My daughter and I enjoyed our brief stay at the Discovery Inn. The service is excellent, starting with complementary airport transfers. The front desk staff are friendly and very helpful. The hotel rooms are comfortable and clean. Although the hotel is not luxurious by any stretch, they try very hard to offer a high end hotel experience. We would definitely... More

This hotel is a good choice for middle of the road budget travelers and business travelers. I had an awful experience in room 201 - the toilet didn't flush and the room was cramped and smelled of stale smoke, but was moved to room 208, a much better and larger room despite the weak internet connection and noise from the...

Staff could not have been more helpful as we came and went, storing our case between visits, always arranging breakfast specially before the regular time for early departures, clean and very comfortable. Restaurant was excellent Indian food. Great value stay in Dili.

Hotel location downtown is ok, but rooms are located at the back lower floor of the building facing an internal courtyard - claustrophobic. rooms are clean, staff pleasant though not always available. No swimming pool. Bar is pleasant, but is located at the back of the building with no view.

Attentive staff make this a great place to stay. The rooms are air conditioned and the hotel is located a couple of blocks from the beach. An added benefit is their restaurant, one of the better eating venues in Dili.
