Central, downtown next to cafes, restaurants & supermakets. "Cheap, Safe & Friendly", "Excellent Rooms, Great food, friendly staff -nothing is too much trouble" according to our Tripadvisor reviews -Hotel Lecidere & Restaurant, Dili
I'm an Australian who was born in Timor Leste, 5 years ago I decided to return to Dili to renovate and run the hotel Lecidere, which was originally known during the UN peace keeping period as the Tropical Hotel.
I now manage it between Australia and Timor. It's been very challenging as both the work ethics and culture are very different, however you learn to compromise everyday and the experience is good for character building :)
Dili has the feel of a small country town and our location is very safe as it is the central business district of Dili (since the Portuguese colonization and then the Indonesian occupation) we are close to many restaurant & supermarkets (walking distance) and beach is only 10mins drive away, the beach near us is 2 min walk however it is not a swimming beach.
