“room with great view!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Thanks to the recommendations on Tripadvisor, we booked one of the two bedrooms for two nights at Mountain View hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staffs were helpful and friendly.

The best part was the view from the room balcony and rooftop terrace.

I would definitely stay there again when I go back to Lalibela

Room Tip: the first floor rooms are with a spectacular view to the valley below.

This is likely one of the better hotels in Lalibela. The name of the hotel is spot on: it has a magnificent view from each of the balconies of each room. The rooms are clean, standard, nothing fancy but OK, the bathroom is ok, there is not a lot of water pressure in the shower but the water is nicely warm. We found the hotel restaurant a little dissapointing, it has a small menu with pastas and some sandwiches, rice plates, the quality is definitely OK but the choices are a little boring. The wifi is accessible in the lobby, which is nice. Personnel is friendly.

We stayed at MV hotel because of the lonely planet recommendation; however it did not seem to be the best hotel in Lalibela. There were many other hotels with the same view and a cheaper price that were probably just as comfortable, if not more. The staff at MV was not so friendly, although the free breakfast was tasty. I'd recommend other travelers stay somewhere else that's a bit cheaper!! Enjoy lalibela though :) it is truly a wonderful town.

We only had the opportunity to spend one night at the hotel. Arrived in the morning before taking off for a few hours of sightseeing. We checked in early and our rooms were ready. The rooms have amazing views and when returning from a day of sightseeing a cold beverage on the terrace is worth it. Not a great of variety in the menu for dinner but what we had was tasty. Breakfast was also basic but good. The hotel was reasonably priced and would recommend.

Again one of the great things about this hotel is the views.

For a fairly new hotel it was in pretty poor condition. Lights didn't work, there was virtually no water pressure, windows leaked and the rooms smelt musty. The beds were broken down and creaked. It was clean but it was probably the worst service we experienced in Ethiopia. The staff were uncommunicative and stood around ignoring guests most of the time. Food was just okay with a fairly limited menu. A bird pooped on me as I sat in the foyer waiting to check out which sort of summed up the overall experience.

Stunning views, close enough to walk to the churches, good food, clean and comfortable rooms (not fancy), good dining service, reasonable front desk service.

Hired Assefa Genzebu to be our guide for the churches. Very honest, considerate, knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend him to others.
