The Discovery Inn is squeezed between two lots and it will never enjoy the facilities that a large hotel in a big lot might have, but I found that was more than made up for by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, who took the trouble to make sure that my stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The food is excellent. The breakfast menu changed daily and was always delicious and the Diya Restaurant has to be one of the best in Dili. The rooms are not large, but they are well serviced, and have all the amenities (internet, fridge, safe, enough power points and good TV, kettle and coffee/tea) that you would expect. My bed was perfectly comfortable and I slept well every night. The deck is a nice feature that provides a good venue for informal meetings and drinks after work.
Nevertheless, it is the attitude of the staff that is this hotel's biggest asset. They were always considerate, helpful and friendly and they turned what could have been an average experience into an enjoyable one. Working in Dili for three weeks, I was glad to be able to come back to the Discovery Inn at the end of each day.
