I stayed at Discovery Inn from 25th June - 27th July 2014, and had a wonderful visit. The hotel staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and accommodating of my needs. Laundry service was the fastest I have ever experienced at a hotel (dropped off morning, back by afternoon - clean, pressed), the evening turn-down service included yummy peanut-flavoured chocolates, the free...

This hotel is one of the better options available in Dili. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating to all you needs. The restaurant has fantastic food and the happy hours and breakfast on the deck are very nice way to start and end the day. Will definitely opt for this place for future travels.

Discovery inn is a well run hotel with great staff. Cost is at the high end for Dili but as ever you pay for what you get. I travelled with my elderly but travelholic father, as tourists, for 6 nights in Timor leste. Not many other people do this, and tourism is not well catered for in the country as... More

I spent 11 nights at the Discovery Inn in Dili and highly recommend the hotel. Very helpful, conscientious, and professional staff. Nice breakfast buffet on an outdoor covered terrace. My favorite parts of breakfast were the fresh fruit, fruit compote made with star anise, omelet station, and local coffee. The late afternoon happy hour, with two free beverages and some... More

The Discovery Inn is squeezed between two lots and it will never enjoy the facilities that a large hotel in a big lot might have, but I found that was more than made up for by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, who took the trouble to make sure that my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The food is... More

I got 2 types of room during my stay, first was at 2nd floor, second was at 1st floor. The room at 2nd floor was small, not enough space to put my luggage on the floor. The bathroom was not really good, after having shower I always found the floor outside shower "flooded" because there's a small spot where water... More

The hotel bills itself as a luxury boutique hotel. It is nothing like this. Even allowing for the fact that this is Dili, the rooms are relatively depressing for $150pn. The first room we were shown was just behind reception and there was a lot of noise from the reception plus there were cleaning products all over the hallway and... More
