Everything you want from a hotel in Lalibella. Very clean and right in the centre of town. Hot water worked well and there was free wifi. The rooms overlook a fantastic valley (the same as hotel Maribella but cheaper!) - each with a balcony to match. The only negative was the food which was a bit hit and miss for...

This hotel is run by a great family. They are friendly welcoming and helpful. It may not have the best facilities in Lalibela but the smiles on the faces of the family and staff make up for that. It is clean and the rooms have that unforgettable view.

I don't think you can expect too much in this town, so this hotel was fine for the area. The wifi didn't work one day but was decent the following day (though it only works in the lobby). Our room had a gorgeous view of the landscape and was especially picturesque in the mornings. Dinner was OK but the breakfast...

Absolute stunning views from this hotel. The rooms are nicely decorated and the staff are absolutely lovely. Would recommend! The breakfast is served out on the patio. They kindly helped us buy some airline tickets and they didnt even charge us commission.

After having been switched from one hotel to another, due to overbookings, we were not in a mood to be happy. But, the rooms were fine with spectacular views, the impromptu lunch was tasty and satisfying, served outside. And, good plumbing with plenty of hot water. Good breakfasts, too. Highly recommended!

We stayed at this hotel twice- in August and December 2016. In between our visits the hotel looks after our two land rovers free of charge. On both our stays the manager, beyene, helped us find a mechanic, organise excursions to the churches, arrange dinner at the Ben abeba restaurant and find anything we could possibly need. The rooms have...

All people at the hotel were genuinely friendly, making my stay a pleasant stay! The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, shower worked well ... and I had a super view from my balcony! The breakfast was OK and dinner too, I didn't have lunch at the hotel. Coordination with the local agency went very well (e.g. transportation to...

I enjoyed my two nights here very much. I have stayed at a couple of hotels having the same view as this one, but it is clear the management here really care about the place. The art work is wonderful, the breakfast good, the rooms a generous size and the view incredible. I would not hesitate to book this hotel...
