Roha is an earlier name for Lalibella, and this hotel is one of the earlier hotels in Lalibella. Checking in was easy and our room was fine with a comfortable bed, plenty of room, and plumbing that was efficient even if not looking too modern. It is very conveniently located for the famous monolithic Churches but far enough away from the central area to be quiet and relaxing. The staff were very helpful friendly and polite, and the wifi was relatively fast and problem free. The architecture of the building is very good and the restaurant and bar areas have a good feel to them.
Other reviewers mentioned the food, and didn't rate it at all with a menu offering a limited choice. The fixed price menu was offered first, but there was another menu which had greater choice, particularly of Ethiopian food. I wish I had chosen from this menu as the food that was served to another couple looked much better than the food we chose from the set menu. After this at the next two stops I chose to eat local dishes and it was a much better experience.
We only stayed one night and had an early start to get to the airport for the flight to Gondar. Unlike others when we went down for breakfast at 6.00 there was staff and food available, though the food choices were very limited.
Overall it was a satisfactory overnight stay without having any 'wow; factor. It is right in Lalibella unlike Mountain View and this alone makes it worth staying at again.
