Air conditioning was good in a hot city like Dili. Expensive for Southeast Asia, but cheap for Dili standards. Cats roam the inner grounds of the hotel. Location is okay, but nothing spectacular. Only thing great within walking distance is the Lecidere park. Nothing special, but expensive for a no thrills hotel. Atmosphere felt more apartment like rather than a... More

The hotel location is nice, only walking distant to the beach. However, the facility is very minimum. Not even water bottle provided in the room, not to mention coffee/tea maker. The room' wall, I think, is made with gypsum that we could hear the TV sound from other room and when we knock the wall we could hear the 'hollow'... More

Found the service great. The rooms were basic but very clean, with aircon, bar fridge, ensuite and TV. The restaurant meals were excellent, especially the US$7 buffet lunch. Free wifi available throughout the hotel.Close to supermarkets, the water front and easy walking distance to sites.

You do get everything as promised in a hotel - TV, attached toilet with hot/cold water, bed, towels, the works. Perhaps the amenities have seen better days. But for what you pay, it is value for money. There is a handful of options to choose from for breakfast, and the coffee is wonderful. As a small establishment, they don't have... More

I have just spent a month staying at this hotel. The staff were very helpful and polite. If there were any issues (light globe or battery ect ) they were prompt to attend to the problem. The room was basic and clean with western toilet. I stayed in apartment A on the first floor.They provided a gas cooker and a... More

I have stayed here off and on for the last 12 years when it was the tropical and now hotel Lecidere. While they have put in more comfortable beds and better bathrooms they have lost the personal touch which made people loyal. The breakfasts are appalling, if you even get them. Coffee is poor and they tried to charge me... More

I've stayed at Hotel Lecidere for both short-term stays as well as for long-term trips. The hotel is ideal for those people working as consultants with the World Bank or other international NGOs. Hotel Lecidere offers you all the amenities of the most expensive hotels in Dili but for half the price. The location is perfect -- one-minute walk to... More

I'm heading back for my third stay at Hotel Lecidere shortly because Alana, Shirley and the rest of the staff really look after me. I have stayed up to a month at a time for work and find the hotel a great home away from home base. Work is only a short taxi ride away and the hotel is also... More

Firstly the staff are excellent! Alana and Shirley couldn't have been more helpful. My room had a kitchenette, air-conditioning, windows and a door to a small veranda. The bed was comfortable. Supermarket (Kmanek) is around the corner. Fresh fruit and vegetable market is on the foreshore - turn right when you reach the foreshore. Many restaurants are nearby too. Taxis... More

I stayed in the studio apartment for 5 months and couldn't have asked for a better base to come home too after a full day of work! Alana, the owner/manager was very helpful and ensured all my needs and requests were met. It was quiet, clean and central to the beach, shops, restaurants and bars. The staff are very friendly...
