I stayed at Jerusalem Hotel during Ethiopian Christmas in January 2020. The hospitality was wonderful; Solomon went out of his way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The grounds are beautiful and lush, and a lovely oasis from the bustle of the city (at least during Christmas - it's much calmer the rest of the year). Sitting by the fire with a bottle of tej is one of my favorite memories from my trip to Ethiopia. Thank you Solomon, Desiye and everyone who helped make our visit so wonderful!

I spent a couple of weeks in Ethiopia with a group of people, 7 in total. I contacted from Italy the manager of the Jerusalem Hotel, Mr. Desiye (What's up +251 91 447 8058 desiye27@gmail.com) ahead of time, to plan our trip to Lalibela and without knowing each others, he helped me well beyond his job. In Lalibela he was fundamental in getting the best services at a very affordable price in peak season (upgraded rooms, great meals, dedicated guide, and much more). Elsewhere he was also able to book accommodations for us that you could not even find in the web, facilitate communication with difficult people and made it possible for us to complete our tour of Ethiopia smoothly. Mr. Desiye is a smart dedicated person, customer focused, gentle and smiling always there to help you, before, during and after your stay! He is 100% reliable and trustworthy... don't worry, you will be in good hands, that's why he is Lalibela's best kept secret!!! You can contact him via Phone/what's up at +251 91 447 8058 desiye27@gmail.com

We stayed at Hotel Jerusalem as part of our tour of northern Ethiopia. Our room was on the second floor. The room was clean and spacious and included a private bathroom. The owner and staff were all nice and pleasant. Our major problem was that the room was full of mosquitoes. We didn’t realize this until later into the night. All room doors open to a veranda, so we didn’t want to go out in the middle of the night to look for someone to do something. My husband killed at least 20 mosquitoes during that one night and we still got bitten. If you stay in this hotel, please inspect your room upon check-in. From other’s reviews it sounds like not everyone had this issue, so you can prevent this from happening to you by being diligent. It might be a good idea to ask if they can provide mosquito nets when you book your room. We ate one meal and had breakfast at the restaurant. Breakfast buffet included 5-6 items and was sufficient. The meal was decent.

Located in the heart of lalabela this hotel provides an authentic rural Ethiopian accommodation experience. The rooms were very clean and the staff are eager to impress. The hotel restaurant was open when we got up for the rock hewn tour and remained open well into the evening. A’la carte dining prepared fresh to order so ask what the daily recommendations are for the best dining experience.
