room in lalibela
“I really can't describe how amazing staying at Mengesha's place was. It was definitely one of my best experiences traveling. The room itself is spacious and clean, and you really get a sense of non-touristic, day-to-day life in Lalibela. Mengesha arranged a tour of the churches, a half-day hike, and dinner at Ben Abeba restaurant - and also joined me for some tej (honey wine) one evening. He is a lovely and attentive host who ensured that my stay was comfortable, fun, and interesting. While the churches are the city's main attraction, I strongly recommend saving time for a short hike in Lalibela. And dinner at Ben Abeba is a must.”
My name is Abebe, I offer a simple one-room house with a double bed (the blue house). The house is placed on my spacious property in Lalibela. If you like to stay with locals and enjoy the beautiful view on the mountains, be welcome to stay with me and my family. Your stay will be local Ethiopian style: toilet (with mountain-view). And a European style toilet / shower-cabine. Breakfast is included. Lots of nice places to go out and have a meal close to the venue.
“Abebe's Panorama B&B is conveniently located in a central neighbourhood in Getergie village (Roha). It is within walking distance to several restaurants, arts & crafts and souvenir shops and also well-stocked mini marts where you can buy food stuff, snacks, bottled water etc. Abebe's place is within walking distance to several other villages in Lalibela, the 11 rock churches, Mercato, the hospital, private doctor, as well as banks and ATM machines (Visa works). Abebe himself is a great host. He gives lots of local tips to help you plan tours within Lalibela itself and the countryside. It's easy to get a Bajaj not too far from Abebe's place with hassle free transportation to lots of places in Lalibela. Transport costs are inexpensive. I can highly recommend Abebe's Panorama B&B for the convenience, its central location to lots of amenities and Abebe's great hospitality.”
“This is by far the best place we stayed in Ethiopia. The rooms are spacious, clean and with modern bath rooms . the view from balcony is extraordinary. Wonderful staffs. I love everything about this small hotel. It is located a few minutes walk to the city center and to the famous Lalibela churches. really ideal locations. will definitely back to this lovely hotel.”
