The view is panorama of the valley below. You can see for many miles. The staff were helpful, honest, and friendly. The price was $55/night, certainly not cheap for Lalibela but a good value considering the quality of the place.
We stayed for two non-consecutive nights, and had two rooms both nights (so we saw 4 rooms). Quality and décor were similar in all. We did not sit on the balcony as the sun was blazing but having it there for drying some clothes, and being able to open the sliding glass door was excellent. The rooms are good size and the beds are comfortable. The only downside was the very low flow shower.
Breakfast was good, especially the "special omelet". WiFi worked fine. Easy walking distance to main part of Lalibela (and even closer to restaurant Ben Abeba--definitely worth a visit).
