Mountain View Hotel

The fascinating rock hewn churches of Lalibela are an essential venture when visiting Ethiopia. After a day of exploring, The Mountain View Hotel's balconies are a great place to rest with a sundowner and Lalibela's amazing views.

Lalibela, Ethiopia
Mountain View Hotel
  • Breathtaking views over the valleys below

  • Close to the main rock churches of Lalibela

  • The rooms have balconies from which to soak up the views

  • Large rooftop terrace, perfect for a sundowner or looking at the stars through a pair of binoculars


Located at an altitude of 2680 metres, the views from Mountain View Hotel over the Lasta Lalibela mountain chains are simply breath-taking. Your surrounding landscape can be viewed in panorama from the hotel's balconies and through the plentiful windows that make up its stone-and-glass design, a homage to the rock hewn churches of Lalibela.

Built by Getachew and Metaso, two former guides, in 2008, the thirty room Mountain View Hotel is located a 15-minute walk from the town of Lalibela. This relative isolation in comparison to other accommodation is easily overcome on foot or by vehicle in no time and for some a situation such as this, may be preferable.

The Jamaican head chef at Mountain View will indulge you in both European and local cuisines during your stay. All rooms at the hotel are of the same standard, a comfortable and contemporary en-suite arrangement that is possibly the best presented of the privately owned wider Lalibela area lodges.
