This contemporary wood and glass hotel hangs off the edge of the mountains at the end of the Lalibela road, affording the most astounding views of the surrounding area and the most incredible sunsets I saw anywhere in the country during my 22 day stay. The rooms were big and clean, the bathroom was modern and always had hot water, we never had electricity issues, although I understand that in stormy weather all bets are off. The European food is fair, but they do an outstanding job on traditional fare and are very accommodating. One Wednesday, a fasting day in Ethiopia, I asked the chef to make me a vegetarian plate and was treated an absolutely declicious spread of veggies and legumes beautifully arranged on a platter of injera, the Ethiopian daily bread. The archtecture of the hotel (designed by an architect from Bahir Dar) is a cross between Frank Lloyd Wright and the indigenous geniuses that brought us the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela - the wood mirrors the various crosses and even monkey head design of the churches. The staff is thoughtful and helpful. It's far from town, but worth it (and I generally insist on being in the middle of things). I have absolutely no reservations about recommending this hotel - but don't expect to get a room during festivals.
