Mount View Hotel

Have you been searching for a room with a view? Perched on the hilltop above the town of Lalibela is where you’ll find Mount View Hotel, the answer to all your panoramic dreams. A contemporary boutique hotel with stunning vistas of the surrounding highlands is the ideal place to stay as you visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lalibela’s rock-hewn churches.


A flight from Addis Ababa will transport you from the bustling city to the tranquil town of Lalibela where your 2680 meter retreat awaits. You’ll uncover the spiritual center of Ethiopia inside the impressive and intricately carved churches of Lalibela where pilgrims still travel today.

Your room

Each of the 30 bedrooms boast breath-taking views of the diverse landscape below making waking up that little bit easier. Minimalist interiors create the perfect space to relax and soak up the secluded atmosphere of this remote hotel. You’ll understand the expression drink in the view as you step out onto your balcony with your morning coffee and are greeted by a spectacular mountain vista.

Why we like it

We love contrasts and the modern architecture of Mount View Hotel and the historic Lalibela churches are certainly different. Here you’re just far enough from the town to feel as if you’ve escaped but close enough to explore the architectural marvel of Lalibela with ease.  Throw in the fact that it’s an amazing spot to watch the sunset and you have a Black Tomato favorite.
