was clean and comfortable, the staff were kind and helpful. They have airport shuttle and we met their good guide name ‘Mario’ at the airport who was very friendly and helpful, he took us around the city, historical churches, local market. He has really good knowledge of their history and explained every details on the sites. It was pleasant experience.
