Comfortable basic hotel, but by no means luxurious. Ensuited rooms with shower and WC. Internet. Some rooms a bit noisy due to the covered veranda area being bar&restaurant + live entertainment some nights. Fee / night includes basic breakfasr( eggs oozed however you wish!) daily laundry also included ( great service!) Swimming pool onsite. On the main beach road, so... More

Having lived and stayed in many hotels in many countries I'm used to basic accommodation not always perfectly clean but I have never stayed anywhere as dirty as the Dili Beach Hotel. The room I stayed in had been given a rudimentary brush and the bed sheets may have been clean (or may not) but the bathroom quite obviously hadn't... More

Dili is not a cheap city to stay in, although the Dili Beach is not the cheapest budget accommodation at this present time with the closure of the East Timor Backpackers, I think it offers the best value for money. Their 20 dollar Backpacker room is like a small apartment for 4 people with a good sized bathroom, kitchen, sitting... More

Dili Beach Hotel is something of a landmark in Dili - and back in the day this was a popular choice for the NGO crowd. However today it is pretty poor - the standard and deluxe rooms are shabby, only the self contained bungalows at the back are worth considering, but only if you haggle a discount. The bar is...

Dili Beach Hotel has a charm I don’t find at any other hotels in Dili. It’s not one of those new, slick places you find everywhere, but a family hotel with history, and warmth. Yes, I do like it. I started travelling to Dili 20 years ago, lived here a few years and have spent quite some time at hotels... More

I have stayed at Dili Beach many times over the years on business trips to Dili. It may be a little tired in places, but the friendly staff and excellent food make up for any short comings. Safe secure, huge rooms, and a great location, plus excellent value for money.

I had a nice large suite with regular laundry service and very helpful staff. It was more room than I needed. The wifi was reliable which was very important to me. Loved the sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. Also very much liked the friendly cats keeping me company at dinner.

Stayed here three nights with a couple of friends. Rooms were OK, bathroom OK, restaurant OK. The pool was nice and quite. Location was good. We walked to the city centre in around 15 minutes, which is totally acceptable. The service was very good, and the staff was attentative and helpful! All in all good value for money for a... More
