This is the forth time I have stayed here. Clean rooms, comfortable bed and the best restaurant in Dili with a top wine list. Staff are really helpful with good English and remembered me and my drink by my third stay. Noy, the restaurant manager is particularly good.

My favourite thing was the little chocolates provided... More
