Kwok K. Couples Hong Kong, October 17, 2014
Good location but a few thing to consider...

We arrived Male in a late flight, and coz it's the 1st time we visit Maldives, so to play safe, had booked a hotel nearby the airport. We had made a reservation with the hotel before the day we arrived for a round-trip 'transportation' between the airport & hotel at the cost , and so when we arrived the airport, a hotel staff was carrying our name plate ( to be exact, we arrived before he came in, so we waited him for a few mins). He guide us to take a ferry (10 mins ride) and then a taxi (15 mins), to the hotel. Altogether from airport to hotel is around 35-40 mins. Later on we found that the ferry cost , and taxi is around . And both are running at 24 hour service, so in future, we think is easier to take these transportations ourselves, plus is less expensive. The room we choose is a deluxe room, with a size of about 150 sq ft. Had a double-bed, a bathroom w/toilet & shower inside, air-cond, ceiling fan, TV and a small balcony. It also provide a simple breakfast of egg, sausage and toast. Juice and coffee are complimentary. All in all, it's location is excellent for the 1st timer. The only downside of it is, Male city is really really crowded, so if you are more flexible, I would suggest stay away from Male, and consider Hulumale instead. It's an island next to Male, with connecting road/ferry from the airport. It provide you with more choices plus a relaxed environment. Lastly, if you can taking the transport yourselves, you might want to exchange some USD to local rufiyaa. is sufficient. Of coz, you can pay in USD, but in not in your favour.

Truly bad experience
Speechless. This can hardly be classified as a "hotel". Room is small and dirty, the reception is bad, will definitely not visit again.

Gone seriously downhill

Location, Location, Location
This is the 5th or 6th time I have stayed here over a year and a half and the standard is deteritoting terribly. The staff try their best but forgot a phone booking I made during the a national holiday. The internet is very bad, the pool is empty, no hot water in some of the rooms, noisy aircon units, NONE of the TV and cables work and the breakfast is dire. Nice coffee though. The internet only really works in the lobby area and breakfast area but a/c is broken so unbearably hot. Will no longer stay here on my Business trips.Better value for money nearby.

Good for stay one night and Easy access

Breadfast, location & friendly staff
Our ground booked three rooms, but only two room when we stayed in the hotel.They arranged the other hotel room for us. It was 5 minutes by taxi, but the room including the kitchen, big room. The breadfast including bread, sausages, eggs and fresh fruits. The room prices including transfer. The staff are very friendly.

so so, just a night stay

good location
the hotel location was good, just a 1 minute walk to reach the main shopping street of Male City. walkable distance to the ferry terminal as well. The room condition was so so, we requested a queen bed but they gave 2 joined single bed which is a bad sleeping experience for a couple. The air-conditioner and the fan was old, just able to switch it on and off, no speed and temperature control is available. Well, the fan speed was at the highest speed, it was too cold when it was switch on and too warm if it was off. In-correct wifi password to log in, we did not manage to enjoy the wifi. The TV was a satelite TV was not functioning, stated that the weather is not good and no channel is available, but the weather was nothing wrong instead. By the way, it was slightly expensive with the condition given but it was still ok to be an transit hotel for one night.

It was a pleasant stay

Easy check-in and out, airport shuttle was provided and it was good value for money
It was a pleasant stay as I was on a business trip and would be out mostly. The hotel is located in a by-lane but once you figure it out it is not too difficult to locate. The hotel itself is very close to the shopping center and thr olympus stadium. Hotel itself is neat and clean with decent breakfast which was included in the room rent. Overall the hotel is value for money.
