I spent two nights at the Asheton and found it to be adequate and pretty average, by Ethiopian standards. The key here (and with any budget accommodation) is to inspect the room before committing! The first room they showed me the door frame was damaged and the door (even when locked) could easily be pushed open. The second room had...

Lalibela is supposed to be the most expensive place to stay in Ethiopia. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Asheton Hotel and was quite happy with the cost. I found the room and bathroom clean and plenty of hot water from the shower. My mattress was fine and the beer was served cold. I loved sipping a cold beer in...

In contrast with other reviews, my stay in the Asheton was great! My room was nice and clean, and the courtyard was very pleasant. The hotel itself is in a convenient, central location and there was a WiFi connection which was mostly working (internet is not that good in Ethiopia generally) -- the best was the staff, specially the owner...

This hotel offers nearly good rooms, at least above average in this price range. The place is quiet and Staff is helpfull, they changed my room when I saw that my toilet flushing was out of order. What was not cool : - there are no bins in every room so your room is a wasteland after 2 days. -...

For the price of 400 Birr (May 2016) it's definitely a good choice of budget hotel close to the city center. The stuff is friendly and there is a lovely garden. Rooms are nicely decorated, have hot water (although there is not that much water coming out). Stuff can organize a shuttle to the airport (100 Birr pro person and...

Myself and a friend I had been travelling with for a couple of weeks arrived in Lalibela having taken the 3 day local buses strung together option from Aksum. More than a bit worn out we were happy to find room at the Asheton, and also to meet Ejigu. He gave us our room and later proved invaluable in booking...

When we arrived, we were all impressed by the nice courtyard. However, the condition of the bathroom disgusted us after we checked in, and the wifi was pathetic...The boiler in our room was leaking making funny noises. We requested to change room, but the new room had a very small water pressure. After knowing our next day plan, the manager...

It's one of the cheaper hotels in town, 16 rooms and it's in a good location. there's hot water, but you can't cool it down. there's wifi but it doesn't reach the rooms, the restaurant isn't great and definitely overpriced.

We only stayed at the Asheton for one night. Arrived pretty late from Mekele and despite having reserved a double room over the phone earlier in the day, were told that the only room left didn't have a working lock and did that matter? Of course it did matter, so we went for a twin room but the bathroom didn't...
