This hotel has new owners and is being updated. This is my 5th time at this hotel in East Timor and for the cost, I think is value for money in East Timor!! Clean, modern and new beds!! Freshly painted and everything is new!! Close to town, beach and resturants. Good aircon, bathrooms much improved. I had the superior updated... More

Rooms are basic (more than great having in mind you are in East-Timor) and the best is for sure the restaurant with great food and location which is half way city centre and half way to the best beach close to Dili Praia areia branca and portuguese on the way to the Cristo Rei! Would recommend. Even if you don't... More

The hotel does not match at all with the website... Friendly service. The 40 USD rooms are dark and poorly ventilated. The 60 USD ones are in the upper floor with the balcony, a little better. Breakfast just ok. Very nice fresh squeeze juices, not included... Terrible and extra loud karaoke at night, if you get one of these nights,... More

Last week, we had a reservation, 3 rooms for 2 nights. On arrival, they could only supply 2 rooms. Fortunately, the third person in our party was offered accommodation at a friend's home. Room was small, Light blocked by sheets hanging on a clothes line stretching across my window. Great view of hotel staff feet as they hung the laundry.... More

Hotel N, Manager at Hotel Novo Horizonte, responded to this review

Replying to the last comments in this webpage, to start the reservation was made thru a travel agency, in fact it was booked only 2 rooms, not 3 as it was mentioned in the post; then it was given a standard room, which is the price that you were willing to pay, these rooms have almost no view at all,...

The prices were pretty good for food and drinks (eg Australian wine $16 a bottle), but the food was average (the steak was terrible). The music was too loud, and kept being turned up after requests to turn it down. Service was ok, the usual in Dili: "hello, can you put your cell phone away/stop sparing into space and bring...

I stayed in a double 'delux' room, which is a slightly larger room that includes a pleather love seat. The room also comes with a simple desk, wardrobe, tv and mini fridge. But it is all very basic and the sheets and towels - particularly the towels - seem very worn, if not downright dirty. The room does have many... More

For its rate, I cannot complain but the hotel is a like an army barracks and with the UN police staying in the hotel, it sure completes the ambiance, probably one of the safest place to stay in Dili.The hotel offers bed and breakfast, the breakfast is passable, provides you the energy you need to start the day, Nothing fancy,...

In comparison with other hotels at Dili, it is quite cheap (~65 dollars for 2 for "deluxe" rooms, much better looking than the standard superiors). The mattress was pretty good; the room adequately clean; the bathroom OK, although the shower had absolutely no pressure and the water was tepid at most. We did not feel like lounding even for a...
