Mountain View Hotel
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Lalibela
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Clean, simple rooms, great views and helpful staff.
We noted previous critical comments about the food but found it excellent by Ethiopian standards - and the chef went out of his way to offer us alternative dishes when we asked.
The only complaint was that service, especially at lunchtime, was very slow.

Never seen such beautiful view of Ethiopia unlike the terrace of this place. Staff were wonderful. Ready to help any way they can. Love the food. Beware of spices if you are not spice eater. Beware of noisy bed and bed bugs though. May be new bed and fresh sheet could solve that.

The views were definitely the selling point, though our rooms were basic but comfortable and clean. The hotel itself is very attractive and airy. Unlike others, we had no mosquito problems. The hotel has WiFi in the lobby that works most of the time, but the food was mediocre. Staff was helpful and lent us converters...good laundry service too.

Our biggest memory from this hotel are the mosquitoes. We were told there would be none at this altitude, but were wrong, there were loads of them. I was food poisoned (not here) so fending of mosquitoes while feeling awful wasn't a big hit. Other than that the hotel was good.

Amazing location, beautiful terrace overlooking Lalibela. Rooms are ok, could be a bit better, compare to the lobby, restaurant and view. Bed not very comfortable, double bed is very small. That's why we changed the next day to 2 single beds.Food is good, Very friendly people. A good place to stay in Lalibela

This hotel in the upper part of Lalibela has spectacular views. The rooms are nice and the food is good. Wifi in lobby is an asset. The big drawback is the long walk to town and the lack of availability of taxis.

Room Tip: all rooms have balcony and view
