I wasn't quite sure what to expect on my first trip to East Timor, and I based this stay on the reviews here. The hotel itself is very pleasant, the staff are very friendly and helpful. I had room 208 which was right next to the deck bar (as in, I could walk 20 steps from my door and I...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed November 30, 2016

I am a long term business traveller - my normal stay is 3 months. This gives me a unique view of most hotels - long term. The big difference is that a hotel has to be consistent over the 3 months in terms of performance. Discovery Inn achieves this consistent performance easily - it never misses a beat. Not the...

I couldn't have been more comfortable during my stay at the Discovery Inn. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the food is some of the best in Dili. The hotel is located in an ideal spot - only a few blocks from the beach and around the corner from good restaurants.

We stayed four nights at the discovery inn in Dili. The rooms are lovely, beds are comfortable and full amenities are provided. The laundry service is efficient and cheap. The deck bar is lovely to sit and have a drink in the evening and the Diya restaurant is superb. Would highly recommend discovery inn!

The Discovery Inn was very comfortable, the staff helpful and overall provided all I needed during my stay in Dili. The Diya restaurant, Gloria Jeans and Deck bar all integrated within the hotel meant I had all I needed in one location which was extremely convenient. The rooms were comfortable and overall I enjoyed a pleasant stay.

Easy to walk around town and to the museum. Short taxi to the airport and cinema. Near the seaside. Don't expect much from the room - clean and simple. Breakfast at Gloria Jeans rather grim. Restaurant and bar in hotel good. Management very helpful- saved us from a flight snafu by calling a friend and helping us make alternative arrangements...

We stayed in Discovery Inn for 3 nights. The location is great, walking distance to city centre and the major museums. There are several Spas nearby - if you want to treat yourself with a massage or pedicure. The service in the hotel is friendly. I would opt for a douple rather than a twin room. At least our twin...

Multiple visits to the Discovery Inn over the past 3 years leave us in no doubt that the accolades for this exceptional small hotel are well earned. The staff could not be more professional in their hospitality, attentiveness and support. While some of the rooms are better located than others, all are clean, comfortable and well provisioned for a short...

Dili is arguably not the easiest of Asian cities, so the Discovery Inn provides a safe harbour and a relaxing sense of comfort. From the welcome drink and the free tasties in the upstairs bar in the early evening, to the comfortable modern-ish rooms with all facilties, this is definitely the place to stay in town. Breakfast is downstairs in...
