Nice location, very comfortable and clean room with a stunning view of the mountains, welcoming service and very good breakfast. Airport pick up service. Works with a young, energetic and friendly guide - I enjoyed the tour of the churches very much.

Basic comfort with a view
This is a very basic hotel, with only breakfast, and subject to power outages as with the rest of the town. It sits a bit away from the main part of town, which actually made for a quieter night than what my friends' at a place right in town experienced and my room had a great view of the valley and mountains beyond. Although it doesn't serve any meals except breakfast, it is a very short walk away from a couple of very good restaurants (within other bigger hotels). The staff were very friendly and helpful. I sent an email ahead about airport pick up and a local guide - they didn't respond, but they had a driver at the airport with my name on a sign and a local guide in tow.

Comfortable, Clean, Great Guide
FikirandRay lodge was a great home base for a 1-night stay in Lalibela. Centered between the churches and the can't-miss restaurant Ben Abeda, I was treated to clean and comfortable rooms and very friendly staff. The first priority when I arrived was making sure I had a schedule to visit everything on my sightseeing list in a limited window of time. My tour guide was Yohannes, and I could recommend a better guide. Originally from the community, he spoke fluent English and had a passion for the history of Lalibela. He constantly made sure I was comfortable, well-fed, and found exceptional spots I never would have known about on my own. If you go, I would ask for him by name.

From what I saw of other hotels in the vicinity this is probably one of the better hotel options in Lalibela. The rooms are clean and modern, the internet is good, the breakfast’s are excellent and the staff are friendly and accommodating. There were one or two disappointments: No dinner available on my second evening because the cook had gone home and no water on my last morning. A large bucket of water with a jug was left outside me room to use for washing and flushing the toilet but as with the restaurant closure no proper explanation was given let alone an apology.

Excellent stay and tour of 11 churches
We stayed at Fiker and Ray for 2 nights. Staff were excellent and go above and beyond to help you out if needed. My husband and I were sick from the Simien Mountains and the lady receptionist was so accommodating and brought tea and food up to our room when we were too sick to go out to have dinner. Hot water is touch and go. Our first room had no hot water but we asked to move to another room on the second night and that room had hot water and stunning views. Breakfast was delicious! You can choose from a range of items such as scrambled eggs, omelette, porridge etc. You are also given bread and some spreads, and a really nice smoothie too. Just take note that it takes a while to come out so I would suggest ordering breakfast at least 35 minutes before your tour starts. We also organized our 11 churches tour through the hotel which turned out to be cheaper than what other tour companies were offering. We received guide Fikremariam a friendly young man with excellent English who was passionate about Lalibela and it’s churches. He was lively, energetic, and extremely knowledgable - we learnt so much from him, not just about the churches, but the history, and general information about Ethiopia. As per our request, he took us to eat at a local restaurant in between visiting the churches and then to a nice coffee/tea place as well. The 11 churches tour with him was by far our favourite tour in Ethiopia. I would recommend him to anyone and would rate him 10/10!!

Great stay!
My experience in this lodge was amazing ! The staff were super friendly and helpful and very accommodating to anything I asked for. The rooms are clean and exactly what I needed. It’s situated just few minutes walk from the center of the town and from a great restaurant that is known with its splendid sunset views; Ben Abeba. The food at the hotel itself actually exceeded my expectations. It’s a hidden gem in Lalibela. Once in, they will make you feel like family. I highly recommend it!

Dishonest charging
Receptionist overcharges and lies about charges, I.e takes money for taxi to airport but doesn’t pay driver so you have to pay twice. Charges guests for eating 1 banana and 1 orange. THTe room is advertised as spacious with a window and view. In reality, no window at all, poky room.

Amazing gem of a hotel!
I had a wonderful stay at the Fikir&Ray Hotel. The service here is INCREDIBLE! They provided free airport pickup AND drop off, and readily attended to every request. Breakfast was good and filling. Dinners were delicious and very cheap ($2-4 USD). Beer was cold and plentiful. I would highly recommend this hotel above any other in Lalibela. Simply a wonderful stay. Rooms and beautiful and spacious, with huge windows facing out to the hills below. The cons? Slow wifi and weak plumbing (but these are true of EVERY hotel in Lalibela - the town has horrible infrastructure). Given that you will face the same problems at ALL hotels in the city, I’d happily stay here again in a heartbeat.

Good value
We were well looked after by the friendly staff. They arranged our guide, Kalehiwot Zena, who was very friendly and helpful, and took care of all the negotiations. The room was comfortable and the services all worked. The restaurant breakfast was good as was the evening meal.
