We stayed at the Lecidere again this year while volunteering in Timore Leste with the Alternative Technology Association (ATA). Once again the staff really made us feel welcome and look after all the team members. We had multiple trips into the remote districts and the hotel managed our multiple bookings very well and the trips to and from the airport.

We stayed here when we first arrived in Dili and arranged an airport pick up by the hotel. The Manager picked us up on time and took us to the hotel. It is very reasonable price wise and the manager Sanna and her staff were extremely helpful and accommodating providing good advice including how much to pay for taxis and... More

A less expensive option, but staying in a room without a window is unpleasant. In addition, the aircon unit was over the bed - so chilly breeze, or steamy night - difficult to find a happy medium. Hotel used to be the Tropical - taxi drivers may not have caught up. Good supermarket nearby, and waterfront is an easy walk.... More

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 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
