What can I say ... down to earth great little hotel right on the beach.... Very nice small hotel. The rooms are comfortable and almost " homelike" ... The furniture is a mix of old retro style, clean in good condition and the bed was a very comfortable queen sized one. The bathroom was clean, the towels were fresh and the air con and ceiling fan all great. There was a small veranda sitting area out the front with a nice table and chairs. Great bar and great restaurant, the food was cheap, tasty and freshly prepared. The breakfast was a buffet continental style one ( cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, juices and spreads) but cooked american was available for extra cost. The staff are awesome , very helpful and friendly and willing to help with whatever you need, I needed to pick some things up from central bank, and I needed security to take me for safety , this was no issue to them. Security honestly is no issue, there is a good strong gate and fence around the hotel, that is locked at night until about 7 am the next morning. The room has a lock, and there is a safe at the reception area, we went on a tour we left our passports in their safe with issues. The hotel is well placed for tourists, it is a short taxi ride to the Timor Plaza, and walking distance to some nice restaurants. We will stay here again when we next come back to Timor-Leste.
