Sora Lodge
great views, good spot for sunsets and for watching the birds riding the thermals, very friendly staff, reception able to recommend guides (in this case the excellent Muluye Tsegaw - Muluye_tsegaw @ who runs Zaglo Ethiopia Food wasn't amazing, but there are a number of options in the and around the town.

a night away at sora lodge
my husband and I had a lovely time, beautiful view from our room where we could read and have coffee in the morning. stunning view for sundowners and breakfast at the restaurant, very friendly staff who helped connect us with a guide to tour the local churches.

There are better places nearby.
For Entebbe, look for a place that has air conditioning. The al fresca dining is nice, but if it's raining everyone will be crowded into the dining room.

Happy Camper for 3 Nights
I stayed at Sora Lodge for 3 nights in November and was perfectly happy. Airport pickup and return (shared shuttle, 100 birr) were smooth, check in even more so. The lodge has wonderful views whether you are in your tukul, restaurant, reception or outside bar, the sunsets are gorgeous. Wifi is available at the reception. Staff was always friendly and helpful and the restaurant has a great mix of Ethiopian and western foods. Sora also arranged my guide, Alex Geta, whatsapp +251 92 262 7352. He was very professional, happy to share facts and legends about Lalibela's history and also happy to give me a hand when climbing up or down. I believe most people spend a single day in Lalibela and visit the in-town churches, which are truly mind-boggling. As I had more time, I also spent an afternoon visiting Asheton Maryam (about 45 minutes from town) and a full day trip to visit 4 of the Bilbilla Circuit churches, all with Alex and a driver arranged by Sora. These trips give you a better idea how beautiful the landscape is, how people live and the opportunity to meet the priests of these less-visited churches. My Lalibela suggestion would be to spend 2 full days, one for in-town churches and one for a side trip of your choice.

Lovely views, reasonable value for money.
We enjoyed our stay at Sora Lodge for the most part. The staff were friendly in the restaurant and the food was tasty. The best thing about Sora has to be the views which are spectacular from the restaurant, terrace and garden, with vultures swooping around. The room was comfortable, with a nice balcony, however the shower wasn't working when we arrived and never really picked up much, although we did report this and they said they had fixed it (it was a little better the second morning). Mornings start early in Lalibela due to the chanting from the churches (at around 3.30am) but that is part of the experience. If you are visiting the sites at Lalibela, it is a convenient place to stay and you could walk to see the churches, although we didn't and we were glad of being driven there due to the high altitude. It has to be said, that Sora Lodge was one of the better hotels we stayed in during our trip around Ethiopia and it seemed also to be one of the better ones in Lalibela itself. It represents reasonable value for money.

Great views and rough comfort
This is the best or second best hotel in Lalibela and has a great view. Unfortunately everything else is rough. Rooms are clean enough but beds and pillows are torturous. Food selection specially at breakfast is minimal.
