We were looking for an overnight stay after a very immersing trip to Baucau. The staff were very good. Our luggage was taken to our rooms. Everyone was respectful and friendly. Our taxi drivers did not know where it was, however and we had to ring them so they could direct the driver in Tetun in the end. The restaurant... More

Place is at the edge of town but easy to get to and to get around. Owner is very helpful (got us a lift to the water taxi and provided other useful info) Room is oddly through a maze of hallways in the back - no windows/natural light. There is a TV and fridge and AC. Bed is fine. Baggage... More

My wife and I stayed here for several nights in April 2016. If you want luxury then this is not for you, but if you want a clean, comfortable place, with friendly and helpful staff,then it is just right. Although not much English is spoken, most of the folks here can communicate OK, and make an effort to do so.... More

We stayed at the Lecidere again this year while volunteering in Timore Leste with the Alternative Technology Association (ATA). Once again the staff really made us feel welcome and look after all the team members. We had multiple trips into the remote districts and the hotel managed our multiple bookings very well and the trips to and from the airport.

We stayed here when we first arrived in Dili and arranged an airport pick up by the hotel. The Manager picked us up on time and took us to the hotel. It is very reasonable price wise and the manager Sanna and her staff were extremely helpful and accommodating providing good advice including how much to pay for taxis and... More

A less expensive option, but staying in a room without a window is unpleasant. In addition, the aircon unit was over the bed - so chilly breeze, or steamy night - difficult to find a happy medium. Hotel used to be the Tropical - taxi drivers may not have caught up. Good supermarket nearby, and waterfront is an easy walk.... More

Air conditioning was good in a hot city like Dili. Expensive for Southeast Asia, but cheap for Dili standards. Cats roam the inner grounds of the hotel. Location is okay, but nothing spectacular. Only thing great within walking distance is the Lecidere park. Nothing special, but expensive for a no thrills hotel. Atmosphere felt more apartment like rather than a... More

The hotel location is nice, only walking distant to the beach. However, the facility is very minimum. Not even water bottle provided in the room, not to mention coffee/tea maker. The room' wall, I think, is made with gypsum that we could hear the TV sound from other room and when we knock the wall we could hear the 'hollow'... More

Found the service great. The rooms were basic but very clean, with aircon, bar fridge, ensuite and TV. The restaurant meals were excellent, especially the US$7 buffet lunch. Free wifi available throughout the hotel.Close to supermarkets, the water front and easy walking distance to sites.
