My girlfriend and I stayed at the Lal Hotel for three nights in the off-season and had a wonderful experience. We were given a room with a terrific view of the town with the mountains in the background. The room was clean, the bed firm and comfortable and the deck outside provided a fantastic place to practice yoga early in...

Stayed here for one night with my girlfriend. We spent the whole night awake due to their being lots of mosquitos in the room, and there being no mosquito nets! We went out to the reception during the night which was closed. My girlfriend spoke with the night security guys and they came and sprayed our room. But then, the...

The Lal Hotel is one of the few large hotels in Lalibela and its prime feature is the excellent service of its manager, Bobby, and his very friendly and helpful staff. We held two workshops at the hotel for about 60 people over a week, with about 25 of those people staying there for that whole week. It was really...

We have stayed in the hotel for two nights and we have actually felt at home. The entire staff, no one excluded, was very nice, always smiling and ready to take care of our needs. Even the driver of the airport shuttle is very nice and responsible while driving, which is not so common in Ethiopia. We also thank Molla...

Nice hotel, one of the better ones I had the oppurtunity to stay in whilst in Ethiopia. The rooms were clean and nice, wifi worked in the lobby and garden (not in rooms), the shower wasn't too bad (occasional cold water bursts, but thats standard in Ethiopia), and the breakfastwas ok. However, as a feedback to the hotel, here are...

In my visit to Lalibela last June, I was summoned by a young man at the airport to stay at the Lal Hotel. From its massive compound to the impressive traditionally-designed room I stayed in, I was pleasantly surprised during my stay for one I didn’t expect a resort hotel in one of the most ancient cities in the world....

I believe they have more rooms than the other hotels, they had a few tour groups of older German folks. I paid around $46 USD per night for a single tukul room which included a hot breakfast, wireless access, shuttle in from airport (normally 70 birr). For $60 you could use the amneities like the pool (the only one in...

The LAL Hotel is in a great location, within walking distance of Lalibela's rock-hewn churches, as well as the Saturday market. The facilities themselves are excellent quality, with spacious rooms (some with views of the valley), a pleasant garden to relax in, a restaurant that serves great food, and the only pool in town. But best of this hotel is...
