I stayed at Jerusalem Hotel during Ethiopian Christmas in January 2020. The hospitality was wonderful; Solomon went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The grounds are beautiful and lush, and a lovely oasis from the bustle of the city (at least during Christmas - it's much calmer the rest of the year). Sitting by the fire with a bottle of tej is one of my favorite memories from my trip to Ethiopia. Thank you Solomon, Desiye and everyone who helped make our visit so wonderful!

I spent a couple of weeks in Ethiopia with a group of people, 7 in total. I contacted from Italy the manager of the Jerusalem Hotel, Mr. Desiye (What's up +251 91 447 8058 desiye27@gmail.com) ahead of time, to plan our trip to Lalibela and without knowing each others, he helped me well beyond his job. In Lalibela he was fundamental in getting the best services at a very affordable price in peak season (upgraded rooms, great meals, dedicated guide, and much more). Elsewhere he was also able to book accommodations for us that you could not even find in the web, facilitate communication with difficult people and made it possible for us to complete our tour of Ethiopia smoothly. Mr. Desiye is a smart dedicated person, customer focused, gentle and smiling always there to help you, before, during and after your stay! He is 100% reliable and trustworthy... don't worry, you will be in good hands, that's why he is Lalibela's best kept secret!!! You can contact him via Phone/what's up at +251 91 447 8058 desiye27@gmail.com

We stayed at Hotel Jerusalem as part of our tour of northern Ethiopia. Our room was on the second floor. The room was clean and spacious and included a private bathroom. The owner and staff were all nice and pleasant. Our major problem was that the room was full of mosquitoes. We didn’t realize this until later into the night. All room doors open to a veranda, so we didn’t want to go out in the middle of the night to look for someone to do something. My husband killed at least 20 mosquitoes during that one night and we still got bitten. If you stay in this hotel, please inspect your room upon check-in. From other’s reviews it sounds like not everyone had this issue, so you can prevent this from happening to you by being diligent. It might be a good idea to ask if they can provide mosquito nets when you book your room. We ate one meal and had breakfast at the restaurant. Breakfast buffet included 5-6 items and was sufficient. The meal was decent.

Located in the heart of lalabela this hotel provides an authentic rural Ethiopian accommodation experience. The rooms were very clean and the staff are eager to impress. The hotel restaurant was open when we got up for the rock hewn tour and remained open well into the evening. A’la carte dining prepared fresh to order so ask what the daily recommendations are for the best dining experience.

For most people, I guess, it is important that the accommodation is safe, it has a friendly staff, the location is convenient (in the town and for the views), and the quality of sleep is fine. Jerusalem hotel provided all this. Ok, the place have seen its heydays perhaps 10-15 years ago, the decor is a bit old-ish, and I did not get a proper Wi-Fi access though the net was there. The restaurant was quite good (there are better in the town) but the complimentary breakfast was filling (fried eggs, local stuff, bread, coffee). The hotel shuttle to the airport takes 30 mins and it is very convenient and inexpensive. Its many 15 mins walk to the churches. The best views (and really nice to the mountains adn valleys) is from the second floor, perhaps the room 16 as the best.

We booked Jerusalem hotel because we were told we could pay with credit card, and the price was very good. We got a very pleasant surprise when we arrived and saw confortable public spaces such as a terrace and nice restaurant, and its garden had beautiful flowers and plants, very well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The owner is constantly looking for your comfort. The non budget rooms are spacious, clean and a full functioning bathroom with hot water, if you take a long shower maybe the next person to shower will get warm but not hot water, which is no biggie since we had hot weather. They have a balcony with a nice view and where you can enjoy the sunset. The restaurant is amazing, by far the best flavours we tried in Lalibela (we went to Ben Abeba and Seven Olives). Totally recommended!

There was an amazing view of distant mountains from the expansive door wall and deck, as well as stunning sunsets. The room itself was spacious, comfortable, clean, and with reliable wifi. The property was quiet, but the location is fairly distant from the center of town, but easily doable on foot or in a tuk tuk. Fortunately, the restaurant serves excellent food and cold beer so it is quite easy to wind down right on the property after a long day of touring. The staff is very friendly and attentive while not being pushy about tours. The credit card machine worked. A lovely stay!

Spacious rooms to stretch your legs, balconies with wonderful view, very good restaurant with very good service. In a walking distance to all you'd like to see in Lalibela. Say hello to Solomon, the boss, and to Abraraw, the best receptionist and waiter in town, and tell them we wouldn't stay anywhere else next time.

We had a great time in Lalibela, we arrived late in the evening but the staff helped us to arrange a tour of the churches the next day which was excellent, would recommend their guide. Food offered is tasty, breakfast is included, simple but filling. The views from the rooms are stunning, location easy walking distance to the centre of town. Rooms are simple but comfortable, laundry service is offered which was quick and reasonably priced. We were travelling by public transport and the staff also helped us to arrange our journey out of Lalibela with a car that had been used for a tour but was travelling back to Addis empty, allowing us to get a comfortable, affordable option for the first part of our journey.
