We stayed in a double room on the topmost floor which had a beautiful view, comfy bed and hot water. Everything was fine - even the food in the restaurant - until we went to sleep and found bedbugs crawling all over the sheets.

It is a very nice hotel in the walking distance form the famous Lalibela churches. The rooms are clean and the view is nice. The barthrooms are outstanding in Ethiopian standards. The staff is very obliging and kind, no matter the time of night or day. I recommend the injera here, in the hotel restaurant.

We stayed at Alief Paradise Hotel which is with a small climbing near the famous church of Saint George (Biet Giorgios) and 1,5 km away from the center. The hotel was very clean and the breakfast and food was very good. Lalibela there wasn;t connection in internet.

Stayed here with my wife and we had a great time. The food is great and the owner and staff are really nice and helpful. Our room was big, clean and comfortable and had great hot water shower, one of the best we had during our trip in Ethiopia. All and all a simple wonderful place.

This is a great place for independent travellers. Rooms are clean (I asked for one with a balcony and they moved me to one). The hotel can arrange you a guide to see the churches and local trekking (recommended). Wifi was generally OK in the communal areas.
