Comfortable, decent hotel in very nice grounds. A short ride into town for the churches. Average food but by no means bad. Very helpful staff, good recommendations of guides and places to eat. Clean rooms with hot water. Wifi in the communal areas

As others have commented this was part of the Ghion chain (see my review of the one in Addis) and in my experience still felt as such. To say it promised much but delivered little would be a good summary but there is little choice in Lalibela particularly for a group (I was one of 16). The location was excellent... More

The hotel reception, bar & dining rooms were a delight. The reception staff were very helpful, even showing us which part of the building was best for wifi connection! The bar was adequate but up to other hotels we had stayed in, expensive for Ethiopia. The breakfast in the hotel was one of the best, with the exception of fruit... More

Generally, good. Reception and room staff helpful, friendly & cheerful. Restaurant staff not always welcoming/friendly. Wine is exhorbitant: over 20% more than highest price for same elsewhere in Ethiopia. (Lalibela is generally more expensive: e.g. coffee double the price). Rooms hot: some have mesh window screens, but not always possible to open the glass window; desk-type fan just moves the... More

We ended up here as either over booking or error in booking with expected hotel. Unclear which. This hotel is of average standard but rooms decent size. Usual problem with thin walls which seems to prevail in Ethiopia. Rooms tired but adequate. Water hot. Food is buffet. Ok but not great. WiFi confined to one small area. Staff very friendly....

This split level hotel is quite nicely appointed inside and has a great restaurant. The rooms are quirky but comfortable, there was no wifi in the room, and I had a broken shower, so I don't feel I got great value for money. The staff, however, were excellent and let me charge my phone and laptop at reception given that... More

Like other reviewers we ended up in this hotel because the one originally booked had overbooked for the busy Christmas/ New Year. First impressions were not good. We arrived for lunch which was overpriced of poor quality and with a low level of service. Such was our experience that the group refused to eat there again except for the included... More

If you're looking for a fancy hotel with great amenities, you won't like the Roha. However, if you're open to a traditional hotel with amazingly friendly staff, you'll love it. The rooms are basic, but I had hot water, so I was grateful for that. There's a fan very handily turned on via a bedside switch. Staff are extremely friendly... More

We only ended up in the Roha because the hotel we had booked couldn't locate our booking. Looking at the other reviews, this seems to happen regularly. In our room the shower didn't work. Not because of water shortage but because the tap was broken. By the time they had fixed it we had missed the sunset and the water... More

We checked in here after another hotel we had booked turned us away. The food is pretty okay although I would avoid French toast. The staff was very friendly. The rooms are pretty bare and the lobby wifi is iffy, but that happens everywhere. The building interior is the best part: local stone with great decorations. Needs a major update.
