I have stayed at DBH several times on my visits here and recommend it. Facilities are basic, you need to show some patience with the staff and it is a distance out from areas like the Mall ... but (and its a big but), rooms are clean, aircon and wifi work most of the time and the bar / cafe...

The rooms are very tired, but the beds are comfortable and the prices are half what most places are charging. The food is good and equally affordable. The internet wifi is reliable, which is saying something in Dili. If I was bringing my wife, I wouldn't stay here, but when I'm here on my own working, and just somewhere to... More

The Dili Beach Hotel is a great meeting place for all Australian, NZ and European travellers. Good food at realistic prices, 6 TV screens showing Rugby Union, Rugby League, Tennis, AFL other major sports and , god forbid.....the round ball game. Aussie host and owner gives a warm welcome to everyone and the range of beers is incredible. A must... More

I love when a hotel is well located, and even more if it is waterfront. Add to this a swimming pool and a sports bar, where lots of foreign get together to watch games and have a beer. The hotel is simple, but just right if you look for an informal beach atmosphere. Even though I used to live in... More
