It is a very good hotel with amazing views! Good Wi-Fi in the room. Food at the hotel restaurant is delicious! Staff is great! They were trying to please and solve any our problems!

We had a lovely two-night stay in this hotel with very friendly, smiling staff and fabulous views from the rooms. Clean and comfortable rooms. Only two important issues: the wifi was not working in the rooms and hardly in the common areas (although internet is generally an issue in Ethiopia), and there was a bad smell in the batroom, probably...

I've been to Lalibela several times, and Cliff Edge always takes the cake. Located a 15 minute walk to the entrance to the Lalibela churches, the hotel is well situated and every room comes with a balcony facing the canyon providing awesome views. Its also a ten minute walk from the Ben Ababa restaurant. The hotel is clean, simple, and... More

What a wonderful experience I had! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The view was exquisite and the rooms were neat and clean. I'm very particular about cleanliness and they passed my test.

The rooms were clean and the showers were great. The staff made the stay so enjoyable and remembered my name from check in. The view from my balcony took my breath away every time I looked out. Breakfast was delicious. Most of all the people were welcoming and made the stay exceptional.

We stayed at the Cliff Edge Hotel during our four-day stay in Lalibela. 'Cliff edge' describes it exactly--wonderful views over the plains below Lalibela. This is not a five-star hotel, being a bit more modest in scope; but it was very comfortable and clean, and the staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The breakfast included with our room... More

The best hotel in Lalibela is probably the Mountain View -- the Cliff Edge is next door and half the price. If you stay here, definitely have dinner there at least once. But why would you pay more? The Cliff Edge has beautiful and well-appointed rooms with immaculate Western-style bathrooms and jaw-dropping views at a very affordable price (we paid... More
