Mountain View Hotel
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Lalibela
Reviewed January 9, 2013

After a long day of visiting churches and hiking the mountain, have a drink on the beautiful terrace and take in the view and the sunset. Clean accommodations and helpful staff made this a great stay. We found the rooms to be very clean with everything we needed.

The Mountain View is I believe the best hotel in this city. It is modern with well appointed comfortable clean rooms ,a helpful staff and good food.
The outside patios overlook a fifty mile view of the valley below with a wonderful landscape and a perfect spot to just sit and enjoy the beauty of Ethiopia . Book ahead as they often fill . They wil pick you up at the airport and arrange for good guides to the churches.

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.
