    What a lovely place! I stayed at the Discovery Inn while on a business trip in June. The staff were so friendly, the rooms nice and spacious, and the food delicious. I ate at the hotel nearly every night and enjoyed everything from the poached coconut fish to the lentil soup. The hotel also drove me to/from work every day... More

    I stayed at Discovery Inn on business for a week in June. I absolutely loved Discovery Inn. Incredibly friendly, helpful and courteous staff, lovely individually prepared breakfasts, fruit basket on arrival and even the occasional free drink and canapés at the bar! Plus the Wifi is speedy, unlimited and free. I honestly can't praise this place enough. I found Hotel... More

    Accommodation was comfortable and nice. The staff were all very friendly and happy to assist with anything needed. If you want to stay in Dili just out of town then I can recommend this hotel. When you book be sure to ask for an airport pick up as they will collect you from the airport and you can organize a... More

    Small hotel with very small rooms, many without a window to the outside, but adequate. The selling point is the restaurant and food, especially Indian. . An Indian chef who knows his stuff. Cheap it isn't, but worth it now and again. Far removed from your average curry house here and in Indonesia. But.. with only 2 exceptions, the staff... More

    Staff always friendly and rooms spacious and comfortable. I travel every couple of months to Dili and apart from friendly staff there is a spirit of can do and nothing being too much trouble. it is a bit more expensive than competitors nearby but very secure with guard on the door and very honest staff.

    Staff were very welcoming and the manager spoke English well and was extremely obliging. Lots of little extras included. A nice western style hotel with good wifi, hot water, tv (including Australian Chanel) the room was very spacious. Restaurant there was also fantastic.
