The hotel is a little far from the churches but still walking distance if you don't mind ascents and descents and kids around you. The rooms are aligned in a nice garden, facing the valley and the sunset, they have a pleasant decor and a nice terrace. The water is hot. Wifi didn't work the first night but when I...

Lovely hotel , nice staff, decent food, stayed there for several days while visiting the Churches, and had a lovely time. I would stay there again if I had an opportunity. The view is OK, over a construction zone.

Hotel was a pleasant surprise. We had difficulty finding rooms over the holiday and learned of price surges so we were not expecting Lalibela Lodge to be as nice as it was for the price. The detailed furniture is an especially nice touch. The terrace was a pleasant place to enjoy a lazy day away from the crowds. Menu is...

The Lodge is panoramic, rooms are big and really comfortable, the service is very nice. The owner, Habtamu, can also reserve tours with professional guides, to visit lalibela churches or organize a tour outside the city: since he himself was a guide, he has a very deep knowledge of the beauties of this area and he's in contact with the...

I've stayed here twice- once when traveling alone and once with friends. It's great value for money, only about $30 per person including airport pick up and breakfast. The rooms are homey, clean, have nice outdoor space, and a lovely view. They also had great wifi, especially compared to other place we stayed. I would definitely recommend for value for...

I have just spent two weeks in Ethiopia. The standard of hotel is rather variable so it is all the more important to be discerning. This one is excellent, has friendly staff and is well located. There is a picture of George Bush on the wall from his recent visit.

Good room, wonderful view from terrace at breakfast (and a good breakfast too). Basic dining room so we didn't eat there but good restaurant nearby. Very helpful proprietor who was a mine of information. Lovely smiley staff. Not the most luxurious but very good value for money.

We stayed 2 nights and the room facing a garden was nice. We arrived late the first night and ate in the restaurant. The food was fresh, simple, but tasty. The hotel staff helped us to find a guide to visit the churches. Among the things to improve is the shower sink, partially blocked during our stay, the water tended...

Lalibela Lodge This was our favourite place to stay on our trip around Ethiopia. It is not over-luxurious, but has quite a local feel, endearing staff including a helpful manager, and they have even had a stay by George Bush according to the picture in reception. There are good views over the town from the rooms, and sunrise and sunset...
