Roha Hotel’s building was constructed in 1976, and was built to reflect the monolithic churches of Lalibela. In 1992, under the management of the government-owned Ghion Hotels Enterprises, it was converted to a hotel. Ayat Share Company, a leading Ethiopian property developer, took over the hotel in 2009.
The 64 en-suite rooms are made up of 56 twins, 7 doubles and a suite. All rooms have satellite TV, intercom telephone and Wifi. The restaurant serves Ethiopian cuisine and some international dishes. The bar has a selection of local and imported beers, wines and spirits. Camping is permitted in the garden, and there is plenty of car parking.
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, arguably Ethiopian’s top attraction, 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. The famous Bete Giyorgis, otherwise known as the Church of St George and possibly Ethiopia’s most photographed destination, is located in Lalibela.
