As it’s name suggests, Cliff Edge Hotel perches on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sweeping valley and mountains beyond.
The 32 en-suite rooms have double or twin beds, and are furnished with table and chairs. Their balconies have lovely views over the valley. The hotel has Wifi, and offers a laundry service. Transport from the airport, and to and from the sites of Lalibela, can be arranged. Tour guides are available, and the hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the churches and a 20-minute walk from the market. The reception is also happy to assist with reconfirming flights and other travel arrangements.
Lalibela is the jewel in the crown of Ethiopia, the site of the most famous churches and the scene of many major religious ceremonies. The churches have been active for 900 years, and there are over 600 priests and deacons. The churches are carved below ground level and ringed by trenches and courtyards, and are connected to each other by a tangled maze of tunnels and passages.
