Lalibela is an exceptional place to visit and the staff at the Jerusalem hotel made my visit even better. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff very friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend this hotel.

Only thing good about this place is the view from the balcony. But other than that I would give negative ratings for the rest of amenities. The place is mosquito infested in the evenings. Bathrooms are smelly. Breakfast is stale (My coffee had a few termites floating on the top and egg scramble felt like it was from the day... More

The staff were all extremely helpful and couldn't do enough for us, also arranging a guide to visit the churches. We met family friends who had come on a four hour bus drive to see us. They were made welcome and we were able to sit together in the outside undercover area. The rooms were basic, but very comfortable. Hot... More

The views are spectacular from the balconies - all rooms face the same way, but if you sit on the balcony you leave the french door open..Without mosquito screening, or mosquito nets, the pests were buzzing and biting all nights even with the door closed which made the room very stuffy. There is no malaria in Lalibela but there are... More

I had booked one of the budget single rooms, which had its own bathroom and balcony with a nice view. The shower in the room was hot, but not exactly a power shower. The restaurant/bar was very good, a lovely breakfast. Staff are fantastic and eager to help. A good location, its quite at night (except for 1 night I... More

The room was clean and the shower worked well. The view from the room was spectacular. There is a nice balcony to relax on. The restaurant does not have an airport shuttle but we used Sora Lodge's and they collected us from the Jerusalem Hotel. We had no issues with the hotel. Breakfast was the usual and the traditional food... More

Hmm, let's see, cons: 1) Walls are paper thin, you can literally hear any conversation in the next door rooms, you can hear your neighbor snore, you can hear your neighbor on the toilet etc etc. 2) The shower does provide hot water. Unfortunately, it provides a tiny trickle of hot water. You feel cold because the rooms are cold... More

Basic rooms without TV or mini bar, but with great wifi. The restaurant serves traditional and international foods, my advise is to go for the traditional (as always in Ethiopia). The view is spectacular and the staff friendly. We had a thunderstorm (Christmas Eve) and was out of electricity, the restaurant handled it very good and could still cock food... More

Our second-floor room was comfortable and clean, with a balcony and lovey view. The grounds were pleasant and we found the food quite good. Staff were friendly and we had an excellent guide, Ermiyas Workye, who seems to know every inch of the churches and the interconnecting tunnels. The early morning visit with local worshippers and the mist rising from... More
