I've stayed here twice- once when traveling alone and once with friends. It's great value for money, only about $30 per person including airport pick up and breakfast. The rooms are homey, clean, have nice outdoor space, and a lovely view. They also had great wifi, especially compared to other place we stayed. I would definitely recommend for value for... More

We stayed two nights in the hotel and the service was so incredible! The day we reached was July 09, 2016 and it was the birth day of our youngest boy (age 7). As soon as we reached there we told to the manager of the hotel that we need to celebrate the birthday there and with in just an... More

I have just spent two weeks in Ethiopia. The standard of hotel is rather variable so it is all the more important to be discerning. This one is excellent, has friendly staff and is well located. There is a picture of George Bush on the wall from his recent visit.

Good room, wonderful view from terrace at breakfast (and a good breakfast too). Basic dining room so we didn't eat there but good restaurant nearby. Very helpful proprietor who was a mine of information. Lovely smiley staff. Not the most luxurious but very good value for money.

We stayed 2 nights and the room facing a garden was nice. We arrived late the first night and ate in the restaurant. The food was fresh, simple, but tasty. The hotel staff helped us to find a guide to visit the churches. Among the things to improve is the shower sink, partially blocked during our stay, the water tended... More

Lalibela Lodge This was our favourite place to stay on our trip around Ethiopia. It is not over-luxurious, but has quite a local feel, endearing staff including a helpful manager, and they have even had a stay by George Bush according to the picture in reception. There are good views over the town from the rooms, and sunrise and sunset... More

Ethiopia needs more small personally run hotels such as this one. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and the lower tier have great views. The food is fresh and straightforward. We have already told the manager of 2 changes that would make the hotel even better: to have cushions and chairs on the individual terraces (at the moment there are... More

The owner/manager is very trustworthy and answers my emails/phone calls promptly. We stayed during Ethiopian Christmas and the rooms were fully booked. They offered camping on their ground. The camping was what I considered "glamping". Although it was very basic, the tent was very nice and the mattress was more comfortable than most hotels I stayed at in Ethiopia. The... More

Walking into the reception office you will find a picture of the entire hotel staff with George Bush. Apparently the president stayed here on a visit, This is not a luxury establishment, but I would consider it nice.... My room had a porch with seats overlooking the city, The walk down to the churches is reasonable and there are nice... More
