Stayed recently for 3 nights on business and was happy with my stay. Rooms pleasant, comfortable and clean. Staff wonderful. Breakfast good, yummy fresh bread rolls. Nice bar area with live entertainment. Location good for walking around. Yes internet is expensive but expensive everywhere in Dili. Would stay again and recommend.

I stayed for 1 week in early May 2005. Room was comfortable and staff friendly. Restaurant and bar provide good options if your time is limited or if it makes too hot outside. Food and extras are a bit expensive. WI-FI Internet is slow and expensive.However airport pick-up/drop-off is complimentary. Location is great for grabbing a taxi outside (otherwise is... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. It’s a standard business hotel with well-functioning facilities. The room is new, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. HOWEVER, it seems to me that the hotel is trying to get every cent out of you: The corporate rate I received did not come with free Internet. So I paid $25 for 7 days but this allows... More

My air conditioning turned into a heater in the middle of the night -- that was fun Staff ignored me because a diplomat was staying at the hotel; they would routinely start speaking with me and then walk away to attend to him

I have stayed at this hotel three times before but this time i decided to move out after two nights as had failed to meet my expectations and needs as was planning to be there for 9 nights. They also forgot to pick me up from the airport as they have done in past. Being a strict vegetarian food was... More

stayed here for 4 nights all I can say I really enjoyed the room. The hotel built during the Indonesian time and has been very well known since that time as one of the upscale hotels in Dili. Though it's old, they had already refurbished all the rooms, so you wont find any leak pipe in the bathroom or rotten... More

The whole feel of Dili is like i stepped back in time, and this hotel is no different. Exuding a little old world charm, Hotel Timor is comfortable if nothing else. The staff are happy, friendly and helpful. My room was small yet comfy, the beds a little too soft for my liking, and the bathroom clean, albeit the shower... More

I stayed here on my first visit to Dili, because it was where the rotary club of Dili met. Now a little dated, with no lifts, but only two floors to climb stairs.The restaurant fare was quite reasonable. The room decor was wooden, and the bathroom a little small. At the time, there were still regular power outages. Now with... More

I spent two nights at the Hotel Timor. To be fair remember all the trials that the new country of East Timor has been through it is unreasonable to expect 5 star luxury. If you want a clean safe place to stay while in town then this place is fine. There are more modern hotels springing up around Dili so... More

Hotel Timor just keeps getting better. I recently spent 6 days there and I couldn't have been happier. The service is always excellent and it is still the default meeting place for all the movers and shakers in Dili. They have a lovely pool, cafe and restaurant. The rooms are spacious and clean with excellent air conditioning which is really... More
