Booked this hotel online, paid about $70 night for a suite, which while basic was quite comfortable and roomy. Breakfast was included and free wifi which worked very well in restaurant and generally ok in room. Medium fridge, with tea and coffee making facilities. No toiletries or extras provided so bring your own. Staff are friendly and the restaurant is... More

I was pleased with my stay at Katua's, the room was clean and the aircon and TV worked well, the bathroom was old but worked, so that's why I only gave 4/5. Laundry was included in the room rate, which was really nice. Wifi in the restaurant worked well, but not so well in the room on the 3rd floor.... More

No one expects to be pampered in Timor-Leste but a clean environment is a basic human right; Katua’s fails to provide exactly that. Although we booked the priciest room on offer, a suite for three people, we are shocked to find an Indonesian-era cell with an outrageously dirty floor: dust everywhere. Walking barefoot will turn your feet black like beaches... More

We have been using this hotel for a year now. Great central location, friendly helpful staff and great value. The breakfast is basic but really good value for a morning meeting. Friendly, Good value, good location, great staff. Best value in Dili

I stayed here for 3 months while on assignment. The location is very convenient to supermarket and local eateries in definitely a nicer part of town unfortunately the ANZ opposite closed while I was there so you have to go further to get money out. The food was very average definitely better to be found nearby including discovery next door... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in a suite. Cost was $75 per night. The rooms are fine - quite clean, bathroom ok for East Timor. The breakfast was the same each day - fruit, bread, scrambled eggs and sausage - it's fine but gets very samey after a while. There is free wifi that we could pick up in... More

This is my third visit (and hotel) to Dili. Great location, the rooms are relatively clean, and good food is served at the restaurant downstairs. Unfortunately breakfast is only OK (not many choices: eggs, sausages, ham, two kids of bread, two kinds of juices, fruit salad, and coffee/tea), I saw many people bring their own food (cereal, yogurt, jam, etc.),...

There are a couple of Portuguese restaurants in Dili, one of them is in Karua's Hotel. It is rather expensive in Dili but it is A/Ced space ! It is worth going there. Their featured Portuguese dishes are good but you may as well try Today's Menu. It is more reasonable. Unfortunately, they don't serve a glass of wine, so... More

My room was spacious and confortable, and internet was working well most of the time. The hotel is very well located next to ANZ bank and a few restaurants, in the middle of Dili. The service was great, there's a cute restaurant and the breakfast was good with various options. Overall a very good choice in Dili, for 75 dollars.
