    Dili is easy to get around and there is plenty to see particularly if you are interested in East Timor's recent history, you can see where tragic events in the liberation struggle happened and the museums are well presented. There are excellent beaches, good places to eat with local food at reasonable prices. Try to get to the moonlight cinema on Friday night-you can sit by the beach and have a meal while watching a film.

    Fantastic .I had a great time.

    Fantastic .I had a great time. Could have stayed much longer and checked out more places and looked around more. The history of this place is off the scale and at times very confronting. The people were very friendly to us and surprised to see us travelling on the microlets.Which the easiest and best way to get around the city. Otherwise you pay a fortune in taxis. As an Australian the exchange rate at the time was woeful .Was a bit expensive as all in US dollars.

    Make sure you take enough cash in $US, it’s very hard to find a place that takes credit cards (and if so it’s VISA only) and there don’t seem to be any foreign exchange places. Global roaming doesn’t work either.

    Stayed for 4 days and 3 nights over Easter 2023.

    Stayed for 4 days and 3 nights over Easter 2023. It was a great place to wind down - walked up to the Cristo Rei statue, all of 570 steps, well worth it. Visited the Santa Cruz Cemetery - sadly not much signage about the massacre in 1991 - however can read up on the internet before going there. Went to Areia Beach, beautiful soft, clean white sand - suitable for swimming. Also visited the Timor Plaza Shopping Centre to buy a simcard and phone credit to call the blue taxi as required. Stayed at the Plaza Hotel (not the one at the Shopping Centre, there is one closer to the seaside). Accommodation was safe, clean and comfortable with a Chinese restaurant adjoining the accommodation - meal times are very flexible. Loved the lush tropical vegetation and the mountains and sea, stunning scenery. It's easy to see that Dili is still developing, great improvements in infrastructure, services and business will no doubt forge ahead in the future. I would recommend Dili for solo travellers, safe to walk around in the day time.

    Dili is a fantastic get away from Darwin.

    Dili is a fantastic get away from Darwin. For food buffers that are many restaurants offering culturally diverse dishes such as Timorese, Chinese, Portuguese etc. I particularly, enjoy the beachside restaurants along Areia Branco, towards Cristo Rei area for breakfast or lunch and happy hour on Friday nights at Timor Plaza. If you're there over a weekend, try a day trip over to Atauro Island and for longer stays, a trip to climb Mt Ramelau or to Jaco Island to see endangered species of turtles.

    Dili is a beautiful coastal city, for those who loves religious spots you will find many fabulous spots here. For examples, Cristo Rei, the second world biggest Christ statue after Brazil. When visiting Cristo Rei, you need to prepare yourself for trekking the stairs, there will be around 850s steps to conquer, and you need to pace them constantly. Hmm, Once you reach the top, your sweat will get rewards. The view is fabulous! Have a try :)

    The duplex is in a good location, easy walking distance to shopping and tourist sites. you won’t believe how comfortable and spacious it is. The pictures are an adequate portrayal of what you will be getting. You will not be more comfortable anywhere else in Dili. The owner Norman is the greatest. He’s well educated, knows a lot about the world and is as honest as they come. I feel like he is a brother and he made my trip to Timor Leste a memorable one.

    Simple hotel. Great if all you need is a bed, and am out all the time. You get two small bottles of water everyday from the reception (provided they have them). I stayed here for almost a week, using it as a base to explore other parts of Timor-Leste with a rented 4WD (free parking on the hotel ground). There are also some supermarkets, and restaurants close to the hotel. The price paid for this hotel compensate for any downside that you may experience.

    The hospitality of the manager, he picked me up from the airport at a very short notice. He gave me plenty of suggestions for exploring Dili ranging from vegetarian food options, transport to buying souvenirs. He pays attention to every guest's needs and is very flexible and kind. I highly recommend to book this place if you are in Dili. You will be surprised by the size of the heart of the owner. He is now a friend. 100 out of 10!!

    I loved staying at Casa do Sandalo. It’s one of the few old Portuguese houses still standing in Dili, making it a unique piece of the Latin world in Asia. If you’re looking for a different experience, this heritage stay is the place to be. It’s not modern, but incredibly cozy, and the staff is very friendly. The highlight for me was the garden and the architecture. Kudos for the owners to restore that old property.

    Everything was perfect, the staff very welcoming and always eager to help, the inner garden was very relaxing and very quiet, there is no noise from the street at all. You can tell the place has been decorated with style, with wooden furniture and a beautiful garden. The location is also very central. I recommend this place 100% to stay in Dili

    The room facility was much above my expectation to be like an apartment. The small fridge is a fancy device to cool down water and drinks in the hot weather of Dili. The staff was nice to help me check in and book a taxi. The breakfast was served in the neighboring Great Wall Restaurant and was quite delicious.

    Location is pretty good. The Timor Plaza is within 10 minutes walk. You can go to city center with bus no. 9 at the intersection outside the facility. The owner is friendly and helpful. He provided me important information and advice about the country.

    Excellent location, given the current conditions of other accommodation suppliers at the same range in Dili, Timor Hotel is pretty good! The stay was so comfortable. Breakfast offers quite limited options but fresh and with good hygiene.

    The location to the city was ideal. It's one of the more inexpensive hotels in the city, so do not expect luxury. As a 21-year-old wanting to travel to a niche country, it fit all of my expectations :)

    Located on the same building as the Timor Plaza Mall provides great food options. Short taxi ride to city centre of Dili. The hotel can arrange a taxi to visit Cristo Rei which is an easy climb.
