“must stay here”
Reviewed 2 May 2009

Mountain view was booked so I stayed one night at the Jerusalem Hotel which was fine but Mountainview is simply spectacular! No barking dogs and rooster crowing to keep you up at night. Georgeous views. Excellent service. On one of the 2 days - there was no power or water for several hours during the day but this was for the whole town and the hotel did manage to have water in the evening and power so we were not at all inconvenienced. One minor point - we had laundry service done and the clothes returned were not well cleaned. Overall though, the staff were quite helpful and the restaurant had good meals - esp the fresh juice in the AM (safe to drink- made with bottled water) and BBQ beef skewers that were the best meal I had in my 6 weeks in Ethiopia.

Four friends and I loved this hotel! The facilities are new, modern and spotless. The service was good and the food was enjoyable. However, the best feature of this amazing new hotel is the view. The designers have capitalized on its location at the top of a hill with large windows and all kinds of patio and balcony space looking out into the valley below. One of the employees said, "Keep watching. The view changes with the time of day." He was right. Sitting on the patio watching the setting sun was as delightful as enjoying the sunrise from the dining room. We all agreed that we would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.

A new hotel with unbeatable scenic views from every room. Comfortable rooms each with its own veranda. Lovely dining room serving delicious food. The staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly. Maybe a little more expensive than the average but breakfast was included. Worthwhile.

two days before arriving to Laibela we were told by another couple that we should check out this new hotel in Lalibela that had just opened up and has by far the best location of the hotels in Laibela.

What can I say other than we felt extremely happy when we got to the hotel, we met the owner immediately and he gave us a quick tour.

The most impressive part was the private balcony in the room, we spent our evenings gazing at the breathtaking views of the mountains!.

The rooms are spotless and you have endless hot water!

The dining area is also beautiful done and they have a Jamaican chef that cooked us fabulous meals.

The price was also right 50$ USD for what luxury you get there it is worth it!.

We had our breakfast every morning on the large terrace that overlooks the mountains...quite the sight!.

We also saw where they are starting to build an outdoor pool, which I am sure is going to add the exact thing that will complete this place! A spot to cool off after full day of roaming around the ancient Lalibela churches.
We will for sure go back! we could have stayed a full week easily there!
